Tips to keep your hands handy…

Often times, we think that doing work around the house is going to be easy and will save us a lot in costs we deem “unnecessary”. This could be true if you have an idea of what you are doing. For the times you don’t, you should consult professional contractors. At the end of the day, your home is one of the most prized possessions in life.

Be it painting, building, paving, plumbing or electrical, it is good to have a contingency plan when you are unable to get quality handymen when you need to.

Want to try your hand at painting?

When we want to paint our homes, we envisage beautiful colours. This is important as colour makes the space functional and helps it come to life. However we forget the most important part of painting and that is the preparation of the wall. Ensure the wall has primer, as this allows a good surface to paint on and it also brings out the true colour of the paint.

Another aspect of painting your home is to consider the weather. On a hot day, the chances are that there will be humidity and moisture in the air will keep water-based paint from drying properly. Try not to do the paint projects at home in the afternoon when it is humid, or your walls are not going to come out right and you will have the frustration of doing them over or leaving them looking shoddy.

If this seems to overwhelm you, thankfully there are skilled teams of handymen who are able to do this type of work at affordable rates while ensuring quality workmanship. Contact a professional near your area to advise you on how best to move forward with home improvements.

Easy solutions to all your home repair requirements

To anyone who is not a home owner, home repair sounds like a simple and easy, par-for-the-course requirement. To those of us that do own property, however, home repair is a term linked with headaches, financial burdens and never ending hours of DIY.

The phrase ‘home repair’ is unlimited and incorporates a variety of factors from painting to plumbing. Correct execution of home repair requires time and understanding as the problem must first be identified before action can be taken and in today’s era of built-in obsolescence, a lack of expertise can only mean further problems.

Investing in a home is a lifelong commitment and home repair is an essential part of maintaining the look and value of that investment, but often we find ourselves either lacking the expertise or the finances to keep our home repairs in check. Investing in the services of a qualified handyman may sound like an expensive solution, but when you invest in the right handyman, affordability does not necessarily mean sacrificing quality.

Why you need to start your home repair jobs now to get ready for winter!

Winter is on its way and it’s very important that your home repairs are done before the chilly weather sets in – else you’ll be suffering with frostbitten toes while everyone else is cosy and warm!

As our homes age, they are affected by changes in the weather more and more – and the change from hot, humid summers in Gauteng where wood swells and damp rises to the dry, chilly winters where wood dries out and cracks appear everywhere can leave your home looking older than it should be! This means that, in winter, when all the materials your home is made of start to contract in the cold, you can be left with increasing gaps near your windows and doors as well as a drafty roof – bringing winter indoors.

Many people only realise how drafty and cold their house is when the weather gets really bad – so that means that it is a very busy time for home repair companies who may not be able to get out to you as soon as you’d like them to. The best option is to simply call us out before the bad weather sets in. We can have a look at your home from top to bottom, inspecting everything from your electrical systems and plumbing to the state of your roof, walls and windows. We’ll be able to give you a highly competitive quote and start on the job as soon as you’d like – ensuring that your home is weather proof and draft-free well in time for winter.

Contact us today at Showroom Condition for a quote on our affordable home repair services and don’t get left out in the cold this winter!

Don’t avoid it – home repair is necessary and won’t go away!

Many South African homeowners make the mistake of avoiding home repairs in the hope that it won’t get any worse or will just be okay eventually. The problem with this approach is that whatever the problem is, be it a blocked drain, broken cupboard hinges or a sagging roof, it is only set to get a lot worse. Avoidance and ignorance in this regard is no winning strategy.

By keeping up with house maintenance and acting on these types of little maintenance issues as they come up, you will effectively avoid having to pay for major repairs at a later stage. Any property requires maintenance throughout the year. Different seasons of the year come with different challenges – the wet, rainy months or the cold winter winds all pose their own challenges to the maintenance of your home.

A professional house repair service will help you to keep on top of all the maintenance of your home. Monthly maintenance contracts are perfect if you are looking to control the costs of your home repairs and if you’re looking for peace of mind. These professionals are experienced in providing a great service at an affordable cost and will keep your property in top shape throughout the year.

You will also be able to rest assured knowing that all the little and major maintenance issues will be seen to by a seasoned maintenance professional. These professionals are seasoned at using the very latest technology and equipment to perform leak detection, unblock drains, do water damage repair and help you avoid many other possible nightmare scenarios.

Count on professionals for your home repairs in Gauteng

It can be tempting to try and fix home repairs by yourself. Doing it yourself might end up costing you a lot of money and you could end up making an even bigger mess than you began with! So instead of spending your weekends in a queue at the hardware store, trust a professional to get the job done.  

If you’ve ever owned a home then you know there are an endless number of home repairs that can pop up at any time. It’s important to take care of these issues as soon as you can, because the longer you ignore them, the bigger the problem can become. What might seem like a tiny problem can actually turn out to be a big disaster!

Typical home repairs you will deal with when you own a home are:

  • Painting – both indoor and outdoor
  • Waterproofing services
  • Plumbing services
  • Electrical services
  • General handyman services such as repairing cracked floors

There are a lot of home repair businesses out there, so how do you know which one is the best for you? Start by asking friends and family if they have any recommendations – word of mouth is a reliable way to find a business you can trust to do a good job.

If you find a company you like, ask them for client referrals and speak to people who have used that company in the past. When you talk to a company’s former or current clients, you can find out a lot of information about the company: how satisfied the client was with the job, the time it took to complete the job, and other things you are interested in knowing.
