Many homeowners neglect the exterior of their homes and simply focus on the interior. This is a mistake. Both interior and exterior home maintenance are important.
Many professional tradesmen agree that routine and regular exterior property maintenance is key to longer lasting exteriors that look better for longer. Little and often, rather than leaving property maintenance too long is key. Rather than being reactive and waiting until problems arise before you hire a professional.
Should you do DIY property maintenance? Well, this depends on your skills in this area, your experience and how confident you feel with the job at hand. For example, many of our clients don’t feel confident with climbing ladders, so hire us to do the job instead.
