There is nothing more demoralising on a cold, wet and windy day than to get home and discover there is something wrong with the homestead. Maybe you discover a leak coming down from a gutter that has been undiscivered for ages. Perhaps the gutter is full of leaves and moss from the roof . . .. And then there are problems with boilers at this time of year. That pilot light that so often blows out and you don’t realise the heating hasn’t been on. When you live in a property yourself, it is generally easier to keep on top of these jobs and either get the ladder out yourself, or better still, get someone else’s ladder with them on it.
If you live off site then the only seriously feasible way to keep a property in good order is to engage the services of a professional maintenance and development company who will deal with matters as they arise – the fee will be well worth it.
