When the time comes to renovate, you’ll be on the hunt for the best products, treatments and materials to elevate your home and take it to the next level. While there is a multitude of options available on the market, you should opt for the ones that bring the most value to your property and offer long-term benefits.
These are a couple of options that you can find on the market to improve the exterior of your home like new fences, doors, gates, planting a tree, hanging up a lantern, changing the paint of your doors and redoing your driveway. As professionals in concrete paving Vancouver, we can tell you that while all of these options are fantastic, only one of them will actually increase and maintain the value of the property at the same rate of the investment, and that is redoing your drive-way.
Why Repave Your Driveway?
Have ever seen residential driveways where the slabs are completely broken, cracked or worn out and faded? As professionals with years of experience in concrete paving Vancouver, we can tell you that concrete is meant to last for generations when properly cared for. While cracks and fading are inevitable as your driveway’s life cycle comes to a close due to years of weathering, poor maintenance and exposure to the sun and vehicle fluids, proper care can slow down this process significantly.
Every change requires a certain degree of commitment and having a good, smooth looking driveway requires exactly that. All it takes is regular sweeping and hosing down with soapy water, the occasional spot cleaning for fuel stains, and maybe a pressure wash when the surface gets especially dirty.
Just like asphalt, concrete has a myriad of benefits:
- Made to have a long life span
- It is fire resistant
- It is a long term investment (all it takes is regular maintenance to keep it looking sharp)
- High levels of thermal mass (it is good for temperature control)
- Curb appeal
- Increases resale value
