It is really easy to take home maintenance for granted. I sure did. I moved into a home that was in great shape, and then I underestimated how quickly it would start needing repairs. Before I knew it, I was in over my head because I let too many things slide for far too long. One thing I underestimated was painting, so I ended up getting house painters in Brisbane to do the work for me. I realized just how much work it was, far too late.
Because I do not spend much time outside of my house, I really did not care at first what the outside of my home looks like. I spend most of my time indoors, and I was at first worried about things needing attention inside instead. But by doing this, I ignored the fact that my roof would need a lot of help, and that later ended up causing trouble for the inside of my home. And I let the painting go outside as well, and that cost me money with buying materials to re-do the siding on my home.
I really enjoyed working on the little home improvement projects that I was working on inside the house. But then, there were so many of them, that it was eating up all of my free time. It found that it took several weekends just to paint one room because of all the prep worker you have to do, then the painting, then the clean up work afterward. Then, I would take a break from painting and work on something else in the house during each weekend. The months were slipping by really fast.
When I saw that my roof was leaking and rain water was getting into my house, I knew I was in trouble. The roofer pointed out that I also needed to get my house painted because my wood siding was rotting. I stopped then doing everything myself and got real help.
