Damage from Broken Pipes in Coon Rapids

Water Damage Damage from Broken Pipes in Coon Rapids This broken pipe caused over $20,000 in damage to a Coon Rapids based business

Frozen pipes are one of the most common causes of pipe bursts. Therefore, you need to take some important steps to prevent them from freezing. Here are two tips that we recommend:

  • Insulate the water pipes which are exposed to cold. Most times, these pipes are located in the crawl space, attic or along your exterior wall. Adding an extra layer of insulation will keep your pipes protected from freezing temperatures. You can even wrap these insulated pipes in heat tape.
  • Seal all the leaks that let the freezing air enter your home, especially if they are near the pipes. Most often this includes spots around cable, telephone or electrical wiring entering the home through exterior walls.
  • If you do have a pipe break in your home or business, turn off the water source as quickly as possible.  This might mean turning off that water main.  This will help limit the damage and the amount of water that comes into the structure.

    No matter how bad the damage is, we are always here to help and since we are locally based whether you live in Coon Rapids, Anoka, or Elk River, we can have one of our certified technicians on site to help typically within an hour or two.
