Driveways are often overlooked as a major contributor to both the curb appeal and function of your home and property. There are a few different choices of materials that come with different price points. How prominent the driveway is to the overall look and use of your property can be elevated depending on the choice.
Concrete. A common choice for both durability, cost and appeal. $5 to $6 per square foot. Up to 50-year life span.
Gravel. Very budget friendly. Compacts nicely. Does require regrading and maintenance. $1 to $3 per square foot. Up to 100 years life span.
Brick. Beautiful choice to set off an inviting curb appeal. Needs to be properly installed to stand up. $6 to $10 per square foot. About 25-year lifespan.
Paving Stones. Both beautiful and durable. Luxurious look when installed. $15 to $30 per square foot. Up to 100-year life span.
Asphalt. Looks and functions a lot like concrete, but less expensive and less rigid. Requires annual or semi-annual re-sealing to last. $2 to $5 per square foot. 12 to 20-year life span
