Trenchless pipe lining has recently exploded in popularity thanks to its low-hassle, cost-effective nature. If you’re considering a trenchless option for your Nevada sewer repair needs, here’s some information to help you understand the costs and budget for your project.
Cost Per Foot for Trenchless Pipe Lining in Nevada
While it would be nice to have a simple linear-foot rate that could be applied to every situation, the truth is that each project has a unique set of circumstances that significantly affect the total project cost. The rate ranges from just $80 per foot up to as much as $250 per foot, with the average right around $160 per foot.
Several factors are used to determine where you’ll fall in this range:
- Length of repair: The longer the area to be relined, the less you’ll pay per linear foot. It’s rather like buying in bulk, where you get a discount if you buy more at one time. While you’ll save money per foot if you need a large restoration area, a short repair will still often be less expensive overall than a more extensive project.
- The diameter of the pipe: Because they require more lining material, larger diameter pipes logically cost more to line than smaller ones.
- Labor needs: While trenchless pipe lining is much faster and less labor-intensive than other methods, there is still some work to be done. If your pipe is more difficult to access, has a lot of connections, or requires extra labor hours to reach and prepare, the cost may be a little more.
Cutting Costs with Trenchless Repair
The real magic with trenchless sewer repairs lies not in the cost per foot, but in terms of the costs, you avoid altogether. During a typical dig-and-replace sewer repair, large areas of the property are destroyed in the process, which makes the overall cost of the project skyrocket. For example, if your damaged pipe runs under a wall or driveway, the cost to remove the concrete or asphalt and repave it after completion can drive the cost up thousands of dollars.
Trees are another obstruction that can increase the cost of a traditional repair. If you have trees growing above the pipe, they would have to be removed so the trench could be dug below. Tree removal runs $150 to $800 per tree, which can add up quickly. Then after the repair is over, you’ll have to pay for new seedlings and wait years for them to reach maturity before your property’s appearance is restored.
At the worst, if the pipe is damaged all the way to the main and sections of street or sidewalk have to be removed, your project cost could rise as high as $30,000 for a residential repair. Commercial replacement run even higher, as parking areas and commercial landscaping are restored.
