It was a scorcher! We really can’t complain about the heat we’ve enjoyed this summer, and although we can hope that the fair weather heralds a good winter to follow, we are sure to experience some rain, wind and cooler climes in the months ahead.
Just as we dig out our winter coats, hats and gloves as the seasons turn, it makes sense to ensure that our homes are ready to brave the elements too. One thing I always suggest at the first fall of heavy rain or on gusty day is to head outside and check that your guttering is up to scratch. If not and there are signs of damp on your home’s fascia, it’s time to consider a repair or replacement to your roofline.
Similarly, a breezy day can often reveal some shocking draughts through windows or doors which, left unattended, can see your heating bills soar during winter. There are a wide range of options to suit all budgets, so whether you need a budget solution or are looking for timber-effect sash replacement windows for a period property, we can create a stylish solution.
It’s not just your home which may need weatherproofing for winter. Be sure to check that outhouses with flat roofs and garage doors are watertight and prepared for all that mother nature can throw at them.
