Replacing Sewage Lines


I need some advice for a job I won't be doing myself. I recently had my building repiped and was told that I needed the horizontal sewage line under my building replaced and a trenchline sewage line installed to the street. I can see the leakage under my building at the joints were the horizontal and vertical lines meet. One company told me that I didn't need to have my vertical plumbing stacks replaced as they rarely have problems, while another company told me that I should have the vertical stacks replaced as well.

I'm flying blind here and need some advice about what to look for and what questions to ask in making this decision. Thanks

Vertical stacks can deteriorate just as much as the horizontal ones.

Plumbing has a simple phrase, "Pay me now or Pay me later." Either way, you are going to pay when it needs replacing. I would replace the piping now and never have to worry about it again.
