After Spring has sprung and with Summer fast approaching, this often brings the inspiration to refresh your home. Here are some simple tips to help you without breaking the bank and offer some inspiration.

  1. Declutter

When you de-clutter your home you remove any distractions to your interior and give the illusion of more space and light. Ask yourself if you really need everything out in the kitchen or all of your products in the bathroom next to the sink. If you are short on space use shelves instead of cupboards to keep your things looking organised and creating a feature instead of clutter. Be strict with yourself and donate or sell items that serve no purpose.

2. Maximise space

There are a few tricks of the trade to help maximise the space you already have or how to make your conservatory feel like another room that flows with the rest of your house. An Equinox roof is a light-weight solid roof is that is ideal for modernising an existing conservatory and helps to define a clear, large space. These roofs can be supplies with gorgeous spot lighting and roof lanterns to keep the light flooding in.

A bonus with Equniox roofing is that it stays cooler during the summer and retains heat during the winter – perfect for all year round enjoyment.
Another tip is to define areas by activity – clearly separate seating and dining areas, little nooks or comfy corners. Adding feature walls or rugs and carpet can help with this effect. Your space will feel warm, purposeful & well arranged, giving the illusion of more space.

3. Don’t forget to clean the exterior

The outside of your home can accumulate dirt and debris over the course of the winter. To minimise cleaning there are a few preventative steps that you can take. New PVCu windows don’t get misty or gather condensation like old or wooden windows do. Not only do dry clean windows prevent damp but they also help to prevent the accumulation of dirt.

When it comes to guttering you can add a bristly brush (often known as a hedgehog gutter guard) to prevent debris clogging them up, thus eradicating the need to deep clean so often – hurrah!
For more information on cleaning guttering check out our step by step guide here!

PVCu windows and doors can be gently cleaned using a soft cloth and specialist PVCu cleaner. Its a good idea to seek advice from your window supplier as they will be able to recommend you the best cleaning products for their materials.

4. Let the light in

Roof lanterns are a perfect way to make use of otherwise wasted roof space. Roof lanterns serve as a cost-effective alternative to aluminium skylights or conservatory roof systems. They are contemporary PVC-U system designed specifically to add height, volume and natural light to uninspiring flat-roofed rooms. They have excellent energy efficiency and increase the height of your room whilst flooding it with light, creating an illusion of added space.

Light coloured curtains made of a thinner material can help to add to the illusion of light as can adding plants and bright coloured room accessories.

The first impression of your house is your entrance door. It’s the first thing you see when you get home from work and it’s the first thing your guests see.

We all want to be proud of our homes, and this starts on how it looks from the outside. If you know your entrance door isn’t working or looking as it once did, maybe you should start considering replacing it, and at PBS we might be able to help you out!

How to tell if your door needs replacing…

It may not be necessary for you to replace your front door, unless you are looking to change your home style, but we can help you with some signs that may point out that your door  is not functioning correctly:

Opening and closing

One of the most effective and easiest way homeowners can tell whether or not their current entrance door needs replacing is by how it opens and closes.

Do you have any large gaps between the frame and the door? Is it an effort to close it? Does the door sash stick when pushed? Some of these problems can be solved, sticking is due to a larger problem,warping.

Old entrance doors are prone to warping, it means that when they are exposed to extreme weather conditions or are being constantly used, they have the potential to expand. Which eventually will cause gaps between the door and its threshold. Modern doors from PBS use PVCu that doesn’t have these attributes, granting that the new door will have a longer lifespan and will be highly functional.

Weathered and peeling

If your current door is cracked, peeling or weathered it may actually need a bit more than just a brush of paint. Your door is susceptible to harsh weather elements on a daily basis, as it’s exposed to cold, heat, sun, rain and wind. Every old entrance wooden door will eventually need to be replaced.  If you think yours can’t be repaired or fixed, you should start looking for options to replace it with one of our PVCu or composite doors.

Are you feeling draughts in  your home?

If you aren’t planning in renovating your home but you feel a draught or you are suddenly feeling regular cold spots in your home, replacing your old door with a new one may be a solution. The threshold, frame and door jamb contribute with the functionality of your front door, and these can also become faulty overtime.

Cladding refers to the external layer of the building which provides the aesthetic effect. Apart from the external appearance of the building, the main use is to protect the building structure from the weather and helps with the property insulation. Traditionally timber cladding was the way to go, but nowadays, the availability of PVCu materials is taking over, as it offers low maintenance material and an interesting alternative to timber.

External cladding planks should be installed horizontally so that rain flows down the face of the wall, placing the planks vertically will possibly increase the amount of moisture penetration as water will flow down and through the joints. There should be at least a 25mm (1 inch) gap to ensure that there is air circulation  to avoid that moisture getting trapped between the cladding and the wall. This should be taken in consideration when insulation is needed, as the majority of insulation materials will need to go behind the vapour barrier membrane.

PVCu Cladding offers similar  appearance to timber products but is generally thinner as PVCu can be easily moulded. PVCu is easier to work than timber because planks are identical, you will not find the knots or twists that you can get in timber. In general, PVCu is very easy to maintain, as a good wash every now and then will keep it looking fresh for years.

At PBS we offer different types of PVCu Cladding:

Ship-lap

p-27268-5947

Ship-lap is moulded PVCu with a shaped front face. The profile of the shiplap cladding is placed so that the bottom edge of each plank, overlaps the top edge of the plank below, which causes any rain to run down the front face of the wall without finding its way behind the planks. At PBS we offer a 15omm Shiplap Cladding in various colours such as: white, blackgrain, mahogany, rosewood and golden oak

Open V

5882

100mm Open ‘V’ tongue and groove cladding can be used to create a variety of visually appealing effects in horizontal, diagonal or vertical arrangements. Having the groove fitted over the tongue of the plank below keeps the rain from entering the wall. Fixing through the tongue conceals the fixings.  At PBS we offer 100mm Open ‘V’ tongue and groove cladding in different colours like: white, golden oak, blackgrain, rosewood and mahogany 

 

At PBS we offer different types of Cladding so they adapt in the best possible way to your needs.
