Roof restoration
Lee from Foreverlast Roofing says “restoring a roof back to its original colour or going for something new will always refresh your home and add value. At Foreverlast roofing we only use the best materials that come with an industry best warranty. A word of caution, watch out for the “2 coats” deals. Nothing ever good comes from it.”

Landscaping
As people say, first impressions last and what do people first see when looking at your home, the front yard. Whether it be a professional landscaper with a complete overhaul or you spending some weekends tidying up it all helps. Some tips we have are simple, remove the weeds, add some quality mulch to the gardens and mow your lawns. If you are feeling a little more adventurous and want to do some digging, don’t forget to dial before you dig!

Painting
This is another one that can be done either by yourself or the professionals. Painting your house will always give it a new look feel. Stick to the classic colours that will cater to wider variety of buyers. We recommend using a professional for the outside, remember the landscaping, first impressions count!

Kitchen renovation
Gerard, our kitchen expert from
KitchenIslands.com.au said it doesn’t matter if it’s a full renovation or a partial addition. Adding a kitchen island can turn a house into a home. You would be surprised how much time is spent in the kitchen as a household, why not make it that special place.
