Resin Bound Surfacing
It is no secret that consumers are getting tired of the dull driveways and instead turning to sophisticated and appealing looks.
Why should I choose a Resin Bound Surface over traditional methods?
A natural and stylish look on the exterior space is mandatory for anyone yearning to usher in a warm and an inviting energy. This is exactly what Resin Bound Surfacing does for you. Choosing it will give you more benefits such as:
A resin bound driveway is laid over a tarmac or concrete surface. Accordingly, the surfaces are strong enough to withstand pressure from the vehicles and invasion from organic materials. The long-lasting surface could save you a lot of money.
Flexibility of Design
You can adapt the resin bound surface to a design of your choice. A range of colours from glasses and stones can be provided to create a stunning look for your exterior space. Note that glasses are likely to be ideal for spaces that are not subject to high pressure from vehicles. You still have the option of mixing the smaller sizes of aggregates with stones to enhance the strength and uniqueness. Whether in a commercial or residential setting, the surfacing will always create an incredible appeal.
Easy To Maintain
Unlike other materials, resin will bind with the surface in a way that it will be easily to maintain. It can resist weed, petrol, and oil spills. Even after many years, you will not see discoloured or faded areas.
Ideal for a Range of Purposes
The surfaces can be used in an array of applications such as footpaths, walkways for swimming pools, and driveways. This is because the surface has a non-slip nature. It also gives you a smooth finish since the resin mixture is designed to hold the stones tightly. Chances of stones scattering underfoot are highly unlikely.
Quick to Apply
You don’t have to wait for long periods before a resin bound surface is completed. An average-sized driveway can be completed in two days. It will be strong enough to withstand foot traffic after six hours and as such, you do not have to worry that your movements are restricted to certain places. It is also helps save on costs of labour.
The mix of materials gives the resin bound surfaces a high degree of porosity. Water can run off easily from your driveway and other areas, which in turn benefits your vegetation.
You will benefit greatly if you go for resin bound surfacing. Saving on costs, creating an appealing exterior and reducing maintenance. However, you should find qualified, experienced and reliable service providers who can:

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.
