3 Signs You Need To Renovate Your Walkway

When you’ve been living in a home for a few years, renovating certain areas becomes necessary. As a home services company that specializes in paver installation, we meet clients who want to renovate their walkways, driveways, or retaining walls every day.

Some want to transform their home from average to extraordinary, while others simply want to revitalize their hardscapes due to wear and tear.

Why Do You Need to Renovate?

Walkways play a big role in modern architecture, and are considered to be one of the most important elements of any property. Not only are do they enhance your home’s design, but they also provide safe passage to you and your guests.

However, an old, damaged walkway can do more harm than good. It reflects poorly on your property and ruins the curb appeal of your house. Also, it can lead to a slip, tripor fall accident, that can result in injuries.

When Do You Need to Renovate?

If your home’s walkway is old or doesn’t go with the other components of your property, consider renovating it by hiring an experienced paver installation company. Here are three key signs that your walkway needs a revamp.

Uneven Walkways

Walkways are built to last for several years, but they experience regular wear and tear over time. Your property’s walkway is most likely made of concrete and, overtime, it can crack, sink or get pushed up by the roots of large trees growing nearby.

Eventually, your walkway will become uneven and possibly unstable, which can be hazardous to people who visit your home. Upgrading your walkway with pavers can give the pathway to your home new life.

Fix or Replace

Sometimes, small cracks and dents can be easily handled with flexible sealant filling. Sealant prevents the deterioration from spreading, even though excessive pressure can bring back the problem to a much larger degree. If you tried a couple of repairs but the problem still persists, it’s better to renovate to avoid a massive dent to your wallet.

Shifting Paver Walkways

Regardless of the material used to build your walkway, there may come a time when it shifts, which can, again, create a dangerous tripping hazard. You could try fixing it yourself by replacing the dirt underneath your pavers to re-stabilize them, but it’s not an effective long-term solution—especially if they weren’t installed correctly the first time. For a more stable, long-lasting fix, you may want to completely renovate your walkway with a Certified Concrete Paver Installer like Paver Connection.
