Addressing Plumbing Leaks In Your Home

Addressing Plumbing Leaks In Your Home

As a homeowner, there’s a good chance that at some point, you’re going to have to deal with a plumbing leak. However, plumbing leaks do not have to be something that catches you off guard or cause extensive damage. By taking a few preventative measures, you can cut down on your risk of plumbing leaks significantly.


Know When Leaks Begin


Although we are headed toward another cold Maryland winter, you should know that as the weather begins to warm next spring, you should start checking for leaks. That’s because pipes most often start leaking in the early spring after the winter thaw. Because we tend to be on the receiving end of severe winter weather, you should make it a point to check the piping in your home next spring. Look for areas where leaks have occurred. If you notice damp spots on your floor or ceiling, try to pinpoint from where the leaks are coming.


Contact The Professionals At Cardigan


Another way to cut down on the risk of plumbing leaks is by contacting the team of experts at Cardigan Kitchen and Baths. If you live in an older home, your plumbing system may be outdated. This increases the likelihood that your pipes will rust or leak. Modern plumbing systems should not be exposed to freezing temperatures nor should they have much risk of leaking.

At Cardigan, we can work with you to complete a kitchen or bathroom remodel that overhauls your plumbing system. This is an investment in your home that will not only increase its value but will cut down on stress levels significantly. Be sure to contact us today so that we can evaluate and address your plumbing system before the temperatures begin to cool.
