trenchless pipe lining in Charlotte, NC

If your pipes are cracked and still stable, you may benefit from trenchless pipe lining in Charlotte, NC. This is one of the fast, minimally disruptive ways we deal with pipe issues of this nature at Next Level Pipe Lining. As for what causes pipes to crack in the first place, some of the common causes are discussed below.

Tree Roots Looking for Water

North Carolina is home to more than 14 billion trees. If you have a few of these trees on your property, roots on the hunt for water could get into your underground pipes. Cured-in-place piping, or CIPP pipe lining, is one way damage from tree roots can be quickly and affordably fixed.

Not Maintaining Your Pipes

If you're not diligent about pipe maintenance, you could have issues with cracks. This can happen if you're not having regular pipe inspections done, or if you're not mindful of how you use your drains.

Sewer pipe lining may be able to remedy cracks related to poor maintenance as long as:

  • The affected pipe is stable
  • Damage is generally limited to a single area
  • There's sufficient access to the affected part of the sewer line

Soil/Ground Movement

Pipes can also become cracked due to ground movement or soil shifting. This may occur from erosion, or from having excavation work done too close to your underground sewer, water, or drain lines.
