Paving Tips For Commercial And Residential Properties

If you need a new driveway, sidewalk, or walkway for your home or commercial business property, we're here to help address your concerns. Our educational blog covers paving topics ranging from small residential jobs to large commercial concrete projects. Because most big paving jobs aren't for "do-it-yourselfers," you won't find instructional tutorials on our site explaining how to excavate your backyard or pour a cement driveway. You might, however, discover blog posts providing you with helpful tips on maintaining your concrete driveway and removing oil stains from your newly paved garage floor. You might even find a post or two on the types of municipal permits you or your paving contractor might need if you're planning on undertaking a small paving project at home.


Three Ways To Freshen Up Your Home's Curb Appeal

If you are thinking of selling your home, you will want to look for ways to freshen up your curb appeal. The landscaping and home exterior is the first thing potential buyers will see when they show up to walk through the home. Putting some extra effort into this outdoor space can help you see a return on your investment. Here are three things you should consider tackling before listing your home:

The Driveway 

Consider improving your driveway if it needs some time and attention. It might be time to call paving contractors if you have any bumps, dips, buckling, or cracks. Asphalt can buckle or crack over time because of the changes in the weather. Water can get under the driveway or fill cracks and expand when temperatures drop and it freezes. When the frozen water melts this can make the space it sat in collapse. This movement due to expansion can make your driveway need some repairs. Using asphalt paving contractors you can have a nice smooth driveway and even alter the current path. If you have a driveway that doesn't allow for easy navigation or much parking consider making some changes to the design. Even adding a few inches in width can make a big difference.

The Lawn

Is your lawn looking okay? If it has dry patches or invasive weeds, you might want to consider laying some new sod. Laying new sod can make your front yard look fresh and new for home buyers. You want them to feel that they can handle caring for the yard and see themselves taking over. When surveying the status of the yard it is wise to look at your sprinklers. Make sure they are spraying over an even area and coming on when they are meant to. Just upping your water schedule by a few hours a week could help your grass dramatically look better.

The Exterior Paint

If your house is looking out of date these days, it might be time for a face lift. One of the best ways to do this is to repaint the exterior of the home. Paint color can transform your house and update it dramatically. Look for inspiration by driving around and looking at neighbors' homes and then try to find a color scheme that will work well for you.

Spending some money to freshen up the exterior of your home can help you get the best price in return. Spend some extra time and money on these things before you list and be ready for multiple offers!
