A BIG THANKS goes out to Don Mathison who had the confidence in us to tackle a tough pipe freeze problem.
Don is a the real estate professional selling this vacant home. When a home inspector came to do his inspection for a potential buyer, he found that the furnace had gone out and the water pipes had frozen and split.
It was very cold the night before, @ -4 degrees.
The entire water supply system was hard frozen solid, and when the furnace was repaired, leaking in many places behind the walls.
Luckily, the homeowners insurance covered the repair. We re-piped the whole house with new Pex water lines plus a new Bradford White hot water heater.
Remember, if you are going to sell a vacant house over the winter, you must winterize to be sure this kind of damage doesn't happen.
