Our Heating and Cooling Technicians, Plumbers and Electricians are licensed, uniformed and professional. They respect your home and your property. They go as far as to put on booties before entering your home and roll out a protective carpet as well. The diagnostic or dispatch fee that we charge allows our professionals to carefully evaluate your problem and/or inspect your systems so they can provide you with a flat rate price to do the work you’ve requested. Once you approve that price and all that it includes, Cranney Companies will complete the requested work for you.
Constant sewer pipe drain and garage drainpipe backups are obvious signs of serious drainpipe issues. If you are experiencing this type of problem, then you should consider a trenchless sewer pipe replacement. This is an advanced technology that is very efficient; particularly when a sewer drainpipe runs under a driveway, house, sidewalk or large tree. At Cranney Home Services we are experts in trenchless sewer systems in Northshore and Greater Boston, and we can fix your drainage backup problems with a minimum of disruption to your property.
The trenchless approach is far superior to the traditional method of digging up old pipes, either by hand or with a machine, and putting in a new pipe. This is not only an extremely labor-intensive process that can result in a great deal of property damage, it is also very expensive – especially if the drainpipe is difficult to access.
First, a technician will need to excavate a hole at the beginning of the piping and at the end. Then, the drainpipe will be exposed and small sections of the pipe will be cut out. Next, the technician will feed a large steel cable between the two holes; attached to the cable is a metal, cone-shaped apparatus that breaks the old pipe to the exact size of the new trenchless drainpipe.
This new pipe is made of black plastic that is between four and six inches in diameter. The pipe does not have joints, so the risk of leaks will be eliminated. Also, this technologically advanced pipe will be impervious to tree roots. The cone-shaped head bursts the old pipe and pushes it out of the way as the cable is pulled through, making room for the new drainpipe. The entire job normally takes about a day or two to complete, although the replacement of the new pipe can normally be completed in a few hours.
The biggest advantage of trenchless sewer pipe replacement is the fact that your old drainpipe can be replaced without a great deal of excavation damage to your yard. Also, replacing your drainpipe can prevent an expensive flood from occurring in the future.
Because there will be little to no digging, your landscaping will be spared, and your patio and driveway will be preserved because we will not need to remove any concrete. Even better, you will not suffer any future leaks or have to deal with backups or drain cleaning.
