Why Choose Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation
Trenchless methods have been around for many years, but relatively few people have heard of this advanced technology. It has numerous advantages for your home or business.
It’s faster. With the cured-in-place process, the work takes just hours, not weeks like it does with conventional methods.
It’s cheaper. You don’t have to worry about the cost of restoring landscaping, driveways, walls, basements and floors because little if any digging is required. That’s how it got its name, trenchless.
It’s cleaner. You no longer have to worry about mess outside in your yard, or inside the home, apartment building, factory, commercial building or hospital.
It reduces your downtime. You can continue operating your building while the work is done. That means no economic loss, especially helpful for restaurants and other retail establishments. For residential work, you can stay comfortably in your home while we handle the pipe work.

Types of Pipe Rehabilitation Work
At Blue Work, we are experts in all phases of trenchless pipe rehabilitation. Here is an overview of the three methods we use.
Sewer Drain Pipe Lining
Sewer pipe damage comes from a variety of causes, most commonly:
Roots growing into the pipe
Missing pipe floors
Broken sewer pipes
You might have pipes that are backing up. Or leaking into the walls of condominiums from an apartment roof rain leader drain. We can handle the problem quickly and thoroughly.
The trenchless method uses a new pipe liner that is as strong as if you used conventional methods of re-piping. The work takes about three hours and has a warranty good for 50 years.
Your new pipe reduces the interior diameter by just 5%, which is basically not noticeable to effective functioning. We need just a single entry point for installing the new pipe liner, which can be from the roof or an access hole at the building’s exterior. Our trenchless methods are cheaper, cleaner and faster than traditional re-piping.
Epoxy Pipe Lining
Pinhole leaks are common in areas where water pipe infrastructure is deteriorating, which is the case in our area. These pinhole leaks happen often in corroded or otherwise damaged pipes, leading to slab leaks.
This is a dangerous situation because the pipes are often made of copper or galvanized steel, which results in water lead leaching into the drinking water. And all leaks lead to expensive water damage.
With epoxy pipe rehabilitation, the inside of the pipe is coated with epoxy that is EPA-approved and food-grade quality. It is able to permanently seal all the leaks in the pipes.
The coating is put on in various thicknesses, depending on the job. Oil refineries, hotels, homes, hospitals, aircraft carriers, apartment high-rises, water pipelines and factories all have different requirements. We have the skill and training to select the right level of coating.
Pipe Bursting and Slip Lining
In certain circumstances, the lining method can’t be used on the pipes. In that case, pipe bursting is the method of choice. The new pipe is installed and simultaneously physical destruction and outward displacement is used on the old pipe. The new pipe has the same or even a wider diameter as the old pipe. In specific cases, a method called slip lining is used, which pulls a new pipe into the old pipe.
