When you build a cabin or vacation house in the woods, you need to decide on the right type of driveway for your purposes. While you could possibly choose a gravel lane to get to your home, gravel isn't the best choice, especially for a cabin that you only use occasionally. Instead, asphalt paving could be a better idea since it will need little maintenance. Here are some reasons to have an asphalt driveway put in from the road to your getaway home.
Flooding has been a very serious issue in most of the Southern states. A few Northern states have had a little trouble with flooding as well, particularly near major waterways. If you are not required to carry flood insurance in your state, you might want to reconsider it if you have experienced any flooding near or in your home. Additionally, if you have been told by city, county, or state officials that you now need to elevate your property, you might be feeling anxious or worried about how to afford this major change to your property.
