How Paving Stone Projects Can Increase Your Home’s Value

If you’re looking for a surefire way to increase both the value and the enjoyment of your home, look no further than a paving stone project.

Pavers have the ability to withstand harsh winter weather; this make these products a great fit for properties throughout the tri state area that experience snow, ice, rain and then humidity in the warmer months. If you are considering listing your home, especially during the winter or cooler months, a paver driveway will only help improve the opinion potential buyers have of your home.

Paving stones can provide an aesthetic upgrade to your driveway, walkway, pool deck, garden or even an outdoor fireplace to make it look more inviting and luxurious to homebuyers. Paving stones can also provide an upgrade to an outdoor patio to impress family and friends during barbecues and summer events. To put it simply, paving stones can add extra curb appeal and resale value to your home.

When the weather warms up, paving stone backyard patios practically scream “barbecue!” Paver benches and retaining walls can give a fire pit or barbecue area a homey campfire vibe that is sure to attract prospective buyers.

But there are also numerous maintenance benefits to installing paving stone. Unlike concrete or asphalt, you won’t have to worry about your driveway cracking as it ages, and maintenance and upkeep should be minimal. This should be appealing to homebuyers who don’t want to spend a lot of money on ongoing maintenance.

Unlike pavers, concrete and asphalt can develop cracks and hollow areas. This damage may create an uneven surface, which is a safety risk for anyone walking o your driveway.

Paving stones hold up much better in the severe winters we experience in the tri-state area, as you won’t have to deal with a splitting or damaged driveway during the winter. Pavers are dense and the joint sand in between each stone gives them the ability to flex and recover from the ice and snow.
