As we are in the middle of summer we want to share with you our top 5 tips on how to prepare your home for the summer months and in particular, your sashes.
Here are our top 5 tips!
Make your windows sparkle
When preparing your home for summer, you should always think about cleaning the windows. The sun will be shining and if your windows are dirty you will see the marks! Why not give them a clean and let the light shine through.
Be sure to keep a clean cloth in your pocket to wipe the sponge and quickly clean up any soapy water that runs onto the woodwork. Use a separate clean rag to wipe the perimeter of the glass when you’re done.
Reduce over the top amounts of glare
The low sun can cause a big glare in many parts of your house! Even though it is important to keep the natural light coming in it is also important to keep that balance as you don’t want the light to be overbearing especially as the weather is warming up. Our shutter service offers a brilliant solution for this on our plantation shutters page.
You can find out more about this over on our sister website www.shutterwise.co.uk
Sort out those stiff sashes once and for all
As summer is upon us, we want your house to be prepared for the weather. Air flow is extremely important when the weather begins to get humid and one of the most common request we have is to fix stuff sashes. Stiff sashes are a regular issue but luckily easy enough for our experts to pop over and fix for you.

Refresh your paintwork
No matter how clean you keep it, paint colour unfortunately does fade over time. Make sure you give it a summer uplift for your room or the outside of the house to feel fresh again. There’s nothing better than showing off a fresh new paint job on your sashes.
Take a look at our paint finishes page for more info.
Clean up the house
Whilst cleaning the inside of your house, don’t forget about the outside! The front of your house is the first thing someone see’s so why not keep it clean? After tidying it up, make it more summery with some flowers, plants and solar lights. We can’t stress how much these little touches compliment your sashes too.
