Welcome to Maintenance Week!

It might have passed you by this week, but just in case, before you settle down to writing Christmas cards and ordering presents, it’s vital to make sure you don’t have any 25th December disasters by checking your home from top to bottom.

Find out more by visiting the Maintain your Building website for a click through of each of the main problems our lovely UK homes suffer with. You can click through as a slide show and then when you want to find out more, you click on the relevant link.

Or to make it a little easier, here are some of the top problems and how to solve them:-

1. Dry up any damp!
2. Dealing with damaged brickwork
3. Sort out rotten timbers

If you like the celebrity bit, visit Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen’s top tips! And if you fancy watching a few videos, visit the SPAB website.

Think you know everything there is to know about maintenance? Think again! Why not take the SPAB’s quiz. Kate took the quiz and got 95%, she’s not sure how as it’s 10 questions and three choices for each one (some very tongue in cheek). It doesn’t tell you which ones are wrong, but good fun anyway!
