    What factors affect the cost of a pipe leak repair?

    • The location of the leak: An exposed pipe is a lot easier to reach (and thus more affordable to repair) than a pipe that’s, say, behind a wall or buried underground. An expert Golden Rule plumber can perform a thorough evaluation to quickly locate the leak. From there, you’ll receive multiple options on how to tackle the repair, based on the needs and your budget.
    • The age of the home’s pipes: Once a home’s pipes reach a certain age, corrosion, wear, and tear can take their toll. This creates a more systemic problem where pipe leaks begin to occur more frequently. If constant pipe leak repairs are an issue for you, a whole home re-piping may offer a longer-term solution.
    • Cosmetic repairs and cleaning: It may take some digging or demolition work to reach a leaking pipe. And since we’d never leave your home with trenches in your backyard or holes in your walls, we may need a bit more time to get everything back to normal for you! This may add some additional time and cost to the project. But the results will be worth it.

    Pipe Leak Repair FAQ

    Here in Des Moines, the most common reason for pipe repairs is frozen pipes. This is especially true for a pipeline that’s exposed and outdoors. As the ice expands inside the pipe, it will either crack the pipe or cause it to burst wide open.

    Other prominent reasons for pipe repairs include:

    • Blocked pipes. A blocked pipe under enough pressure can easily crack or burst.
    • Corroded pipes become brittle and more susceptible to cracking and breaking down
    • Tree roots. While not common, tree roots can push into underground pipes and cause them to crack.
