Upgrade your home’s kerb appeal with a low maintenance Resin Drive.
First impressions count, and a resin driveway is just about the best way to make sure your home makes the right one.
Resin driveways are made using a combination of clear resin, with a mix of small aggregate stone in a blend of colours for the ideal finish for your home. Depending on whether you want a traditional or modern finish, you could choose between a resin bonded or a resin bound driveway, and both can be customised for the perfect design for you.
Resin driveways are 10 times more environmentally friendly than traditional alternatives like concrete because they are permeable, making them a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS), and compliant with the little-known SuDS regulations – so you don’t need planning permission to install a resin driveway!
Because they are permeable, it means that water can seep through the surface and drain away naturally, the same way that it can with grass. This means that a resin driveway is significantly less likely to flood or hold surface water and is better for the natural environment as a whole.
Non UV Stable
Resin Bonded Drives
UV Stable resin is designed to ensure that the harmful effects of UV radiation from the sun on resin don’t affect your drive.
Non-UV Stable resin is the first kind of resin used by the resin industry in the UK. It is more often used today in commercial installations.
A resin bound drive is made through combining a mix of aggregate stone and resin together before laying the drive, for a smooth finish.
A resin bonded drive is made by first laying the resin on top of the drive base, before then adding the aggregate stone, so a more gravel like finish.
When it comes to the resin drive industry, there are less manufacturers of resin and aggregate products that you as a customer might need to consider, and more suppliers of those products that you would work with. With that in mind, we’ve put together a little bit of information on some of the most popular manufacturers in the industry to help you find your way around.
As with any kind of home improvement we know you’ll have some questions, especially for one like a brand new drive you’ll be looking at every day. We’ve got together a list of a few of our most common questions and answered them for you, all in one place – so you can be a little more informed on the right drive for you.
A resin drive is a type of drive surface that is made by mixing a combination of aggregate stone materials together with clear resin. This mixture is laid onto an already prepared base and will create a smooth, sturdy and good-looking driveway.
Yes. Resin drives are considered one of the most environmentally friendly ways you can surface your drive, especially compared to traditional materials. They can be made in a permeable way, which allows them to reduce water runoff, and support natural groundwater discharge.
Incredibly easy. A resin drive requires very little maintenance. A regular sweep of the drive and an occasional jet wash will keep your drive looking as good as new for a very long time.
They are! One of the great things about resin drives is that there are so many different coloured and sized aggregate stones to choose from that allow you to pick the perfect finish for your home. On top on that but because of the way the aggregates are mixed, you can combine them to make patterns and pathways within the same resin drive.
