Behind every new home is a well-planned strategy to successfully install piping, appliances, ventilation system and everything else the first time around. Here’s quick runthrough of what to expect if you’re a prospective homeowner looking to relocate to the Clackamas, OR area and into a new home:
Plumbing renovations in older Clackamas homes are absolutely essential to ensure pipes don’t crack and leak, which could potentially cause thousands of dollars in water damage and expensive repairs. Here are some plumbing concerns you may need to address when renovating your home:
Aging fixtures: From leaking and running toilets to ancient water heaters, the home can have a lot of decades-old appliances and plumbing systems that simply need to be repaired or replaced. As a general rule, water heaters last about 10 years before they need to be replaced. Toilets, showers and tubs typically undergo normal wear-and-tear, including scratches, clogs and overworked pipes. Generally speaking, these fixtures can be repaired and maintained for decades to come if the homeowner decides to keep original bathroom appliances.
Out-of-date piping: Corroded pipes, leaking joints and galvanized supply piping are just some of the silent, yet serious plumbing issues that an old home can run into with little warning. Water damage caused by old, leaky pipes can cost a homeowner thousands of dollars in only a few day’s time. Take care to investigate the condition of your home’s plumbing system and replace old pipes during renovations.

Apollo jetted the basement drain line in our old 1927 Portland house. The line has been backing up thru the floor drain for a while. The technician cleared out the line with the hydro-jet, and it’s running great now. On-time and professional!"
