Why Our House Foundations Last For Generations

20201013 - Vogue Homes - Blog 12 - Why Our House Foundations Last For Generations - Header

When it comes to building houses, one of the most important things is starting with a solid foundation. Your foundation is the basis of your home build – whatever happens at the bottom, affects what goes on top!

At Vogue Homes, we pride ourselves on working with the best installers and the highest quality materials, so that the foundation of your home lasts for generations to come.

We Take Time To Prepare The Site

When building a house from the ground up, the first thing you need to do is prepare the site.
We take the time to holistically assess the area we’re working with to ensure the best possible foundation for your build. Preparing a site includes clearing the site, as well as levelling or digging, as required.

Investing effort into preparing a site thoroughly prior to laying foundations, plays a key role in ensuring that they last for years on end.

We Use Australian Steel

Using high-quality, locally sourced materials is a major part of building a foundation that will withstand the test of time.

For example, the steel used with the Katana product also comes codemarked from a 3rd party to ensure the product is engineered ‘fit for purpose’ and both the manufacturing process and Installation process meets all guidelines.

Here, at Vogue Homes, we use Australian steel that is unrivalled in terms of strength, quality and durability. When you buy local products from local suppliers, it allows for a faster turnaround time and is more cost-effective when it comes to delivery. It’s also a great way to support our local businesses!

The Australian steel construction industry has spent many years perfecting their craft and investing in developing technology to increase efficiency of production and dispatch.

We Only Employ Quality Installers

We pride ourselves on the professionalism and experience of our people. That’s why we only employ quality installers when it comes to building the foundations of your project.

It’s important to us that your project is completed to the highest quality by a specialised team of experts. As a family-run business, we’re passionate about the work that we do, and as such, we are very selective about the installers we work with. We only work with leading foundation installers who not only comply with all local regulatory standards, but also use the latest techniques and technologies to deliver superior results.

All of our Installers are qualified and certified annually to ensure we only have compliant Installers on every job.

Their high quality craftsmanship makes for building foundations that are durable and stand strong for generations.

Our Cutting Edge Design

With over 38 years of experience in the home building industry, and a background in custom home design, we have stayed up to date with the latest trends and techniques to keep our style cutting edge.

We have our finger on the pulse of the emergence of new technologies and innovative designs. When building your home (beginning with its foundation!) we combine our latest learnings with years of collective knowledge and expertise.

We’re Conscious of the Environment

At Vogue Homes, maintaining environmentally friendly practices, across the entirety of our build process, is a priority.

Where possible, we use recycled plastic to reduce environmental impact. This makes our build process model sustainable over time.

We take measures to ensure our construction waste is properly disposed of and/or repurposed. We also minimise risk of construction run-off into the waterways and community by using silt protection along with designated, enclosed waste areas.

When you work with Vogue Homes, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your foundations are going to last the distance using sustainable solutions.

Our Solution is Cost Effective

We believe in providing a fair, right price for the work we do. Our pricing is transparent and reflective of our high quality standards.

Vogue Homes ensures you get bang for your buck! As we source our quality materials locally, this means that we’re able to save you costs in the long-run in terms of freight and maintenance. We maintain open communication across your entire build journey so that you can see exactly how your money is being used for your build.

We understand that building a new home is a long-term commitment, which is why everything we construct, from your foundation to roof, is built to last.

Clean Sites Every Time

Once your foundation is laid, we make sure that your site is left clean and tidy for the next stage of your build.

Having a clean site after your foundation is laid is about more than just aesthetics. Measures to avoid soil erosion and to control sediment movement, are also part of the clean-up process.

Ensuring that any rubbish, dirt and debris is cleared away enables the rest of your build to progress smoothly. If a site isn’t properly cleaned up after foundation works have been completed, this can create flow-on effects, including uneven flooring, and in some cases, council fines.

At Vogue Homes, we understand that a great home build starts with a solid, durable foundation. From thoroughly preparing your site for construction, to clearing away excess materials, we see your project completed, end to end.

The combination of our expert staff, innovative technology and cutting edge design ensures that our foundations last for generations!
