‘Running in’ Your New Home

Looking After Your New Home

Please take some time to read the booklet “Looking After Your New Home” which is in your handover box.  It has lots of useful information to help you care for your home.

Allow your house to breathe

Keep trickle vents open at all times, set your heating at between 18-21° as this will prevent excessive cracks and shrinkage

Always use extractor fans in kitchens when cooking, bathrooms and ensuites when bathing & showering


We recommend that you do not wallpaper for at least 2 years, and any painting should be with a breathable water-based paint.  Details of the paints used can be found in your handover box
