We've been on planning on getting a new roof (colour steel) put on this year, and we've now also decided to pay to get the house painted (we want to change the colour, and don't have the time to do the whole thing ourselves).
So we're wondering what is the best order to do this in - new roof or paint the house first? I had wondered if we got the guttering taken off first, get the house painted, then the roof replaced (on the basis it'll be easier to paint the eaves without guttering), but what's the usual/best way of doing this?
Also, it would be great to know if anyone has recommendations for good-value (but quality) roofers and painters in Palmerston North.
Finally - regarding roofing, is it necessary to pay additional sums for thicker colour steel if one doesn't live in a windy and/or coastal environment?
Thanks for any advice.
