Resin driveways guide
Permeable resin bound driveways (sometimes called resin bonded driveways) have become more popular in the last few years. Resin bound driveways create the effect of fine gravel but are a completely bonded unit. They allow water to penetrate easily but can support themselves with ease.
6 Reasons you should consider a resin bound driveway
1.It looks great
With a choice of different colours and textures available, resin bound driveways can be a wonderful addition to most contemporary housing.
Bonded resin is highly resistant to weather and to wear and tear. It won’t fade in the sun of be damaged by frost in the winter.
When laid properly by a trusted resin bound installer, a driveway can have a lifespan of over 35 years. This puts in up there with far more expensive surfaces like granite.
4. Its easy to maintain
With a solid base of compacted hardcore and a weed membrane, there is no chance of even the strongest weeds getting through. If it gets dirty all that is needed is a wash down with a hose. Resin bound pebbles are one of the easiest driveway surfaces to maintain.
5.Highly permeable and good for drainage
Allowing water to easily soak through into the base layers below makes resin bound driveways a great option. They will not gather water apart from in extreme cases and whats more you will not need planning permission as they keep run off to a minimum.
6. It keeps its cool
Unlike asphalt and other dark surfaces, resin bound stones don’t retain excessive amounts of heat. This is both good for the environment and for your feet on hot summers days.
How to prepare the ground for your resin driveway
It is important to make sure your new driveway is build on the right stuff. If you ignore this step or find a contractor who will just do anything to give you a low price you may suffer in the long run. The wrong base can cause a few problems including breaking the law, deforming your driveway and causing large puddles to form.
The base of most driveways needs to be solid but permeable. So laying it on top of old paving or a concrete base is out of the question. If this is what’s already there then you many need to have it removed before hand.
Most contractors will choose a base of compacted hardcore which will allow good drainage and ample support for the surface. It also wont move over time. This should be atleast 10 cm thick to work well.
