Fencing Repairs or a New Fence

Spring is an ideal time to assess the condition of your fencing and address any needed repairs or replacements. Check for loose or damaged panels, posts or rails, and repair them as necessary. If your fence is beyond repair or outdated, consider investing in a new one.

Repair Felt Roofs

Inspect the felt roof of your shed for signs of wear and tear, such as tears, cracks, or lifting edges. Repair any damaged areas promptly to prolong the lifespan of your shed.

Check and Repair Pointing

With the weather warming up and the days becoming longer, conditions are ideal for checking the pointing of your house and identifying any damage incurred during the harsh winter months. If you need to use scaffolding it is a good idea to invest in proper training such as the PASMA courses at https://globalflt.com/services/pasma-courses.

Painting and Treating Wooden Structures

Spring is a great time to refresh the appearance of your wooden shed or fence by painting or staining it. Apply a high-quality exterior paint or stain to protect the wood from moisture, UV damage and rot.
