Maintain your Property during Summertime
Summer is the perfect time to complete any maintenance work on your property. Whether you are a homeowner or a landlord, the weather of the summer makes any maintenance work a breeze, as wetter and colder weathers can damage construction materials. In this blog, we’ll outline some of the things that you can do to help maintain your home.
Painting & Repairing
During the summer, while the temperatures are high, taking the time to paint your walls or any furniture is recommended. The summer is a great time to give your home and furniture a fresh coat of paint. Whether you choose to paint your home an entirely new colour or you’re just in need of a touch-up, the wet materials will dry quicker than they would in the cold weather. But before you begin to paint, look for any holes or cracks in both the exterior and interior of your home. Repairing any damage before the winter months roll round will help keep your home warm and energy bills low.
Repair the exterior of your home
Those of you who work 9-5 hardly see the daylight in the winter. As you’ve now got more daylight after work, taking the summer to repair or make any home improvements to the exterior of your house is a good idea. Repair any broken roof tiles, clean the walls, clear out the chimney and check for any broken guttering so that your winter is hassle-free, and your house is clean, ready for when the temperature drops, and you put your Christmas decorations up!
Making sure that all your essential appliances have been serviced during the summer will not only be cheaper for you. This is due to the fact that there are far less boiler breakdowns in the summer than the winter. Checking up on your appliances isn’t the only thing that you should service; servicing your boiler during the summer is highly recommended. Having the security that your boiler is safe and ready to use without any breakdowns is an added bonus.
Update your security
Keeping on top of your home security is important for you can your family. While checking your home for any potential threats, if you’ve identified areas of your property that you may have not before realised were issues before, such as cracks or broken garden gate locks, taking the time to fix these problems can help you and your family sleep safely at night. The final thing to ensure total security is to upgrade your windows, doors and security locks. If your windows and doors are old or in need of a deep clean, now is the time to maintain them.
