Autumn Plumbing & Gas Maintenance Ideas for Perth Homes

Autumn Plumbing & Gas Maintenance Ideas for Perth Homes

People often tend to do renovations and property maintenance before the holiday season starts during December and January. As we approach autumn, it’s an ideal time to address outdoor plumbing and roof cleaning & repairs. The end of summer is the perfect time to plan your home improvement project so that you can start around autumn, and finish before winter arrives.

Here at The Plumbing and Gas Guys, we offer 24/7 year-round plumbing, gas fitting and renovation services to all suburbs in Perth, Western Australia. Aside from emergency plumbing and gas fitting services that can pop-up any day and time of the year, we recommend to customers autumn as an ideal time to do home maintenance and renovations for their Perth homes

tree root cutting

Go for tree root cutting services to fix blocked sewer pipes and drains.

Tree roots as small as thin hair fibres can enter pipes and cause blockage when they accumulate. Solid things that pass through your drain can also be trapped further causing blockage to your pipers. Call a licensed, professional plumber to assess your sewer lines, especially if you feel that your waste pipes start to drain slowly or give off an unpleasant odour.

Clean blocked roof gutters. 

It’s essential to clean your gutters every so often to remove falling debris such as leaves, tree roots, sand that accumulate and block your roof pipes and drainage. Roof plumbing, cleaning and repair are best done during spring and autumn.

Energy-Efficient Hot Water Systems

Install new hot water systems. 

Hot water system installations, especially placing a big tank outside or adding solar panels (for solar hot water systems) on the roof is best done after cleaning, and repairs to the roof are done to make sure that there’s good support for the system to be installed on.  


Make sure that your hot water system is running well.  

To prepare for the colder weather ahead, it’s best to have your hot water system checked and repaired during the autumn months.

Why You Need a Bathroom Renovation

Why You Need a Bathroom Renovation

Home improvement projects add value to your home. According to a home advisor, one of the most common updates people are inspired to do in houses is a bathroom renovation.

Bathroom Renovations

Remodeling a bathroom is essential if you want its style to better adapt your current needs. It doesn’t always have to be about aesthetics but about practicality and functionality as well.  You visit the bathroom multiple times a day which makes it a wise decision to make improvements that best suits your needs in that area. Here are some of other suggestions you might want to consider when renovating your bathroom.

Laundry Renovation

It’s safe to say that we give the least attention to our laundry spaces, but there are plenty laundry room ideas that organise, add value, and upgrade your space. While it is uncommon to use the bathroom as a laundry area in most homes, it is worth mentioning that if you have a bathroom with bigger space as in older period style homes, it’s best to utilise that area with a functional yet stylish overhaul. Your bathroom laundry area deserves a make-over, too!

Washing Machine Installation

If you would like to save time and money in the long run, skip the trip to the laundromat, have a washing machine installed. Proper installation is vitally importance because the last thing you need is a minor water leak or drain leak working its way into the infrastructure leading to huge unexpected costs in the future.

New Toilet Installation

Have your tank and toilet bowl inspected. These are normally only replaced when they already have cracks. The handle, flappers, trip levers, fill valves, fittings, and plumbing connections have an average lifespan of 4-5 years. So, these too, should be taken care of and inspected. New toilet with an improved water system could also mean lesser water consumption.

While there are tasks you can do on your own, it is always better to get professional assistance in revamping your bathroom especially for complicated fixes. We can assist with all renovation needs and specialise in bathroom renovations. Call a professional and licensed renovator on 1800 087 244 and get the bathroom upgrade you have always planned about! We have 24/7 customer service personnel that can help set up appointments and send our available trusted plumber as soon as possible.
