The cost of a sewer line replacement can vary widely based on several factors, including the length of the sewer line, the depth and accessibility of the line, the location of the property, the type of soil and terrain, the extent of the damage or deterioration, and regional labor and material costs. Given the range of variables involved, it’s challenging to provide an exact cost without specific details. However, to give you a general idea, a sewer line replacement can typically range anywhere from $3,000 to $25,000 or more.
Traditional excavation methods for sewer line replacement tend to be more costly due to the extensive labor, equipment, and restoration involved. On average, you might expect costs in the range of $50 to $250 per linear foot, depending on the factors mentioned above.
Alternatively, trenchless methods, such as pipe bursting or pipe relining, can offer cost savings compared to traditional excavation. These methods typically range in cost from $80 to $250 per linear foot, depending on the specific technique and other considerations.
