Frozen February By Melissa Esham 3/5/2015 Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley processed 90 claims this February. 68% or 61 claims were frozen pipes. We shine during the claims process and will be there with our clients as these claims are mitigated, restored and closed. We won’t stop there. We will continue to work with leaders in all industries to help our clients review best practices for storm and emergency preparation. After the winter of 2014, many second home communities took additional precautions going in to 2015. Individual units were checked to make sure the heat was on and the water was turned off. In some instances this helped and others still experienced repeated losses. We wish to help our communities become better equipped to handle extreme temperatures and the issues than can arise. Thanks for reading.
