The Foundations Start At The Top…

Issue 18

Building a house, or anything at all needs a solid foundation - but as winter submerges us, that foundation may be threatened by incoming bad weather.

Snow, sleet and hail, and of course the good old British rain all threaten to lead to leaks, a cold home and rising heating bills when trying to keep your conservatory heated during the cold snap.

After the hottest summer in recent history, many predict 2016’s winter months are lining up to be some of the coldest, after a couple of milder winter seasons in the last few years with news outputs already reporting that snow is settling.

But when it comes to your home in the bleakest of winters the foundations are flipped if water gets into your conservatory due to leaks, then the whole house may be compromised.

So how do you deal with the inclement weather playing havoc with your conservatory, extension or orangery? Tear it down and rebuild it? Or you could do the sensible thing and just improve what you already have.

While you might think carrying out work on your home during the winter is a fruitless task which will leave your home more open to the elements, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Of all the improvements we carry out here at Tyneside Home Improvements, one of the most popular is a Supalite Roof installation. It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular choice; Completed in just four days, waterproof from the beginning and designed to match and complement your homes existing look, Supalite roofing really is the smart choice all year around.

However it’s not just Supalite roofing which is helping to winter-proof your home in these late months.
