winter maintenance work

Are your premises ready for Winter?

With many office workers working from home, and with the Christmas break on its way, this is a great time to carry out minor repairs and maintenance work. At our repair service, Restoreo, we are a bit like BBC 1’s Repair Shop but we come to you to breathe new life into your damaged items.

When it comes to the exterior of your premises, it’s always a good idea to fix minor repairs before the arrival of the bad weather, as it is likely that wind, rain and freezing temperatures will aggravate scratches, dents and chips and turn them into bigger problems. It’s these bigger problems that may become more expensive and time consuming to fix. It’s always best to fix issues as soon as they arise rather than waiting for the problem to get bigger, when it’s more likely that you’ll need to replace rather than simply repair which is more cost effective, takes less time and is a more environmentally choice too…repair rather than replace.

Domestic or commercial – it can all be repaired

Doors and window frames – even UPVC can get damaged, but it is possible to repair minor scratches and chips increasing the lifespan of the material and avoiding having to replace the door or windows for longer. Choosing to repair will also be the cost effective and a faster solution too as there will be no measuring to do or waiting for custom parts to be made and delivered.

Sinks and baths – chips and scratches to ceramic sinks and baths can be repaired, providing less disruption and minimising the need to remove whole units which may cause even more damage to the surrounding area.  You’ll be amazed at the results that can be achieved.

Wood – whether it’s a worktop, floor, desk, door or bannisters, if it’s made of wood it will inevitably get chipped and scratched in time. Once again, the easy solution is a quick repair to stop the damage getting worse and minimise disruption that can’t be avoided when a whole area or item needs to be replaced.

Stone, granite, marble, quartz – damage to floors, worktops and exterior stonework not only spoils the look, it can also provide dirt with somewhere to hide making cleaning more difficult. When the damage is outside, you also run the risk of further deterioration because of frost and ice.

Bricks and sandstone – any damage to bricks and sandstone needs to be dealt with as soon as possible as the material is more likely to crumble and decay, especially on exterior surfaces. Colour matching is easy with our state of the art technology.

Paint – chipped paint doesn’t create a great first impression for clients or for your own properties curb appeal and it allows the elements to damage the wood or metal underneath.

We can Restoreo anything!

Our minor repairs services are carried out by specialist trained technicians from  Restoreo Repairs which is part of the Quills Group. With a combined 30 years of expertise,  Restoreo technicians have repaired a wide range of surfaces, such as wood, granite, stone, porcelain, ceramics, steel, glass and even UPVC, making them as good as new and increasing their lifespan.

When it comes to paint and respraying, technicians use laser colour matching to duplicate the original pigmentation, and will painstakingly paint the same surface patterns and designs to ensure the repair location blends in seamlessly with its surroundings.

Antimicrobial surfacing

This year, Restoreo has understandably been busy with antimicrobial surface coating services. Make sure that any minor repairs you carry out are completed with antimicrobial protection, especially in commercial, educational and healthcare premises. An antimicrobial surface coating will kill 99.9% of bacteria within 24 hours. It has also been shown to kill 99.8% of TGEV-Coronavirus within eight hours. As it will last a year even on high traffic areas such as door handles, it’s an essential part of keeping your premises COVID-secure, and the cleaning process is also reduced as aftercare is simply warm water with a microfibre cloth.

Please contact us to discuss any minor repairs you have in the workplace or home, or if you would like to enquire about antimicrobial surfacing coating for your premises.

Lifting spirits this Christmas

Whatever the government decides about what we are and aren’t allowed to do this Christmas, as far as we’re concerned, it’s definitely still on! In fact, it’s more important than ever to acknowledge the contribution of clients and the hard work of your staff as we come to the end of this extraordinarily difficult year.

As the effects of the pandemic drag on, the likelihood of everyone in your company being able to let your hair down at an office party is pretty much zero. Nor will you be able to take your favourite clients out for a slap-up lunch to thank them for their custom. So why not use the entertainment budget to send everyone a treat that will help boost morale, raise a smile, and make them feel appreciated.

This year we have a huge range of cards, gifts and hampers that you can brand and personalise, so you can bring some cheer in these challenging times.

Christmas cards

It’s time to organise the Christmas cards that your company will send out this year, and we have a lot for you to choose from. Whether you want fun cards with colourful cartoons, beautiful designs featuring traditional or modern winter scenes, or want to go upmarket with lots of gold, we can help.

Christmas gifts

When you go to the trouble of branding a gift, you want it to last. So what could be better than a Christmas-themed gift that the recipient will want to keep and use year after year. Whether it’s a happy reindeer mug, a festive candle holder, or a game of Christmas dominoes, your fun corporate gift is likely to come out of the cupboard every December, creating a lasting impression of your company.

We also offer gifts that will provide fun for all the family, such as tree decorations and drawstring bags that the kids (or big kids) can colour in and admire, as well as novelties like stress balls or comic headbands that will help get everyone in the festive mood.

And if you want beautiful gift bags to put your presents in, we can brand them too! Hopefully, the recipients will save and reuse the same bags, so you never know who will end up seeing your brand name!

If your staff are working from home, it’s likely they’ll be mindful of their heating bills, so why not send them a warm blanket so they can turn the heating down a notch but stay cosy as they work. Or they can enjoy simply snuggling up under it as they watch their favourite programmes during the long, dark winter evenings. Our Moose plush blanket even comes cuddled by a friendly reindeer, who’ll no doubt find a loving home with the kids!

Whether you have clients who are foodies or you just want to give people treats to share with the family over the holidays, we’ll create it for you. And there’s something to suit all budgets, from £22 upwards. We can fill your hampers with wine and cheese, savoury nibbles, sweet treats, cakes and puddings, Scottish-themed goodies or whatever you want. These beautifully presented hampers will be very much appreciated, and even if the contents don’t last long, the recipients will remember how delicious they were and be grateful that you thought so highly of them.  Lead times are 2-3 weeks so make sure you place your order by 2nd December.
