HOUSTON, Dec. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PermitUsNow, an industry recognized building permitting and expediting firm located in Texas, is providing practical residential repair permits to homeowners and Contractors in case of busted water pipes due to incoming winter freeze. Parts of Texas are expecting to have sub-zero wind chills and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has assured Texans that the electrical grid is ready this time to handle freeze.
PermitUsNow knows the importance of being prepared for possible damage caused by winter conditions and to alert homeowners and contractors steps to consider when requiring a repair permit. Permitting tips to fix water damage and busted pipes are available at permitusnow.com.
“We’re in Texas; and we know that winter storm Uri that occurred earlier this year still have a lot of folks scared of possible frozen pipes leading to water damage to their homes. We do what we do best and that’s being a great resource share permitting tips to homeowners and Contractors if homes repairs are needed.” Helen Callier, president of PermitUsNow commented.
PermitUsNow realizes that inflation has impacted many homeowners and it is our goal to help Texans minimize any future financial hit by sharing insights on when to pull repair permits due to busted pipes. For example, if extensive damage to pipes incurs and is over the minimum length of water pipes that is specified as minor work by your local permitting jurisdiction then a plumbing repair work is required.
If a homeowner decides to expand the scope of repair work and wants to move walls and remodel home, then a building permit is needed for structural work.
“We are happy to be a building permitting resource to Contractors and homeowners in Texas. During this pending freeze we want to minimize homeowners’ concerns if they should experience water damage requiring a permit and avoid spending money where it’s not needed. We’re in Texas; and we’re helping out where we can.” Moruf Jimoh, AAIA, Technical Manager, PermitUsNow
