Water damage can be a downright pain at times. During the winter, low temperatures mean your plumbing system may run the risk of freezing. If a pipe freezes, the water inside has a chance of freezing, too. This cold water will expand quickly as it freezes. The rapid expansion puts an enormous amount of pressure on the pipes.
In time, the pipe – metal or plastic – will burst. Then, you may have hundreds of gallons of water flooding your home. The resulting water damage can be catastrophic.
