Pipe Repair & Repiping
Steve's Five Star Service is proud to be the leading pipe replacement expert in the Inland Empire. We offer a full range of repiping services, from partial to whole-house pipe replacement, and we can handle the entire project from start to finish, including drywall repair. Whether you have a localized issue that requires only partial repiping, such as a hot water problem or leaky pipe, or you need to completely replace the pipes in your home or business, Steve’s Five Star Service has the expertise necessary to do the job right the first time.
Repiping your home may be the best solution if any of the following are true:
- Your home was built before the year 1970.
- Your home has galvanized pipes, which are steel pipes that have been coated with zinc. These often contain lead and other impurities that could harm you and other inhabitants of your home.
- Your home has old pipes that are constantly leaking, coming apart, or showing signs of corrosion.
- Your home has low water pressure, which could be a sign that pipe corrosion is blocking the flow of water throughout your home.
Whether you need whole-home repiping or just a few pipes here and there, don’t sweat it. Our team here at Steve’s Five Star Service can help you get the new and improved pipes you need at a great price.
We currently use cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes, which are made of a durable plastic designed to reduce the time and expense involved in repiping your home and prevent corrosion in the future. PEX pipes function well in most environments, are more flexible than other types of piping, and may be a great long-term solution to your home’s drips, leaks, and low water pressure.
How to Avoid Repiping
Regular maintenance is absolutely critical when it comes to saving money and keeping your home’s pipes in tip-top shape. Without routine check-ups, you’re likely to miss early signs of pipe damage, which tend to become much larger, more expensive problems if not dealt with quickly. Having a regular chat with your friendly neighborhood plumber at Steve’s can even prolong the life of your pipes by helping you learn how to avoid clogging, blockage, and other avoidable damage.

Repiping Services FAQ
Do you offer free estimates in person? Yes and yes! We believe in our pricing so much that our repiping experts will always be happy to walk you through the full cost of the operation regardless of if it’s a partial repipe or a whole-house repiping service.
What type of pipe do you prefer to install for customers copper or PEX? We offer both PEX piping and copper pipping. But in general we recommend PEX because it is much less invasive than copper piping.
What types of pipe do you typically replace in Southern California homes? We often find that during the 1960s homes in Southern California turned to use galvanized steal as opposed to lead pipes which at the time was a sound innovation. However, after seeing how the zinc coating of galvanized pipes reacts to the minerals in tap water and creates scale build-up and low water pressure they’re now considered obsolete.
How long does a typical whole-house repiping job take? It depends on the size of the house and if any fixtures will need to be replaced as well but on average it takes 1-2 days.
Do you handle any restorative work after the project like patching drywall or painting? Yes, we do offer it as an option for a partner that can handle it after we’re finished with the repipe.
