Paving with a WOW factor:-
There are many reasons to pave areas around your house. A problem is that not too many people try get the WOW factor into their paving. I think most people just want the practical use out of their paving. Plus, a lot of home owners simply want to eliminate the need to cut the lawn. Something that most home owners forget is that paving plays a big part in the overall appearance of the property.
Presentation and aesthetics.
The entertainment area is one area that is often initiated but neglected over time due to finance. As a home owner you should look at each area and consider whether you would buy your own house based on the current paving. Once you look at your house this way you will then identify the areas that need attention with regards to paving. A good point to always remember is that grass and plants are always needed to enhance any paved area.
When potential buyers approach your house, the first thing they see is your driveway. Then, in most cases the front garden is next. Often both the garden and driveway are visible to these potential buyers without them even exiting their car. Does your existing driveway invite or chase any potential buyer? Even if you are not considering selling at this moment in time, your external appearance could just give your house a valuation boost and a WOW factor to your investment.
What good is it if your house has gold and diamond trimmings inside but your driveway discourages potential buyers from even coming inside to see your trimmings? Never underestimate the power of your driveway and always get a professional company to give advice on your paving needs. A builder can give you the best house in the country but he will more often than not falter when it comes to paving selection and installation.
You would never allow your dentist to perform surgery on your children and you should also not allow your builder to install your paving. It is a science and a major investment and should be handled by specialists.
