It's Artistic

One basic advantage of colouring your concrete is that it adds a visually appealing touch to your home exterior. Unlike regular grey concrete, you can get it in a multitude of appealing and eye-grabbing hues. Beige, white, yellow, or even colours like blue or red are all possibilities!

You can make this even more appealing by adding concrete formwork to your driveway. Concrete stamping takes exposed aggregate concrete and makes it more interesting by adding texture.

A great colour/texture combination makes your home stand out and boosts curbside appeal.

It's Low-Maintenance

All concrete driveways are fairly easy to maintain, and coloured options are no exception to this rule. All you need to do is sweep away debris and clean up liquids that you spill. If you do those tasks, concrete is among the most durable materials that you can invest in.
 
You also will need to reseal the driveway every 1-5 years or so and patch up cracks when they appear. However, colour doesn't make either of these tasks more challenging. Sealant doesn't care about colour and infrequent cracks can be filled in such a way that they blend in with the surrounding hue.

It's Long-Lasting

A well-maintained coloured concrete driveway can last for about 25-50 years assuming that you keep them in good shape. This is about 10-30 years longer than asphalt driveways last.
 

While you may pay a little more up-front for coloured concrete than you would asphalt alternatives, infrequent replacement means money saved. You will be shelling out less in the long-term.

It Increases Property Value

Stamped and coloured concrete also upgrades the value of your home if you ever intend to sell. This is especially true if you get a hue that matches your landscaping. For example, if you use white flagstone throughout your yard, white concrete may provide a seamless and cohesive aesthetic that both you and potential buyers love.

You also can raise your home value by matching your siding. If your home is robin's-egg blue, you can incorporate a different but matching shade of blue into your concrete. This is ideal because it boosts both your curbside appeal and retail value.
