Using Pavers and Masonry to Increase Your Home’s Value

If you’re thinking about selling your home, you definitely want to get the most out of it. Getting top dollar for your house means making repairs and improvements. One way of increasing its value is to make use of masonry and pavers to improve the overall look of the home and add new outdoor spaces. Here are some ways you can use pavers and masonry to increase your home’s value.

Add or Update the Patio

Pavers are often used in patios. If you don’t have a back patio, adding one can improve the value of your home since it gives you a space to entertain outdoors. A simple patio may add a little value, but you can do more to truly up the appeal of your home. Add in a fire pit, retaining wall that doubles as a sitting area, or even an outdoor kitchen to truly make an amazing patio that potential homebuyers will fall in love with.

Do a Paver Drive Instead of Concrete

Creating your driveway out of pavers instead of concrete makes your home visually different from all the others on the block and can improve your curb appeal. Pavers do more than just look different, though. They’re just as durable, if not more so, than concrete. They also don’t stain as easily. If one paver were to break, you simply replace that paver instead of pouring an entirely new drive, so it’s much cheaper to maintain.

Redo the Exterior of Your Home in a Stone Veneer

If the outside of your home appears dated or simply needs a change, consider adding a stone veneer instead of just a new coat of paint. Stone veneer can make any home look incredibly elegant, but unlike true stone, it’s much more affordable and easier to install. Veneers comes in a number of different looks and colors, so you’re sure to find something that fits with the rest of your home.
