As a homeowner, driveway renovation is likely not high on the list of improvements initially considered by an individual but a closer examination reveals there are significant benefits to completing such a project. While the reconstruction of a driveway may not top the list of necessary outdoor improvements, once finished, the results offer a desirable outcome which can have a lasting impact on both your property and pocketbook.
Depending on the current condition and makeup of your driveway, the change can be welcome and extremely beneficial. Your driveway sees more wear and traffic (literally) than any other area outside the home and needs to be given the same consideration and opportunity for improvement as more traditional locations like porches, patios, and lawns.
Following are some of those benefits which occur immediately upon replacing your concrete or asphalt driveway with brick pavers.
The first thing people see when they pass by your property is the outside and their initial curb appeal reactions often lead to judgments about the cleanliness, expertise, and at times the homeowner themselves.
Not only will improving the curb appeal of your home create a better impression on everyone passing by but it can also increase interest in a property if ever put up for sale. A new or even older brick paver patio enhances both immediately.
Brick paver driveways offer a significant return on the initial investment. Money spent to upgrade or install a brick paver driveway can generally be assumed to return twice the amount upon a sale of the home.
One of the best landscaping projects for maximizing home value revolves around the driveway as that is often the first interaction individuals have with your home.
Another factor to consider when upgrading is the durability of the material selected. Obviously, if replacing a cracked and worn out driveway constructed of concrete or asphalt, the same will have to be completed again in the future.
Brick paver patios are constructed to last a lifetime and should any area ever need repair, a brick or two can be replaced instead of having to completely re-do an entire driveway. While the cost may be more initially, the return on investment and knowing that by completing the project with brick pavers is a one-time deal, more than makes up for the cost differential.
