Happy Spring!

Water DamageSpringtime brings with it warmth and flowers, but it can also bring bursting pipes and floods.  Such is the case with a family member’s home (pictured left).  Needless to say, everyone in our family has been quite busy trying to help put humpty dumpty back together.

A word of caution:  for anyone with American Family Insurance, be sure to have them fully explain to you all the things that they don’t cover (like bursting pipes), preferably in writing and in layman’s terms, so that you aren’t stuck footing the entire repair bill yourself.  Shutting off the water if you plan to be away for more than a few days would also be wise.
