At E.A. Quinn Landscaping, we don’t spend all our time designing and installing elegant outdoor living spaces. Many of our customers look for assistance in creating a higher level of curb appeal for their home. A paver driveway can do just that, by dramatically changing the look and feel of your home. If you have never considered a paver driveway, perhaps now is the time. We have outlined the top reasons why paver driveways are one of the best home investments you can make:
- Complement the design of your home
Pavers come in a variety of colors, sizes and shapes. You can select pavers for your driveway that play off the design elements of your home. For example, if you have a classic New England home, you may want to consider cobblestone for your driveway. If you have a more modern home with unusual geometric lines, you’ll want to look for pavers that reflect that style. EA Quinn Landscape’s designers can guide you through the selection process to select the material that suits your home.
- Environmental benefits
Permeable pavers are designed to allow water to pass through, benefiting the environment and preventing drainage issues around your property. Not only will they reduce water build-up but permeable pavers will also provide moisture to surrounding plants.
- Easy to maintain & highly durable
Paver driveways are durable and easy to maintain while holding up for decades under all the weight and wear of vehicles. The polymeric sand is a flexible joint that not only will prevent weeds from appearing on your driveway but it moves naturally with the freeze and thaw cycles in our region, eliminating the worry of cracks and heaving. Should you have an oil leak on your driveway it is very easy to pop out the affected paver and the repair is seamless with no unsightly patches or lines. We have installed many paver driveways that are over 20 years old and they are just as beautiful today as when they were first installed.
One of the most under-appreciated benefits of a paver driveway is that it minimizes lifetime maintenance, repair, and replacement costs. A paver driveway doesn’t just add value to your home; it also helps when selling your home, by increasing desirability when potential buyers view your property.
- Increase your curb appeal
What’s the first thing you see when you come home? For most people it is their driveway. A paver driveway reflects a home that is simultaneously classic and contemporary. It helps make your home the envy of everyone who passes by or drives up to it!
