Copper Repiping Services

We understand that dealing with aging plumbing in your older Seattle home or building can be a real hassle.

As your trusted plumbing partner, we at Ben’s Plumbing are here to guide you through the process of repiping. Our seasoned team of copper repipe specialists have been proudly serving the Greater Seattle, Eastside and surrounding area since 1995, planning and executing successful repiping projects for homes and businesses alike.

PEX vs Copper Piping

PEX vs Copper Piping, photo Ben's Plumbing
When determining the best material for repiping your plumbing, it’s important to consider your options. PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) is a popular and durable choice known for its reliability.

PEX doesn’t rust, and offers better insulation compared to copper piping.

The “winner” when it comes to PEX piping vs copper ultimately depends on your unique situation – factors like local building codes, water quality, and your specific budget and needs will all play a role. That’s why we always begin with a thorough assessment.

As part of our copper repiping service in Seattle, our experienced team will carefully inspect your property, listen to your goals, and review your options in depth. From there, we’ll provide our professional recommendation on the best piping material for your home or business.

Pros and Cons of Copper Piping

If you’ve decided that copper piping plumbing is the right choice for your home’s repiping needs, it’s important to fully understand the material’s pros and cons. We want to ensure you feel well-informed and empowered to move forward with confidence.

Let’s start with the key benefits.

Pros:

Longevity

These pipes have an impressive lifespan, typically lasting 50 years or more with proper maintenance.

Water Quality
Water Quality

Copper forms a biostatic atmosphere that actively resists bacterial growth, helping to preserve the purity and freshness of your water supply.

Durability

This piping is highly resistant to damage from high temperatures and UV light exposure, making it a resilient choice for your property.

Sustainability

As a recyclable material, copper has a lower environmental impact compared to some other piping options.

Cons:

Cost
Cost

Copper piping does indeed tend to have a higher upfront cost compared to some other options like PEX. However, we believe the long-term benefits and reliability of copper make it a worthwhile investment.

Flexibility
Flexibility

Copper is a less flexible material than options like PEX, meaning it requires more fittings and labor to navigate bends, turns, and connections in your plumbing system.

Corrosion

In certain water conditions, copper can be susceptible to corrosion over time, which could potentially lead to material degradation and leaks. This is something we always carefully evaluate as part of our assessment process.

Ben's Plumbing is AWESOME! They are very responsive, very flexible, very communicative and great to work with! The team had great knowledge and provided suggestions over the phone to attempt to unclog a pipe. They were able to squeeze me into their schedule and it was great because they helped resolve an issue before it became a larger issue. Brian came out and helped provided some preventative support as well. Great, honest people and I recommend them 1000%!

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Our water heater decided to start leaking at 3pm on a Friday and the team at Ben's Plumbing got back to me quickly, got me a bid that wasnt outrageous, and scheduled me for their first slot on Monday morning. The installers arrived on time, were quick, thoughtful, and did great work. I'd totally recommend Ben's Plumbing to anyone.

Nic from Ben’s Plumbing was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING fixing the leak from our toilet yesterday with skill and finesse! Upon arrival, he immediately expertly assessed the problem(s) and proposed an excellent approach, with options, to resolve the issues. I had complete confidence in his capability to handle the expected and unexpected with this repair. I highly, highly recommend Nic (and Ben’s Plumbing) for any work, and we will be coming back again for additional projects and needed repairs at our house. Nic is an excellent communicator and explained everything clearly to a plumbing novice, answered all of my questions, was extraordinarily neat in opening up the drywall and then tidying up at the end of his work. Because of the blessing to me of Nic, I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that a trustworthy repair has been completed. Thank you, Nic, and Ben’s Plumbing!

Easy, kind, down to earth from start to finish. I felt the costs were transparent and the work was done well and efficiently. We had a water heater issue and they took care of us within 24 hours on the weekend. Text communication was an option and online payment made things easy. Will use Ben’s again.

"Really nice people, from the office to the field. Our engineer was super helpful and got the repair done quickly, including a trip to the hardware store to get the right part for our quirky old house. I’m bummed that we used a “name brand” service on our recent sewer project - wish I had know about"

"I hired Ben's to take care of the plumbing for two bathroom fluffs in our home - the first visit involved removing the old faucets and the second visit was to install new faucets and a (tricky) Kohler Reach toilet. I can't remember the first plumber's name, but Nick did the installs and they were both great to work with"
