Traditional vs. Trenchless pipe repair: Which is right for you?

The most common cause of sewer line troubles is roots that have invaded your pipes. The roots find moisture wherever they can get it, even in the smallest of breaches. Once they’re in, they grow and expand, eventually clogging up your line.

No matter the cause of your sewer line problem, letting it persist is not only an annoyance, but can pose a health hazard as well. That’s why Feehan offers a couple different repair options for you to choose from: Traditional or trenchless.

The technicians at Feehan give an in-depth look at both repairs, leaving it up to the homeowner to choose which option is best for them. Here is a step-by-step of each one that was actually performed in Prospect Park.

So, now, if you ever have problems with your sewer line you’ll have a good idea of what Feehan can do for you.
