Trying to decide whether to replace a sewer pipe or to just have it repaired? Minneapolis sewer repairs have many advantages, as noted in one recent article:

Not only can you avoid the heavy digging that would have to occur in order to completely remove and replace your old sewer line, you’ll also save money by not having to replace concrete walks and driveways, and you lessen the risk of running into existing water or gas lines.

No-dig (trenchless) sewer repairs are done underground, and the only digging done is two small holes. So, you’ll be able to keep your landscaping, driveway(s) and sidewalk(s) intact and not have to dig them up in order to repair your sewer pipe.
