A Cold Forecast Means Frozen Pipes, Ice Dams

January 23rd, 2009     Noyes Hall & Allen
The arctic cold returns this weekend, according to the NWS forecast. Our phones have been busy this week with two kinds of claims: frozen pipes and ice dams. Local plumbers, water extraction contractors and heating technicians expect lots of overtime this weekend. We are ready to handle an influx of claims if necessary. 

One of the companies we represent, OneBeacon Insurance has issued a bulletin with some useful instructions for how to safely thaw frozen water pipes. Their website also has a good winter safety checklist that addresses topics like preventing damage from heavy snow,  frozen pipes and ice dams. 

Speaking of ice dams, the University of Minnesota Extension Service has an excellent article explaining what they are, what causes them and how to prevent them. 

As always, Noyes Hall & Allen clients can contact us in a claim emergency any time, night or day. Stay warm and stay safe!
