Kerbside appeal is a phrase often used by property developers, one that is designed to improve the aesthetic and thus financial value of a property. First impressions matter, so having that kerbside appeal and making the right impression is at the front of many property developers minds. The choice of paving that you have at your property adds to this appeal and modern developers are using more and more natural products as desired by buyers. The natural stone and slate paving slabs available from Ardosia Slate
have seen a significant increase in demand by developers looking to promote a more natural look for their properties.
Natural products are have seen an increasing demand in recent years due to their superior aesthetics, combined with performance that is often comparable with man made products and this is clearly the case with pre-fabricated versus slate paving slabs. Slate does not decompose naturally and with proper care, it will last a lifetime and longer. It is a hard wearing and durable product in plentiful supply and can be cut to standard sizes or to specific dimensions as required by the customer. One of the great benefits of using a natural product is that they are all unique, wood and stone are two great examples where grains are visible and imperfections identify the product as natural.
It is not just slate that has seen improving demand but other natural materials such as limestone and granite. Limestone itself can be supplied in a range of colours and is a great choice where you want to add a lighter coloured element to any paved area. Popular with modern and contemporary developments, natural limestone slabs can also be finished with a natural effect, tumbled or brushed as required and can also be cut to specific patterns as demanded by the client. Standard sizes are readily available from Ardosia Slate
with a range of patterns widely available on the internet so that homeowners can easily create a unique look that enhances their exterior space and the value of their property.
