Plumbing maintenance involves running your fingers around pipe joints and feeling for weeping leaks that can occur due to expansion and contraction from temperature changes.
A burst pipe can cause damage into thousands of dollars and can cause dampness encouraging mould growth and unhealthy living conditions.
Twice a year check all pipes for leaks and keep an eye on plasterboard for discolouration as this is often the first sign of a leak.
When renovating it’s important to have your plumber asses the works prior to starting. If new pipework needs to be run through the wall, it’s important to know the implications from the beginning as costs can accumulate quite quickly.
Unless you are renovating, electrical maintenance involves very little - simply replace a bulb from time to time and ensure you review your usage and lower your carbon footprint for future generations.
It is really important to check your electrician’s license and make sure all work carried out meets Australian standards.
For all your plumbing and electrical needs, whether home maintenance or renovation, HY’s have a skilled and efficient team available.

Plan your budget & goals carefully.
It’s so easy to overspend or rush into jobs which will cost you further down the track. Generally it’s a good idea to factor in an extra 10% contingency budget. And think about what is worth paying a little bit more for now which can help to reduce bills and make things more comfortable while you are living there.
