Just Say "No" To Burst Pipes

Whether you’re on a first name basis or not, Jack Frost will probably be knocking on your front door pretty soon. Don’t let his arrival cost you hundreds of dollars in home repairs! Here are three critical things you need to do before the first hard freeze of the season.

Turn off your hose bibb. Remember, when water freezes, it expands. If your hose bibb isn’t frost-proof, your system is vulnerable to damage caused by water freezing in the pipes. Shut off your outside spigot before the first freeze to prevent leaks and a repair that can cost $100 or more.

Shut down your sprinkler system. Just like your outdoor spigot, sprinkler pipes can burst if they’re filled with frozen water. Avoid damage by draining your sprinkler lines and closing down your sprinkler system.

Clear your gutters. If you don’t remove the leaves and debris from your gutters now, they’ll become clogged with massive chunks of frozen muck, which isn’t good. Clogged gutters can create ice dams, an overflow of ice that forms along the ridges of your roof and can cause warping, roof damage and mold growth.
