Upcoming Storm This Weekend 1/28

1/27/2022 (Permalink)

We have a winter storm warning over here in southern New Jersey for the weekend ahead of us. Some reports say 1-3 inches while others are saying 8-12 inches depending on the route the storm goes. As of right now it seems precipitation is to start around 7pm on Friday the twenty eighth. If you can go out and get the necessary supplies to stay home between Friday night and Saturday we recommend staying off the roads.  

Winter storms and temperatures leave homes susceptible to frozen pipes. Frozen pipes burst and can cause severe water damage in the home as well as microbial growth. If water starts to flow find a shut off valve! Call a plumber, call us, and call your insurance carrier and report a claim. We are faster to any size disaster and the quicker we are on site the less of a chance for secondary damage within the home. Stay safe this weekend New Jersey!
