ADD VALUE TO YOUR WALNUT CREEK HOME WITH A PAVER WALKWAY
The other side of your front door is much more than just your front yard. It’s your connection to your neighbors, your community, and your town! Your home’s curb appeal says a lot about you. It’s a reflection of your style and sophistication. If you’re looking for a way to up your home’s curb appeal, increase your enjoyment, and add value to your home, consider hardscaping.
Whether it’s a paver driveway, patio, outdoor kitchen, or rolling paver walkways, pavers will make your home more beautiful, and add value. Not only are they a way of welcoming guests, but you’ll also enjoy many other benefits as well.
THE SIX BENEFITS OF A PAVER WALKWAY
Paver walkways can welcome your guests to your home in luxurious style, create meandering pathways throughout your yard, connect gardens and outdoor seating areas, and more. They can bring cohesion to your landscaping and perfectly complement the style of your home. They can also add value to your home. Here are six key benefits you’ll enjoy when you create a paver walkway.
• THEY ARE ECO-FRIENDLY
First, because they are made from natural materials, paver stones will not leach harmful chemicals into aquifers as cement or asphalt can. As a product, they tend to use little energy to manufacture, which can also lower your carbon footprint. Pavers will last for years standing up to the seasons, and daily use while requiring minimal maintenance.
They also help prevent rainwater runoff. When it rains, water can pool, absorbing chemicals and debris, which are then returned to surface water sources like streams and lakes, introducing harmful chemicals into the environment. Pavers are permeable, which means rather than running off, water is percolated through the pavement where toxins are filtered out as the water is returned to aquifers.
• THEY ARE DURABLE
Pavers are durable, flexible, and, when properly installed, will last for decades with little or no maintenance. Because they are installed using an interlocking system, if a stone is damaged, the repair is easy. Simply remove the damaged stone(s) and replace them. Unlike concrete or asphalt, which can require frequent patching and repairs and never really looks the same after a repair, pavers stones will look great year after year.
• TURN YOUR HOME INTO ART WITH CREATIVE PAVER WALKWAY DESIGN
Pavers come in a wide variety of colors, sizes, textures, and shapes. With a little creativity, you can create artistic walkways that enhance your home’s look. A brick walkway in a herringbone pattern with a cobblestone edge can add a touch of elegance to your home. Except for pressed concrete, you can’t take an artistic approach to your hardscaping. Unlike pressed concrete, which can require repair, a paver driveway can last a lifetime.
• THEY PERFORM BETTER WHEN IT RAINS
If you have a traditional walkway, rain can sometimes be a problem. Most walkways constructed of asphalt or concrete keep the rainwater above the surface. This moisture can create a slippery surface that can be especially dangerous for older homeowners and guests. Pavers allow water to drain off naturally because they are permeable and have small gaps between the stones allowing water to drain away harmlessly.
• THEY ARE CUSTOMIZABLE
With the wide variety of choices available, you can create a unique look for your home. With other walkway systems, you have very little ability to customize their look. With an interlocking paver system, you can create patterns, use colors to complement or contrast your home, and choose the stone that matches your home’s style and exterior design. For example, nothing is more striking than slate walkways around a contemporary style home, or a flagstone walkway leading up to a beautiful Victorian.
• PAVERS LAST A LIFETIME
Because they are installed using an interlocking system, pavers will last for decades. Unlike asphalt and concrete, which require frequent maintenance, and can stain or crack requiring patching a repair, your paver driveway will never fade. If there ever is a problem with a stained or chipped stone, repairs are easy. Simply remove the damaged stone and replace it, and your walkway will look as good as the day it was first finished.
