Due to the harsh winters experienced in Ireland in 2009 and 2010 there were an extremely high number of these claims. In recent years due to much milder winters and better insulated homes they are a lot less common. However in periods of freezing temperatures there is always the possibility of your pipes freezing. In the majority of cases the actual damage takes place after the frost thaws and the water in your system starts to flow again and makes its way out of the cracks created by the frost. During the winters of 2009 and 2010 we seen that in instances of burst pipes the majority of the house would be affected leading to very disastrous consequences for the homeowners involved.
