Why Do Pipes Need Repairs?
Like all things, even the various materials that pipes are made from can begin to break down over time with constant use. Think about how often your pipes have to work throughout the day, every day, every year, and more. The constant pressure of flowing water, outside elements such as drastic temperature changes, or reactive materials found in soil, concrete, etc. can all wear away at the integrity of a pipe causing the need for replacement or repair.
Massachusetts Frozen Pipe Repair
Any home built where cold, wintery weather settles in during the year has the possibility to experience frozen pipes. Especially if your heat unexpectedly goes out, this can cause your pipes to freeze if the temperatures drop below freezing.
Luckily, there are a few things you can do to avoid frozen pipes, such as making sure your home is well insulated, especially where pipes run along outside walls, keeping your heating system in working order and on, even when you’re away, and keeping the water running if you do find yourself in a no heat situation. It’s important to make sure that if something looks or sounds wrong during winter, you get it checked out by Heritage sooner than later to avoid costly repairs
Frozen pipes can cause damage to every area of your home, including its walls, floors, and more. Avoiding them at all costs is worth it. Listen to your pipes during extremely cold weather. Pay attention to low flow from faucets – this can be a key sign your pipes aren’t warm enough to survive the chill.
