4 Reasons Why Carports Are Great Investments

Carports are more important to a condominium or apartment complex than many people think. The value they can potentially add (or subtract) from the property is a great amount, and it has gone up in recent years as insurance has upped the standards for carport durability.

  1. They Last A Long Time

With any good investment, you want it to be able to give you more than your money’s worth and end up paying for itself over time. The way that carports do this is by lasting a really long time- like 30 years or so. Investing in a high-quality carport that is built to last and resist the elements and do what they are meant to do- protect cars, will end up paying off.

Carports are far from cheap, especially if you want ones that will stand up to strong winds and last your community a while. The last thing you want is to have to be replacing them after only a few years. Even the cheap ones are not cheap enough to make that practical.

  1. Carport Kits Attract Buyers & Tenants

A typical carport kitCondo and apartment buyers and tenants want to know that their cars and their guests or renters’ cars are safe from the wind, rain, hail, snow and other damaging elements. If a carport is cheap, old or flimsy looking and not well maintained, it will discourage buyers. The best thing you can do is to look at carport kits to ensure that your clients’ cars and motorcycles are as safe as possible and well looked after.

As one of the first things, they see when they enter the community, it will either send a good or a bad vibe, so it is important to make sure that the carports represent your community well.

  1. Home Carports: Brisbane Needs Them!

Investing in an unattractive or shoddy carports in Brisbane is a bad idea because of how high visibility they are. If there are things to skimp on, this is not one of them. Think about it- people will see these carports every day, multiple times each day. Potential buyers and clients will see them when they are driving by the condos or apartments, guests will see them and walk through them in the parking lot. An ugly and rickety carport cheapens the entire look of the apartment or condo complex.

Look at carports as a way to brighten up the place and make it look sleeker and classier. By making sure that you invest in high-quality carports and maintain them well, you are not only showing your customers and potential buyers that you care- you are also showing that your association takes pride in how you look.

  1. Quality Carports Save You Money

How can such an expensive feature possibly save you money? For one, the high-quality carports will last a long time and not need to be replaced or repaired and updated nearly as often as the cheaper versions.

Also, they will save you money on insurance. This is actually becoming more necessary than before since many associations would just wait until their carports collapsed and then rake in the insurance money. Now insurance companies are requiring better wind resistance and maintenance as well as charging higher premiums. Having a high-quality carport will be a much less hassle and money when it comes to insurance.

Etiquette of Wedding Invitations – Do’s and Don’ts

Beautiful wedding invitations

Ordering wedding invitations in Australia: what you need to know before ordering

Wedding invitations consist of:

  • Save the Dates
  • Invitations
  • RSVP Cards

All three of these cards should be mailed separately, and at different time intervals of the big day. They all serve different purposes and should be treated individually. All these cards should be mailed, hand delivery is too casual. If you and your significant other want a casual wedding, then hand delivery would be okay. But remember this is your big day, so casual sometimes just isn’t enough. You can find amazing wedding invitations in Australia online from this store. They specialise in invitations for weddings that come with a custom appeal and design

When should save the dates be mailed?

If you and your fiancé have family and friends that live scattered and far, it’s good to send Save the Dates well over three- six months before the Big Day! It’s never too early to give a heads up, and besides I am sure you are beyond ecstatic to share the news with your dear loved ones. Although, nowadays with social media, most likely the big majority of your family and friends have already seen or read your excitement on your Facebook page and/or Twitter feeds.

Save the dates should include:

  • First and last name of the two to be wed
  • The date that has been picked (it’s called Save the Dates, so a date should already be picked)
  • Time of event (if yet known)
  • Location or at least a general location (if exact venue hasn’t been pinned down, then give the general city in which it will be held, for e.g. New Orleans, Louisiana)

When should engagement invites be mailed?

An engagement inviteWedding invitations should be mailed out six-eight weeks prior to the event. Engagement invites similar to these can be customised to suit your exact style and colour that you want for your special day. Invitations should be addressed using proper name etiquette, using Mr. and Mrs. With the husband’s first name and last, ex. Mr. and Mrs. John Smith. No need to list children names. If the couple you are mailing the invitation to aren’t married then use both full names in alphabetical order, by last name, ex. Rachel Adams and Brent Parker.

Invitations should include:

  • First and last name of the two to be wed
  • Short little introduction of who is presenting the wedding (optional)
  • You can list any children names between the two (optional)
  • Date
  • Time
  • Venue address (or addresses if wedding and reception will be held at two separate locations)
  • Contact number, if the guest has any questions (note this isn’t a RSVP number)

When should RSVP be mailed?

RSVP’s should be the last correspondence that is mailed prior to the wedding. It’s good to mail these two to three weeks prior, four if a guest lives several states away allowing enough time for the mail carrier to deliver the RSVP cards. With today’s fast mail response, one can mail a package from California to New York in a matter of 3-5 business days.

When the RSVP card is being mailed out, it would be feasible at this point in time to slip in a separate piece of paper (roughly the size of a business card) stating where the bride and groom to be have gift registered, along with any special event instructions (like: open bar, sit-down dinner, food bar, BYOB, bring flip-flops (if beach wedding), or just anything that you believe could help your guest feel comfortable).

RSVP cards should include:

  • First and last name of the two to be wed
  • Brief reminder of the date, time and location
  • A good contact number, mailing address or email address to respond to for RSVP purposes.
