Coastal homes or beachfront properties have high property value caused by increasing demand due to amazing views and proximity to the beach. In Perth, coastal or beachfront properties can range from several hundred thousand dollars to a couple of million dollars especially when the property is brand new or aged but well taken cared of. But like the high demand for waterfront properties, there is also high demand for regular property maintenance and upkeep because of the natural circumstances the location is prone to. To keep the rate or increase the value of your property, maintenance and renovation are needed especially when you have plans of reselling in the future.
Extra upkeep and maintenance is needed for coastal properties because of environmental circumstances like beach erosion and wear and tear. If you are a new owner of a beachfront property or one on the coastal area, you need to do basic maintenance like general clean up or basic painting to sustain your property. Otherwise, you’ll need to hire professional builders or carpenters to undertake maintenance and renovation to safeguard your property especially if you wish to retain or upgrade its value. At Chartwell Construction, we offer building renovations, maintenance and home improvement services specific to coastal or beachfront properties like drywall replacement, window repair or replacement, repainting, deck repair, rood repair and more.
Drywall Replacement or Structural Wall Removal
Coastal or beachfront properties are more susceptible to environmental causes. But aside from that, small-scale damages also happen due to wind and water erosion. Whenever floods happen, or when the heavy wind brings salt rainwater from the ocean and hits your homes, salt water can damage your exterior walls and when left unattended, can also affect the interior of your home as well as the foundation of your whole property. At Chartwell Construction, we do drywall replacement as well as structural wall removals in Perth with specialisation in the safe removal of load bearing and non-load bearing walls.
Brick Work and Plastering
Since coastal and beachfront properties are more prone to environmental wear and tear, homes often experience ruin after heavy storms pass since harsh winds bring in salt water from the ocean. Whenever this happens, salty crystals can settle on your exterior walls and water can corrode the material causing it to degrade as the salt continues to build up after every ‘sea spray’. Aside from that, when your property is on the beach, as they say, ‘sand gets everywhere,’ and sand will get everywhere including the in-betweens of your cracked brick flooring. At Chartwell Construction, our brickwork and plastering services include retaining walls, limestone walls and boundary walls. We also do float and set as well as rendering and texture coats.
Door and Window Repair or Replacement
For coastal and beachfront properties, the exterior of the home is one that requires constant maintenance especially when it comes to window repairs or door replacements. Since windows and doors are key security features, having broken ones due to heavy winds and wear and tear caused by sea spray is not recommended. At Chartwell Construction, we supply and install lintels to form new openings for windows and doors of all sizes. We alter existing windows and door openings, but we also offer full window replacements.
Roof Carpentry and Installation
Exposure to high winds and heavy rains will make your roof more susceptible to damage and therefore require regular maintenance. The salt water air can corrode your roof’s metal trim as well as metal railings and furniture that are exposed outside your property. Corroded metal is not only dangerous to your health but it is also fatal especially when it risks the safety and the foundation of your properties. At Chartwell Construction, we do roof carpentry as well as installation of roof beams with lintels and load-bearing columns.
