Clear your gutters
Once leaves start falling gutters and drainpipes will start to fill. A blocked downpipe can cause a back up into the guttering which can leak into the roof and down the walls. From just £86.40 we will inspect and clear all gutters and downpipes. Ideally his should be done once every year.
Lag those pipes
Burst pipes are common during winter due to rapid freezing and thawing. This can cause a lot of damage. Certain pipes should be lagged which will insulate them and stop them from freezing. Any outside taps should be turned off, your garden hose should be disconnected and any remaining water drained out.
Ensure your heating is working efficiently
After the hot summer most heating systems haven’t been turned on for months. If your radiators are colder at the top than the bottom it means they aren’t working properly and heat isn’t circulating. The radiators will need bleeding to release the trapped air. If you do not want to do this yourself we will be happy to carry it out for you and while we are there we can check the whole system.
Keep your trees trimmed
Before the worst of the winter sets in it’s a good idea to get your trees trimmed and fences checked to make sure they are secure against strong winds. Heavy snow or strong winds can cause branches to break off, which can cause damage, and fences to blow down. We can help with any garden maintenance or landscaping work.
