The Benefits of a Resin Bound Pathway
At Ace Resin, we not only provide a stunning range of resin bound driveways and commercial surfacing, but we also provide stunning pathways.
When it comes to pathways, there are usually plenty of options available. However, what if you are looking for something that is both aesthetically pleasing, but also durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance?
Resin Bound Pathways are becoming popular with both business owners and those in domestic properties. Although there will be different reasons as to why people choose resin bound pathways, you can be assured that there are plenty of benefits that make the investment worthwhile.
What are the benefits of Resin Bound Pathways?
1.Resin Bound Pathways Don’t Fall Victim to Changing Seasons
Many of us will be used to sporadic weather changes, but this makes it difficult to maintain our pathways, unless those pathways are constructed from resin. This is because resin bonded surfacing can withstand the seasons, so there is therefore no chance of the paving becoming soft in the summer, or it freezing during the colder months.
When constructing pathways from other materials, there is a risk of there not being much choice when it comes to the aesthetics, be it texture or colour. Fortunately, our Resin Bound Pathways are very versatile when it comes to colour of your choice, and can be used for almost any project.
Regardless of whether you’re trying to install a modern look into your home, or you are aiming for a more nostalgic finish, there is no reason why you shouldn’t find what you’re looking for with resin bound.
3.It Lasts a Long Time
Although many of us may be focusing on the price when it comes to creating a pathway, we also need to ensure that the product we choose is able to offer value for money, otherwise, this could potentially affect future cost and maintenance.
Opting for our Resin Bound Pathways will not only ensure that your pathway is strong and durable, but it also gives you a solution that is going to last 25+ years. We also provide every customer a 10 year guarantee.
4.Less Maintenance Is Required
Those who have had pathways fitted in the past can probably testify that there can be some maintenance involved depending on the materials used. Some may find that they are constantly having to deal with weeding, whilst others may find that they are constantly clearing away stones and other debris.
Although you will need to clean your resin bound pathway, it’s a much quicker operation than cleaning pathways composed of other materials. Weeds cannot fit between the resin material, and debris does not show on the surface. However, if there was to be any spillages or materials on your resin pathway, this is extremely easy to clean using a jet washer.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing a resin bound pathway for your next choice from Ace Resin. If you’re looking to improve your home by taking advantage of resin bound pathways, or looking for a more resilient flooring solution for your business, then why not get in touch with us to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between a resin bound driveway and a resin bonded driveway?
Resin bound is an eco-friendly, highly porous paving solution for ground surfacing. It is a choice of decorative aggregates mixed with specialist resins then hand trowelled to give a flat smooth surface suitable for driveways, paths and patios.
Resin bond is laid in a different manner to resin bound materials. It involves applying a layer of resin to the existing surface, which aggregates are then scattered in to the top of. This gives a non-porous surface, which has a coarser finish and leaves a certain amount of loose stone on the final surface.
How long will a resin bound driveway last?
A resin bound driveway is a strong and durable surface, that is resistant to weather conditions. Comparable products like Tarmac or Asphalt can soften in the summer heat and freeze in cold of winter, they will also be damaged by UV light. Resin is much more stable than these alternatives performing well year round in some of the UK’s worst weather. Our driveways come with a 10 year guarantee and can last to a good standard for 25+ years.
Can I lay a resin driveway over my existing driveway?
This depends on the type and condition of your existing driveway. However, it should be laid on an appropriate sub-base of either asphalt or concrete.
Do I need planning permission for a resin driveway?
If you have an existing driveway then planning permission will not be required. For any newly installed driveways or extensions planning permission is required for surfaces such as traditional block paving, flags and tarmac.
