New Driveways – How to add value to your property with a new driveway

Driveways play an important function in any home, providing space for off road parking, improving the curb appeal of your property and adding value when it comes time to sell.

Why do people invest in a new driveway?

A new stylish driveway can help you to make a good first impression on visitors to your home, and can impress potential buyers or renters for your property. As a drive is the first thing a buyer will see, if the driveway is in disrepair, viewers may think the rest of the house is at the same standard.

Even if you don’t intend to sell your home anytime soon a new driveway can add value when you do decide to move, and the extra parking space and smart appearance of a new driveway can be enjoyed for years. Everything from plain and functional to a creative design with hard landscaping can be achieved.

How much value can a new driveway add to your home?

Typically adding a driveway to a property can add a 5-10% increase in value to a property (according to this report on Virgin Money). Based on the UK average house price that is an increase in value of around £19,000. This puts installing a new driveway into a property up alongside some of the best home improvements to add value.
