The home looks ready for a knock down/rebuild ,however the owners could not afford that option! They had seen the 2 homes across the street, Peter had renovated 25 years prior.
The foundations and piers were renewed were necessary.The walls straightened, Australian made Palliside cladding, with a 25 year warranty fitted. New windows and doors were configured and installed, note the windows have an external architrave, which takes away that caravan window look, as well as laminated glass for security and insulation, new timber reveals and architraves inside, security locks that are key to lock, fly screens and stainless steel crim safe screens to the sliding doors. The eaves were renewed with Icon eave sheet which looks like painted timber and never needs to be painted. New colorbond gutters, facias, barges and downpipes were fitted.The rusted out iron roof was stripped and a new, insulated colorbond roof was installed on new battens. A deck and colorbond patio was constructed at the rear and a colorbond awning with an attached carport to the front of the home, finally the garage received the same facelift. The home is like new again at a fraction of the price of a rebuild, Peter’s price is a fixed price, no extra costs, the price you are quoted is the price you pay!
You guess the increased value to the property, $200K, $300K, $400K ! And the bonus of all Australian materials and no more painting, ever!
