Driveways by Franklin Concrete Company
Most homeowners have some form of driveway in front of their house. This is a big piece of concrete that requires maintenance and has a big effect on the look of your home. When you resurface or upgrade your driveway, you could increase the property value of your home. Driveways come in many different looks and finishes. Franklin Concrete Company is proud to offer several different driveway solutions and our consultants can help you choose the driveway that best suits your needs.
If curb appeal is something that you value, then you need to consider what looks and finishes are popular in your neighborhood or housing addition. You do not have to choose the same materials that others around you have been using, but the appearances of those around you will affect the perception of your driveway. Gravel is expected in rural and working-class areas, whereas asphalt and concrete are more popular in middle class zones. Stone is probably the winner in more ritzy neighborhoods, but it is up to you to decide what is right for you.
Ultimately, the mediums and designs that you choose for your driveway will probably have much more to do with your budget than anything else. Installation and resurfacing costs will depend on the size of your driveway, what sort of drainage features you have, your current design elements, any landscaping that is nearby and the type of paving material. Many people pay for home renovations with the use of a credit card, while others plan in advance and use their personal savings. There are other ways to get credit, such as opening a home equity loan or renovation loan.
When you begin building a new driveway from the ground up, you will have to plan in advance how you want your driveway to be shaped. Many driveways are created in a rectangular shape that is located in front of their home and along the street. In other areas, you can create different shapes such as curves and pull throughs depending on the neighborhood and location. If you have any odd shapes around your home or in your landscape, you will need to take these things into account when you are planning your new driveway. Our experts have experienced with all shaped and sizes of driveways and can help you come up with the perfect design.
It is very important to be aware of the rules and regulations that are in place in your area when it comes to a constructing a driveway. Your local municipal laws may regulate property improvements. We can help you sort out the red tape so that you can have the driveway that best meets your needs.
