During cold winters with freezing temperatures, frozen water pipes or frozen drain pipes are always a risk. In this Plumbing How To we will show you that when the water inside your plumbing pipes freezes, the ice inside will start to expand and block the flow of water through the frozen pipes and it might even burst pipes.
When pipes inside your walls, in the attic, the basement or underneath your floors freeze, the ice inside will start to expand, if the ice expands enough it will cause the frozen pipes to burst and they will start to spill gallons of water. The leaking water in turn can cause up to thousands of dollars of damage to your home. The winter months can be detrimental to more than just your pipes, if you need the exterior of your home looked at contact Cincinnati roofing.
