ONE of the easiest ways to give your home a new look is to refresh the facade.
For exterior painting of brickwork, painters will charge anywhere from $15 to $45 per square metre, and timber surfaces will be slightly more than that to allow the for base coats and extra treatments that brickwork doesn’t need.
So the exterior of a single-level, average-sized home could be painted for just less than $5000.
Add a few pot plants and a fancy new welcome mat and your house will be looking as good as new.
If you’re selling your home, first impressions count.
