When you look at your home, do you see little imaginary price tags hanging over certain parts of it? Energy Star appliances, those will add value. Efficient windows, those increase the asking price. Old insulation... hmmm, better redo that before I go on the market. If you're making home upgrades with an eye on a return on your investment, there is something else you should consider.
Most houses have boring old concrete or asphalt driveways. There's nothing inherently wrong with them, but they aren't a big selling point. However, if you want your home to stand out, you should consider using porous paving as a way to add a few more dollars to your home's price tag.
StoneSet, Gravel, And Your Home's Value
As HGTV points out, a unique driveway is a great selling point. This is particularly true if your driveway has a pattern to it, instead of being an in-and-out straight line. One way to create that kind of drive is by using gravel, and if you want to have the natural beauty of gravel without any of the work, StoneSet is how you achieve it. By laying stones bound by a polyurethane resin, not only do you have the beautiful look of nature instead of concrete – though none of the maintenance.
In addition to its beauty and ease of maintenance, this kind of upgrade to your driveway has other selling points. Gravel driveways provide natural drainage, making it unnecessary to install additional gutters along the curb. StoneSet is a green material, and thus its application does no harm to the surrounding soil. It's long-lasting, easy to upkeep, and it will definitely be an investment that shows returns.
