    Summer is the time to tackle curb appeal upgrades

    Is your driveway looking a little tired? Is it starting to crack and fade? A worn-out looking driveway can tarnish the curb appeal of your home. Unfortunately, most homeowners put off repairs until issues start to appear, like water drainage issues. And what about your garage door? Is it old, making strange noises? It could be time to replace that too! Upgrading your driveway and garage door will add to the curb appeal of your home and summer time is a perfect time to address these issues.

    Driveways and pathways around your home should always be sloping away from your home, just like the grading around your home.

    If you notice water pooling around your home then this could be a sign your grading needs attention as this water could end up in your garage or basement, causing a leak and more issues.

    Common types of driveways

    The most common types of driveways are asphalt, interlocking stone and concrete (or stamped concrete).

    Asphalt is the least expensive and performs well. Asphalt driveways should be at least 2” deep with a 6-8 inch gravel base to ensure that cracking and pitting do not occur. However, I recommend they should have a minimum of 10 inches of gravel tampered every two inches — followed by a minimum of four inches of asphalt on top. The thicker the stone base, the stronger the driveway will be — l like to go thicker because I have a lot of heavy vehicles, so it pays to have a strong driveway.
