Those in the pipe repair industry regard trenchless lateral lining as the most affordable and non-invasive way to repair damaged underground pipe lines. During these repairs, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) experts will use epoxy-resin liners to seal over cracks, fissures and broken pipe joints.
This process, which can take as little as 1-2 hours to complete, results in sturdy, single-bodied pipe segments, guaranteed to withstand the elements for decades to come. The most efficient and reliable of these lining solutions are created by Interfit USA, the nationally recognized pros on all matters liquid lining.
At Express Sewer & Drain, we work with Interfit liners every day, in the repair and restoration of severely damaged pipe lines. As these liners cure in-place, within existing pipe walls, there is zero digging necessary to effectively repair pipes. For home and property owners dealing with failing, aged pipe systems, this means fast application and the significant savings that come with it.
How Interfit Liners Repair Pipes in Record Time
Trenchless, liquid-resin liners are applied to damaged pipes internally, typically through existing entry points such as manholes and pipe drains. Once entry points to damaged pipes systems, lines or joints have been established, trenchless repair technicians will coat epoxy-resin liner directly to affected pipe walls, and cure the liner in-place using inflatable air bladders. This pressurization forms a tight, smooth epoxy seal over damaged pipe areas, and results in sturdy replacement pipe sections that are guaranteed to last over 50 years.
The greatest benefit of liquid Interfit liners is their compatibility with a broad variety of pipe types, and ability to renovate virtually any kind of pipe damage. This includes:
- Efficient repairs for clay, iron, cement, copper, PVC, Orangeburg or steel pipes
- Damage caused by faulty installation
- Breakage due to root or animal intrusion
- Corrosion and aging
- Cracking due to environmental changes
In the past, you would have had to manually excavate damaged or deteriorated pipe segments, and physically replace them with expensive new pipe segments. This outdated process took days, if not longer, to complete, and often resulted in compounded landscaping costs.

- Lateral angles anywhere from 1 to 180 degrees

- Lateral insertion lengths of 2”, 12” or 20”
