You will see before photos, showing the sorry state of the roof, gables guttering, facias, downpipes and eaves. I renovated the terracotta tiled roof, replacing any broken tiles, cleaning, chemically killing the lichen spores and repointing.
We reclad the gables in Palliside UPVC weatherboards which never needs painting, battening them out to cover the old barge boards that were full of dry rot which was cut out before cladding. Dry rot is a fungus that develops when the moisture content of timber reaches 28-30%, stop the moisture you stop the dry rot.
This house had previously been brick veneered an as a result the eaves are uneven and had to be straightened. We installed Icon UPVC eave sheet which never needs painting to line the soffits (eaves).
Colorbond guttering, facia boards and downpipes were installed.
Because of the height of the gables, eaves etc.every time painting was required (every 6 years or so because the home is 200m from the ocean and the salt spray).
Scaffolding and insulating power lines was required by Work Cover at a cost of about $4500. Plus the cost of painting and repairing of timber effected by dry rot!
