Spruce up for Spring
Spring is the time that we all get to say goodbye to those dark, dull days and hello to sunshine, lighter evenings and spending more time outside in the fresh air with friends and loved ones. It’s also the time of year when we start to look at the exterior of our properties and realise the toll that the winter has taken on our homes. Our property maintenance specialists share some tips for sprucing up your property.
Depending on the type of property you live in, exterior decorating can either be relatively simple or a major task. Modern homes with an exposed brick exterior and UPVC doors, window frames, gutters and soffits will require fairly little decoration and maintenance.
By comparison, older properties with painted render, wooden doors, wooden window frames, fascias and soffits are likely to require much more maintenance to keep them looking tidy and presentable. At M J Burt Property Maintenance, we have a highly qualified team of decorators who can have your home looking as good as new.

Guttering, fascias and soffits - repairs or replacement
At M J Burt Property Maintenance Ltd, we can repair sections of damage, or install new guttering, fascias and soffit systems depending on your needs or requirements. It could be easier than you think to repair or replace your systems - simply contact our roofing and guttering specialists today! Whether you have some missing tiles or an unidentified leak, we are able to help resolve the issue quickly and efficiently.
If your guttering becomes blocked with leaves or debris from the roof, you could be left with issues caused by leaks and damp. Regular gutter cleaning will help your gutters drain away water when necessary. When guttering and downpipes become clogged up, it can cause water to overflow the guttering and run down the walls of the building instead. Over time, this can damage the outside of your property. Cleaning your gutters will eliminate the need for remedial works caused by damp or water damage.
Once you have the exterior of your property looking as good as new, why not start to consider the latest in exterior design trends. Your exterior can be considered as an extra room, so why not treat it as one.
Treating your garden as an inside/outside space is becoming more and more popular. Whether it’s creating a kitchen garden full of herbs and vegetables, a place to meditate and relax with aromatic plants and flowers, or an extension to your children’s play space, we’re all looking to extend our home’s footprint by utilising the garden.
When it comes to using colour in your garden, look at what you already have as a backdrop. Is it a rustic brick wall in a courtyard garden? A lush green oasis? Or perhaps a balcony with a jet black railing? Try to reflect the colours and tones to best suit the space. You can use furniture, ornaments, planting and even soft furnishings such as cushions and blankets to really make the space your own.
