Thankfully, frozen pipes are only a seasonal issue. However, here in Montreal, Laval or the South Shore, that season can last longer than most. Pipes in someone's home can freeze if they are not properly insulated and when temperatures are maintained sub-zero for a few days or more in a row.
If you suspect that your water line is frozen, it is best to take care of the problem as soon as possible. You should cut off the main water supply going to the pipe if you are able to wait until the professional plumber can arrive and begin the thawing process on the frozen pipes. A frozen pipe should be thawed as soon as possible, and under controlled conditions to prevent leaking and damage to your home. A pipe can burst when frozen, but the leak generally occurs when the pipe thaws. A frozen pipe does not have to end in having to repair or replace the frozen pipes. You can gently unthaw them with gradual heat rises and patience.
If a frozen pipe in an inaccessible spot busts, serious property damage can be caused in a very short time. This is why it is safer that the pipe be defrosted under controlled conditions. Our plumbers are equipped in order to unfreeze all of your pipes in a short period of time and have your water able to run again. In some cases of frozen pipes, the pipes are not only frozen but they are also cracked in a certain spot which later on will cause leaks if the crack in the pipe is not repaired.
