BEAUTY, COMFORT and QUALITY – three words that sum up what every homeowner desires of their home. Oftentimes, we place the emphasis on interior features, but when you live in the Lowcountry you can take advantage of the mild climate to enhance your outdoor features, too! There are many ways to improve the exterior beauty of your home and extend your living areas to the outdoors using hardscape products.
Let’s start with the driveway. Whether you’re building a new construction or remodeling an existing home, the first thing guests see when they pull up to your home is the driveway. Though concrete is normally the standard choice, it certainly is not the wisest. Many people will choose concrete simply because it’s slightly cheaper, not taking into consideration that the concrete will eventually crack and need replacing. When that happens, you could repour only the damaged area, but the new concrete will not match the existing concrete color, leaving a less than desirable look. Or, you could simply go to the expense of completely replacing the entire driveway.
On the other hand, pavers will not crack, and if for any reason they do, a good paver resource company should offer a lifetime warranty that guarantees they’ll be replaced at no cost to you (it’s important to verify this before you buy). So while your initial investment might cost a little more upfront, you’ll definitely come out ahead in the long run. Not only will pavers end up saving you money, they also look beautiful! It’s incredible how easily a new paver driveway will completely change the look of your home. With a variety of style and color options, you’re sure to find the perfect paver to complement your home, regardless of your personal style.
Whether you want to emulate the cobble in the streets of Savannah, the natural stone which comprises the sidewalks of downtown Charleston, or the tabby finish renowned in the Lowcountry, there is a paver product that will captureyour vision. There are even permeable paver options for those areas with flooding issues and for those who want to stay environmentally friendly.
Now that your gorgeous paver driveway is installed, imagine a matching paver walkway leading to your backyard where you can create an oasis you’ll never want to leave. Paver pool decks with an outdoor kitchen and bar make for a summer of fun in the sun, while a patio accented with a fire pit or fireplace is perfect for those chilly winter nights. Retaining walls are a great way to create usable space to a yard with elevation challenges. Envision watching the sunset on your sunken patio while sitting around a fire pit roasting s’mores with your family and friends. That’s the life!
