Home Improvements Ahead of Winter

Lockdown in the UK, and the summer months have given homeowners a chance to enhance their properties before the arrival of what is possibly going to be a harsh British winter. If you’re sitting reading this thinking, “I’ve missed out, I should’ve taken advantage of the nice weather for home improvements” - don’t worry, there’s still time to get your home in a good condition for when the cold weather really hits. 

Not sure what you need to do to improve your home ahead of the winter? Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered. 

Upgrade the 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.

Inspect the 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.

Fit Energy Efficient Windows & Doors

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 and doors are performing at their very best. If they’re not they should be replaced immediately. Energy efficient double or triple glazed windows, will see off the weather and give you the comfiest of households. Inotherm doors will give your home unrivalled thermal insulation, meaning you stay nice and toasty even if the weather outside has other ideas!

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.
