    Hi,

    I'm buying my first home and it needs a bit of work doing including painting the front of the house. It looks a bit of a mess under the windows where the water has run down.

    Does anyone know how much this is likely to cost if i paid a professional to do it? Obviously it only needs the top half of the house doing at the front.

    Also, is there anything i can have done to prevent the dark streaks under the windows from reappearing soon after it's been painted?

    Thanks to anyone with advice.

    If its a reputable painter and Decorator they will require a " First Floor" Decorators Scaffold to work off the Porch,
    If its a " Jack the Lad" just hope his ladder dosent slip on the Blockwork of the driveway, Under elf n safety you could be liable for any injury he sustains because you have hired someone that is not using the correct equipment
    About £500/600 should see it labour /materials and scaffolding A couple of days work, the fascia board of the Porch wants painting as well
