Re: Re-Piping House Cost?
Large contractors means very little. Cpvc is about right for Florida and the south east. It works and is proven, easy to install. Also ask about Pex. Similar qualities as PVC, installs quicker and has higher burst ratings than most anything else. It's flexible (comes on reels) so it should be ideal for rework like you need. It may not be acceptable for your local codes but just about all new residential work in upstate sc is moving in that direction. Pex takes a special connector and tooling to do it right but it's quick and very easy. Copper prices and installation costs are through the roof. With Pex, you have mostly all direct home runs and no couplings. For costs, they'll range all over the place depending on the work load of your contractors and their ability to handle the job. A total rework is a tough job. I guess you'll need drywall work as well after it's all done. Try Angie's list. Worth the subscription.
