    Paint the brick white.

    Miss Jason! Can’t believe he was axed. The segments aren’t as good now. Jason knew his stuff and made the show fun. Sad to see it’s changed so much and not for the best. I no longer watch it.

    30-40k in value idk. Maybe 5k. They didn’t do much at all.

  5. SEC on October 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    It’s bottle “bottom” glass, not bottle top.

  6. Gary Smith on October 20, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Should have painted the outside of the house to match the garage.

  7. Eric Hubert on October 20, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    You guys managed to downgrade the roll up door with a regular garage door, this is sad 😢

  8. Jeremy Solis on October 20, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    😂😂😂
    Total B.S
    Increased the value by 30 or 40 K 😂😂
    These guys are a total joke.

    Everyone seems surprised by the 30-40k increase in value but (1) that’s Aussie dollars not US and (2) small cosmetic changes so have a big impact – I painted two walls in my one bedroom apartment, added new handles to my kitchen cabinets and added some built in shelving to my storage locker… and got €20k extra for my one bed apartment in Dublin.

    Most people paint the problems, it’s better to update but everyone misses the roof, could have cleaned the tile roof and adds another major level of improvement. The pressure washing looks like it was done on the driveway but obviously with a small machine which left streaks. A professional pressure washer and roof cleaner could have done that in a couple hours and it literally looks brand new, that is where it lifts the value $40,000 to $50,000 but only costs $2,000 and helps the roof last for ever, Rather than pay someone $5,000 to paint the roof or even worse, replace the roof for who knows how much $$. I would have also made sure the lawns had some fertiliser to lift the green and bring it to life. Another major lift to value is the front door, that would have tied in with the new roller door.

    Flat pack shelves never age well, spend the extra money get something more heavy duty.

  13. Philip Gardner on October 20, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Love to see the outtakes of these programs.

  14. Christine Nichols on October 20, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Did anyone else’s mouth drop open when the appraiser said the makeover added $30-40K value to the house? 😲 Maybe in Australia, but that’s ridiculous in the US.

  15. Barbara T on October 20, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I can barely understand the guy who painted the garage. Holy crap. Everyone has an accent, but his is super heavy.
    How about edging the "new garden" a bit.

  16. Khaled Al-Habib on October 20, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    no need to change your rolling garage door, what a waste

  17. Janice Hales on October 20, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    The sliding door is still dated and ugly with the diamond pattern. Also the amber glass should have been changed out next to the front door to match the garage glass. Updating the front of the home shouldn’t include inside the garage, unless you leave it open all the time!

  18. Alison Tomkins on October 20, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    What edging did you put around the garden? looks like the grass just ends. It will just grow over in a few months

  19. Sevyn Tennyson on October 20, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Why wouldnt they build a proper pathway to the front door what a waste

  20. Lucas Fernandez on October 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Is that a 1 or 2 car garage ? It looks like a 1.75 car garage. Ik Canada has 1.5 car garages but does australia have those too or is it just a really crappy 2 car ?

  21. Linda Arya on October 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    The mute foot consequently print because ant feraly scrape unlike a astonishing hardcover. hysterical, madly napkin

  22. Level1Hera on October 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I live in Canada so many of the construction and gardening options won’t work due to climate differences but I love to see the creative before and afters!

  23. Derek F on October 20, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Did the guy say it added 30 to 40k to the house? LMAO

  24. Simchayah Mawasi on October 20, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Thank you

  25. Loni Macey on October 20, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    They had to change all the guttering as well to match I noticed

  26. Gubbah on October 20, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Comment on *that* *shelving* you put in the garage. They’re rubbish. The frames are strong enough I suppose but the boards are garbage. Even a small amount of weight has them bowing down in no time. Did I say they’re garbage? They’re only good for a landfill. They would be better replaced with 9mm structural plywood. Let me say it one more time. The boards are garbage. Don’t anyone buy those shelves unless you are prepared to replace all the boards.

  27. Bigb on October 20, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Save thousands and just paint the door, also you’re not going to get glass like that again unless you pay a fortune!

  28. Bridgette Carey on October 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I wish you explained more about how the new drainage works!

  29. S K on October 20, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    A lot of people forget about the parking space.

  30. Just Looking on October 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Garage goals! 🙌 Looks great, guys! From Virginia Beach.

  31. Cha' bridget tumusiime on October 20, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Modern technology helps , remote controlled garage door, I love it!
    I love the idea of painting the bricks white and the scrubbing of the floor with a high pressure pipe n then grey painting it. Wow ! The Storage Racks are so functional !
    Am getting used to the plants , they need more flowering plants since they have enough sunlight and young children. But in think the main focus was their Garage makeover!

  32. My believe on October 20, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    How I can contact you…awesome work

  33. Renee Baker on October 20, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    To everyone that’s doubting the $30 – $40k increase… do any of you actually live in Australia and/or are aware of the property price boom here atm?

  34. Beng Beng Washi on October 20, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I love them both🥰😄

  35. Wendy Eskelin on October 20, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    I don’t see how this added 30-40K. I like the garage door and house # sign. I would have left the bottle glass though.

  36. Andy Townsend on October 20, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    There’s no difference at all.

  37. Wimukthi Tharanga on October 20, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    garage door woow. and i know he is doing well always that guy hero. 💐👍

  38. Camo on October 20, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Outdated the garden again by putting the Abela’s in. Plus could of done something with the outdated pebblecrete.

  39. Senem Ulku on October 20, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Wow that looks beautiful good job guys

  40. Predrag Kardashian on October 20, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Those garage doors were fine, waste of money….

  41. Shirley Roemer on October 20, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Nice transform…and informative. However, Elvis is the man of the millennium.

  42. Noreen Ceraulo on October 20, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    I love Jason and his sense of humor. Too bad you felt it necessary to dismiss him without a reason.

  43. D-wreck B-check on October 20, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    That real estate agent is full of it. He’s got a dodgy look.

  44. Gab on October 20, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    The 3 bushes added so much. Just maintaining them at half the height would have been just as nice. The garage door could just have been painted dark, the electric door is really just a gimmick. Overall I’ve liked the old version better🤷‍♀️

  45. Leah Ashcroft on October 20, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Rendering front of house would have made world of difference and cost $2k

  46. karen booth on October 20, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I’m

  47. Tony Schultz on October 20, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Total cost please!!!!

  48. Munira Abdelhay on October 20, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    This transformation was a joke. Nothing much has changed from aesthetic view to make 30-40 grand difference.
