Pipe Burst and Water Damage – FEBRUARY 2021 TEXAS WINTER WEATHER
The extreme winter weather in Texas prompted a flood of claims for frozen pipes and water damage. What causes your pipes to burst during cold weather? When the weather is at or below freezing, the water coming into your house is much colder than it is during the summer. The cold water causes your pipes to contract. At this point, the weakest portions of the pipes cannot withstand the pressure of the water and the pipes burst. This will not only cause physical damage to your property but water damage if the burst is not caught in a timely manner. These damages will allow you to file a claim with your insurance company. Many residents may not know the details of their policy, or the tricks insurance companies may use to deny, delay, or underpay their claim.
