Pressure wash the patio.
Pressure wash any outdoor surfaces that are looking grubby, mossy and dirty. This includes the patio, driveway and stone steps. Perhaps you have noticed that weeds started to grow out of the cracked grout in-between patio slabs? If so, it’s time to regrout paving stones as well as pressure wash. If you require an experienced tradesman to pressure wash your outdoor paving, we offer various jet washing services.
Paint garden fence.
A damaged garden fence is not doing much whilst an old and not-so-white garden fence will be an eyesore in any garden. So, why not update your garden fence this summer? Garden fences, garden sheds and other exterior wooden furnishings can be quickly uplifting with a new coat of paint. We can paint a variety of surfaces, including paint garden fences, paint exterior doors and paint house exterior. For a quick refresh, opt to gloss garden fences.
Uplift garden furniture.
Garden furniture that has been left out in the open during autumn, winter and spring will need some attention. It is recommended to either store or cover outdoor furniture during the harsher months. However, there are always ways to uplift your garden furniture after the cold and wet weather. This includes pressure washing garden furniture, treating wooden garden furniture, painting garden furniture and more.
Clean the gutters.
Gutters can easily be filled with leaves and debris after storms and other weather conditions. To ensure the normal flow of water, clean the gutters. Besides eliminating blockages, it is also essential to make sure gutters are in good condition and without cracks and leakages.
Replace old windows.
Replacing windows during the cold months of winter will be the last thing you will want to do. So, leave it for summer (if you can!). Whether your windows are not working as they should and need repairing or you have old windows that have been draughtproof year after year but still letting cold air in and warm air out, it’s time to replace the windows. Our carpenters can replace sash windows, repair sash windows and more.
