Our partners, MAP Property Surveyors, have compiled 10 Top Tips on how to minimize the damage to your property during a winter spell and thus save you time and money.
On a regular basis clean out your gutters removing any leaves and debris in order that any ice, melting snow or rain can flow freely.
Make sure downpipes are in good repair. This will aid with the correct flow of rainwater.
To avoid burst pipes insulate any exterior pipes with insulation sleeves.
Fix any small cracks in masonry. This will keep water from getting in between the bricks, expanding as it freezes and causing larger cracks.
