Welcome to the VIC Underpinners blog! We’re passionate about ensuring that the foundations of your home are safe and sound. That starts with the communication – we’re there for you the entire time. It continues with the very best products and services that you can find in this area and beyond. And the best part? It continues far after the work is complete – and is there whether you choose to use our resources or not. That’s right – we’re here to share all of the information related to your home, to each and every visitor of our blog. Some companies’ blogs only focus on their specific skillset. In our humble opinions, knowledge should extent to every element of your home. That’s why it’s time for yet another round-up of home news. Read on for more details:

Job Switchers in U.S. Tech

If you’re looking for a job change, this article is for you… It’s the right time to switch jobs, according to this write-up – especially if you’re looking at tech or construction. Both appeal to VIC Underpinners because both inspire us to stay on the top of our game in a changing landscape. ADP Research Institute just released a report supporting this. “The tight labor market is pushing companies to pay more,” Ahu Yildirmaz, co-head of the institute, said in the report. “As labor shortages are apparent in most of the sectors, the businesses are holding on to their skilled workers by increasing their wages.” Check out this link for more information.

Tokyo Olympic Construction Race Raises Worker Safety Questions

If you’re already excited for next year’s Olympics, this article is for you… Yes – it’s only a year until the World descends on Tokyo and we see the very best in athletics and entertainment. But an element of work that’s very close to the hearts of the VIC Underpinners’ teammates is safety. The same goes for those that are participating in the set-up for Tokyo 2020. More than half of the venues are already completed, but the team this year is being even more cautious. There have been instances in past Olympics where certain rules and regulations were bypassed – that won’t be the case this year, leading to what some have said, may be the best Olympics yet.

“It’s My Landscaping, It’s My Personality.”

 If you’re looking for something lighthearted, and you have a bit of a green thumb, this article is for you… It would behoove us to not always share a find on the Web that makes you smile or laugh. When we reinforce the foundation of your home, we increase its curb appeal and value. Something else that does? Your landscaping. Yes, it should represent your personality, but it should also complement your neighbors and neighborhood. This owner may be pushing it a little bit with their “junky yard”, but you be the judge. “It’s my landscaping, it’s my personality,” the owner says. Check out this link for more information.
