"Repipe Specialists of Illinois did a great job from start to finish. They were professional from the initial appointment when a quote was provided to the end of the job. They were true to their word and had the job completed in the timeline they said, even after some surprises along the way. Highly recommended."
"It's been a few years. Happy happy!! Everything works fine. Copper looks so shimmery and bright. Excellent workmanship and highly recommend."
"I highly recommend Repipe Specialists. They have the most experience from what I could research and they had good references. This is the company you want to contact for repiping."
"Amazing. Promised the work would be completed in a couple of days and they actually repiped (copper) in ONE day. The following day plasters came and beautifully fixed any holes that had been needed. HIGHLY recommend."
"Repipe Specialists recently did the repipe on our home and we could not be happier with the results. We reached out to more than 12 local plumbing companies and only 2 responded and were able to give us quotes. Neither of which included the wall cutting or patching and neither would do PEX in our house, saying that it wasn't to code even though we had confirmed with our village that it was. From the very beginning Repipe Specialists were responsive and thorough with the quoting process. Jason, our salesperson, arrived right on time and did a thorough job of quoting and explaining there processes. Once we chose them, we worked with their team who arrived exactly when they said they would, were very hard working, organized, and very conscious of keeping things clean. The piping was done in less than a day and performed flawlessly and when the patching crew returned after our village inspection, they did just as good a job as the piping crew. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to repipe their home."
"Called Repipe Specialists to get an idea of what it would cost to replace the old galvanized pipes in my house. They quickly scheduled an appointment to look at the house and got me an estimate. They were able to provide me with financing at a fantastic rate. As for the work itself the pipes were done in a day. They were efficient and very friendly. The were careful to cut into as few walls as possible and the patching was done the next day. The patches turned out great! A light sanding and some paint and you'd never know. The pipes are great and I would do it again! Thanks,"

We replace existing fresh hot and cold water piping in residential homes, as well as in multi-family complexes.
We perform repipes with the highest quality, made-in-the-USA PEX tubing and Grade L copper pipes.
Repiping services we do not offer:
- Wastewater piping
- Gas piping
- Irrigation systems
- Epoxy pipe lining(we believe that pipe replacement is a superior solution vs lining old pipes with epoxy)
- General plumbing services
Often, we are able to complete a home repipe in a single day with the city inspection and wall patching following right behind. Your water will be off during the middle of the day while we are repiping your home, but you will always have water by the end of the day.
Yes, we are a fully licensed contractor in each state that we operate in.
We only use the best PEX tubing and copper pipes, both made right here in the USA! Our Estimators will help you choose which material is best for you. Whichever you choose, they both come with lifetime warranties.
We use the Uponor PEX system of tubing and components. Unquestionably the best engineered PEX system on the market. There are no chemicals, glues or solvents in PEX. The PEX system is also entirely lead-free.
PEX is superior in quality, comes with a lifetime guarantee and provides the cleanest water supply for you and your family.
Copper quality varies dramatically. We only use Grade L, American-made copper pipes. They are, by far, the highest in quality and are manufactured to a precise, uniform standard. We are able to offer a lifetime guarantee because we use materials that are built to last.
