Most people consider a driveway enlargement when they need more space to park and move vehicles. Many driveways were built with just one or two smaller vehicles in mind, but changes within the family can make that driveway significantly cramped. You may choose to park an extra car on the road, but this solution opens that vehicle up to a world of accidental and incidental damage that doesn’t happen when the vehicle is safely parked on an expanded driveway. If you find yourself in such a predicament then why not consider extending your driveway today?
What to Consider
A well-designed driveway will consider the surrounding landscape as well as your home’s architectural style. Additionally, the width and layout of your driveway will impact how accessible your home is. There are a variety of layout options for residential driveways you can choose from to accommodate your needs. It may be time to reevaluate your driveway needs anyway – maybe an in-law lives with you now and needs easier access to the front door, or your children are growing up and getting cars of their own! Your next decision is to choose the best material to use to pave your driveway, considering your budget and design goals. The material you select for your driveway also must durable enough to resist tire marks, oil drips, and everyday chemicals.
Asphalt is, without a doubt, the most reliable weather resistant material and can be designed for low and high traffic conditions. Not only effective in withstanding the harsh elements of fall and winter but with its solid components, it can easily withstand the pressure of much larger automobiles. Another great benefit of asphalt is that it’s completely recyclable. Asphalt roads can be dug up and then re-used. This is what makes asphalt such a popular, modern day material. When we use it, we are preserving our natural resources, by reusing the same material over again. Asphalt driveways are also simple to preserve, just by sealcoating every 3-5 years!
