Houses have an annoying habit of requiring maintenance. Expensive maintenance.
So I summoned M. Altadill, who has already dealt with a nasty insect experience two years ago (but at least that time it was my builder who paid). He has a good reputation and is recommended by my builder.
I thought I had masonry bees and just needed some advice about what to do. So it came as a horrible surprise to be told this was capricornes again. Although one post is the main place, he found holes elsewhere.
So I am going to have to get Philippe, who is currently painting the railings on the back terrace, but turns his hand to anything I need, to sand down the wood and then Serge Atadill’s company, Rastop, will inject and blast the whole verandah.
Bye bye at least a thousand euros.
