December Project of the Month
Frozen Water Pipes – Lees Summit MO – Under $500
December’s cold brought us some new emergencies for our clients. With the dreadfully low temperatures and then the thaw came leaving us with several jobs requiring pipe repair and replacement.
This project in Lees Summit, MO. Had piping that was no protected from the cold and inevitably the pipe burst. We had to repair the pipe and the water damage created by the problem. Thankfully the customer was informed enough to understand that an immediate freeze at temperatures like those on December 18th can break a pipe when the temperatures rise. They were checking pipes, watching water pressure and expecting the un expected.
When started the project we not only bid the repairs but made suggestions that included insulating the pipes to remove the chance of future problems.
Remember prolonged stretches of extremely cold temperatures can result in some Kansas City metro-area homeowners dealing with this type of problem. No one wants frozen water service pipes in their homes – you can follow these tips to help.
- Insulate pipes that are on outside walls
