Understanding the Impact of Freezing Temperatures on Homes

Frozen Pipes in Winter A frozen over pipe in winter.

As winter's icy grip tightens, it brings with it a myriad of challenges for homeowners. Freezing temperatures can take a toll on our residences, causing potential damage that extends beyond the visible frost on windows. The most common concern is frozen pipes, which can burst and lead to costly repairs. Additionally, the contraction and expansion of building materials under extreme cold can result in structural issues and compromised insulation.

To safeguard your home, focus on insulation upgrades, weatherstripping, and regular maintenance of heating systems. Taking preventative measures, such as allowing faucets to drip during frigid nights, can help mitigate the risk of frozen pipes.

In the event that your home experiences a burst pipe or any other interior damage, call your local SERVPRO.
