Regular inspections and repairs of your patio are recommended to ensure the safety of you and your family and friends. Winter brings fierce winds and heavy rain which can cause damage to structure and fittings. Remember to also inspect items that haven’t been used during the winter months such as a barbeque, patio blinds and any furniture under your patio.
