Maximizing Home Value: Driveways
Your driveway may not be something you pay much attention to unless it needs repair. However, if you are thinking about selling your home, your driveway can become a critical part of a successful sale. Why? Because the first impression a homebuyer has will be the outside of the home. If the driveway is bland or in need of repair, you may lose that buyer without ever knowing why. A carefully designed and installed driveway not only improves the curb appeal, it can improve the value of the home.
If your neighbors have upgraded their driveways to pavers, your home will be de-valued if you simply install a concrete or asphalt driveway. Pavers enhance the look of the home, make your home distinctive from your neighbors, and can be utilized in nearly all climates. They are durable, easier to repair than other kinds of hardscaping, and will last for many years with little effort other than cleaning. Farmingville Masonry Supply offers pavers from Cambridge Pavers and Nicolock. Contact us for more information on these or other materials we may offer.
The key to a good paver installation is using a contractor who understands proper installation techniques. A carefully prepared substrate will ensure long paver life, just as a poor one will permit pavers to shift, heave, and crack. Ask your prospective contractors for references to customers who have had paver installations in your area.
