Friend or neighbor reference. If you're in an area with a bunch of older home, it's likely your neighbors have one on a short list.

So cuts my cost in about half, helps a friend out, and I actually might learn something. Win, win, win.
Smart move.

Waiting for the windows to arrive, so next project is winterizing my pipes. Anyone have any experience with this? I live in Minnesota, so it's necessary to avoid freezing and/or cracking pipes.

If so, did you hire someone? What did you do? How did you identify exactly what pipes need to be addressed? Is it just the open-sight pipes, or do you go behind the walls somehow?

Do you have a basement?
Do your pipes run thru the exterior walls?

For all external spigots you should have a shutoff inside the house. Shut that off and then open the spigot as if you were turning it on. It's simple and should prevent any freezing.

Yes I have a basement. IDK how to explain it, it's like a college party basement, although marginally nicer. Not finished and we have laundry down there. It has a crawl space which I'm not excited to go into, but I will.

I do not know if my pipes run through my exterior walls. To be frank, IDK shit about plumbing and will have to have someone come out for any issues I have, but if I can somehow figure out what and how to wrap the pipes, I'd do this job myself.

You can literally buy pipe insulation for really cheap at any big box hardware store. You just need to know if it's 3/4 or 1/2. It's helpful to wrap at least your hot water pipes in an open basement just to keep them from losing all the heat when the water isn't flowing. I have a basement, painted walls and floor, with laundry, and 1 finished room. In a similar climate we don't need to winterize anything outside of the spigots as all the plumbing coming up from the basement to the main level does so directly thru the floor in to whatever cabinet is holding the sink. Since none run on outside walls, and the basement never gets colder than 60, there is no risk to freeze. Any home I've ever lived in, or owned, in this colder climate are has never been at risk for freezing pipes as they've all had basements and none had pipes in the walls.
