Simply buying a house in a good neighborhood is not enough. It needs to be converted into a home slowly too. This is not bound to happen overnight though and homeowners have to look for the things that can spruce up their interiors. However, it is important to enhance one’s curb appeal at the same time too. How else to do it but install a great looking mailbox right in front of the home?
Choosing beautiful mailboxes is not going to be a problem though. There are quite a few companies that specialize in them. However, the importance lies in checking one’s requirements for mailboxes are not created alike. Residents can find them in a number of sizes and materials. The trick is to choose diligently while not detracting from its aesthetic appeal.
The costs definitely need to be contemplated along with the durability factor. It would be wise to opt for a sturdy metal such as aluminum that is both lightweight and non-corrosive making it last for years. Selecting from an astounding variety is sure to pose a problem, however. The top manufacturers of mailboxes have a number of options for their customers including ones following the classic design in vogue in the Victorian era and the most modern styles that are simple and elegant at the same time and will not take up a lot of space when installed securely.
The urban neighborhoods and multi housing areas prefer to have double mailboxes installed, however. Many housing contractors and property developers along with housing associations prefer to install the double boxes primarily for cutting costs. Fortunately, that is not the sole advantage that one can associate with a double mailbox installed on either side of a post though.
Why are double mailboxes in demand?
Mail Delivery – The residents of a housing complex or an area that has double mailboxes benefit greatly by receiving their mails and parcels earlier than their neighbors. The postal delivery person does not have to stop to make the deliveries often as multiple letters/parcels/cards can be pushed through the slots of mail boxes at one go thereby catering to several residents simultaneously. There are few instances of the mail getting lost due to non-availability of address when there is a multi-mailbox installed.
Uniformity – The mailboxes are not only attractive but can brand the entire housing area or the apartment building with a rare uniformity that makes it look exceedingly neat. This adds to the curb appeal resulting in an increased ROI for home owners.
Installation time is cut substantially along with the expense since two of the mailboxes are attached together to a single post. The actual process of installing the boxes happens to be simple too without requiring any specialized services. Furthermore, any missing parts or defects can be reported to the manufacturer immediately and gets to be corrected within the shortest possible time.
