Neighborhood associations are great because they make it easier to create a unified appearance throughout a neighborhood. All the driveways are uniform concrete or asphalt. The homes all look the same or at least similar. The landscaping is all done by one company so there too, a uniform look. Choosing a single commercial paving contractor to handle all the association’s asphalt and concrete needs is the right move to maintain the look of the neighborhood as well.
In addition to keeping the roads and driveways in a uniform look, if you choose the right commercial paving contractor, they may be able to add a lot more character to the neighborhood. Instead of going with the plain-Jane gray concrete, why not go with something with a little more pizzazz? Decorative concrete for driveways, entryways, and sidewalks is an aesthetically pleasing way to add class and character to the meticulously designed and manicured neighborhood.
Decorative concrete can be dyed and textured in a lot of different ways that opens up many new options to get the exact look that you’re after. Use the colors to coordinate with the entire scheme that you want. Use the textures and patterns to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal to new and old residents. One very positive aspect of decorative concrete is that you get the durability of concrete, but you aren’t stuck with a single, grey look any longer. You can even mix and match colors, textures, and patterns of the decorative concrete so each are has a unique look. That way, pools, sidewalks, driveways, and entryways all look different and have a separate aesthetic appeal for potential buyers who strive for at least some individuality.
Decorative concrete can even be used inside the homes as feature pieces or just the flooring if you so desire. There is almost nothing that concrete can’t be used for and it doesn’t have to be cold and industrial, it can be warm and welcoming. Concrete in a decorative form is an aesthetically pleasing and durable building material that can tie a neighborhood together quite nicely.
