This is a checklist we recommend you do annually. For coastal areas and places where pollution is high we recommend four times per year.
- All joinery should be washed down a minimum of twice a year with a mild solution of soapy water and rinsed off with clean water to remove any surface debris.
- All hinges should oiled with grease or neutral oil.
- Weather seals should be checked and cleaned.
- Vents should be cleaned and any blockages removed.
Once clean, scrape, lightly sand and touch up any areas of wear and tear with a matching microporous paint or stain. Any bare wood should be primed first. Your paint should last in line with our guarantees with up to 10 years for white painted under normal conditions and if kept clean.
