Freezing temperature prevention tips
Freezing temperatures can cause a lot of unforeseen damage to a home. Most of this can be avoided by following these tips:
External: When temperatures drop, spread salt on garden paths, driveways and external porches so ice cannot form and cause a slipping hazard. Ensure that there are no cracks in any bricks, slates or tiles as water can get into them, freeze, expand and cause more damage.
Internal: The main problem associated with indoors in relation to freezing cold temperatures is that of frozen and bursting pipes. More tips on how to limit the damage associated with frozen pipes can be found in our article on Leaking Water Damage Prevention.
