The Risks of Overlooking Gas Pipe Sealing

When there’s no sealing around the gas pipe, it poses a potential hazard. If gas were to leak, it could fill the cavity between the brickwork and the internal blockwork. Worse still, it could seep into the house itself. Such a scenario is not just dangerous; it’s potentially lethal.
