Old home plumbing repairs and improvements often present challenges not found in newer houses. Sometimes problems arise with outdated plumbing materials such as galvanized steel water supplies, cast-iron drain pipes, clay sewer lines and insidious tree roots.
F.J. Bero & Company has been working on historic homes in Elgin and the surrounding Chicago suburbs since we started in 1920. We have found wooden water main sections, cast iron pipes with trees growing through them and more “home owner special” type plumbing repairs than we can even count.
We also know what is involved in historic designation homes, how to hold the integrity of the house and what is involved in following Historical Society guidelines.
