Best things to do to improve your home on a sunny day

The weather in the UK has been great recently. It is times like these when we like to enjoy barbecues and visits to the park. It is also an ideal opportunity to get your home looking better. Here are some of the most effective ways to make good use of the good weather:

Clean your paving:

Break out that pressure washer and get blasting away! One of the first things people notice when they visit your home is the driveway. Pressure washing it will remove dirt and often bring it up like new.

Of course we all want to sit on the patio when it is a sunny day, so give that a good clean too.

Clean your roof:

Cleaning your roof is another great way to make a massive difference to the appearance of your home. This one is a little trickier because of the safety precautions needed. I opted to hire a specialist in for this a couple of months ago and the result is amazing. The company I used can be found at roof cleaning Cheshire for anyone in the area (they also do paving repairs).

If you are going to attempt to clean your roof then you will need to read up on the best methods. I recommend this page as a starting point. Remember that safety comes first so this isn’t a job you can cut corners on. It is certainly worth adding a treatment to protect the tiles in future.

Take a video to enjoy in the winter:

I got this idea from this site who make amazing videos from everyday scenes. You will need a good video camera or camcorder for this. All you need to do is find a good spot, lay the camera down (make sure it is level!), then record for a while. You can then save the videos and set them to repeat on your media player. I’ve made 3 so far and will surely appreciate them on my TV come winter time.
