Michigan is home to the most beautiful weather yet it can be severe! Humid weather with rain storms in the summer and heavy snow with freezing pipes in the winter. The ever changing weather can cause expansion in the plumbing system of your home and commercial building.

Why does this matter? Because a pipe can swell when frozen and then burst when pushed past capacity and cause flooding in your home. You may be thinking that you can do the repair, that you have some tools and can turn off the water valve and replace any broken pipes.


Did you pull the permit for that? Is your at home DIY project of repair up to city and county plumbing code? That reason alone is enough to encourage you to call the professional plumber! If you think at any time that you may want to sell your home or increase/decrease your insurance policy, having a DIY plumbing repair can lower the home value and stall the insurance application.

If you choose to do a DIY repair on the kitchen sink plumbing, it can affect the pressure in the water heater and follow the line into the sump pump. There is where pressure is key to pump a flood of water out of the basement and keep it dry and your home free from black mold infestation.
