Here in Minneapolis freezing temperatures can cause a lot of damage when pipes in homes and businesses freeze and burst. Once the pipes have burst they must be replaced and sometimes this involves cutting into the walls of your home or business. Not only is this repair costly, it is a serious inconvenience for anyone that has to go through it.
A Quick Diagnosis
You may think your entire household piping system is in perfect working order and there is little or no chance of a pipe bursting and flooding your house. That is, until you wake up one frigid morning to find that no water comes out when you turn on the sink, your pipes are frozen solid. Water that freezes during the winter in an unprotected pipe expands, and that expansion can rupture a pipe in perfect condition. A frozen pipe is always an inconvenience, but it can actually result in a much more serious situation than just a temporary loss of water. By calling in an expert when your pipes freeze, you may not face costly repairs from a pipe that bursts when the water in it freezes solid.
