Maintenance Week (19-26 November 2021) reminds anyone who cares for a property - regardless of its age, type or purpose - of the straightforward steps they can take to protect their building from winter weather.
The SPAB knows that carrying out simple, regular maintenance tasks will save money on expensive repairs further down the line, and allow us to live more sustainably. Buildings and construction make up 42% of the UK’s total carbon footprint. Keeping existing homes in good condition will significantly help in efforts to be ‘greener’.
We are offering free access to this popular online talk for the duration of Maintenance Week 2021. Register now to receive information on how to watch this presentation.
