5 Advantages Of A Resin Bound Surface
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.  

High durability

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.  

Attractive appearance

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. The material also provides a smooth finish because the resin mixture holds the stones together. This provides a gravelly appearance without the irritation of cracking or displacement.  

Low maintenance

Maintaining a resin surface is simple because of its layout and durability. All you have to do is pressure wash it every so often and keep it clear of debris. Also, the material doesn’t support weed growth, so plants can be brushed away. At Premier Surfacing, we provide a variety of surfacing options to help find the ideal driveway for you.
