Colder temperatures cause water to expand. Pipes that freeze during the winter months may obstruct water flow, and develop holes or cracks that could eventually cause the pipes to burst. A burst pipe can weaken structural elements and harm your furniture while also causing structural harm to your home.

In Montreal, frozen pipes can be very dangerous. It is expensive to fix and has the potential to rupture, causing significant damage. Our main priority is making sure your family is protected. We provide homeowners and business owners with several tips on how to avoid frozen or burst pipes, including:
Keep your heat on when it becomes chilly outside because pipes can freeze and explode. The pipe can easily burst once the water inside it melts. Even if you are away for the holidays, make sure the heat is on during below-freezing weather to avoid pipes bursting.
Let the water flow through pipes: To prevent pipes from freezing, turn on the faucet and let water flow through the pipe.
Leave cabinet doors open in the kitchen and bathroom when the heat is on to allow warm air to flow and prevent pipes from freezing.
Insulate Your Pipes Insulating your pipes offers additional security and can help keep them from freezing. It is possible to use additional insulation, such as fiberglass or foam rubber sleeves.
It can be difficult to tell if a pipe is adequately insulated because it runs through a wall, floor, or ceiling. The best approach is to hire an insulation company to use an infrared camera to inspect the walls and ceilings to determine whether there is adequate insulation. To retain as much warm air inside the building as possible, the insulation company can also inspect your attic space to make sure that it is well insulated.
Any water sources that aren’t in use should be turned off (ie. Unoccupied spaces, garages, exterior plumbing lines). Turn off the water tap after draining the water from the pipes. Turn off the water if you want to go on vacation; otherwise, hire someone to check the property regularly to make sure there are no problems. If no one is watching over your house while you’re away, insurance won’t cover your damages.
Examine any leaks that are currently in your property. If you are aware of any leaks, make sure to have them rectified. A burst pipe is more likely to occur when your pipe is weak.
Check your external pipes and make sure they are buried sufficiently deep. You need to make sure they are deep enough to prevent freezing since the ground freezes from the top down.
