Your house is more than just a property. It’s your HOME. We’re craftsmen who appreciate not just the physical properties of a building, but what it means to you.

The walls, the roof, the windows all come together to form the memories you’ll live with for the rest of your life. If you have any children on the property, they’ll look back on your home with nostalgia and warmth.

It’s not just about the big details. Oftentimes the things we remember most are the little things. The knobs on the sink, hinges on the fence, the material of the walkway and driveway.

If you own a home in Shady Side, driveways and walkways may not sound like a very exciting home improvement, but our experience leads us to think differently. Although they’re built for functionality, there’s much more to the creation of these paths and steps than meets the eye. We’re going on record to the residents of Shady Side: driveways and walkways don’t have to be purely functional. They can look good and complete the memories of your home, as well.

Why your property NEEDS a Professional Shady Side Driveway and Walkway Contractor

Aside from the emotional value - there are also real tangible reasons for why your home can benefit from a new or updated driveway or walkway. Not only can a driveway, walkway, or patio give you more outdoor space, but they can actually have financial benefits as well.

Increased Property Value -  If you plan on possibly selling your home in the future, hardscaping is of major importance. In order to receive the most money for your home as possible, you’ll be busy fixing up the inside with new electric work and plumbing. But the exterior of a home is just as - if not more - important. Studies have shown that hardscaping can actually raise a home’s value by 20%. When it comes to something as high value as a house, you can’t afford NOT to do it.

Curb Appeal - The view of the house from the street is often called “curb appeal” and it all revolves around the overall ‘beauty’ or desirability of the home.

But what makes a home beautiful or desirable? Some might say house color, landscaping, architecture, etc. There are many valid opinions, but we have our own. It’s what we call “flow.” How cohesive is the property? Does everything look like it BELONGS together?

This is where hardscaping comes in. We always tell our clients in Shady Side, paver steps and walkways and driveways act as a sort of “glue” which brings everything together. It ties your garden to your garage and your front door. You just can’t ignore it.

Increased Surface Area - We’ve never had a customer complain that they have too much space to sit and enjoy their yard. In fact, we’ve heard many complaints that there’s not enough surface area. For anyone living in Shady Side, walkways and pavers are a great way to increase your outside space.

This is why paver walkways and patios are important even if you never plan on selling your home. The more walkable areas you have on your property, the more time you’re going to spend outdoors ENJOYING the other features you’ve worked so hard on.

So if increased curb appeal, a higher property value, and more space to enjoy your property outdoors all sound good, you might be wondering what your options might be. How exactly can you achieve this? Here are a few things that we specialize in:

Walkways -  Without a walkway, you’re slowly eroding the earth below your feet as you walk. Since you’ll need these anyways, you might as well make sure they’re first class! Luckily the creation of beautiful walkways is also a specialty of our Shady Side driveway contractors.

Paver Steps - You can think of paver steps similarly to walkways - except instead of all being bound together, they’re stand-alone stepping stones. As we’ve heard from our regular customers in Shady Side, paver steps really help to add that extra ‘something’ to a home. We can put them anywhere you’d like: an entryway, patio, garden, and many other places. Our Shady Side paver contractors are skillfully trained and can turn any paver walkway into a piece of art.

Driveways - Driveways don’t have to be boring! We can create a custom pattern with border accents. How about customizing the bottom of your driveway to have your last name spelled out in stone? Our Shady Side driveway contractors could make your driveway the talk of the neighborhood - for all the best reasons.

Our Professional Shady Side Driveway and Walkway Contractor Materials

You might now have an idea of what kind of hardscaping you’d like at your home - but there’s still a big question to think about. What type of material should you use? We can guide you in the right direction if you’re unsure. The wide variety of materials we use include:

Concrete - Concrete is extremely versatile. It can be used for walkways, driveways, patios and more. Whatever color concrete you’d like, or texture, we can accommodate your preferences. No matter what your budget is, concrete is a great fit since it’s one of the cheaper materials to buy.

Brick - While slightly more expensive than concrete, bricks are a great choice if you’d like to give the exterior of your home a more classic look.

Stone - Stones are special because they have both a modern look or a rustic look depending on application and styling. You almost can’t go wrong!

Depending on the ‘feel’ you’re trying to achieve and whether you’d like paver steps, walkways, or a driveway, different materials should be used. We’ll advise you through the entire process.
