January 24, 2014

Plumbing RepairProper plumbing repair is not a task to be taken lightly. It is important to call an experienced and reliable Richmond, BC plumbing service in order to ensure that the repairs you received last a long time and do not cause further problems with your plumbing system. Whether you are looking for emergency plumbing repair due to a leak or backed-up drain or you need more routine maintenance done on your pipes or plumbing system, call Tap-Roots plumbers to get the job done right the first time.

When to Budget for Plumbing Repairs

While an issue that requires professional plumbing repair can happen any time, winter is the season that is frequently hardest on your plumbing. Cold weather can cause water to freeze in the pipes, expanding and putting pressure on the pipe from within. This frequently leads to burst pipes and leaks at all points in the plumbing system.

Risks Associated with Inadequate Maintenance and Repairs

Houses with no heat or insufficient heating systems are especially at risk, because the lack of heat is what causes the pipes to burst. During periods of very cold weather, many plumbers find themselves with more business than they can handle, and they may switch to extended hours or bring in additional staff in order to cope with it. Common plumbing problems caused by cold weather include no water pressure in the home, a lack of hot water, or leaks from within the walls or ceilings that occur when burst pipes start to drip.

The next time you need plumbing repair, call Tap-Roots at 604-222-1282.
