This home was built in the 1940s .It has an old corrugated iron roof the front porch was falling down the guttering and downpipes needed replacing and the home was clad in asbestos/fibro. In short it needed a complete facelift and this was possible because the house was structurally sound.
We started with renewing the roof, the old corrugated iron was stripped and new hardwood battens were fitted to the roof trusses, a 50 mm foil insulation blanket was then fitted to the battens and then a new colorbond roof installed.
Colorbond gutter was installed over new colorbond facia cover and then the downpipes.
The fibro sheeting was encased in Palliside UPVC weatherboards,which can be used in bushfire regions as they have a nil ignition rate, and never need painting.
The eaves were lined in Icon eave sheeting which never needs painting and gives the appearance of V-jointed timber.
The windows were not changed on this home but we dressed them up with window hoods and also replace the old awning with a hipped bullnose verandah.
The home is ready for another 70-100 years.
