What steps can you take to avoid that?

Tap repairs & service

Have your roof/gutters/downpipes checked for debris Your roof is often forgotten because it is not at eye level to give you a subtle reminder every time you walk past it. Clear leaves, dirt and debris from gutters and examine downpipes for damage or loose pieces. Just remember, 97% of ladder injuries occurred in residential settings. For a safer option call us and we can examine this for you.

Have your heating system serviced Before the temperature takes a dip, have your heating system serviced to make sure it is working efficiently. Servicing also extends the life of your system (meaning you save money in the long term).

Check windows and doors for drafts The majority of heating at your property is lost through the windows and doors. Go through your property and ensure all seals around windows and doors are in good condition. Having blinds and curtains will also help in keeping the warmth in.

Before you start renovating to sell or renovating your dream house there are some things to consider. It’s important to remember renovation is a long term investment; your decisions will have important consequences down the line. If you don’t plan on selling you property straight away you need to weigh up splurging on what you love or buying the cheapest bathroom taps or painting in neutral colours that potential buyers like. Your decisions will have important consequences down the line.

So here are 3 Things You Need To Know Before Renovating. Have a clear strategy Plan ahead and set yourself targets. A timeline that you review at least every few days is a great way to stay on track. Be realistic about your budget Overspending is a real concern for renovators. It’s easy to do, that’s why a budget is vital in your renovation planning. Work with your tradesman to come to the best outcome for everyone. It’s also a good idea to have a buffer in your budget and it should be at least 10% of the total budget. Compare Whether you’re just giving a room a face lift with some paint, or undertaking a grand scale renovation, you should always compare quotes. Shop around and make sure you get the best and fairest deal. Remember, the cheapest is not necessarily the best. You want a fair price with service to back it up.

“On time me, excellent explaination of job. Speedy service whilst stillll being thorough.” B. Saturno – Brighton

“Our store managers are very happy. I also think the service is amazing and quality of the workmanship is also excellent. What I really like is the communication between myself and the plumbers that are onsite, they always call me when they are there and explain to me the issues and what they can do to resolve it. I look after 30 Max Brenner stores and I have to say PlumbAssist is the most professional company that I deal with.” Daniel Mashalany - Facilities Manager, Max Brenner

“I arrived home from a 2 week holiday in the late afternoon to find my house flooded. My main concerns when looking for a plumber are service, punctuality, skill, friendliness, price and cleanliness. With PlumbAssist there was no need to have any concerns. They took the time to explain the issue, which was a burst flexible water connector and explain the solutions. I would definitely recommend PlumbAssist for their good service and professional ability.” E. Cohen – Home Owner, Elsternwick
