The typical British weather has been hard at work again and we’ve had everything from stunningly bright sunshine, to snow and ice! But through all this meteorological mayhem, the great British spirit trudges on through, determined to get our homes spruced up and ready for the rest of the year. So what handyman jobs should you be looking at getting done this Spring (yes, it may not feel like it but it really is almost Springtime!)…
Nothing and no one can dictate how you want your home to look, in fact the current trends for handyman work encompass both interior and exterior work as well as general property maintenance. Inside your home, the most dramatic way to get an instant makeover is to decorate; paint those tired old walls, give that skirting board a fresh coat of gloss and pay attention to those hard-working doors. Small repairs such as cracks and holes can often bring the appearance of a room right down so make sure you get those seem to before they get any worse and think about adding some colour to your home. Maybe vibrant citrus colours aren’t your thing but even a hint of colour can add warmth and personality to your rooms, making it feel like an entirely different house!
Of course there is no reason why you can’t pay exactly the same attention to the exterior of your property. Decking, patios, driveways and pathways can suffer badly in the winter months, with a build-up of unsightly dirt and grime which makes your garden look dull and lifeless as well as slippery and dangerous. Pressure washing/Jet washing is the answer to this, enabling that nasty surface layer to be cleaned and removed, leaving behind a lovely fresh surface to give your garden a boost. Many people are stunned at how their old patios and driveways, suddenly look bright and fresh again, giving the appearance of a brand new surface, at a very reasonable price.
Painting and decorating is another area where the outside of your property is also often overlooked. Just as the walls inside your house suffer the strains of everyday life, so do the walls outside…in fact even more so. There is such a huge range of exterior paints and stains available nowadays that the your imagination really is your only limit, allowing you to turn those sheds, fences, decking and exterior walls into an attractive and welcoming feature. Never underestimate the importance of doing this as it really will allow your outdoor living experience to be a much more enjoyable one..and let’s face it, we have to enjoy the nice weather on the few occasions that we are lucky enough to get it, so the sooner those handyman jobs are tackled, the sooner you can get out there!
But maybe your decking, fencing and patios are in need of a little bit more than just a freshen up. Over time, the elements take their effect and you might find that you’d like to start over again with a new design or replacement garden surface. To enable you to really get the most of your garden, ask yourself the question, what do YOU want from it? As obvious as that may sound, people often fail to recognise their own needs in outside living and so are unhappy with their choices in the long-term. Do you enjoy gardening and garden maintenance? do you love entertaining? or do you prefer to stay indoors and look out? maybe you hate getting your hands dirty and would like to just see a nice, clean usable surface? whatever your needs HoneyDo’s Handyman Service can help you. We can discuss your own personal needs with you and make a decision that will last you for many years to come!
