There are many ways to upgrade your home’s value, with upgrades to your home’s exterior and landscaping being an integral part of the overall process. Whether you’re thinking about the resale value of your home or looking to create a more comfortable, appealing outdoor living space, it’s important to understand how the improvements you make to your home’s exterior and landscaping can impact your home’s value.
With so many home improvement tips, tricks, and go-to materials available, it can be overwhelming to decide where to begin. Adding to the challenge, several of these choices come with a very high price tag. Although there are costs associated with improving the appearance of your home, it is possible to accomplish this without breaking the bank. In fact, interlocking pavers are an affordable, sustainable, and incredibly durable way to not only elevate curb appeal but also create a next-level outdoor retreat.
Here we explore several ways stone interlocking pavers can benefit your home’s overall value and aesthetic.
The addition of a backyard feature, such as a stone patio, is one of the most affordable and effective ways to expand your living space. Stone interlocking pavers allow you to get more out of your property and increase its overall value, providing financial benefits down the line. Best of all, your beautiful new patio creates exceptional visual appeal and is the ideal space to entertain or spend quality time with family.
When investing in home improvements, it’s important to keep return on investment (ROI) in mind. Interlocking pavers are a cost-effective way to extend your functional space, especially compared to other more extensive improvements, such as investing in a basement renovation or new addition to your home.
The interlocking patio pavers we install are not only aesthetically pleasing but also a great budget-conscious option. As a certified interlocking company, we make it easy to design and install your patio to your exact specifications providing a low-maintenance outdoor living space your family can enjoy for years to come.
If you’re hoping to increase the value of your home, improving the curb appeal is a great place to start. A strong first impression is one of the most important aspects of home value. Whether your goal is to show pride in your home, create a warm welcome, or impress prospective buyers, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by investing in your home’s exterior.
Hiring professional landscapers to install interlocking driveway pavers can help transform the appearance of both the front and back. Adding a beautiful interlocking driveway, walkway, or stone patio using interlocking pavers provides distinctive, standout features that are memorable. Enviro-Loc offers interlocking concrete pavers that come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, textures, and colours that allow you to customize the appearance of your home.
A major benefit of interlocking pavers is their durability. Unlike concrete or wood, stone interlocking pavers have minimal risk of cracking and deterioration. They are specifically designed for protection from the elements for long-lasting beauty. The joints between each paver leave space for the stones to swell and contract with changing temperatures, allowing them to withstand the extreme weather conditions we experience in Ontario.
Compared to other materials, this added resistance level makes them less likely to crack or be damaged by drastic temperature changes. In the event a paver needs to be replaced, it won’t cost as much because you’re only looking at the cost of removing and replacing a single stone.
On average, the low-maintenance interlocking concrete pavers we use only require attention every 2 to 4 years. We can assist you with your Interlocking Maintenance by pressure washing and the installation of polymeric sand, so your interlocking concrete pavers continue to look stunning for years to come.
With durability comes longevity. When compared to other materials, interlocking pavers are one of the longest-lasting options for driveways, walkways, and patios. When maintained properly, interlocking paver driveways and patios can last up to 30+ years.
Although you can expect to need some minor restoration after around 10 – 20 years, it is far less daunting than what you would experience with wood or concrete. For example, the pavers might need lifting and relaying in some areas to ensure the interlocking surfaces remain flat.
This means that when you choose to install stone interlocking pavers, you’re investing in long-term value.
As the world shifts towards sustainability, it’s important to consider how you can invest in environmentally friendly options for home improvements. If anything, having more environmentally conscious features in your home will benefit you as a homeowner and increase the property’s overall value.
Interlocking stone pavers offer several different environmental benefits that other materials don’t, including:
Reduced runoff: The pavers offer a permeable surface where rainwater can be absorbed back into the ground rather than creating unnecessary run-off.
Less waste: stone interlocking pavers require minimal maintenance, meaning there is less waste created over time compared to other materials such as concrete and asphalt.
Today, many homeowners take things a step further, opting to have an entirely permeable stone patio yard without any grass. This gives your home a distinctive, modern aesthetic while minimizing the water wasted on grass or garden upkeep.
We’ve all heard the phrase “feng shui” when it comes to home decorating and improvements. While this concept may seem a little far-fetched in the context of interlocking stone solutions, it is actually an essential factor when creating flow between your indoor and outdoor living spaces as well as the different areas of your backyard.
How you feel when you walk through your home or backyard has a major impact on the comfort of your space. Can you move around comfortably? Is there enough space for guests to gather? Does your hardscape complement the rest of your outdoor features?
When your goal is to increase the value of your home, it’s always important to keep balance in mind. Interlocking pavers can be a great option to create defined spaces for your home’s exterior. Keep in mind, overdoing it can actually negatively impact your ROI.
It’s best to consider building a simple patio with interlocking pavers to extend your indoor living space. Interlocking stones also make great walkways to help with the flow from one end of your backyard to another and from the front yard to the backyard.
