Greensboro Frozen Water Pipe Repair
While not as cold as many places in the nation, the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina, including Greensboro, Kernersville, Winston-Salem, Oak Ridge, Summerfield, Stokesdale, and High Point, still has a few cold snaps during our winter that can cause water pipes to freeze and rupture. Periods of extreme cold, combined with wind chill, create a substantial risk for frozen or burst pipes. When freezing water turns to ice within the pipe, it expands and can block the water line. No matter if the frozen water pipe is made of plastic, copper or steel, blockage can create excessive pressure throughout the system and cause pipes to rupture or fail. Hundreds of gallons of water can escape in a single day from just one tiny crack in a water pipe. Among the inconvenience that frozen pipes can cause, the results can cause property damage, high repair costs and disruption of business. Master Plumbers of North Carolina has the experience and knowledge to repair frozen water pipes.
