Having been in business for fourteen years, we have completed many projects for both home and business owners all throughout the area.

If the repair is actually a need for repiping services, we will provide a temporary repair until the entire project is complete.
What Is Repiping?
Unfortunately, your plumbing will not last forever. There may come a time when you need to have the home or office repiped. This is a process in which our plumbers remove both the hot and cold plumbing pipes from your home and replace them with new ones. There are a few reasons why this may be necessary:
- If you notice rusty or black colored water, experience low water pressure, or suspect a leak, degeneration may have taken place.
- Older homes may have been originally plumbed with lead pipes, which is a serious health hazard.
- Mineral deposits, such as lime, can prevent proper flow and warming of the water.
Although this process will not take forever, it could cause some inconvenience to you for a few days. It’s important to speak with our plumbing professionals so that you know exactly what to expect.
Pipe Leak Detection
Our pipe leak detection services allow us to determine whether a leak has occurred in your home’s plumbing system. The methods of detection vary depending on the system in question. We generally use either infrared or laser technology – these are the latest advances in the plumbing industry. If we can find and solve your problem today, we can save you money, energy, and time. A single leak could cause considerable damage to both your home and your health. It’s best to handle the problem promptly. When you put your trust in Raymark Plumbing, we never let you down. We perform pipe leak detection by moving through the following steps:
- Locate the initial leak
- Follow the leak to its source
- Repair the leak, using either epoxy or a new pipe (depending on the damage)
- Examine the surrounding plumbing pipes for further leaks
Pipe Leak Repairs
If you’re at home one day and notice discolored faucet water or soaked carpeting, chances are your plumbing system has a leak somewhere. You might also notice high monthly water bills. Under normal conditions, the copper pipes used in most homes last for a long time. Over enough time, however, these pipes may develop leaks that can cause significant damage to your home, health, and bank account. It’s best to fix any leaks sooner rather than later.
At Raymark Plumbing, we send only experienced plumbing technicians to your home to perform pipe leak repairs. They will first detect the source of the leak, using the latest tools and technology. After that, they will carefully survey the plumbing system and craft a plan of action.

New Pipe Installation
Homeowners choose to have new pipes installed in their homes for a few different reasons. Most people make the decision based on low water pressure or regular leaks in the system. With new pipes, these issues become a thing of the past. Alternatively, if you’re building a new home, state-of-the-art pipes will work well for years to come — as long as you have them professionally installed and maintained.
At Raymark Plumbing, we work with only high-quality materials, ensuring your new pipes have an extended lifespan and do their job well. We’ll first remove the old piping, which could host mold or mildew at this point. Then, we’ll install the new pipes. Most home piping is made of either copper or PEX. PEX is more malleable, and can be snaked into walls without making significant holes. Copper, on the other hand, is durable and long-lasting. Both are wonderful choices for new home piping.
Underground Pipe Repair
There are a couple main solutions for repairing an underground pipe. First, you could replace the entire length of the pipe, by securing a cable at one end and a new one at the other end. The pros to repairing your pipe in this manner are that it is typically less labor-intensive and requires minimal digging. The second approach to repairing your pipes involves digging down to the pipe at the leak location and replacing a small section, as opposed to the entire pipe. This pipe repair strategy is usually more affordable than the first solution.
