Frozen pipes can lead to costly damage if they're not fixed quickly and properly.
Plumbing that is not to code can delay work, or lead to costly plumbing problems in the future. Hire a licensed plumber with experience.
Poor workmanship can lead to subpar results, and repairs sooner than necessary. Hire a plumber with an established reputation.
Professional plumbing companies offer a guarantee/warranty. Ensure you hire a plumber that is willing to stand behind their work.
I needed a water line replacement and called several plumbers. All were very busy due to the weather this spring - including Vaillancourt - but they visited my home the same day I called. Their estimate was competitive and the final bill did not deviate from the estimate. Their workmanship was top-notch but what impressed me most was the constant phone calls to update me as the day for the work drew near. Brian ensured that I was constantly informed of his schedule with regards to my job. Excellent. I highly recommend them!

If you have a frozen water pipe and it hasn’t ruptured yet, you have to act quickly. You can turn on every faucet in your house and if water flows freely from all of them except one, you likely have an isolated problem. If two or more faucets are affected, the problem is more widespread. If you attempt to thaw a frozen pipe yourself, never use a blowtorch or open flame which can result in a fire or explosion. If you’re unsure of what to do, always call a professional to resolve the problem quickly and safely- some things aren’t worth risking a DIY repair!
Frozen pipes can be a nightmare! Built up pressure can cause the pipe to burst, resulting in serious damage to your home. The insurance company might deny a claim citing negligence on your part. When you suspect a frozen pipe, it’s best not to take chances. Request a job estatimate from Vaillancourt Plumbing now!
If you have water pipes that are exposed to temperatures of 20 degrees celsius or less, such as exterior hose bibs in the winter, you should turn the water off to those faucets and then open the faucets to drain any water.
To help prevent pipes from freezing you can wrap them in insulation. There are numerous pipe insulation products available. Visit your your local hardware store to learn more.
Frozen pipes will start to thaw at 20 degrees celsius.
Thawing a frozen water pipe can take 30 to 45 minutes. If you have a frozen pipe, contact a local plumber immediately. When water turns into ice it expands which can cause pipes to crack and burst which will lead to water damage if not addressed in a timely manner.
Assuming a temperature of 20 degrees celsius or less, and the water pipe is not in use, it will take approximately 4 to 5 hours for a water pipe to freeze and burst.
