Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a resin bound driveway and a resin bonded driveway?

Resin Bound
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 Bonded
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.
