No. The skill and equipment required for trenchless pipe repair will usually cost more than traditional dig-in-place repairs.
According to statistics, the average cost for trenchless pipe repair is typically around $6,000-$12,000, while dig-and-replace repairs are usually between $4,000-$13,000 depending on the costs associated with manual digging, depth, and pipe location.
However, this cost can double when buildings, neighborhood streets, utilities, sidewalks, or driveways lie above the broken pipe. Displacing and restoring these fixtures can make traditional pipe repair costs as high as $25,000, if not more, for a single job. Although in these situations, the cost of trenchless pipe repair remains the same because digging is no longer necessary, trenchless specialists can fully repair or replace your damaged pipe without unnecessarily digging up the soil.
When it comes to pipe repair, the most expensive factors aren't the machinery or materials but the uprooting, landscaping, and lawn damage that ensues.
Trenchless Pipe repair saves money.
