Portland Pipe Lining Company Stops Backups From Roots, Pipe Breaks Permanently Using Trenchless CIPP Pipelining and Experienced Pipe Re-Liners
Are your sewer pipes backing up from root infestation, or from missing pipe floors or broken sewer pipes? Are your apartment roof rain leader drains leaking into walls of condominiums? Modern structural pipe replacement installs a new pipe inside of the old pipe. It only takes 3 hours, has a 50 year warranty and is as strong as repiping with new pipe. The internal diameter is only reduced by 5%. We only need one entry point to install the new pipe liner, usually from a rooftop or a small access hole dug outside the building. Compared to old-fashioned excavation, this new inner pipe is cheaper, faster and cleaner.¬†Click¬†Pipe Lining to learn more.
Portland, due to it‚Äôs thousands of miles of deteriorating water pipe infrastructure, is especially prone to pinhole leaks in corroded or damaged pipes creating slab leaks and it‚Äôs leaking galvanized pipes cause water damage and lead leaching into drinking water. Large and small diameter epoxy pipe rehabilitation coats the inside of any pipes with EPA approved food-grade epoxy which permanently seals all leaks. The epoxy coating is applied in varying thicknesses, depending on if it is used in oil refineries, hospitals, hotels, home, factories, aircraft carriers, water pipelines and apartment high-rises.¬†Click¬†Epoxy Pipe Lining to learn more.
In some circumstances, pipes cannot be lined so ‚Äúpipe bursting‚ÄĚ is used, which involves the physical destruction and outward displacement of the old pipe followed simultaneously by the installation of a new pipe with the same or wider diameter inside the newly created void. In other cases, a new pipe can simply be pulled into the old pipe (‚Äúslip lining‚ÄĚ), thereby reducing the internal diameter somewhat.¬†Click¬†Pipe Bursting / Slip Lining to learn more.

Our¬†Portland¬†OR¬†trenchless pipe lining company is the only pipe replacement contractor in¬†Oregon¬†that offers a complete array of pipe rehabilitation techniques for residential, commercial, city and industrial applications. Hospitals for example will use Cured-In-Place pipe (CIPP) to rehabilitate their vertical leaking rain drain stacks and leaking sewage pipes, and high-rise apartments would use our epoxy pipe lining process to stop pinhole leaks and slab leaks in their copper water pipes. Cities use our¬†sectional repairs to stop root infiltration at separated clay pipe joints and they use our¬†manhole rehabilitation techniques to stop water infiltration and water exfiltration.
Our modern pipe lining techniques allow the trenchless pipe restoration of broken pipes or cracked sewer pipes without excavating floors, walls, driveways, foundations, basements and concrete slabs. This no-dig method of pipe repair is cleaner, cheaper and faster than excavation and repiping of damaged plumbing in¬†Portland.
Our Permaliner brand pipe liners have a 100-year life expectancy and come with a 50-year warranty. The pipe liners are installed from one access point, like a rooftop or from an outside cleanout so that there is no invasion of living space or workspace. Although underground pipe lining has been around for over 35 years, small diameter CIPP pipe lining was pioneered by Perma-Liner manufacturing. We are an experienced certified Portland Perma-Liner installer and contractor with extensive experience in high-rise apartment CIPP trenchless pipe replacement, sewer main line lining, industrial pipelining, manhole liners and manhole epoxy lining and residential sewer lateral lining in Portland OR.
The Pipe Lining Installation Process
- The pipe lining contractor uses a water jetter or mechanical pipe cleaning brushes to remove all scale and corrosion deposits causing drain pipe backups in your broken vertical or underground sewer pipes
- Then the pipe lining company uses a video camera to inspect the sewer plumbing pipes and gets a distance measurement for the trenchless pipelining
- The pipe liner is cut to length and 100% epoxy resin is mixed and used to saturate the pipe sleeve thoroughly
- The new liner is installed and the epoxy resin saturated pipe liner is allowed to harden under air pressure against the walls of the broken leaking pipe that needs replacement
- After 3 hours the new pipe liner has formed a new inner pipe inside the old pipe and the trenchless pipelining process is complete
Luxury Apartment Complex
Type: 4‚ÄĚ and 6‚ÄĚ sewer trunk lines and laterals
Problem: missing cast iron pipe floor causing backups under the floor and root intrusion in laterals
Location: 56 SW Clay St., Portland OR
At the luxury Woodhaven condominium complex in Portland residents were experiencing regular backups and sewage problems. Video inspection showed that the 40-year old cast iron pipe had rusted to such an extent that the pipe floor was missing and open cracks were letting roots and soil block flow in the pipes.
Plumbers were suggesting excavating all the concrete floors and walls in 10 buildings in order to replace the plumbing, meaning the residents would have to vacate their premises for at least 3 weeks and the project would take around 5 months to complete at a cost of around $210,000.
By using the Perma-Liner air inversion cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation, we installed new pipes within the old pipes at a rate of 1 building per day. The total project lasted 2 weeks and was completed under budget at a cost of $95,000 to the association.
Advantages of Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation
- Speed: cured in place pipe lining takes hours not weeks
- Cost: since no walls, basements, floors, driveways and landscaping is destroyed, trenchless pipe repair is cheaper than digging and replacing pipe
- Cleanliness: No pipe repair excavation mess inside apartments, factories, hospitals and commercial buildings
- No downtime costs: restaurant pipe rehab and CIPP in other commercial facilities allows the continued operation and no economic loss
