When you decide to have a new driveway installed, your first big decision will be what type of material you want. While there are a lot of popular materials out there, cobblestone offers some unique benefits. Here’s a closer look at why you’ll smile every time you walk outside.

Why You Should Choose Cobblestones for Your Driveway

1. Aesthetics

These pavers have a charm that you can’t get with other common driveway materials, such as concrete or asphalt. The driveway takes up a large footprint at the front of the home, so it has a big impact on your curb appeal. An interesting and beautiful natural stone will instantly add character that elevates the property’s beauty.

Because it’s so aesthetically appealing, you can expect to get much of your investment back if you ever decide to sell. That attractive first impression will be important for buyers.

2. Durability

cobblestoneWhen you think of cobblestones, the streets of old-world Europe or early America likely come to mind. These streets were paved hundreds of years ago and are still in great condition today.

This is because these natural stones are extremely durable. They can withstand the weight of vehicles, centuries of weathering, and staining, so they only gain more character over time. You may never need to pave your driveway again.

3. Easy Repairs

Not only are the stones durable, but if something is damaged, the repairs are also easy. When one paver is damaged or stained, the single stone can be removed and replaced. There’s no need to refinish or repave the entire driveway, as would be necessary with the same type of damage to a concrete driveway.
