Winter Property Maintenance in Stafford

04 Dec 2019

December marks the start of Winter and with it the challenges to your property from the colder weather conditions. Even with all the distractions of the festive season, keeping your property maintenance programme up to date will prevent small issues arising. If they do, you can stop them before they turn into much bigger and expensive fixes.

Winter Property Maintenance Jobs

Is your home feeling colder? There are plenty of maintenance tasks which can counter the drop in temperature and keep you nice and cosy indoors. Have good insulation installed in your loft. Did you know that a quarter of heat is lost through the roof in an uninsulated home. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is an easy and effective way to reduce heat loss, become more energy efficient and reduce your heating bills.

Also, having any internal pipes cladded will prevent freezing. This stops flooding and the associated damage to ceilings once they thaw.

Draughts around doors and windows are uncomfortable and indicate where cold air is getting in and warm air is escaping. Get seals and draught excluders fitted to prevent this from happening.

For external jobs we can check the roof for any faults and loose tiles. Getting these repaired avoids slates falling and any potential weather damage or leaks into your loft and upstairs.

Getting gutters and fascias cleaned of any build up of leaves and moss prevents blockages and overflowing. Stopping excess water running down brickwork.
How safe are your external pipes? Fixing them and getting them secured before stronger winds, rain and snow arrive is a good preventative measure. Other outdoor infrastructure like sheds, fences and gates all need to be fixed, treated, and preserved as a precaution against winter conditions.
