As the sun finally begins to shine and the seemingly never ending winter draws to a close it can feel a strange time to be talking about preparing your home for next winter. Over the cold and wet months it isn’t always the most suitable time to carry out essential exterior works. You may have encountered serious issues this winter which have only become evident due to the intense cold and rain. Carrying out work in the summer whilst the weather is suitable is the best time to ready yourself for next winter and here at Bonita Group we are rearing up for another busy season of work on property exteriors to ensure you and your property remain safe.

Exterior Painting

Painting the exterior of a building is best done in dry weather with moderate temperatures. Rain or extreme heat can affect the paint’s application and drying process with many manufacturers requiring 24 hours of drying time between coats. Bonita Group has encountered many properties that have unfortunately got themselves into a situation whereby they have serious leaks that could have been resolved by a few simple coats of paint. Some materials are highly porous and act like a sponge, holding onto quite substantial levels of water, upon a sudden downpour this car quickly cause the material to reach saturation point and allow water into the property. Best to act in the warmer and drier months and tackle painting issues before they become a costly and unresolvable issue.
