Home Wire and Water Pipe Laid on The Roof or Underground?

Wire is an important part of the house decoration. Many people are curious: should home wire and pipe be installed on the roof or underground in water and electricity transformation?



The principle is installed them on the roof instead of under the ground. Of course roof refers to suspended ceiling. It doesn’t not recommand to lay out lines and pipes into walls or underground. This is related to the maintenance cost in the later stage. It is more convenient to check the ceiling. The floor and wall are different. It is laborious and difficult to find problems.


Laying on the roof doesn’t mean that the roof need to be slotted. Wires and pipes will go along with the corner of wall and roof. The advantage is that it is convenient for later maintenance and replacement, and water won’t penetrate into downstairs when repairing. The disadvantage is wasting water pipe. Generally it needs to do suspended ceiling to hide the water pipe to ensure its beauty. This will increase the cost.





The traditional wiring needs to be slotted on the ground, and most owners require wires to be horizontal and vertical. In fact, this is not correct.


Wiring on the roof can avoid the water pipe and plumbing supplies under the ground. If the water pipe leakage, it is very likely to affect the wire. When home catches fire, it will seriously threaten the family safety.


The longer you live, the more trouble you will have if you need to test or repair the circuit under the ground. You have to pry off the tiles or planks on the ground to repair it. Moreover, if the horizontal and vertical methods are adopted, it is very likely that the wires can not be pulled. If the waterproof layer is accidentally damaged when prying off the ground, you will not only pay the cost of wire maintenance, but also redone the waterproof layer. If it is laying on the ceiling, it will be more convenient, and has no these problems.





Laying into the wall.


  1. After the pipeline is laid, it is not easy to be damaged in the later construction and easy to be protected.
  2. When the line has problems and needs to be repaired, the damaged wall surface is easier to repair than the ground.
  3. Don’t need large of suspended ceiling. Save height space and decoration expenses.


  1. It will cause a large area of damage to the wall and increase the possibility of cracking the paint wall in future.
  2. The wall wiring must be laid horizontal and vertical, resulting in a large number of turning, which greatly reduces the possibility of realizing tube threading.
  3. There are too many pipelines on the wall, which greatly affects the installation of decorations on the wall in future.
  4. Too many turns will increase the circuit length. In the long run, it will increase energy consumption.


Laying on the ceiling


  1. After the circuit is laid, it is not easy to be damaged in the later construction, and is easy to be protected.
  2. It will not damage the wall too much and reduce the possibility of wall paint cracking.
  3. If it is not pipe line, the top and wall surface are relatively easy to repair than the ground when the line has problems and needs to be repaired, .
  4. The flexible line can be realized so that the decorative surface will not be damaged during maintenance.


  1. Most buildings is basically frame structure now. there are many beams on the top surface. When the circuit passes through, it will cause more or less damage to the beam structure. If lines don’t go through beam, we have to suspend, which will inevitably lower height from ceiling to floor and suppress the space.
  2. Most of the switches and sockets are below 1.3 meters, so the circuit from top to low may affect the installation of decorations on the wall above 1.3 meters height.
  3. In order to hide the pipeline, it is necessary to increase a large number of suspended ceiling. Reduce space height and increase decoration expenses.


Laying under the ground


  1. Convenient and easy to realize pipe line wiring.
  2. It will not damage the wall too much and reduce the possibility of wall paint cracking.
  3. It will not affect the installation of other devices on the wall in future.


  1. After the wiring is completed, protect pipelines carefully during the later construction to avoid damage.
  2. Increase the thickness of ground when pipeline crossing.
  3. If maintenance is needed, it may cause damage to the ground and relatively troublesome to get back to normal when there is a problem in the circuit.
