Plumbing emergencies should be handled immediately! Even the smallest leak can result in long-term water damage that will affect your floors, walls, ceilings, and furnishings. Bursting pipes and overflowing plumbing fixtures don’t always occur at the most convenient times. In fact they often occur when least expected, sending homeowners into a panic. Many homeowners face plumbing emergencies outside of normal business hours and need to call a plumber.
One of the most common plumbing emergencies is broken waterlines and piping, which weaken over time. Cold weather can cause the water and waterlines to freeze and expand leading to a ruptured pipe. Cold weather can also have the same affect on exterior pipes with no insulation or exposed interior pipes in ceilings and crawlspaces.
