First Call Claim provides loss assessment and insurance claim assistance for homes that have been damage by burst pipes and water leaks.
Burst pipes are perhaps the most common cause of damage to homes and as such the most common insurance claims. Burst pipes mainly occur during winter months. During cold weather the water in underground, and overground, pipes can freeze and expand. This puts pressure on the pipes and can cause them to burst and explode. Water leaks from showers, taps, pipework, and appliances can cause damage at any time of the year. Whatever the cause of the water damage, it usually more serious than it may first appear. If ignored the water can cause structural problems, rot, mould and mildew growth, rust, and electrical issues.
