5 Cornish companies who can help with home improvements

Published at 7:05am 23rd April 2020.

As we find ourselves in lockdown, it can be a good time to look at doing a bit of DIY.

While possibly not considered "essential" it could be seen as a source of helping with mental health.

Being able to get into the garden to put up a new fence, sort out the plants, or perhaps taking a brush and paint to the dining room are just a few things that could be done to make getting through each day a little easier.

Perhaps getting an additional TV or laptop would keep the family from arguing who is watching what and when.

You might even look into heating options for when the summer period is over.

Whatever you feel needs addressing at home, below is a selection of businesses that may be able to help.

Charlestown Woodburners

Charlestown Woodburners

Having a new or replacement burner in place for when the summer season is over is worth looking at in the next few months.

Charlestown Woodburners say solid fuels are 40-50% more efficient than an open fire with the ability to control the rate of burn and heat output to the room.

Approximately 70% of the heat from an open fire will escape up the chimney compared to three-quarters of the heat entering the room with a stove, therefore, being more economical and money saving, they say.

As per government guidelines they will be closed for a short time, but they can still do quotes if you email or message them with pictures and any ideas of your requirements.

In case of any emergency call Geoff on 07703792152 or ring the shop on 01726 66412 which is diverted to his mobile.
