We offer expert advice on things a new home owner may not know

Check out what Blue Build’s Site Supervisor and Leading Hand Carpenter had to say:

“Some of the aspects a new home owner wouldn’t know are all the small, finer details that we put blood, sweat and tears into, not the large aspects that they always see first and I think that’s an important part of the industry” – Sean, Site Supervisor/Leading Hand Carpenter at Blue Build

Other Things New Home Owners May Not Know:

Check The Smoke Detectors

The National Fire Protection Association suggests placing smoke alarms in each bedroom, outside sleeping areas, and on every level of the home. If your new home lacks smoke detectors, install them immediately.

Aerate The Lawn

If the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence, it’s probably because your neighbours are remembering to aerate their lawn. Aeration involves puncturing the soil with small holes to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots.

Chimney Sweep

New homeowners have a lot on their minds and usually aren’t thinking much about fireplace maintenance. But even if you don’t plan to use your fireplace regularly, you still need to hire a chimney sweep to get the stack, smoke ducts, flue pipes, and the rest of the structure in order.

Label The Electrical Box

When you move into a new home, it’s important to spend time labelling all the breakers in your electrical box. The first time the power goes out or an emergency situation arises, you’ll be glad you did this.
