Frozen Pipes: Prevention, Thawing and What To Do When One Bursts

Frozen pipes can lead to burst pipes. When water freezes, it expands. As it expands it presses on the walls of what is holding it in, in this case a pipe. Pipes that freeze the most are those that are exposed to the extreme cold. These pipes are most commonly along exterior walls, uninsulated pipes, swimming pool supply lines, sprinkler lines, pipes in unheated areas like basements or garages, attics or crawlspaces and even in kitchen cabinets.

Hiring a Plumber

Hiring a qualified, experienced and honest plumber is an important step for a homeowner. It is important to find a plumber that knows what he/she is doing. They are responsible for parts of your house that are crucial to your daily life and if they fail to execute their job correctly it can result in costly repairs later on.
