1. 
Pressure Washing the House


This is the fastest and most effective way to get a “quick” clean house. Pressure washes, apart from cleaning out dust and debris, also remove algae. Algae are the mould that might cause other complications in your house. Pressure washing is relatively simple and can be done with or without professional contractors. But a word of caution, pressure washers require some level of expertise as inexperienced washers could cause other damages to the house.


      2.  Simple Landscaping

Landscaping, apart from making your house look spectacular, will also add monetary value to the property! The aesthetic appeal that landscaping lends to a house is sure to captivate buyers and guests as soon as they enter the property. Landscaping can vary from simple garden applications to flooring patterns and erecting structures. Depending on your time frame, we will help you design an ideal landscape and get you started with the remodel.

      3.  Replacing Electric and Plumbing Appliances

      Replacing damaged or broken appliances like door lamps, taps, etc. or installing new fixtures can add to the beauty of your house. If you’ve always had issues with that one noisy fan or that leaky tap, now would be a great time to fix it! Give us a call and we’ll take care of all the fixtures that need replacement!


      4. Exterior Painting

      Painting is a great way to make your house look impressive and updated! It increases the curb appeal and value. Painting can be done in a relatively short span of time. It can even be completed in a day!

    Hiring a contractor for this job would be very wise due to numerous reasons!

       ·  Contractors have more experience

       ·  Contractors have the necessary equipment to reach places that are high up. Their experience also ensures the safety of your family members and workers.
       
       ·  Large jobs can often be completed in a short period of time when handed over to contractors!

       5.  Pool Cleaning

      Pool cleaning is relatively simple and involves removing debris, analyzing the water content, installing or reinstalling filters, etc.  Once the pool is emptied out, you have the option of fixing broken tiles or adding electrical fixtures like lights to the pool! Depending on the time available and your requirements, a plan can be structured and realized in a short period.

These summer home improvements really improve the aesthetics of your house and can be done in a very short time!
