Have to replace the main sewer line running from house to street as
it's full of tree roots (from neighbor's tree and was just snaked
three months ago and now backed up again).
It's a 25' stretch with no obstructions, through a standard lawn. We
do have a sidewalk (don't know if they tear that up or not).
Was quoted $2500 to replace the main line. Sound about right?? Should
I ask anything special about what kind of pipe they'll install?
Thanks for any help.
In some parts of the country that might be high; in others about right.
All depends on labor costs and depth, etc.
Call City Hall and ask if a permit is needed for the work (usually)
and whether this contractor is on their approved list.
Insist that any contractor pull the permit himself and that he
carries liability insurance.
Get a couple more quotes.
After a few years of roto calls twice per yer we started using Root
Kill twice per year. No roto calls for several years.
