The Queenslander is a much admired and sort after home that can be found in most parts of Queensland as well as northern New South Wales.

We have all admired other people’s homes. Regardless of the period, style, size and location there are many homes you look at and just say “wow”, “I could live there in a heartbeat” , “that’s my dream home” , “if I won Lotto that’s where I would want to live” and so on. We can be equally critical about the homes we don’t like. The ones we look at and say “what were they thinking?” “look how untidy that yard is”, “I don’t like the colour scheme” or “it looks very ramshackle”, “maybe its abandoned”.
Painting the exterior of your home is an affordable way to make a big positive change in how it is perceived. When completed by professionals it will look great and protect your home from the elements for years to come.
