Pipe Works Services, Inc. Case Studies: Spray foam for insulating freezing pipes

Saturday, December 31st, 2016 by Kevin Costa

Challenge

Customer had reached out to us about her having an issue with some freezing pipes in their home. She called us initially wanting a plumber to come out and fix the piping . After our plumber came out he realized it was not a plumbing issue but that it would better serve the customer to have the problem area be insulated instead of constantly having to replace pipe. Our comfort advisor Rob came out and went over the entire process and the permanent solution we were going to implement.

Solution

Our Spray foam installers Charlie and Gio came out  to Remove and dispose of Sheetrock on back and side wall of closet in basement where water lines run. Apply approximately 3" closed cell spray foam on the exterior walls and insulate the water line with armaflex pipe insulation. . We also installed new sheetrock and spackle and the customer is now ready for paint. Customer will not experience issue with frozen pipes anymore in this area.
