What Happens When Pipes Burst?

Winters in many states in the United Sates can get very harsh. Freezing weather can sometimes cause much damage to plumbing, pipes and other systems in your home. No one is expecting it when it happens, but there it is, busted pipes. When pipes burst, there can be devastating results to the home, and panic for the residents.

Can My Pipes Burst During Cold Weather?

When one or more pipes burst because of cold weather, the first thing that happens is flooding underneath the house, and in the yard. The water gushes at a rate that causes the water pressure inside the house to lower. This means that necessary water usage is not available. Depending on where the busted pipe is located, there could be some water damage inside the house as well.
