Home maintenance tasks perfect for the summer

Property maintenance isn’t something that everyone jumps at the chance to do but we have to admit that it’s a lot more enjoyable when the sun shines on our backs. Not only are some maintenance tasks and projects more enjoyable in the summer but some just make sense to complete in fairer weather. So, let’s take a closer look at home maintenance tasks that are perfect for completing in the summer.

Gutter cleaning

Gutter cleaning is a job that many people put off but the longer you leave it the worse it becomes. Clogged gutters and drains from leaves, sludge and general debris can mean you are left with water pooling dangerously close to your walls and roof.

If water continues to pool it can cause damp which seeps into the building, creating further issues such as mould and rot. Properly cleared and cleaned gutters are most effective during heavy rainfall, so clearing them out before winter arrives is essential.

We provide a professional gutter cleaning service to ensure that no matter how high, we can get the job done and spot any potential issues with your guttering you may otherwise be unaware of.

Roof surveys

The roof is a building’s strongest defence against elements like rain and wind but because it’s so high up, few of us can check on its condition from the ground. The summer is a great time for a roof survey because the elements are working in your favour. Visibility is better and if any work does need doing, dry weather is the optimal condition.

Our cherry picker operators are experienced in using a variety of powered access platforms, depending on the building type, allowing roof surveyors to do their jobs. Roof surveys may throw up property maintenance tasks such as missing and damaged tiles, leaking flat roofs, chimney stack repairs or essential repointing work.

Repainting and freshening up your exterior

Whether you own your own home or are running a management company for an apartment or office block, the summer is the best time for a repainting project. The summer temperature provides the perfect drying environment, allowing you to paint faster and get through the coat layers as quickly as possible. Not to mention the lack of rain which can halt an exterior painting project in its tracks.

If you are looking for a professional painting service, we are perfectly placed to provide your home or property with a fresh coat of paint. Our team of skilled and experienced painters are on hand to upgrade your exterior and interior walls with minimal disruption to you or your business.

Tree surgery and weed removal

Having a tree in your garden is a wonderful connection to nature that many people can enjoy throughout the year. However, there are some responsibilities with tree ownership and you must ensure that it isn’t growing too wild and out of control.

Trees must not encroach into your neighbour’s property and you must also ensure their branches don’t get too close to your windows or overhang any power lines. For that reason, some tree surgery is an essential property maintenance task.

We provide operated cherry picker hire for tree surgery to ensure that any branches you need taming are done in a safe and controlled manner. Our high-access platforms provide access to trees and other difficult-to-reach areas of your property to remove weeds and overgrown plants.
