Spring maintenance jobs to tackle today
- Checking the roof- for flat roofs, winter can cause problems with freezing and thawing cycles. You should check your roof over for signs of damage. You might also notice some standing water, and this will need to be seen by a professional. For pitched roofs, you want to look out for missing slates, and gaps in the flashing or pointing.
- Checking the gutters- winter might be wet and cold, but April is often one of the wettest months. Making sure your gutters are not blocked is essential to be able to clear the water. Otherwise, you could find that your building suffers from water damage, or water ingress, which could be very problematic.
- Checking your brickwork- again winter can be a challenge for your brickwork. In fact the freeze and thaw cycle can lead to cracks developing, which could damage your building.
If you notice any issues when checking your property, you should seek immediate, professional support. Any damage to the outside of your property, no matter how small, can cause a lot of expensive destruction in the long run.
