The angle of the sun changes dramatically from summer to winter. To maximise the warmth you get from large windows in winter while restricting exposure to the high summer sun, large windows should be placed north facing in your home.
Being hard to access and not necessarily in your line of site each day, many people can fail to see any damage or problems with gutters and roofs. If you miss the signs of roof damage in its early stages, there could be a costly repair or full replacement needed in the future a costly option that could possibly be avoided by regular inspections and a little maintenance. Taking a few smaller steps around your home now can help you save a considerable amount of money in the future. A damaged roof can lead to severe water damage, electrical shortages, and reduced insulation effectiveness and in the end it will destroy your home. Taking steps to maintain and repair your existing roof rather than a full roof replacement in the future is a more cost effective option and will provide protection for your family for many years to come.Gutters and downpipes are vital to protect your home from potential long term water damage by directing rain water away from your home’s foundations, where the continually damp and moist conditions could cause structural issues down the track. Allowing them to build up with debris and garden waste can potentially lead to extensive damage and rust. If you’re concerned about the condition or your roof or guttering system, Young & Bracey can restore and repair your existing roof or gutters. We work on all types of roofs, but specialise in Colorbond Roofs, and can provide matching gutters, downpipes and windows to create a uniformed look.
Replacing your existing windows with larger windows to bring more natural light into your home can have a range of benefits both from a wellbeing standpoint and in terms of general quality of living.
