5 Ideas For a Driveway Makeover

Your driveway is an important part of your home. When guests arrive this is the first thing they see. If you are planning to sell your home, it is also the first part of your home that potential buyers will see. This is probably the path that everyone will walk up to get to your home so it helps if it looks nice. Here are 5 ideas for a driveway makeover.

1: Stonework: Stonework might be a little more expensive than any other design but it also has the most benefits:

  • Stonework is extremely low maintenance once is has been laid down.
  • Most people have concrete or paved driveways. Stonework is unusual.
  • Stonework is very attractive to look at. It provides an air of sophistication to your driveway.

2: Bluestone: Bluestone is a form of sandstone used to create extremely elegant looking driveways. It is expensive but the material is very durable which means that you won’t have to do anything to your driveway for a long time. It is also non-slip because of its naturally-rough surface.

3: Concrete: One of the most popular choices for a driveway is concreteOne of the main reasons is that it’s the cheapest material. Although it’s not as costly, when it is laid correctly it will last for decades. Concrete is very versatile. There are several different finishes that you can  incorporate into your driveway design. Once complete, there is not much you need to do in terms of maintenance apart from sweep and hose every so often.

4: Paving: If you don’t like the idea of concrete, paving is another smart option for your driveway design. Pavers are a very stylish option, and they provide you with a range of installation and design options. Repairs and replacements are cheaper than concrete because the pavers are not connected, this means that if one is damaged, they are cheap and easy to repair.

5: Lilydale or Gravel Topping: Maybe you don’t want something as permanent as stonework or concrete. If that is the case, a Lilydale or gravel topping is a great option for you. There are several benefits to this type of driveway:

  • It is relatively inexpensive.
  • When it comes to installation, the process is fast and easy, all you have to do is pour the gravel onto the driveway and flatten it out.
