Christmas may seem like a distant memory and new year is fast approaching, but here at Arnold Laver we are ready to welcome 2017 with a few DIY tasks. If you’re looking to add to your list of new year projects or you are desperate to get started now, why not continue to read below for our top winter tasks!
Spare rooms generally remain unused for the majority of the year, so now is the time to get them in tip top shape. The key is to create a welcoming atmosphere, giving guests the feeling of home from home. Now is the time to tackle diy tasks such as touching up paint work, hanging pictures or shelves, even minor jobs like cleaning windows! The aim is to give your chosen room that little bit of tlc, so now really is the time to get those last few jobs polished off.
With the festive season in full swing and the new year nearly here, it is essential you tackle any minor repairs in good time. From fixing the emergency chairs to giving the hallway a lick of paint – every DIY task whether it be small or large needs to be done!
Unfortunately it is nearly the time to remove those Christmas decorations and this includes any outdoor lighting. If you have any lights around your guttering, take the time to check the condition of your gutters. We would advise that you ensure all debris is removed and there are no blockages.
Although it is important to be vigilant all year round when it comes to the security of your home, we would advise that during the festive season you take extra care. Take the time to double check locks and security systems around your home. From your front door to your side gate, even your garage – it is important you maintain the security of your home at all times.
Block The Breeze!
When you turn your heating on during the colder months, it is important to try and keep the heat inside your home. Keep that cold breeze at bay with a few simple checks! Take the time to double check all existing seals are intact around windows and doors – for a quick fix why not purchase a draught excluder to use around the home?
