Regular home maintenance and repairs are critical to the lasting value of your home. Home maintenance should be done on a regular basis before small problems become much bigger problems and more serious damage occurs. This is an aspect of owning a home that most people forget about and it is important to realise this as soon as possible. Our lives are very fast paced and busy, it is very easy to put things off from time to time, however these problems can tend to get out of hand!
Preventative home maintenance saves a lot of time and money in the long run and should be carried out properly and efficiently by a professional the first time around to ensure lasting quality. When the time comes to value your property, consistency and quality goes a very long way.
To name a few important points, before winter it is important to check the flow and condition of your gutters. Should there be any leaks, water can cause a number of very costly problems to timber and paint. Another thing to check is if any timber is protected from not only moisture but direct sunlight as well. Replacing an entire deck or timber frames is a very costly exercise which can be prevented with varnish every 1 to 2 years depending on its condition.
