    hi everyone,

    Just want to share some before and after pics of my house rendered. Also removed brick arch in front entry and made it a square opening.

    Looks great mate, well done.

    Didn't consider doing something with the roof tiles?

    Yes I am doing the roof the same colour as the garage door. The gutters will be the same colour as door to and the fascia will be colourbond dune colour.

    The roof will be done soon.

    Nice work! Did you do any of the work? What's the cost for render and roof? Colourbond?

    I knocked out the old double garage tilt doors and put in a steel t-bar and brickwork, I also knocked out the brick arch and brick up the new beam level.

    I got someone to install the garage door and also got someone to do the render.

    -Garage door $1300 installed with motor
    -Render $6300 for 185m2 using acrylic render with the paint colour of our choice in the render so we don't have to paint it, also includes meshing of the whole house.
    -The roof will just be painted and it costs $2500 with a 10year warranty. It includes pulling up the solar on the roof for our heated pool, clean the roof, paint roof 2 coats and repoint all ridge cappings.
    -Fascia cover, gutters and downpipes will cost me about $1200 and I am installing them myself.

    I also painted all the aluminium windows. They were mission brown.

    Looks good, is it difficult to render yourself?

    Thanks. Yes there is an art to it. I have rendered a wall at my house in my entertaining area but I thought a whole house would be to big of a job to do on my own with not much experience rendering, and also for that price I think was definitely worth the money.

    Good stuff Brian, love your work but as you probably know previously I went with the paint instead of the rendering path.

    Thanks. What do you mean, did you just paint the bricks instead of render?

    Ahh ok, now I know what you mean. That is bagged and then painted, or it is some thick paint. Looks good either way.

    I think there's a type of paint that looks rendered when painted. I used it on a retaining wall on my former PPOR.
