Add a distinctive flair to your house with Georgia Crete

Unfortunately, driveways are often overlooked leaving a less than strong first impression. Georgia Crete’s wide variety of texture, color and patterns can make a dramatic difference in your driveways giving your home the visual curb appeal you desire. Everyone will stop to admire your driveway. It really will be the crowning touch to the curb appeal of your home.

Let Georgia Crete offer you our expert, friendly and objective advice to enhance your homes curb appeal and increase its value.

Concrete driveways are the only choice for a homeowner or business owner these days, as they are stronger, longer lasting and lower maintenance than any other driveway surface, and your options in colors and designs are only limited by your imagination (or budget). Concrete is a much better alternative to asphalt, which can become soft in the hot sun and is therefore susceptible to ruts and other problems.

Homeowners of course take pride in the exterior of their home, and a driveway is the first thing that visitors will see. It takes up a large amount of your yards space and thus is not just a road to your front door, it’s a style choice and the first impression of a home’s general quality of construction and design.

Increase in resale value. Decorative stamped concrete adds curb appeal and aesthetic value to your home, allowing you to maximize the return on your investment. Plain gray concrete driveways are a thing of the past.

If you’re on a tight budget, you can still achieve impressive results by mixing stamped concrete with fields of less-expensive plain concrete, such as a installing a driveway with only a border of stamped concrete. Or do the work in stages, maybe tackling the front driveway and walkway one year followed by your backyard patio or pool deck a year or two later. Your patience will be rewarded.

Your front yard landscape design should be inviting and should encourage guests to approach your home. Driveways, sidewalks, and pathways are the most effective way to achieve this.
