Frozen Pipe Repair

The extreme cold combined with wind chill creates a substantial risk for frozen pipes or water lines in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Waterloo, and Dubuque areas. Freezing water turns to ice within the pipe, which in turn can expand and block the line. This blockage can create excessive pressure throughout the system and cause pipe failure in vulnerable places. Even a tiny crack can unleash more than 250 gallons of water in a single day. 

The results of frozen pipes and water lines can cause property damage and high repair costs.

It’s important to call on a professional like Brecke to handle any frozen water line problems. Pipes are often located in your basements, crawl spaces, and underground, making them inaccessible to the untrained individual. Frozen pipes and water lines often happen in tricky areas, such as deeply buried main lines and within the walls.

There are many factors that can lead to your pipes freezing, including inadequate insulation, older copper pipes, and extreme cold weather for an extended period of time. Older homes in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Waterloo, and Dubuque Iowa surrounding areas may experience multiple piping issues. If your home or building was built over fifty years ago, it may be necessary to replace your older metal pipes with PVC pipes to reduce the risk of corrosion and water damage later on.

Our team of experienced technicians will help you with frozen pipe repair and frozen pipe replacement. From locating the source of the leak, to accessing the pipes, to handling the cut-off valves, to insulation, we have the tools to solve your problem.
