Water Damage Is Not a Joke for the Homeowners

Water-related damage causes a loss of millions of dollars for homeowners every single year. 

A sampling of 68 percent of American home insurers found that water-related losses totaled $12.3 billion between 1997 and 2004.

Based on the survey data, the average cost of a water claim in 2004 was $5074, up from $2484 in 1997. 

With the increase in water damage becoming obvious, The Plumbing Works is happy to provide some helpful tips for identifying leaks and major water issues. Contact us today!
