According to the Insurance Information Institute, freezing weather and winter storms are the third-largest cause for catastrophic losses.  Frozen pipes and pipe bursts can cause significant water damage.  The weight of ice and excessive rain on the roof can compromise the integrity of the roof, which leads to water damage and structural damage.  Ice can back up the sewer system which can cause bacteria filled floodwaters to enter the home or office. Here in Southern California we do not have to worry so much about ice, but if you have noticed temperatures at night have been dropping significantly and can take a toll on plumbing supply pipes. Do you know what to do in these situations?
