Estimates the Golden Rule way
At Golden Rule, our goal is to give each customer the kind of estimate that we'd want for ourselves—one that's transparent, honest, and free from sales pressure. And that's exactly what you'll get when you call us for your whole-home piping.
- Cost of your estimate: FREE
What factors affect the cost of a whole-home repiping?
- The pipe materials: The two most common types of pipe material used in modern repiping projects are copper and PEX. Copper is the more expensive option of the two, but may offer benefits that aren't available to PEX. An expert plumber from Golden Rule can help you determine which is best for your home.
- The size of the home: This won't come as a surprise, but larger homes tend to have more piping and more plumbing fixtures, which in turn increases the scope and size of the job. After receiving your free estimate with Golden Rule, you'll have a much better idea of the project's scope and how long it will take to complete.
- Contractor experience: Repiping projects are considerable both in scope and cost, so it's important to get more than one opinion—and more than one estimate—for the job. The lowest estimates can seem enticing, but the value delivered is ultimately what matters. Value includes the experience of the plumbers, the warranty protections, the financing options, and the peace of mind received from reviews, years in business, etc. We expect that after you've done your due diligence, you'll see that Golden Rule offers more value by far than any other plumbing contractor in Des Moines.

Whole-Home Repiping FAQ
If you find that your home has multiple leaks scattered throughout the home, and the repair bills are mounting up, it might be the age of the pipes causing the issue. Alternatively, if you find that you have decreased water pressure and you know that your pipes are old, there may be a significant build-up of mineral deposits left behind by hard water.
The benefits of professional repiping are clear. Not only will you have an entirely new plumbing system, but you give yourself the peace of mind that everything will work for years to come. Your water pressure may increase, your system will be less prone to leaking and clogging — everything will run that much more smoothly.

I feel fortunate to have worked with Golden Rule...
Golden rule exceeded my expectations for my home remodel and repiping project. All the employees that I worked with were very courteous and professional. They were extremely responsive to how I wanted the project to turn out and made the job look easy even though it was quite the challenge to figure out how to get plumbing to all the different parts of an already built 1880's home. I feel fortunate to have worked with Golden Rule and will make them my first choice in the future!—D. Gordon
