Maintenance | Lockwood Homes


Click here to download our free maintenance guide for homes built prior to 1990.

Lockwood has been building solid timber homes in New Zealand and around the world since 1951 with the principal construction method remaining the same; our patented aluminium profiles locking tongue and groove boards together to create durable, strong, low maintenance homes. While the basis of our proven construction system has stayed, many improvements have also been made to make Lockwood homes what they are today: warm, quiet and modern, while maintaining the natural strength and durability our homes are famous for.

As with all older houses, there comes a time when you will want to modernise the look and feel of your home. Click the links below to find out more information and inspiration on maintenance, painting or retro-blonding your Lockwood home or download our Maintenance Guide
