The Benefits of Patios and Walkways on Your Property
Are you looking for a way to enhance your property? If so, consider installing a patio or walkway using pavers.
Why Install a Patio or Walkway on Your Property?
There are several benefits to adding a patio and walkway to your property, including:
Easy entertaining: Outside entertaining is a breeze when you have a patio. Just add some outdoor furniture and invite friends over for a weekend barbecue. Guests can relax as you work the grill or serve summertime cocktails. During the week, you can enjoy dining al fresco with your family.
Curb appeal: Having a professionally installed walkway that leads from your front sidewalk to a side or rear patio is an attractive look that’ll certainly get noticed.
Added home value: Adding a patio and walkway to your property will definitely increase the value of your home. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, a patio is listed as one of the top 10 features homebuyers look for. With that kind of demand, you can increase your asking price by about $5,000 to $10,000 when it’s time to sell.
Increased safety: Most people don’t think about how adding a walkway will create a safer home. However, a solid walkway is easier to walk on than gravel, stone, and even just plain grass. It’s especially important that you have a safe path to the yard if you have children or older folks living in your home or visiting often.
What are the Best Materials for a Patio or Walkway?
Patios and walkways can be built with a variety of materials, from brick, ceramic tile, concrete, natural stone pavers, or flagstones. While each material has its pros and cons, we highly recommend Cambridge Ledgestone pavers for 3 reasons:
Aesthetics: These pavers are simply gorgeous and will elevate the look of any home.
Quality: All Cambridge pavers are produced with their ArmorTec technology. The advantage is a smooth, dense, and skid-resistant surface for increased safety.
Price: These pavers are priced right, so you can achieve the look you want without breaking the bank.
In fact, we recently completed a walkway and patio job in Colonia, NJ using Cambridge Ledgestone pavers. The results were fantastic and the homeowners were thrilled! We often use Cambridge Ledgestone pavers because not only are they beautiful, but they’ll stand up to years of harsh weather and foot traffic.
When is the Best Time to Install a Paver Walkway and Patio?
Getting a patio installed now means you can enjoy it for the rest of the summer and even into the milder fall months. However, waiting for winter may mean that your contractor will have more availability to complete the job quickly. Plus, your patio will be waiting for you when spring rolls around. So really, the best time to get a paver walkway or patio installed is whatever time is best for you.
