Guttering

Guttering

We advise that you check your gutters and downpipes, these are easily blocked and can cause water damage to roofing and external walls.

External Paintwork

External Paintwork

It is always a good idea to check the paintwork around external windows and doors, any peeling in the paintwork can allow water to penetrate the timber and begin to rot the wood, a quick coat of paint can save costly replacement of windows and doors in the future.

Window Accessibility

Window Accessibility

Check that windows do not stick when you try to open them, this will only intensify over the winter months.

External Lighting

External Lighting

We advise you check external bulbs for signs of damage, long dark winter nights are not the ideal time to be without exterior lighting.

Draught Excluders

Draught Excluders

Check that all draught excluders are performing correctly, if not this will result in increased fuel bills.

External Pointing

External Pointing

We advise that you check all external pointing for signs of cracks, if not treated this can result in water penetrating the external brickwork of your property.

External Pipework

External Pipework

It is advised that all external pipework is lagged, this will protect the pipes from freezing and bursting.

Garden Fencing

Garden Fencing

We strongly recommend that you check all garden fence posts for signs of weakness, strong autumn and winter winds can easily blow down the most secure of garden fences.
