If it's the INSIDE of Your Home or Vacation House:

How to know if you suffer from frozen water pipes in Pittsburgh:
One of the biggest problems of concern for Pittsburgh residents during the cold months is the uncertain havoc that can take place when water pipes freeze due to the lack of hiring our exceptional winterization service.
If you are a residents in Pittsburgh PA, there is no doubt that you have seen the news every winter when there is a water main break that needs repaired due to icy cold and freezing temperatures.
The first steps in preventing this type of horrific event is preventing froze pipes in the first place.
Prevention is key. If you find a frozen pipe in your home, it may be too late. Frozen pipes cause destruction and financial burdens to home and business owners alike.
Pipes freezing in homes or offices can occur anytime a water pipe is exposed to temperatures that reach below 33ºF. Water expands as it freezes and if there is no place for the water to go, or it is trapped in the pipes within your home or office, the pressure will cause extensive damage to your property.
When a frozen pipe gives way, tons of water can then be let loose to cause havoc in the home or business property. This can happen any time of day or night. Imagine not being present when a pipe bursts due to freezing temperatures and your entire investment property, home or business is destroyed....not to mention the cost of all that wasted water.
Pipes that need winterization in your home or building are generally found in garages, crawl spaces, attics and other unheated rooms of the property. Pipes that run on the exterior walls of the buildings are also suceptible to freezing when the weather plummets to subzero temperatures.
Winterization Plumbing allows you to have peace of mind knowing that the pipes that are exposed are either emptied prior to the freezing season OR they have the proper installation intact to prevent such disasters.
If you know that you will be away from your vacation home, residential home or office spaces, you need to make sure that our Pittsburgh Winterization team steps in and helps you take the proper precautions to protect your home and to avoid expensive frozen pipe repair.
