Protect Your Home’s Exterior

Weatherly Woes
As the saying goes, “The first impression is the best impression.” The same applies for your house; the interior maybe well organised and clean but if the outside of your home is dirty and worn out because of the weather, then it may leave the wrong impression amongst your guests. Rain, wind and sun can cause excessive amounts of damage if preventive measures are not taken. The paint will start chipping, doors and windows begin to creak and in a worst-case scenario, you may end up with a leaky ceiling.
With problems such as these, finding someone to fix them for you, who’ll come on time and won’t charge you excessively is going to be the real task.

Protective Measures
Now, there are ways that you will help you avoid using your life savings to fix your house. The concept of #DIY shall save you the hassle of chasing up workers, overpaying for mediocre work and you’ll learn a few things on the way. Not to forget the joy and fun involved in doing it yourself!
·         In case of a leaky roof, use a waterproof paint that contains a “membrane’ forming function. This will prevent water infiltration and should keep the rain out of your room.
·         Paint the exterior of your house with high quality weather proof paint once every two and half years and then once every five to six years after that. It’s a simple logic, the more number of coats, the better protection you’ll get.
·         For creaky windows and doors, oil the hinges regularly but if it’s too late for oil (You’ll know when oiling doesn’t help at all) change the hinges.
