Add value to your home with modern concrete paving slabs
Whether you have a new portion of your house that needs a driveway, or you are looking into concreting an existing space, concrete or imprinted concrete driveways are a good option. If installed by skilled professionals, a concrete driveway can enhance the value and aesthetic appeal of your home immensely, all at a relatively low cost.
These types of driveway or patio have started to become more popular in Dublin as they are cost-effective, very easy to maintain and in the case of imprinted concrete, amazingly stylish too. You can get a similar look to natural products like stone, brick or cobble without the hefty costs involved.
Advantages of concrete and imprinted concrete driveways
There are several advantages to having this type of driveway as compared to more traditional cobblelock or natural stone options. These include:
Increases the value of your home
This type of driveway adds quite a lot of value to your home because of its coloured and stylish designs and easy maintenance. If done correctly, it can look much more expensive than the true cost would suggest.
You can create a personalized look, colour and style that fits your home and matches your taste if you choose to go with imprinted or stamped concrete.
Stable, durable and hard-wearing surface
It is highly recommended that you hire a skilled company to install your concrete driveway. This will make sure that a specific mix is used and guarantee durability at its maximum. If concrete is installed correctly, you will also never see any cracks or sinking appear.
With concrete, you do not have to worry about removing weeds and moss, which makes this option low maintenance and stress-free. There is never a need to re-grout or re-sand. A simple sweep every so often is all that’s required. And if you can’t find the time to do that, then a quick power wash also brings it back to looking like new.
Weed growth is something that is very common in most traditional driveways. When this occurs, patches of green show up in between the slabs and stones. As Imprinted concrete driveways are made in one unified surface, there is very little chance that you’ll find weeds in your driveway. Aside from resealing every 3-5 years, these are basically maintenance-free.
Lasts a long time and has a permanent finish
Concrete could last up to 30 long years. Depending on how the driveway is maintained, your concrete can keep looking as good as the first day it was laid.
A word of warning
Concrete driveways, when badly installed, are impossible to repair without it being noticeable. Even if it’s just a section that’s been printed badly or chipped, discoloured or cracked, it will show a noticeable difference between the new area and the original surface when replaced.
