Now is your chance to put things right. So, here are 3 quick tips

Quick Tip #1
One thing you can do to make your house look its best - is to have
it “power-washed.” That won’t cost a lot and should be well worth the money spent.
Water-blast the footpaths and driveway to get rid of
moss/mould/lichen and a discoloured look. Using a water-blaster can be very satisfying, as you will
see instant results! (just be careful not to damage paintwork etc.)
Quick Tip #2
Strategically place some planter pots by the front door and on the
deck (if you have one).

dramatic improvement you can make to any room. If you do nothing else, at least consider a paint
touch-up. In many instances you’ll get more than your investment back.
