Find your Street Appeal with Stroud Homes Toowoomba
One of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make when starting the build of your new home, is which building material and façade to use.
A façade will enhance the street appeal of your new home and your decision can impact the design aesthetics, ongoing maintenance and the overall look of the building.
It sets the mood to your home, gives your house a ‘personality’ and can set you apart from the rest of the street.
Design and building trends are always changing over the years, therefore Stroud Homes Toowoomba customers now have more new home façades to choose from than ever before, with over ten different façades currently on offer.
The most cost effective façade is the standard brick veneer option – the Classic façade – which provides a great entry point for clients who’d like something modern and durable, but still keep within their budget.
Depending on the look the client is after, Stroud Homes also has a new façade option this year called the Hamptons which goes great with a large entry way/porch.
The new Hamptons façade brings a touch of Long Island country charm to your home and is defined by casual, relaxed beach style living but done in a classic and very sophisticated way.
For the more traditional style there are a Coast or Federation look which is very popular in the Toowoonba region. However, according to Fraser Hess from Stroud Homes Toowoomba, the most popular choice is the Mountain façade which is unique to the Stroud Homes franchise.
“The mountain façade is a signature look of Stroud Homes and is particularly popular with our acreage designs as it seems to really tie the house together nicely.”
Maintenance is a very important thing to consider when choosing ‘the look’ for your new home. If you go with a timber clad home or similar, the upkeep with re-painting needed every 10-15 years can be quite significant.
A standard brick veneer home is the cheapest and lowest maintenance option and would be one of our more common choices.
Most façades can be applied to most Stroud Home designs. However, some façades such as the Skillion with certain roof lines may not always suit a particular floor plan and could end up being more costly.
We have had clients that really like a certain façade and for budget reasons chose to incorporate it to the front of the home to maximise street appeal and then revert to a standard brick veneer for the rest of the home.
