Eskdale Rd, Auckland, NZ


This property originally had quite a ‘flat’, uninteresting looking exterior, so our advice to this client was to add depth to it by painting the block base only – they didn’t even need to paint the weatherboards to create this fresh, sharp look. We recommended a colour that was darker than the original colour but that would tie through well to the existing weatherboards. We also suggested within their Renovation Action Plan to paint the garage door and window sills, as well as some minor landscaping changes. A great result for just a few thousand dollars!
