The driveway takes up a significant portion of your lawn, and is the first and last thing visitors see when entering and exiting your home. For this reason, it’s crucial your driveway is well-paved, safe, and aesthetically pleasing. With rubber paving made from recycle tire rubber, you can have it all. From the experts at Rubbertech Resurfacing, an eco-friendly paving service in southern British Columbia, here are a few ways you can benefit from a recycled rubber driveway:
Reduce Your Ecological Footprint
If you’re looking for smart ways to stay eco-friendly around the home, rubber paving is your best bet. Unlike traditional paving companies, who demolish old driveways before pouring asphalt or concrete, rubber paving doesn’t require your old driveway to be torn up. Instead, the new surface is poured on top. This saves time, money, and reduces the amount of waste dumped in landfills.
Boost Curb Appeal
Driveways aren’t normally something people spend much time looking at. With rubber paving, which is available in a wide variety of colours, your driveway will be turning heads, all the way down the block. Its durable and long-lasting properties prevent unsightly cracks from forming and pesky weeds from growing. Rubber paving can also boost the resale value of your home.
The return of investment on asphalt or concrete driveways is…unimpressive, to say the least. Although the initial cost of rubber paving may be slightly higher, it lasts for over 20 years, so you’ll only have to replace it once. What’s more, rubber’s flexible surface adjusts to any fluctuations in the ground, so you won’t be faced with tedious repairs.
A Safe Choice
In Canada, we’re no strangers to icy and snow-covered roads. Despite constant shovelling and snowplowing, our driveways often remain covered in snow. To avoid dangerous trips, slips, and falls, you need more than just salt and sand. Rubber offers a solid, grippy surface guaranteed to keep you and your family safe. What’s more, it’s dark shade attracts sunlight and helps melt snow.
Durable and Reliable
With rubber paving, crumbling, cracking driveways are a thing of the past. In most of Canada, temperatures fluctuate significantly throughout the year. Rubber is a fantastically supple material that can freeze and thaw without buckling or cracking. It is mold and mildew-resistant, and has a non-porous surface for easy cleaning.
Rubber paving isn’t just for driveways; it’s a great option for splash parks, patios, walkways, apartment entrances, pool decks, and medians.
