Increase Your Home’s Value with a Concrete Driveway

Decorative concrete driveways in Salem are a great way to see some return on investment while adding value to your home.

Recently, we broke down some reasons why you should get a concrete driveway over other options like asphalt, or even gravel (unless you want a dirty home and car). In this post, we are going to break down how having a nice concrete driveway in Salem, Oregon can actually increase the curb appeal, and therefore perceived value, of your home.

We have mentioned before, concrete is a very versatile material. It can be laid out in a variety of different fashions. Decorative concrete driveways have become increasingly popular. Due to the popularity of these unique driveways, they can add to the bottom line of what a prospective buyer might be willing to pay for your home. The look and feel of a decorative concrete driveway is just one way your concrete contractor can add value to your home.

Much like other big home improvements, a long-lasting improvement like a concrete driveway in Salem can provide prospective buyers peace of mind. Knowing that a concrete driveway will last decades and will need minimum repair work can be very comforting to home buyers. After all, who wants to buy a home and then immediately start repairing or renovating it? Potentially costly home renovations with a sense of urgency are not what prospective home buyers want.

The only word of caution is to make sure you find a qualified Salem concrete contractor. Your contractor should be licensed, bonded, and insured. Be sure to read Yelp and Google reviews on several contractors before making a decision as well. Be sure to ask your concrete company if they can provide the stamping, stains, and look you are aiming for with your project. Also get quotes from several different concrete contractors. There is no harm in being thorough!
