The home is the single largest investment most people will ever make, and many of us are looking for simple and inexpensive ways to protect and increase the value of that investment. Whether you are replacing tiles in the bathroom, painting your walls or undertaking larger jobs such as replacing the roof or adding other desirable amenities, most people tend to focus their efforts on the inside of their homes. This year, why not think about your home's curb appeal and increase the value of your home from the outside in?
Your driveway is the welcome mat to your home, and a cracked, faded and stained driveway doesn't do much to make a good first impression when guests arrive. There are a number of products on the market you can use to repair, protect and beautify your driveway; however, not all products are created equally. Here are some points to consider when looking for a driveway sealant that is best suited for the average homeowner:
Ease of application
Look for a product with a simple application. There is no need to waste time pouring product from cumbersome pails; look for products that you can simply and easily roll-on.
Your time is important to you and you need a place to park your car, so look for a sealer that will dry in as short a time as possible. There are products available that will be drive-ready in 4 hours, so you can get back to enjoying your time off.
Home renovations can be messy – look for a product that cleans up easily with soap and water so you can relax and move on to other activities.
No one wants to do a job more than once; when looking for a driveway sealer look for a product that offers a minimum of a 5 year warranty. You take pride in the appearance of your home, so you should use a product that offers you a long lasting guarantee.
There are products available on the market, such as Rust-Oleum's EPOXYSHIELD®, that offer home owners a simple do-it-yourself solution that will repair, protect and beautify your driveway for years to come. With simple roll-on application, soap and water cleanup and a 4 hour drying time, enhancing your home's curb appeal and increasing your home's value has never been easier.
