Whether you’re in the market to sell or update your home, the team at Cassidy Paving knows a way to do so without breaking the bank. Did you know that a little asphalt paving can go a long way when it comes to the value of your home? Unfortunately, people do judge your home by its outside appearance, so make it easy to get that great first impression.
HomeLight found that 94% of realtors suggest improving curb appeal before listing a home and 99% believe curb appeal is important when attracting a buyer. Especially if you’re reading this because you’re putting your home on the market, considering a new asphalt driveway can mean the difference between selling or not. The average cost across the country for paving an asphalt driveway is $4,567 and that can go up to $6,315 according to Home Advisor. This comparatively minimal investment can sell your home for you. No buyer wants to walk onto a property with a cracked, worn, and an unsightly driveway. Think of this as a sort of insurance policy on selling your home quickly.
There’s more to a new driveway than just slapping on some pavement. The right contractor will take the time to design the correct asphalt drive for you. Cassidy Paving brings the best mixture of functionality and visual appeal. Our approach will cover subgrade, drainage, traffic load, and the environment. Pavement Interactive says that “Environmental factors such as temperature, moisture, and ice formation can affect pavement durability, binder rheology, structural support, and ultimately pavement life and failure.” We understand that these are all important factors for pavement and want to deliver you the highest quality in driveway asphalt that you can get anywhere in the New England area.
How to Prepare For New Asphalt
If you’re ready for a new asphalt update to your home there are some things you can do to get the most bang for your buck. The first thing is that you want to hire the best contractor in your area. It is important to shop around and ask your friends for recommendations. Always look for a company like Cassidy Paving that is insured, bonded, and even pre-certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Between credentials and reputation, you are bound to weed out the companies that won’t be able to help you increase your home value. The next thing you should do is postpone any landscape upgrades until after your new driveway is in place. New asphalt and landscaping makes for an irreplaceable combination, but you don’t want to prune those bushes or plant new flowers until you know what the drive will look like. You also don’t want to have heavy machinery treading through your new grass. Also, before your contractor comes, clear the area of debris and any large items and move your vehicles or other moveable property out of the way so that work can begin promptly upon their arrival.
