The Pros And Cons Of A Half-Circle Asphalt Driveway

Blog

Having an asphalt driveway installed on your property is an exciting thing. This one change will alter both the functionality and appeal of the property, and you have to be careful about the choices you make. Many homeowners are infatuated with the idea of having a half-circle driveway installed, and it is for good reason. Take a look at some of the pros and cons of these driveways to help you make the best decision. 

Pro: The half-circle drive will give you more room to park. 

If there are multiple drivers in your house, having a half-circle driveway installed will serve you well. These driveways work really well in multi-car households because there is more room to park and it is easier for drivers to get in and out without having to ask another family member to move their car. These driveways are especially advantageous during times you are hosting gatherings at your home for your family and friends. 

Con: The half-circle driveway can be more expensive to install. 

When you hire a paving contractor to install a blacktop driveway for you, you will be charged per square foot of asphalt used to install the driveway. In most cases, the half-circle driveway is going to take up more square footage, so it is probably going to cost you a little more overall. 

Pro: Half-circle driveways can up the value of your home. 

Half-circle driveways have this certain level of status when they are paired with a home. If everyone else in the neighborhood has a regular and straight driveway, your half-circle drive is bound to impress, but it may also allow you to fetch more on the market if you decide to sell your home. It is not uncommon for home building contractors to install a half-circle drive if they want a property to have a bit of luxury appeal so they can charge a little more for a property. 

Con: Half-circle driveways can take up more of your lawn space. 

These driveways work out best on properties where there is ample yard space in the front of the house or wherever the driveway will be installed. For the majority of your lawn to be taken up by pavement because you opt for a half-circle driveway in spite of a small yard can make things look a bit odd. Talk to the paving contractor about the space you have available and if a half-circle layout would be the best decision for your property beforehand.
