As the temperature drops, pipes exposed to the cold are prone to freeze. This is especially true for pipes located in unheated areas like basements, crawl spaces, attics, and garages. Pipes that run along poorly insulated exterior walls can also be affected by the extremes in temperature.
The continued freezing and thawing of these pipes can cause the material to become weak and break. When this happens, water fills the room, causing significant damage. A crack measuring as little as three millimeters can send as much as 250 gallons of water a day into the house or building.
Because your home or building is a valuable asset, it’s critical to take preventive steps to avoid major inconveniences, high repair costs, and higher insurance costs.
