Giving Your Driveway a Makeover

An old, worn out driveway is not exactly ideal. It affects the value of your home (structurally and financially) and can damage your car. The longer you leave it, the worse the situation becomes.

A new driveway will change the look and feel of your home. It is an investment worth making for the future and the results speak for themselves.

The Benefits of a New Driveway

If your driveway is looking a little worse for wear, it is time to have it upgraded. Concrete and asphalt driveways will eventually succumb to the damage caused by excessive use. The advantages of putting in a new driveway include:

Added Value

Getting a new driveway can add significant value to your property. If the driveway leads into a garage, that value will skyrocket even higher. The average expected return for your home can be anywhere from 5-10%, so the return on your investment is well worth it should you decide to sell. After all, no buyer wants to purchase a property knowing that they have extensive renovations to do.

Less Maintenance

Putting in a new driveway is by no means cheap, but it can save you money in the long term. If you have a driveway that is made from cheap material, the constant repair work is both costly and time-consuming. A new driveway takes the stress out of constant repairs and cleaning. As well as that, your vehicles will be less prone to the damage caused by an uneven driveway.

Kerb Appeal

While it’s more of an American term, kerb appeal is definitely real and it refers to how your home looks from a distance. A new driveway will make a great first impression, whether you wish to sell or you want to improve the functionality of the driveway. The aesthetic appeal of a new driveway will add personality to the front of your home. You can pick and choose different colours and styles to suit your home. The choices are endless and the results will amaze.

Built to Last

When installed properly, the lifespan of a driveway is impressive. Concrete driveways can last up to 30 years on average. With proper care and maintenance, that number can increase significantly. A quality driveway should be able to withstand all the local conditions without any signs of cracking or shifting. Over time, you will need to monitor the health of the driveway but any significant damage shouldn’t be prevalent unless a major catastrophe occurs.

A new driveway can add much-needed value to your home. The aesthetic appeal and smooth surface will leave your neighbours feeling envious.
