Day light saving started 2 weeks ago and now it’s a good time to do a twice yearly maintenance check on your windows.
Go around and open and close all your windows. Open them fully to the stops and make sure they move freely and seal completely at the top and bottom. If they are stiff, a spray with any spray lube (except the red CRC) on all the pivot joints will help.
Note- if your windows are very stiff don’t force them or you could break them.
Any questions, send us a message!
Have a great day!

I hope everyone is aware that today the Auckland Council has begun the total destruction of the Western Springs Forest by clear felling everything. This includes the regenerating native plants understorey. They started by cutting the surrounding native trees on the outskirts to put in a approximately 5 metre road across the whole site. The contractors will be back on Monday. Please go and see for yourself what is happening and if you don’t like what you see make your protest known.
To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.
The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.
But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.
The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
