Statistics show that approximately 250,000 families have their homes damaged and their lives disrupted each winter. This is all because of water damage which stems from frozen pipes. Recovering from the damages is not as simple as calling a plumber. Damages can occur rapidly as a small crack in a pipe can spew up to 250 gallons of water a day.

Consequently, damages can be found throughout the house and can affect the ceilings, walls, and floors. By taking a few precautions, you can avoid the mess, money and frustration that this process can cause.
