Get ready for winter
We rarely get bitter cold for long, but we do get the occasional power outages and those coupled with cold weather can cause problems. Frozen pipes not only mean plumbing bills to repair pipes and fixtures, but unexpected bills to replace walls, ceilings, and flooring. It’s best to be prepared.
Water expands when it freezes. This can cause serious problems for even the toughest commercial plumbing system. If your pipes are not properly covered and insulated and covered, the frozen water can create major pressure and ultimately lead to burst, cracks or leaks.
It’s also important for owners of condo/duplex/triplex units to properly winterize and secure their unit to prevent winter damage to it and any neighboring units. We can winterize any property to make sure that it is protected!
During the cold winter months, there is a good chance that unprotected water pipes will freeze. This includes water sprinkler lines, outdoor hoses, plumbing in unheated interiors and outdoor pipes with no insulation. If this happens, you may only have the annoyance of having no water. However, your interrupted water service could turn into a disaster when the pipes thaw. Water pipes may have ruptured, and as the pipes thaw, ice turns back into water and that water can cause property damage and will require plumbing repairs.
If frozen pipes do occur, our plumbers can thaw those pipes. We thaw the pipes safely and repair any pipe damage immediately, which lessens the damage to the walls, ceilings, and floors.
