As time passes, sewer line wear out and many Montreal homeowners may have problems with them. Sewer line replacement is no small matter and unfortunately, people only realize that there is a problem when the sewer line gets blocked or water doesn’t flow smoothly. This phenomenon is often caused by a drainage issue. CAM CONSTRUCTION’s first recommendation is to get a plumber to give you a camera inspection report. After this evaluation, it’s possible to determine if the problem comes from the sewer line. Generally, the drainpipe is punctured and the ground is uneven, leading to water and waste accumulation. So, blockage is bound to happen, all the more so because roots can penetrate an old pipe for water uptake, which creates major chaos.
Replacing a sewer line in Montreal is complicated work, given the number of steps to be taken. If there’s a tree near the drain, a forest engineer will have to assess the risks of the tree falling over or its health being affected by the work. Often, depending on the borough, such an assessment is mandatory.
