When indoor plumbing became more commonplace nearly 100 years ago, there were many materials that were used for piping. Cast iron, copper, and galvanized steel were among those materials, and each one offered a strong, viable option for plumbers. However, copper is the only material that has truly stood the test of time, while galvanized and cast iron pipes have begun to rust and break down. At Gladiator Repipe in San Jose, we know that copper provides long-lasting plumbing that will work well for many, many years in your home.
Unlike PEX or CPVC piping, copper won’t expand or contract under temperature or pressure changes, and it looks good wherever the piping is exposed, such as in laundry rooms or utility closets. When we start on your whole house repipe, we will make sure each copper pipe is securely positioned and connected, but unlike galvanized pipes, copper doesn’t require as much support or reinforcement behind your walls. Its lightweight and durable construction makes it the ideal choice for new pipes, and your children and grandchildren will enjoy functional and worry-free plumbing 60 to 100 years from now.
