November 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Each year during the winter months many people suffer the unfortunate event of a burst pipe. This is generally attributed to poor or no pipe insulation being fitted. Once a pipe bursts you could be sitting happily watching the tv for sometime before you notice that anything is wrong. By this time the water has made it’s way from the attic, through the joists, through the ceilings and down the wall. The result… weeks of misery while you clean it up, dry out the house and then start the task of decorating all over again.
The truth is, a burst pipe can do untold damage and end up costing you thousands in repair bills and redecorating.
