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.
Also, you will have to pay for the part of the work undertaken within the premises of your house, which is considered private, up to the connection with the city’s public sewer system. If a municipal sewer must be repaired, the city will take care of it, but this must be coordinated with your contractor so that the work can be carried out at the same time. You will be asked to get a construction permit for drain replacement work and an excavation permit to dig because often, part of the work involves public territory. Some building elements may also have be to be removed and reinstalled to do the work, such as the balcony, which requires a joiner. When the ground is frozen, drain replacement can be even more complicated.
