Pipe renovations by CIPP lining

Cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) lining with the Linercom method is a quicker and more affordable alternative for pipe renovations. The method does not damage structures and it creates less noise and debris, therefore it is also a better option for the environment. The Linercom method is particularly suited for sites, where open excavation is not possible. When no excavations are carried out, the environment of the construction site is safer and the risk of collapse is avoided. 

Whether it is a detached house, a housing cooperative or a large industrial building, the best possible renovation method for the relevant site must be assessed prior to beginning the works. The condition, location, environment and many other factors of the site to be renovated affect whether the renovation can be completed by CIPP lining with the Linercom method, or perhaps by combining it with a more traditional method.

Well-planned is half completed

Linings that are implemented with the Linercom method always progress in the same way: 

  • Before beginning the project, we take care of informing the residents.
  • Once we arrive at the construction site, we protect the site.
  • We handle the cleaning and lining of the pipes. To cure the lining, we always use steam or hot water and a branch saddle is installed at each branch.
  • When the work has been completed, we clean the construction site and provide a handover file.
  • We issue a ten-year No Leaks Guarantee on renovations that have been implemented with the Linercom method.

Our professionals shall find an optimal solution for all sites, as well as plan and implement the renovation from start to finish. Our aim is not just a perfectly successful renovation, but also a satisfied customer.

Pipe renovations from a resident’s perspective

In case of a pipe renovation completed by means of CIPP lining, the resident can live at home for the duration of the renovation. The lining of one apartment takes approx. 2-3 days, so the disruption is minimal compared to traditional pipe renovations. Residents are always informed about work stages in advance, and they are notified when drains can and cannot be used. Prohibitions of use only apply to apartments that are being worked on and apartments that are connected to the same vertical pipeline. The other residents can use the drains as normal. 

Residents are only asked to empty the under-sink cupboards and other areas in front of drainage sites, as well as to comply with prohibitions of use. No other procedures are required from the residents.
