Autumn Home Maintenance Tips

Your home probably is showing some wear and tear after another long, hot Gold Coast summer. From staining sun battered decks to replacing damaged gutters, here are some handy autumn home maintenance tips from Gold Coast handymen.

Revive Your Timber 

With all the entertaining Gold Coasters do over the hot summer months, it’s no wonder that autumn is a good time to think about reviving your timber deck, patios, handrails and exterior wood surfaces.

As a general rule, timber should be stained about every two to three years. If you have painted wood surfaces, you should consider touch ups when there are visible signs of damage and organise a repaint anywhere from every 5 to 10 years. 

Keeping your timber stained or painted will increase the lifespan of your surfaces by protecting it from deterioration. Signs of deterioration can include discolouration, wood rot, soft spots, splitting and splintering.

Clean Up Your Hard Surfaces

Whether your pool areas are looking worse for wear or your car’s leaked oil all over your driveway, you can quickly and cost-effectively clean hard services with a high pressure clean. 

Our Gold Coast high pressure cleaning services are ideal for areas including driveways, pathways, brick or concrete walls, patios, decks, BBQ areas, tennis courts and even eaves, windows and screens. We can effectively clean away an array of issues including stains, grime, oil, mildew, mould and some types of graffiti. 

Repaint Your Exteriors

Summer can be brutal on your paintwork, with the harsh weather damaging or ageing your painted exteriors. Autumn is a great time to think about repainting your Gold Coast property, and our team are here to provide you with a quality finish at an affordable price. 

Do you need some expert advice on colour choices or paint brands? We can help with that, too. Revamping your property with a new exterior paint job can instantly increase the street appeal of your property, while keeping your home updated and well maintained.

Maintain Your Roof & Gutters

The Gold Coast has been hit with some severe storms over the summer period, with strong winds and heavy rain resulting in damage to roofs and gutters. Our Gold Coast handymen can help you maintain your roof and gutters with our expert repairs and repaints. 

If your place has been recently hit by a thunderstorm, make sure you visually inspect your gutters and roof for signs of storm damage. Make sure you also inspect your ceiling for any potential leaks or water damage.

Whether it’s a rusty, old gutter or missing roof tiles, our Gold Coast handymen can help you maintain your roof and gutters — and prevent further water damage.
