Cold Temps means PROTECT PIPES!

Here we go!  The coldest temps of this season yet with windchills coming in the next 3 to 4 days.  Some are saying a 'roller-coaster' weather pattern.  In the meantime, a quick review of PIPE protection.  One pipe burst can flood your property and make this Christmas season a sudden nightmare!  

As a public service, take these 5 precautions so you won't have that miserable event take place:

  • CLOSE all foundation vents so cold air won't get in.
  • CLOSE & SEAL your crawl space door.  That is your outside wind-blocker!  Seal it tight!
  • DRIP a steady stream of water from one or two interior sinks spread-out in your home.
  • UNHOOK garden hose from the spigot and cover exterior faucets with insulating material.
  • KNOW where the main water shut-off valve is located so you can quickly turn off that water if a pipe does burst.  Make a bee-line to it if you hear water!

Every winter season we get those sad phone calls from customers who have frozen and then burst pipes.  Taking these quick precautions could make a big difference between a fun holiday or a horribly wet one in your home.

Is your boat REALLY covered with the RIGHT insurance?

Boating season is literally upon us. Whether you fish, ski, or just take the boat out to relax, you HAVE to ask the question - "Am I covered for what might happen out on the water!?" What we find is that many boat owners just purchase a policy by making sure the price is affordable, and they sometimes miss the small print about what IS and what IS NOT covered. We write insurance on boats and have several policies in force for happy customers. But as I've mentioned, we always want to make sure...
