Increase the aesthetic appeal and market value of your home with concrete
According to HGTV, adding a walkway and driveway can add to the market value of your home as well as increase its curb appeal. A concrete paved driveway gives your home a clean, finished look and will make it stand out in your neighborhood. Nothing says class quite like a concrete driveway!
Bridges and roadways are made of concrete due to its superior strength, structural integrity and durability. Concrete driveways are built to last and are a good, solid investment for the life of your home. Concrete driveways and walkways are practically maintenance-free, unlike asphalt that requires regular maintenance, costing you more money over time. Concrete is also more environmentally friendly. So remember to keep this in mind, because initially concrete may be slightly more expensive, yet over time is more economical to maintain.
There are also practical matters to consider. A concrete paved driveway will protect your car from gravel dust, dirt, and mud. Concrete will cut down or eliminate the dirt being tracked into your house from outdoors, especially after the rain has turned your unpaved driveway to mud.
Aside from being functional, your cement driveway will be a place for your family to enjoy roller-skating, riding bikes, skateboarding, and playing basketball. Nothing says home in suburbia quite like a basketball hoop in a paved driveway! To double the fun, you can even add an outdoor sitting area nearby. The possibilities are endless.
You should begin by looking through magazines, books, and online for designs that appeal to you. There are an unlimited number of ways to design the outdoor living space that you want. You may want to begin by considering safety when designing a plan. If your driveway is on a busy street for example, you may want a circle driveway, so that you don’t have to back your car out onto a busy street.
