The City of Geneva recommended Ben Franklin Plumbing of Northern Illinois to a historical home owner there in Geneva, Illinois. There is a picture of the historical home’s front below. The home is called the Chrichton House in Geneva’s Historic District, built in 1893 in the Stick/Queen Anne Style. Details of the home include diagonal wood siding and a sunburst panel, spindle porch posts, a large dormer on the front elevation and an asymmetrical facade.
It was 115′ feet from the house to the street and the pipe that needed fixing was under their brick paver driveway. The homeowner needed the pipe fixed without having to dig up his driveway, especially in the middle of winter. Special care needs to be taken any time a historical home has work done on it and Ben Franklin Plumbing was up for the job.
This was the longest transitional liner Ben Franklin of Northern Illinois has done to date. The pipe transitioned from a 4″ diameter cast iron piping exiting the basement of the house to a 6″ diameter clay tile piping outside, all the way to the city main, located in the middle of the street.
Ben Franklin Plumbing of Northern Illinois and Perma-Liner got the job done correctly, homeowner happy and driveway still in tact.
