Broken Pipes From Freezing
Broken pipes from freezing are found to be more common in our service areas during the coldest winter months. However, southern states do suffer from burst pipes as well as in the northern states. Pipe failure can occur for various reasons, such as aging material and weaknesses due to flaws in the plumbing system.
Unlike burst pipes that are caused simply due to material failures of the pipe itself, a frozen pipe is caused by the freezing of water in an adjacent section of the plumbing system. The frozen water or ice within the pipe then expands and causes the plumbing to burst. A frozen pipe can occur anywhere in a home where there are pressurized plumbing lines. Specifically, areas such as exterior walls where hose bibs are located, attics, basements and other areas exposed to the exterior climate temperatures.
Damage From Broken Pipes
The aftermath of a burst pipe can leave you with the burden of extremely difficult and complex decisions surrounding repairs and replacements. Issues related to property damage of items such as flooring, insulation, cabinets, and other interior finishes are just some of the many concerns one has when dealing with broken pipe claims. You may also be faced with the emotional toll that damage to personal property causes, such as clothes, furniture, electronics, and other items of value.
