4 Smart Ways To Make Sure Your Home Is Safe For Your Family As The Seasons Change

Whether it’s summer or winter, we’ve got you covered for safe guarding your home against all weather changes…!

Make protective paint and repairing sealants your first line of defense

If you are preparing for the bright and shiny weather, then the first thing that comes to your mind is sunbathing and trips to the beach. But just like this is the season for us to soak up the sun, it is the same for our home. To avoid the resulting inevitable cracks and discoloration due to harsh sunlight, consider protecting your decks, windows and doors with UV protective stains and sealants. In quite the same way, you should also use water resistant exterior paint to protect your walls against moisture during the rainy weather. This not only protects the home from wet walls, mold and mildew; it can also protect your walls against the sun by being fade and peel resistant.

Don’t wait until the last minute to check on threats to the roof

We believe that you should never wait until the last minute to check any part of your home for weather protection; but this is particularly vital to remember when it comes to your roof. Your roof can be a dangerous place to climb on to when the weather turns, so make sure you get rid of all potential harm while it’s safe. Check for leaks, shifted roof shingles, as well as cracked sealants around the roof. All of these could rob your home of its vital heat during the winter cold. Be also aware of potential threats from rotting branches too close to the house and especially the roof. Trim these yourself, or call for an arborist Perth to do it for you.

Always keep an eye out for leaks, cracks and critter entry points

Even if you don’t have a big enough garden to worry about rotting trees and tree stump grinding Perth, we’re very sure you might have issues with critters as the weather changes to the cold. From insects to larger critters, unexpected “guests” might decide to make your home their own if you don’t keep an eye out for their entry points. This can be a nuisance in the long run. In quite the same way, other leaks (taps or pipes) and cracks (windows and doors) can be equally annoying to deal with when the weather turns cold.

Test drive your air conditioners, heaters and insulators

Be smart and make sure to test drive your Air conditioners and heaters as your weather changes. As you might have not used these during the previous season (when it was cold and warm respectively), you might also have to get these serviced. It’s true that it will only take you a few days to get it repaired or serviced if it’s not working the way you want it to; but these are days in which you’ll have to unnecessarily be uncomfortable…only due to your negligence.
