Curb appeal may be one of the most frequently used buzz words in the home renovation, purchasing and building space. In fact, it’s a bit of an odd phrase; who wants their curb to have appeal? The irony is, many don’t know that the curb appeal has little to do with the curb, instead referring to the first impression that a home gives off when someone walks by. Luckily for you, you’ve stopped by the Restumping Melbourne site and blog!
Not only is this your home for the best underpinning, reblocking and restumping products and services in the area, it’s also your hub for all of the information that you need to make the right decisions for you and your home. We don’t believe that our expertise and advice should end at the core services that our business was built on. Instead, we believe that when you have all of the information that you need – home renovations, home building, landscaping, you name it – you’ll feel far more comfortable and confident completing the projects that are important to you.
But while we have spent decades educating ourselves and our team on what’s going on in broader industry, today we’re talking specifically about your foundation. We’re discussing the surprising role that it has in boosting your curb appeal.
It doesn’t make sense right away, does it? After all, you don’t see the foundation of a home from the street. (At least, we hope you don’t. If you do, we’ve got bigger problems to tackle…) While you may not see the foundation from the street, you do see all the side effects of foundation jobs gone wrong. There’s a reason that fundamental components of anything are referred to as foundations. They’re the root, the base, what everything is built on. And if they’re not in good shape, everything else suffers.
Have you passed a house recently that just didn’t look like it was as sturdy as it could be? Maybe a home that had seen better days when it comes to paint? Perhaps you’ve even seen a home with cracks in the walls or the roof. These are all common side effects of restumping, reblocking or underpinning jobs gone wrong. See, when the foundation isn’t properly fortified, the above-mentioned telltale signs indicate it immediately. And it’s very important to problem-solve this right away, because these problems will only get worse.
Conversely, when a foundation job is done right, it’s apparent in every other piece of the building. And if you’re looking to sell in the near future, you have twice as much incentive to get the work done right, now. Prospective buyers are bound to ask about the structure itself, as well as renovations and past construction jobs that have taken place. The last thing that you want is your foundation to hold you back from a sale.
