Every winter season, numerous homes fall victim to ice and water damage. At WINMAR®, our slogan is, “Coming Through For You!”, therefore it’s important for us to provide education on these common factors and what you can do to prevent water damage to your home. We can also help you to save money in the long run. 


Burst Pipes

As we continue to experience below freezing temperatures, being prepared for a situation where one of your pipes burst is essential. Pipe bursts happen due to the water inside expanding as it gets close to freezing temperature. This increases the pressure inside the pipe. When the pressure becomes too high for the pipe to contain, it can fracture.

Water Damage

Ice storms, and freezing rain can cause severe damage to your property. This can weaken your home’s structural integrity and cost you a hefty sum. If neglected, significant secondary damage can develop such as water damage, resulting from melting ice as temperatures begin to rise.


Basement Flood

Water damage is one of the most common forms of property damage & as you already know, a wet basement is no joke. Basement flooding continues to arise for many homeowners.  However, you can easily solve this problem by fixing a crack in the wall or getting new windows. In more serious cases, a sump pump may be required.

Sump Pump Failure

Sump pump failure is another common issue that you may encounter. For more information on this topic take a look at our article on why sump pumps fail and what to do next.


Mould Growth

Water damage can easily lead to mould growth, resulting in a higher cost of remediation. This can pose as a serious health risk. With our professional remediation services, we can immediately assess and eliminate mould, prevent further property damage, and create a clean and healthy environment for you and your family. Some species of mould are toxic, and others are non-toxic. Learn how to identify which species are harmful to you, by reading our article on mould vs toxic mould
