The cost of replacing your Poly “B” plumbing system is dependent on many important factors related to your home. Replacing the system is almost always invasive to an extent. Luckily, professionals have devised quick ways of re-mediating Poly “B” and making your home exactly as it was before.
Below are the factors that will dictate the price of the job:
- Interior Access
- Size of the House
- Number of Bathrooms
- Amount of drywall removal necessary to access piping
Cost is always a deciding factor when considering to replace Poly “B”. You must be aware that In general these jobs are not cheap. Depending on these factors the price can range quite significantly. The average price for having your plumbing upgraded is generally between $6,000 and $15,000. This price should include complete replacement of Poly “B” with a PEX (or equivalent) piping system and all repairs to walls and ceilings during the Poly “B” remediation process.
A typical Poly “B” job takes roughly three weeks to complete, with the first being dedicated to the plumbing aspect of the task, and the following two being focused on the drywall replacement. The investment, however, is a great one none-the-less. Your replacement plumbing system will breathe new life into your home, and you will achieve peace-of-mind that you will not be a victim of any leaking water systems, or the costs that come with an unexpected pipe failure.
