Water Damage

Frozen and Burst Pipe Restoration in Connecticut

Pipes don’t freeze, but the water inside them may. When temperatures plummet, the water expands as it turns into ice and could exert enough pressure to rupture a pipe wall or break apart a pipe joint. Such leaks, if undetected right away, can cause significant damage to floors, carpeting, drywall, and fiberglass insulation. Burst copper pipes used to supply water to plumbing fixtures or to circulate water to baseboard radiators are common sources of major leaks. Pipes may also burst for reasons other than freezing, such as when a carpenter accidentally drives a nail through one, but freezing is the most common cause of pipe leakage. When leaking or burst pipes strike, ServiceMaster of Greater Bridgeport is the company to call to dry out, clean up, and restore your living space.

Burst Pipe

As water freezes, it expands about 10 percent in volume. That pressure can cause a rupture.

Common Causes of Leaking, Burst, or Frozen Pipes

  • Insufficient insulation
  • Insulation that has been damaged or dislodges
  • A malfunctioning heating system, typically while homeowners are away
  • Corrosion, typically at a soldered joint
  • Damage to a pipe during remodeling activities
