Whether you’re thinking about moving to another home or you simply want to give your house some much-needed updates, there are many reasons to give your property a facelift. Did you know that rubber paving is a simple, effective, and eco-friendly method of increasing the value of your home by making it more appealing to a new generation of homebuyers?
#1: Eco-Friendly Enhancements Are Becoming a Must-Have
As millennials take over the home-buying market, current homeowners are slowly adapting to the needs and priorities of the generation. One of the must-haves on new or young homeowners’ lists are eco-friendly features, such as solar energy, LEED certification, and the use of recycled materials. Rubbertech pavement is made out of 100% recycled rubber that would have otherwise been left in North America’s growing waste piles.
#2: Uniformity & Cleanliness Boost Curb Appeal
No one wants to move into a new home that needs repair or takes forever to clean. Fortunately, Rubbertech paving will look like new for over 20 years. There is no need to worry about surprise cracks in your driveway come spring or paying for those holes to be filled every few years. Since rubber resurfacing is elastic and flexible, it can withstand the harsh winter months without damage. The uniformity of rubber paving instantly boosts curb appeal. Plus, rubber pavement is simple to clean!
#3: Year-Round Safety Appeals to New Families
Families with young children have a newfound appreciation for safety features of houses. Suddenly, they realize how many things in a home can present a safety hazard for kids. Homeowners want their children to be as safe as possible, which is why rubber paving is the perfect solution for pool decks, driveways, and playgrounds. While parents should never leave their child unattended by the pool, they will appreciate the fact that their rubber pool deck presents a safe no-slip grip like never before.
#4: A Move-In Ready Backyard is a Definite Perk
An unfinished or boring backyard can be a deal-breaker for some families, especially those who have kids or dogs that need their outdoor space. By installing a rubber pool deck, pathway, and patio—all to a pleasing colour that matches the aesthetic of your outdoor space—your yard will look professionally maintained, clean, and modern. Rubber paving offer a no-mess, no-maintenance alternative to stone or cement, plus there is no need to remove the original surface.
#5: Durable Paving Equals Low Long-Term Costs
We mentioned that rubber pavement looks just as polished at 20 years as it does at two, but did you know that it is also 30 to 40 percent cheaper than brick, concrete, or pavers (not to mention safer, more eco-friendly, and more durable). And if you’re installing rubber pavement to increase the value of your home before you put it on the market, this low-cost upgrade will be reflected in the final house price, making it more appealing to potential buyers.
