First impressions are indeed a powerful tool in the world of real estate. They have the potential to make or break a sale, and the gateway to your home is no exception. Consider the case of an old, dilapidated red brick fence that surrounds your property. This initial view not only detracts from the overall aesthetic appeal of the home but also casts a shadow over its market value. It’s time to turn this around.

Consultation Request

In the realm of real estate, a seasoned agent is a valuable ally. One such agent contacted our professional property maintenance service, seeking advice on how to improve the curb appeal of a home. We were tasked with devising a cost-effective, yet effective plan to instantly enhance the home’s exterior. The agent and homeowner were convinced by our proposal, recognizing the potential it held for increasing the property’s market value.

Our Recommendation

Our strategy was simple yet effective. We proposed infilling the brick piers with treated pine pickets and painting both the pickets and brickwork in a crisp, clean white. This dual approach would not only refresh the home’s exterior but also create a sense of unity and cohesiveness in the overall design.


Upon arrival, we cleared the work area, ensuring a safe and organized workspace. We then utilized a high-pressure power washer to thoroughly clean all walls, paying particular attention to the mortar joints, where dirt and moss had accumulated. This step was essential to guarantee optimal adhesion for the paint and ensure a clean, fresh look.

Precision is Key

Once all materials were on-site, we established a safe working area. We set up our tools, including saw stools, and laid out the materials. We adhered to the mantra of “measure twice, cut once” to ensure accuracy and efficiency in our work. This principle is a cornerstone of professional craftsmanship and was adhered to throughout the project.

Fence Construction

Our first step was to secure the treated pine subframes between each set of piers using masonry anchors. We then marked the locations for each picket using a measuring rod, ensuring a 30mm gap between each. We predrilled all pickets on the saw stools for precision. Subsequently, we hung the pickets using galvanized screws, starting from the top and then the bottom. This meticulous process ensured the stability and longevity of the new fence.


We employed an Wagner Pro 150 airless spray painting unit and British Paints 4 Seasons Low Sheen White. While an Airless sprayer uses more paint, it significantly reduces the time spent compared to traditional brushing methods. This allowed us to achieve a professional-quality finish in a fraction of the time.



The entire project was completed by a single professional in just four days, dramatically enhancing the home’s curb appeal. The transformation was remarkable, proving that a simple, well-executed plan can significantly improve a property’s market value. The homeowner was thrilled with the result, and the property’s new curb appeal quickly attracted potential buyers, resulting in a successful sale.



In conclusion, enhancing the curb appeal of your home is a practical and effective way to increase its market value. By following these steps, you can transform your home from a mere dwelling into a valuable asset that not only provides shelter but also adds to your financial portfolio. Remember, in the world of real estate, first impressions do indeed count.
