    Home / All About Structural Spot Repairs

    Over decades of use, pipes may develop a corroded, cracked, or otherwise damaged area that needs repair. Instead of relining the whole pipe, you can use structural spot repairs. These repairs are affordable, fast, and easy to do. At Masterliner, we have all of the tools and resin you need to provide this type of service to your clients.

    When to Use a Spot Repair

    When a small area of a pipe has deteriorated, you can use a spot repair. This technique is also good for fixing gaps and cracks caused by tree root intrusion. You remove the roots and place the spot repair liners in the affected area. This restores full flow to the pipe.

    How Spot Repairs Work

    To execute a spot repair with our cured-in-place-pipe lining systems, you begin by cleaning the affected area. This can be done with hydro jetting, an auger, or a puller. The liner is pulled into place through an existing manhole or access point. The resin can be cured with air pressure, steam, or water. In just a few minutes, the resin forms a cross-linkage that bonds with the pipe. The result is an impermeable pipeline.


    After the spot repair system is installed, the pipe will be tightly sealed. That area will never need another repair. It’s useful in residential and commercial applications.


    With a spot repair, there’s no need to dig. We offer user-friendly kits. You can also get bulk material if you do a lot of these repairs. This technique allows you to provide a low-cost and long-term solution to sluggish pipes. The resin is strong and leak-proof. It allows you to create a custom diameter and thickness.

    Our structural repair system transforms problem pipes in mere hours. For more information about Masterliner’s pipe repair lining systems, get in touch with us today.
