Trenchless repair can save your sewer line this spring


The pipes that carry wastewater away from your Roanoke home play a key role in maintaining your family’s health and comfort. But it’s too easy to put maintenance off since they are out of sight and out of mind. Many homeowners simply forget about their underground sewer pipes — until it’s too late.

While you’re not paying attention, your sewer lines could be under attack by roots, shifting ground, clogs, and corrosion that can damage pipes. By the time many homeowners are aware of the problem, they face expensive and disruptive repairs.

The most common approach requires digging a trench in the homeowner’s yard to expose the pipe. The time-consuming and costly process, which can take a week or more to complete, can permanently damage landscaping or interrupt household routines.

Southern Trust Home Services offers a convenient and cost-effective alternative to digging. Trenchless sewer repair technology delivers the same high-quality results as digging without the disruption, saving homeowners time and stress. Using a single access point, our skilled Roanoke plumbing experts insert a brand-new pipe into the existing line. Powered by a hydraulic motor, the new pipe splits the old line as it is pulled through and fits snugly into its place.

Most trenchless projects can be completed in one or two days and have minimal impact on landscaping. Sometimes digging is still the best option, but in many cases trenchless can achieve the same result.

If you’re experiencing persistent clogs or slow drains, or if you smell gas or sewage or see damp patches of grass, it may be time to repair or even replace your sewer pipe. Call Southern Trust Home Services at (540) 343-4348 or contact us online so we can diagnose the problem and offer the best solution to fit your current situation.
