Now is definitely the time to be looking over the house and checking the maintenance situation. I always worry when it is torrential rain time or horrendous gusts of wind. There is no need of course because I live in a property only 15 years old built by one of the major house builders of the time. However, having had the experience with our first very different home, of a gutter detaching itself spectacularly from the house and crashing down into the garden one winter, it has played on my mind every time!
Keeping abreast of all maintenance jobs is good for the householder. They can decide whether to hand the regular maintenance checking over to a contractor – that way everything that needs looking at will be and jobs are never left until problems actually manifest themselves. Their expertise does give tremendous peace of mind which is worth the fee every time.
