You may have heard that your first impression can have a lasting impact.


The driveway is the entrance to your home and gives the first impression as to what potential buyers and visitors can expect inside, therefore an attractive asphalt driveway can absolutely increase the value of your home.  


How Does Your Asphalt Driveway Add Value?

Every homeowner knows that remodelling and renovation projects are one of the best ways to increase the value of a property. However, some wonder if a driveway can increase the value of their home. 


When putting your home up for sale or planning to do work to get the market value up, you should take into consideration having an asphalt driveway laid or resurfaced


A well-installed and well-maintained asphalt driveway can boost the value of your home and speed up the process of the home sale. 


Asphalt driveways are not only affordable and durable, weather-resistant, and long-lasting, they are also great looking. On top of that, they are stain-resistant which can help maintain an attractive look of your house over the years. 


When comparing an asphalt driveway to a concrete one, it becomes apparent that a concrete driveway is more prone to damages such as cracking and is also easier to stain and harder to clean.


Any damage such as unattractive cracks or potholes can be easily repaired on asphalt driveways.


Upgrading a Semi-Rural Perth Driveaway

Three asphalt colours available in WA – red oxide, brown, and black.


Our rural clients have long realised that well-installed and designed asphalt driveways can not only add curb appeal to their properties but also effectively connect transport networks of rural communities.  


We have helped thousands of Perth’s outer suburb’s residents replace their gravel driveways and bring their semi-rural driveway ideas to life through large and long asphalt driveways


We have also worked on technically challenging projects including upgrading deteriorating semi-rural driveways on an incline in Perth hills.


The semi-rural driveways can be reshaped to reduce the steep gradient that could catch the bottom of vehicles and designed using coloured asphalt and kerbing.


Our asphalt driveways come in three attractive colours that will suit any landscaping. 


Coloured asphalt is a cost-effective way to enhance a driveway surface, whilst adding a touch of vibrancy to your premises. One of the most popular choices is red asphalt that matches beautifully with natural bush and properties in semi-rural areas of Perth.


See how we’ve used red asphalt in our past driveway and car park jobs in Perth.



Value Added By An Asphalt Driveway


Many of our residential clients choose asphalt to surface their driveway because of its appealing look, durability, and resistance to damage from tree roots, ants, and heavy vehicles. 


Since the driveway typically takes up a lot of the front yard, a well-installed and designed one considerably adds to the home’s curb appeal.


A visually attractive asphalt driveway creates an inviting path to your property, sets a standard for your home, and attracts potential buyers.


Replacing an unreliable gravel driveway or resurfacing an existing one is not only an attractive option for your home, but it is also affordable.
