Visually, a raised foundation functions as a pedestal, enhancing curb appeal regardless of architectural style.

Landscaping also enhances the look of a raised floor home by accenting, rather than hiding the home’s facade.

Finishing touches to the foundation’s appearance are an important final step to complete the job. Many options are available. For a continuous stemwall foundation, for example, textured concrete blocks or stucco can provide an upgraded look. For pier-and-beam foundations, pressure-treated wood lattice is a popular choice to install between perimeter piers.
