Re: EXTREME freezing temperatures - What to worry about?

please tell me you are heating the garage? in this weather if you dont heat an attached garage you will get floor heaves, cracks and the like.

How did garages survive being unheated for the last 30-50 years without any of that stuff happening?

up here in quebec attached garages are always heated, but most people turn off the heat. In my moonlight gig i can tell you just pulling up to the house if the garage has had its heat turned off. Until you have been up north you really dont know the disasterous effects of adfreezing

Well I kept the bathroom door opened while I was gone (just came back) and water is running normally.

To the guy who told me to insulate the wall&pipes: Yes I did say several times I'm doing that in the summer

I believe that only applies to garages at the same level as the basement.
My garage's concrete slab is at ground level.
Considering my house is 46 years old and there was no heating in the garage throughout that whole time, I doubt the floor will change.

Anyway when the basement is finished (spring), I will get around to the garage, I want a laundry room in there so I will insulate most of it.
