Our Concrete Driveways Worth It?

Concrete driveways remain the most popular option among homeowners. If installed by an experienced concrete driveway contractor, slabs can withstand heavy foot traffic.

The question property owners need to answer is not whether a concrete drive is functional, but whether they should spend their hard-earned money. Concrete driveways can be a good investment. These are just some of the reasons why concrete driveways are a great investment.

  • Concrete driveways last longer than asphalt ones and require minimal maintenance. It is usually 50 to 60% more durable than asphalt driveways.
  • Weather: Concrete's ability to manage heat, temperature, and sunlight is one of the main reasons it is so beloved. Asphalt materials, such as asphalt, are subject to significant expansion and contraction with seasonal temperature changes. This can lead to cracks. Concrete becomes more rigid and also reflects light to maintain a steady temperature.
  • Maintenance: Concrete's ability to withstand expansion and contraction is reduced, making it ideal for property homeowners who don't want to have to do as many chores annually. This low-maintenance option gives you decades of enjoyment without having to maintain it.
  • Resale: Concrete driveways add curb appeal. Concrete driveways will provide buyers with the peace of mind that they won't have to make any repairs in the future.

A concrete driveway installation can also yield a high return on your investment. A paved driveway could increase property value by as much as 10%. Others estimate that the return for investment in paving an existing crushed stone driveway is 50-75%. Read more about investing in a concrete driveway here.

How Much Does A Concrete Driveway Cost?

A concrete driveway installation can cost anywhere from $4 to $15 per square foot, with an average price of $6 per foot. The expense can be affected depending on the size, location, reinforcement, decorative aspects, and whether or not a driveway is required. You may also overlook the following cost-drivers:

  • Staining a concrete driveway with color can enhance its aesthetic value by matching it to the home or adding an ornament to the grounds. This process adds labor costs and increases the cost of materials.
  • Stamping: Expert concrete driveway contractors can stamp patterns into the slab to give it a new dimension. While it increases the price per square foot, durable concrete driveways can mimic inlaid stones, marble, and tile.
  • Heating: Snow-sprayers who do not like to shovel snow can have heated coils installed that melt the snow slowly. This feature reduces the shoveling load and minimizes the potential for slip-and-fall injuries from ice buildups.

Concrete driveway installation is still a cost-effective way to upgrade a house. A basic slab will still be relatively costly but provide a good return. These slabs are not expensive, but they will provide long-lasting value.
