    Readying your house for blustery winds

    Published on 13 February 2019, Wednesday, 3:31 AM

    Golden leaves whipping past your house are a common occurrence come autumn, but sometimes you'll find massive fallen branches, dangerous teetering TV aerials and wobbly fences.

    The winds can begin to pick up as the season progresses, so now is a good time to get those little niggling outdoor tidy and repair jobs done.

    Trim down trees

    It may be a good idea to cut down the trees in your yard for two reasons - one, leaves can create quite the mess around your home and garden, and two, big hanging branches can pose a safety danger.

    Reach those high spots by hiring access equipment from your local Kennards Hire store, with a wide range of cherry pickers and scissor lifts to choose from.

    Secure TV aerials and satellite dishes

    Make sure to check that your aerials and satellite dishes are properly secured on your roof, as it could potentially be a hazard when the winds come and knock it over the edge.

    Again this is where access equipment may come in handy, with a genie lift able to get you in the right position to set the aerial or satellite in place.

    Nail down loose fencing

    Prevent family members from stepping on a nail in your yard by ensuring that your fence planks are all nailed in and secured.
