Driveways play a large role in the beauty of our homes. This hardscape serves as an essential tool for our lives and impacts the value of our home. Selecting the wrong materials for your driveway can cause you to tarnish the beauty of your home.
Fortunately, there are a lot of driveway materials you can consider for your home. You can choose from a wide range of options when you work closely with our team. If you want to install a new driveway for your home, consider any of the following types.
As the most popular type of driveway, concrete is an affordable choice for your home. There is a lot you can do with concrete when it comes to the design. You can even choose different colors with additives that contractors add before it is poured. It is one of the most popular choices for driveways because of how cheap it is. Other concrete materials are not as affordable, so they are less attractive to small budgets.
Concrete is extremely durable and easy to maintain. If your concrete drive is ever stained, use a pressure washer to remove those blemishes. You should also consider a sealant to prolong the life of the concert driveway. If this type of driveway is for you, then feel free to reach out to our team.
A paver driveway gives your property an intellectual and elegant look. Pavers are extremely customizable with so many different options. They come in a number of different materials, colors, and designs. In most cases, pavers are made from natural stone, concrete, or brick.
The biggest drawback of paver driveways is their price tag. Since the installation process takes longer and the materials require more attention, you’ll spend a lot more than a concrete driveway. With so many different customization options, we can pinpoint an exact price here. Instead, contact our team for an accurate, free quote.
Asphalt driveways are similar to concrete in that they are easy to install. In turn, you can save some costs on the labor when the installation begins. While asphalt is relatively affordable, it only comes in one color: black. So, if you are looking to add some personality to your concrete, asphalt is not the recommended choice. In order to maintain its beauty, you’ll need to add a sealant that typically lasts between four to five years.
4. Crushed Stone
Crushed stone is different from gravel in that it is smaller and provides a smoother surface. Unlike gravel driveways, crushed stone is more customizable in terms of the color and type of stone. The cost of crushed stone is similar to concrete but may run you more depending on the types of personalization choices you make.
As the most timeless driveway material, cobblestone is a favorite among many homeowners. You have almost an unlimited amount of personalization options when it comes to cobblestone. You can choose from shapes, colors, and designs!
While cobblestone is one of the most expensive materials on this list, its capability of lasting a lifetime makes it worth your money. You won’t have to maintain it either, considering it doesn’t require a lot of attention. If you want a cobblestone driveway, finding a company to perform the job for you may be more difficult.
