Garage Door Colour Update Challenge Solved By Our Tradies

A simple colour update for her garage doors was all that one homeowner wanted. But it proved a little easier said than done until a “can do” tradie was found... The Job Paulette wanted to update the colour of her metal garage doors from what she called a “bland new denim blue” to a more striking ebony black. The Challenge Paulette contacted the garage door company to find out if, and how, the colour could be changed. They came back with two options; replacing the doors entirely at great expense; or powder coating at a cost not much less than new doors, and required them being taken away for two to three weeks. The Solution Not satisfied with these options, Paulette turned to builderscrack.co.nz to see if there were any other options. She already trusted the platform, having used it in the past to find some great tradies. For Paulette, the “ease of use is the best thing”, going on to say that “once you’ve used it the first time, it’s easy to go back and use again” and

Eventually starting up and running her own company, aptly named "Jill of All Trades". She ran this up until she became pregnant with her son. After some time off to be a mum, Sam got back to it, starting up a new business - this time focused solely on painting and decorating. Most recently, she moved to Cambridge for her son to purs

Exterior of house, paint peeling off, badly needs painting

Posted 2 years ago

The house is 110sq meters. I need the exterior painted. The home was built in 1920 and I don't think it has been painted since then. So, a lot of the paint on the exterior surface has flaked off, exposing the original timber. I would appreciate it very much if you could give me a ballpark figure on how much to prepare and paint this home would cost. I've received one quote, which I think is extremely expensive, and I don't think it is correct, as it is nearly the cost of the home itself.
