Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team responds to storm damage emergencies every winter. According to the Institute of Business and Home Safety, frozen pipes are a leading source of property damage during severe winter weather. Here are their recommendations for reducing your risk of storm damage to your home or business:

  • Seal openings and penetrations:Seal all windows, doors, and other openings on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating wall cavities
  • Seal cracks and penetrationsSeal all wall cracks and penetrations, including domestic and fire protection lines, electrical conduit, and other utility service lines
  • Insulate and seal attic penetrations:Insulate and seal attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases
  • Run faucets:Let all faucets drip during extremely cold weather to prevent freezing of the water inside the pipe, and if freezing does occur, to relieve pressure buildup in the pipes between the ice blockage and the faucet
  • Insulate pipes
  • Insulate recessed light fixtures
  • Have an automatic excess flow switch installed if you have natural gas
  • Monitor sprinkler systems
