i recently bought a house that had what i thought was a nicely reno'd updstairs bath.
today the temperature dipped to -13C and the water stopped running out of my sink.
i had felt coldness around the floor AND on the ceiling below around the patio door below so i went outside and removed some of the fascia and soffit to see what i could see.
here is what i found - the insulation is a joke. the patio door was never really insulated, and the pipes can easily be seen from the outside (*once i removed some wood and insulation)
this is the view from the back, the bathroom is the dormer above
the view gets closer and closer
HELP!!! i don't know what to do. I used a heater and got the water flowing again to the sink -- how do i prevent it from freezing again?
if i spray foam the pipes will this stop the freezing?
