7 Reasons To Choose A Resin Bound Driveway
Your driveway is the first thing people notice when they visit your home. If it looks old and tired, maybe it is time to invest in a new, long-lasting option. A Resin Bound driveway is created by mixing resin with decorative aggregate, to create a hard-wearing surface that is more eco-friendly than traditional surfacing options.  Here are some benefits of installing a Resin Bound driveway:

Easy installation 

When choosing a gravel or concrete driveway, this can take days to install. Whereas Resin driveways take just a few hours if you have a team of experienced and efficient installers. 


Resin Bound driveways are relatively low cost both initially, and long-term when compared to paving and other driveway solutions. Over the long term, they are amongst the most affordable driveway options available as they require minimal maintenance. 

Aesthetically pleasing 

Resin Bound driveways are aesthetically pleasing, sustainable, and practical. They are available in different colours, meaning you can easily pick a colour that matches your desired results. Resin Bound driveways also offer a smooth finish, making it ideal for bicycles, children, disabled access and pushchairs. 


Even though the UK doesn’t have extreme weather conditions, you still may want to consider durability when selecting a paving type for your driveway.  Rain and excess heat can still take effect over time, especially on concrete and asphalt driveways. However, Resin Bound driveways are durable to extreme weather conditions and still appear smooth, in any weather conditions. Choosing a more durable option means it will need less maintenance and upkeep over the years - making it an extremely cost-effective option. 


Resin Bound driveways come with natural drainage properties. Since it is fully permeable, water is able to drain through the surface. That means you will not see water pooling on top of your resin driveway and it also has environmental benefits in preventing flooding in the surrounding area.

Reduces ‘heat island’ effect 

Heat islands occur when hard surfaces such as tarmac, concrete and asphalt, absorb and store the heat, which causes a high probability of cracking. Conversely, due to the permeable nature of a Resin Bound driveway, it allows heat to pass through it and escape from the surface, reducing surface temperature and allowing it to stay cool, and resist cracking. 


Types of Resin Bound are made using recycled materials such as shredded tires or plastic straws, making a Resin Bound driveway a more eco-friendly choice compared to other options available. They are manufactured out of naturally occurring marble and aggregate. So if your decisions as a consumer are often driven by the environmental impact of a product - consider Resin Bound driveways.
