Freezing Pipes are No Fun
The temperatures are starting to fall and it looks that the first freeze of the year is quickly headed our way. During this time of year, the chance for freezing and bursting pipes skyrockets. Burst pipes are one of the most common causes for property damage during the winter season. These types of damages can easily cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home and belongings. The pipes that are at the highest risk of freezing and bursting are those in unheated interior spaces like basements, attics, and garages.
