Advantages of Underground Utilities

Home / Advantages of Underground Utilities

When installing utilities, homeowners and business owners will inevitably have to make a choice: should they go with above-ground utilities, or should they opt for underground utility construction? There are pros and cons to both options, but in general, there are still some apprehensions on whether underground utility construction is the best option. 

But that’s why experts in pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA like Federal EC are here. Read on as we go over the key advantages of having your utility lines installed underground.

They’re Out of Sight

This is perhaps the most obvious advantage of underground utilities. Above-ground utilities can be such an eyesore. Power lines, telecommunication lines, and the like, in particular, can be an eyesore with all those cables, especially if they’re not installed properly. But with underground utilities, you don’t have to worry about that. They’re hidden from view, which can in turn greatly improve your property’s curb appeal. Should you need repairs, these can be done using CIPP pipe lining methods.

They’re Less Likely to Be Damaged

Another advantage of underground utilities is that it’s less likely to be damaged. This is because it’s not exposed to the elements like above-ground utilities are. It’s therefore not likely to be damaged by extreme weather conditions. Additionally, it’s more secure against vandalism.

They Reduce Risk of Damage to Property

It makes so much more sense to have utility lines such as sewer pipes be installed underground. Doing otherwise exposes your property to the risk of damage from flooding, leaks, and other sewage-related issues. By installing underground utilities, you can minimize this risk, protect your property from potential damage, and avoid spending a lot of time and money on repairs. Moreover, sewer pipes can be installed via trenchless pipe lining, further reducing the risks of property damage.

They Save On Space

If you have a small property, above-ground utilities can take up valuable space. By installing underground utilities, you can free up space on your property, which can be used for other purposes like outdoor kitchen or a parking space.

They Save Money In the Long Run

While the initial cost of installing underground utilities may be higher than installing above-ground utilities, it’s important to remember that underground utilities will last longer.
