Resin bound or something else
When it comes to having a new resin driveway installed, there are many important factors to be considered. There are a good number of options on today’s market: Brick weave driveways can be expensive and the maintenance of them can be quite time consuming if it is to stand the test of time. Asphalt driveways are usually only one colour and don’t have as much kerb appeal. Loose gravel driveways always suffer from constant movement and loss of the material. They are also very susceptible to weed growth. Concrete driveways can be stamped or dyed to add variation but still lack the appeal of a resin driveway. They too can also suffer from moss and algae growth.
The many advantages of using Resin for driveways
Resin bound driveways are very resilient, durable and attractive to look at and are extremely easy to maintain. They are also available in countless different colour blends and aggregates. In addition, bespoke colours and blends of aggregate are popular, can be unique to you and also complement the building they surround perfectly. The best resin for driveways paths and patios is completely resistant to UV light which means that the colour of the beautiful aggregate will never fade or discolour. Resin is a strong, reliable and non-slip surface which makes it safer for the elderly, children and wheelchair users. Blended correctly, it does not matter if you have a lot of traffic either vehicles who park, or foot traffic over the installed driveway, as it is a sound and durable surface which can last much longer than those made of traditional materials such as tarmac and block paving.
Resin bound driveways paths or patios can also be installed onto an existing sub-base as an overlay if the existing surface is deemed suitable. This can make the whole installation more economical for the budget conscious consumer. Another advantage of choosing resin for driveways paths and patios over the more traditional methods and materials is that in the majority of areas, due to the porosity of the product, planning permission is not required. Again this can save time and money and makes this a perfect option.
Professionally installed resin driveways should have a porous base which makes them SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) compliant. This means that any surface water on the driveway will immediately drain through and naturally pass into the sub soil directly below. Puddles of water become a thing of the past and of course this action alone can inhibit moss and algae growth.
