Top tips for winter home maintanance

    Check for leaks and blockages. Now is the perfect time when drains and gutters can get blocked by leaves and debris like twigs and bird nests.

    If anything obstructs the easy flow of water away from a building, damp can occur. If you notice that water’s falling sharply from a certain point on a gutter, there’s probably a blockage there, so scoop it out with a trowel, taking full safety precautions if you’re using a ladder.

     To stop gutters getting blocked, fit gutter guards, grates that block debris but still allow rainwater to get through.

    I can’t say enough good things about Shannon.  Attentive, proactive, asked questions to understand our needs/wants. She always made time for us, she was patient when we were picky. We never felt pressured and always felts like she had our best interests in mind. There were many times that my husband and I wondered about how she could be so generous with her time and so accessible. She was always professional and organized and knew exactly what features we were looking for. Thank you, thank you,…
