DRIVEWAYS

 

Choosing The Right Driveway For Your Home

 

When choosing between a concrete driveway and the other three types of driveways, take into the consideration these things: Budget – Curb Appeal – Climate – Amount Of Ongoing Maintenance – Durability.

 

If the short term, up front cost is a deciding factor, Gravel Driveways are excellent, low cost options, depending on the size of your driveway and the thickness requirements.

 

The long term trade off however, gravel driveways require more ongoing maintenance. If cost is not as important of a factor, and aesthetics are more important, then a Concrete Driveway or Paver Driveways are the only alternatives for a beautiful hard surface driveway. While initially the up front costs are higher, long term they require less maintenance therefore less maintenance costs.

Also take into consideration the effects of a concrete driveway if it’s not maintained properly or how it can look as it ages.
