2020-04-14T17:35:33+00:00

Arranging for work to be completed on your house can be a stressful experience. Because the cost of work is typically so high, you need to be 100% confident with the builders’ ability to carry out the work to your exact specifications. And, based on research conducted by the Federation of Master Builders, fewer and fewer homeowners feel this way; because of the anxiety over hiring a competent builder, the UK is missing out on £10 billion worth of investment […]

Property damage: most common causes

2019-07-05T08:37:28+00:00

Sustaining damage to your property is a disaster. And, as much as we believe we have prepared to account for every eventuality, sometimes we are completely helpless. Faced with the irresistible force of the elements, our home’s defences can very quickly be rendered inadequate. Sometimes we only have ourselves to blame: a failure to act quickly enough to neutralise a potential threat or purely through accidental means. A detailed understanding of the most likely threats to your home gives you […]

Painting the exterior of your property, in its entirety, is right up there with the most time-consuming DIY tasks.
