Choosing the right material for your driveway is an important decision. An immaculate driveway can make your home stand out, as well as add value if you plan on selling in the future. For a natural look, resin bound driveways are a good choice. The material uses a mixture of resin and organic aggregate to create a stony surface. A resin bound driveway combines style with strength, which is why we’re listing five advantages.
There are many reasons why you should choose resin over concrete, asphalt, gravel, or block paving for your driveway. Resin allows water to penetrate directly into the earth. Because of this, there are no puddles left behind. Resin does not crack, and you do not need to worry about loose stones. And unlike gravel, resin does not allow weeds to creep up. Installation of resin takes up to 48 hours, after which you can start using your new driveway. Versatility is a huge advantage of resin driveways. There is a variety of colours and textures you can choose from.
- A resin bound driveway is laid over an existing tarmac or concrete surface. This makes the surface very durable and stops it from being worn down. The resin is resistant to UV light, so it won’t lose any colour or break down. Not only is a resin bound surface protected against wear and tear, it will retain its pristine appearance for years to come.
- The mix of materials within a resin bound surface creates a high degree of porosity. This allows water to run off easily, benefiting nearby vegetation. Any plants will have good access to the water, promoting growth. The porous nature of resin bound surfacing also means that freeze damage will be lessened.
- Resin bound surfacing is one of the most versatile options on the market. This is because of its non-slip qualities, durability and long lasting nature. It can be used for any number of surfaces, ranging from footpaths to wheelchair ramps.
If you want a beautiful driveway then a resin bound surface is a great choice. The stones are natural and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. This allows for a creative approach and you’ll be able to design your driveway in a bespoke way.
