Cottage Openings & Closings 

Northern Michigan summers are hard to beat. Winter on the other hand can be another story. According to State Farm Fire and Casualty Company, an average of 250,000 American families have their homes ruined each winter because of water pipes freezing and breaking. When you’re closing your cabin this Fall, it’s important to make sure the plumbing is properly winterized and ready to endure the frigid Northern Michigan temperatures. 

Get peace of mind when you leave and return to your seasonal home and avoid costly plumbing problems when you hire Moore Mechanical as your plumbing service provider. As licensed and insured plumbers, Moore Mechanical provides the necessary plumbing services that are needed for closing and opening seasonal homes. Moore Mechanical has been providing seasonal cottage closing and opening service for decades!

Closing / Winterizing 

Moore Mechanical will turn off the water, drain the plumbing system and blow the lines clear of any water to prevent freezing damage during the cold weather months. Treatment of toilets, drains and appliances with non-toxic antifreeze is also included. 

Opening / De-Winterizing 

De-winterizing is the process of turning the water back on to a property. The water is turned on to the house and all systems are inspected for possible leaking. The air is removed from all plumbing lines and the antifreeze is removed from toilets, drains, and appliances.
