If you live in an area such as Orleans ON, you know we get some extreme temperatures in the winter. With these temperatures all residents run the risk of pipes freezing in their homes. As the water in your pipes freeze, it can expand by up to 10%; this expansion can cause your pipes to split or possibly even burst.
Albeit other areas of Ontario traditionally experience more extreme winter temperatures, it would appear Mother Nature has plans for you as well this year Oakville. We have noted your weather predictions; it states you are in for more snow and cold than normal.
