Welcome to my online home property and maintenance magazine website!
So you have your new home. Fantastic! Congratulations. Maybe you are a first time home owner, or you could have owned several homes leading up to this point.
You maybe own a second or holiday home, but whatever your circumstances, you are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of your home, and have been looking around on the internet for some ideas and inspiration on how to look after what is probably the biggest investment of your life.
The same is true for me. I have owned several houses in the past, and I now have a nice 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a large garden and garage. I know that there are several maintenance issues that I need to take care of, and I have been looking for some information to help me tackle the problems.
That is where this website comes into its own. I decided that with every issue that I encountered, and the solutions that I found, I would put the information into an online property maintenance magazine style website, so that I could maybe help somebody else that is struggling with similar issues.
There are a host of maintenance problems that you as a homeowner will face, some will be larger challenges that need the services of a professional, and others you will be a able to tackle after doing some online research.
Some other problems may well be a mix of the two, where you can call a professional company to do the heavy or complicated part of the work, and you can then come in behind and do the finishing touches that you are more comfortable with, and that also can save you some money.
If you are one of those people with more money than time, then by all means pay somebody to do the work, but if like me you have more time than money, you can do the research and some practice before taking care of the problem yourself.
So here we go, I hope you find this website useful. I will be updating it as I encounter problems with my property, but I will also cover some of the maintenance issues that I have dealt with in the past.
