It doesn’t matter if you own a business, manage a property, or simply have a home of your own. If you properly maintain and invest in your property, you likely want to keep all associated costs to a minimum. Which is why we’re here to help make navigating and planning for those costs a little easier. Especially if that cost is an asphalt driveway! Follow our budgeting tips for a new asphalt driveway to get started.
Time Is Money
Your time is valuable. Don’t waste it meeting with contractors who may not be the right fit for you. This means researching companies ahead of time; do they have a portfolio? How do customers feel about them in reviews? Do they provide free quotations? Don’t forget to inquire about licensing, insurance, and ensure they have all the necessary equipment. .
A New Asphalt Driveway Is A Long Term Investment
When beginning your research on costs, it may feel like a lot of money. But bear in mind that a new asphalt driveway is a long term investment. This new driveway may last well over a decade, if not twice that. This makes saving along the way a little easier. However, there is always the possibility of unexpected damage and major projects that need to be done – driveway or household. You can better weather these proverbial ”storms” by looking ahead and developing a budget that anticipates them.
Prevention is Proven
Avoid high risks and future concerns by prioritizing preventative maintenance. This allows you to plan ahead and prioritize any larger projects that might need to be done in the future. Sealcoating is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to extend the service life of your driveway, and only needs to be done every 3 to 5 years. Filling cracks as soon as they happen can also prevent water penetration. Keep some filler on hand and always remember to include driveway maintenance in your budget.
