5 Home Improvements To Think About Ahead Of Winter

September 27th 2018

The beautiful summer months presented householders with the perfect opportunity to enhance their properties before the arrival of winter. If you failed to take advantage of the heatwave, don’t worry as there’s still chance to get it in a suitable condition for when the cold weather really bites hard. Not sure what measures to take and which improvements to implement? Leave the thinking to us and follow all or at least some of the following courses of action… Replace your old conservatory roof Unfortunately for some conservatory owners they get very little use out of their extension in the winter due to how cold it gets inside. This is caused by the ineffective insulation offered by the roofing system. All-year round use can be achieved again without knocking your old conservatory down and constructing a new one. All you need to do is have a solid roof crafted suitably and fitted in place of the existing roof to restore thermal efficiency. Fit energy efficient windows We hate to be pessimists but let’s anticipate that this winter will be exceptionally cold. Having that mindsight should spur you to check that your existing windows are performing at their very best. If they’re not they should be replaced immediately. Energy efficient double or triple glazed windows, like those in the Residence Collection, will see off the weather and give you the comfiest of households. Inspect your roofline The word ‘roofline’ will mean little to some people. It’s the collective term for your fascias, soffits, bargeboards, antefixes and cladding which serve a very important purpose – to protect your property from water damage. Remove any dirt, moss or fallen leaves from your guttering so that rainwater can easily run through it and ensure all other components of your roofline are in the best possible condition. When replacing any form of roofline, opt for a weather-resistant UPVC replacement. Upgrade your boiler Getting your boiler serviced annually is extremely important as it reduces the risk of the boiler breaking down at an inopportune time. This service is also designed to identify any faults with a boiler so that they can either be rectified or it may be determined that a new boiler is required. Modern boilers are far more energy efficient than old boilers and are well worth considering if you want to make huge savings on energy bills in the long-term. Change your home décor Does the inside of your house have any sort of wintry feel? If not, it is very easy to incorporate some fashionable wintry touches into your interior in time for its arrival. So far as colour is concerned, navy is extremely popular at the moment and you can find various soft furnishings in this classic colour in the shops. There has also been a move towards sustainable and homemade homewares and furniture if you want something eco-friendly and with that personal touch.
