The boards on the front verandah are very weathered and loose, and are becoming unsafe.
The external paintwork is slowly peeling off and the verandah balustrades are falling apart.
It's not quite at the point were it would be condemned, but I don't think it's far off.
The decision I'm facing now is do we spend more money on a temporary fix on something that will be replaced in 5 months time or do we bite the bullet and just redo the whole front verandah now? I'm worried that if we proceed with one thing, it will uncover other stuff that needs doing, so where do you stop?
