Your biggest investment & protecting it

Sewer Line Repair in Greater Duluth

Is your home at risk for sewer line damage? Since sewer lines are typically overlooked during home inspections, most property owners just are not aware of the state of their pipes or the extent of damage that can result from sewer line back-ups.

It is important to know this information and your legal recourse, as this damage is generally not covered by a homeowner insurance policy.

Understanding liability & sewer repairs

When considering the sewer pipes connected to your home and the responsibility of repairing them, you need to know the difference between the upper lateral and the lower lateral sewer lines:

  • Upper lateral sewer lines

    Upper lateral lines are a part of the home's sewer line that runs from the structure to the property line, which is commonly the curb or sidewalk. The homeowner is responsible for any and all repairs to the upper lateral.

  • Lower lateral sewer lines

    Lower lateral is the section of the home's sewer line that runs from the property line to the city main sewer line in the street. Minnesota & Wisconsin home buyers and realtors sometimes assume that any problems past the property line will be repaired by the city, but that is not always the case. Deciding on whether the homeowner or the municipality is responsible for lower lateral sewer line repair differs across the country.

    Be sure to check your local municipality to assure who the responsible party is. Townships with older homes are more likely to need repairs, including Summit, Madison, Chatham, and Morristown. It is also common that lines in these areas have some combination of cast iron and clay elements, which are more susceptible to sewer line damage as well.

The risk of sewer line damage

Some homes are more vulnerable than others. If any of these situations sound familiar, then you should contact the professionals at J&RS - we provide low-cost video sewer line inspections!

  • Homes susceptible to sewer line damage
    • Older homes
    • Homes with settlement issues
    • Homes with deep, aggressive tree roots
    • Homes with a prior history of sewer line issues
    • Homes with clay or cast iron sewer lines
    • Homes with trees growing near or over sewer lines
  • Common sewer line issues

    Tree root infiltration: Small sewer line cracks or holes attract tree growth, as they provide a continued source of water and fertilizer. Tree roots may require a picote treatment in order to cut all the debris from the pipe's interior.

    Increased family size: Once a large family moves into an older home previously inhabited by a single resident, existing lines can become over-burdened by the drastic increase in usage.
