4 Reasons to Install a Block Paved Driveway

Block Paved Driveway

Whether you’re looking to sell your home in the future or selling is just a possibility for the future, you want your property’s value to be as high as possible. One way you can increase your property’s price tag is to install a block-paved driveway.


It Will Look Great

The more appealing your house is to the eyes, the more likely it is that potential buyers will be attracted to it. A block-paved driveway adds a charming old world elegance to your home that will make it stand out from boring concrete or gravel driveways.

It is easy to create custom designs for block-paved driveways. You can choose the color of the stones, or even use multiple colors. When the stones are laid out in an appealing pattern, the finished look will be unique to your home. Explore online galleries to gain ideas and realize the true potential of a block-paved driveway.

Another high point of pavers is that they continue to look good for years — for generations, even. The stones are resistant to fading because of the sun.

It Will Come With Longevity and Durability

Gravel driveways become compacted over time, and the gravel can spill into the yard and surrounding areas, meaning you’ll have to periodically bring in new gravel to keep the driveway in good shape. Concrete driveways are difficult to repair. A block-paved driveway comes with no such issues. If a paver gets cracked, it is relatively easy to replace it. Furthermore, a professionally installed block-paved driveway tends to be up to three times stronger than the concrete alternative.

If you’ve ever seen a block-paved driveway that wasn’t expertly installed, you may have noticed that the stones slipped or wobbled. The experts at System Pavers can combine the stones with asphalt to prevent slipping and ensure that your driveway is easy to drive and walk on.
It Will Allow Water to Pass Through

If you live in an area with heavy rains, you’ve probably had some unpleasant experiences with runoff from your driveway. The water can flood your yard, damaging your landscaping. A block-paved driveway allows water to pass right through it, helping to keep your property in good shape even when severe weather hits.

It Will Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Improving your home’s curb appeal is perhaps one of the best ways to increase your chances of selling quickly and for a good price. A beautiful home tells potential buyers about you as the homeowner; it will indicate that you take pride in your place and have taken care of it. While an old and cracked driveway doesn’t mean that the rest of the house isn’t in good shape, it can still put off some buyers.

Another reason curb appeal is important is because a good-looking exterior invites potential buyers to enter the home, and what are your chances of selling if no one wants to take the full tour?

Your home should look good from the inside out. A beautiful and practical block-paved driveway could be just what your property needs to turn it into a desirable market item.

That does look nice. I live in a townhouse and the driveway is cement.
