In Western Australia, summer signals the end of school, and the start of holidays, BBQ season and beach time! For ambitious new home builders, it’s also time to tackle those home maintenance projects that have been waiting in the wings all winter. The change of season into warmer weather is the perfect time to start those summer projects to spruce up your home, and potentially save you thousands of dollars.
Following are 3 easy tasks for home builders (Perth) heading into summer, which will hopefully save you a bundle of effort and money down the track.
Sure, clearing out the gutters is probably a 2 out of 10 on the fun scale, but ignoring the job could mean costly repair bills in the future. Water, leaves and debris can accumulate in your gutters over winter, which can lead to water damage in your house. While you’re cleaning the gutters, check for leaks and breaks, which should be repaired promptly.
A splash of fresh paint will make your home look great, while simultaneously working as a protective skin against UV light and moisture. Start by renting a power washer to prepare your walls for a fresh coat of paint. Using a mild detergent, you can easily wash away dirt, dust, bird droppings, tree sap, and more. Once you’ve completed painting the house, your entire property look better.
The start of summer is the ideal time to seal, stain or paint your deck and have it BBQ-ready. If your wooden deck is looking a little worn, staining or painting it will make it look like a million bucks, but you’ll only spend a tiny fraction of that amount. Decks should be sealed and painted every two to three years, depending on your environment.
