Are we heading into Autumn, or is this what they call an Indian Summer? Who knows! What we do know is that, for many, a sigh of relief was breathed as the children were herded back to school and a level of normality has settled upon us as routine returns to our lives!

Now is also the time to get any maintenance jobs out of the way…
Check your decking for any signs of damage or decay, whilst also giving it a pre-winter clean and perhaps a coat of oil. If any of your decking boards are looking less than safe, then take the time now to replace them, before the damaging winter weather kicks in.
Give your shed the once over, ensure that it is ready to face another British winter without letting in the rain / snow. If you don’t repair the damage now, then somewhere down the line you face the challenge of not only repairing the shed, but also potentially the contents if water has found it’s way in and got amongst your lawnmower, sun beds, tools and all the other items we often cram in our outdoor space. You can find a full range of shed building / repairing materials here.
Make sure your car port or lean to is secure and also free from leaks. There’s nothing worse than trying to unload your car whilst a steady stream of rain water drips down on you! Corrugated PVC roof sheets can be found here.
