Every house needs a beautiful driveway. Driving across the grass isn’t a great option for most of us. If you need a new driveway entrance or expansion, HFS Financial is here to help you find the right loan option. With so many options to choose from, you can get the perfect driveway for you this year to add curb appeal and practicality to your home.
The Best Types of Driveways
Need help choosing which driveway is the best for your property? Here are a few of the most popular choices among homeowners.
- Concrete — Easily the most common option due to its affordability and its long-lasting durability, concrete is effortlessly customized for shape, pattern, or color.
- Pavers — A bit more expensive to install, pavers are a beautiful option. What brick or stone pavers lack in cost-effective material, they make up for in style. You have various color options, making whatever you choose unique and adding a ton of curb appeal to your home. This selection will also last for decades.
- Asphalt — Another easily installed driveway, asphalt is affordable and a great option for snowy climates. Because of the black color, it assists in melting snow by retaining heat. You will have to get it resealed every four years or so, though.
- Gravel — Gravel is an excellent choice if you’re looking to save money, need an easy DIY project and want several color choices. Gravel is also perfect for helping with water runoff. It will require more upkeep in the long run, though, and may not be best if your region gets a lot of snow or rain.
Add a Little Heat
After you have selected your perfect driveway material, if you live in a snowy environment, you will want to consider adding in heating. This is especially important if you have a steep incline to your house.
Heated drives are all the rage now, saving you time and effort from shoveling snow. This ingenious technology can be placed under concrete, asphalt, or pavers to melt away ice and snow so that you are never trapped in your driveway or, heaven forbid, out of it!
Make It Beautiful
No matter which material you decide to utilize for your driveway, make sure you add a little pizzazz. Each of the options listed above comes in various colors or can have designs incorporated into them. A quick search on the internet can provide you with numerous ideas to get you started on what you would like to see in front of your home.
Make It More Useful
After you have your driveway built, go ahead and add a garage to house your vehicles. HFS can help you get financing for this as well. Not only will this add function to your home, but it will also increase its value.
A garage can add not only protection, but you could incorporate an ADU or garage apartment to add additional income for your household or space for people to live. No matter what you decide, HFS can help you get the financing you need.
