Helped to Spruce Up my house in East York

I recently heard about Spruced Up from my neighbours, and met with Eric to discuss some ideas for a house in the East York area. He came to the property and listened to the ideas of what I wanted to do with my property and get it ready for sale. Our semi-detached was in really bad shape, so we were just making mainly cosmetic changes to improve the value of our property. He came back a few days later with several ideas and a written quote of how to landscape the front and backyard. Some of the items were outside of our budget, but his ideas were amazing. The before and after photos of some of his completed jobs looked great. He even brought several sizes of rail ties to see what it would look like for our front lawn.

Some of the items that he completed for us.
Install 12 foot chainlink fence $1,700
Scrap, sand and paint porch $1,500
Pressure washing of exterior $600
Reinforced handrail, changed downspout and changed light fixture.

Pace of work was a bit slow, took about 3 weeks to get all of the work done. In comparison, Wow1Day painted the entire first floor in 1 day. Keep in mind this was in early April and there was still snow on the ground. So the ground needed to thaw before work could be started.

Protip - If it's a vacant property, consider using a lockbox. He needs access to things like water, electricity and washrooms and I didn't want to be at the property all day.

Would definitely work with him again in the future.
