Summer is right around the corner and the weather is warming up, so make the most of the longer and (hopefully) drier days by doing those jobs you’ve been putting off around your home. It’s also a great time to get creative and adventurous with paint and make a simple yet high-impact change to your space.
Maintenance is an essential part of keeping your property looking its best. It’s best to do DIY jobs regularly so you can stay on top of them. Outdoor areas take a particular beating during wet winters, so giving them a spruce up in November means that you’ll be able to enjoy hosting friends and having barbeques on a clean and clear deck or patio.
Here’s a list of great ideas and projects that you can try this November – even if you just get a couple of these projects done, you’ll have a head start on your summer DIY list!
Clean outdoor concrete surfaces
Slippery paths, driveways and patios are unpleasant to look at and unsafe to walk on. Luckily, they can all be treated with Resene Deep Clean. This product breaks down contaminants all by itself – once you’ve applied it, nature does the hard work – and used twice a year, it will keep your concrete and timber surfaces looking good.
Dilute the concentrate with the right amount of water, then spray or scrub it on. You can also use the quick application trigger pack to get the job done faster – just attach to your hose and start applying it. Once applied, leave it alone. It will start to turn a reddish rust colour and it will keep working all by itself in the natural elements.
