Adding a driveway to your home is a great investment. Along with your yard, driveways are one of the most prominent features seen when people approach your home’s exterior. They add to your home’s appearance, value, and space. Having a nice driveway provides a number of benefits to you and your home. Listed below are some of the benefits linked to a driveway installation.
Adding to Your Home’s Appeal
Aside from your yard, driveways are one of the first things seen when people visit your home. Installing a driveway to your home adds to its appeal, creating a sense of personality. Driveways can be made with many different materials and finishes, resulting in an attractive addition to your home’s exterior, allowing your home to stand out amongst others.
Adding to Your Home’s Property Value
Along with adding to your home’s appearance, driveways can also increase the value of your home. Generally, installing a well-laid driveway can increase your home’s value by 5 to 10%. Even if you don’t have plans for selling your home in the near future, having a driveway that’s well-laid and maintained can go a long way in boosting your home’s value for a future sale.
Functionality and Parking
Like your yard, driveways are an addition to your outdoor living space. Driveways can serve many functions aside from parking, including garage sales, storage, a play area, and in some instances, additional security from trespassers and other vehicles. However, parking is the primary purpose of a driveway. With driveways, you never have to worry about securing a parking spot, parking your car in unsafe areas, or the inconvenience of walking long distances from your vehicle to your home.
Installing a driveway in your home provides many benefits. Depending on your wants, needs, and budget, there are a variety of options for your driveway installation. Below is a list of materials commonly used in residential driveway installations:
