If you are enjoying (or not) the latest lockdown, why not carry out some essential home maintenance tasks.
We often become busy with work and let jobs slip as other priorities take over. The lockdown can be frustrating for many but also an opportunity!
Lockdown Tasks Around The Home
Here are some tasks you can carry out to maintain your home during the lockdown period.
- Cleaning Gutters
- Checking Drainage
- Top up the insulation
- Check the roof and felt
- Re-seal bath / shower
- Ventilate the home
Care should be taken when using ladders. Always have someone “foot” the ladder at the bottom and never carry out works during strong winds or very bad weather.
Unmaintained guttering is a common cause of damp as water can overflow and penetrate the external walls. Keep them clear and clear any debris and leaves from the drains. Excess water will be removed quicker meaning less damage to the building fabric.
Damp In The Attic or Walls
If you have checked your home or business premises this winter and found damp, we are here to help. Damp can be caused by many factors and we can carry out a building survey to locate the problem.
Our team of professional property surveyors work across Northern Ireland and we aim to get to quickly.
Property Survey Reports
We check your building for everything that can cause issues. After that, you will be presented with a property survey report written in plain English. This will help you rectify the issues quickly.
