We are planning to replace an outdoor faucet. The current one has leaked from the handle for years while the water was running and was too rusted to try to replace the washer. Now it drips slowly even when the faucet is turned off. After years of dripping it has caused some siding damage which we plan to repair when we fix the faucet. My husband does have some minor plumbing experience with soldering, etc. The problem is the crawlspace in this area is inaccessible for him to work on from under the house. Is it reasonable that when we remove the siding to cut the pipe and repair it that way and then replace the plywood and siding afterward? Thanks!
