Types of Resin Patios
Resin patios are a surface type that consists of a mixture of natural aggregates and resin to form a patio space for either residential or commercial buildings.
Resin patios, though relatively new, have become a favorite for homeowners and real estate developers for the unique touch of class it adds to the entire architecture.
Resin patios are indeed a recommended option to transform any outdoor space as they offer stylish alternatives to other types of surfacing.
A patio of course provides a space to relax around the garden and what better way to create a relaxation space but to use resin which offers more in terms of designs, patterns and styles. With a resin patio, you can customize the design to fit your choice thus giving you total control of your outdoor decoration.
Resin patios do not only offer elegance and beauty but are also a very durable option. Their surface is not only permeable to allow for surface run off but also flexible making it less susceptible to crack which is a huge advantage it has over other flooring options.
Before the advent of resin, patios were usually paved and this creates a problem to keep them in tiptop shape as it requires extensive cleaning to get rid of weeds and other debris.
Resin patios on the other hand are resistant to growth of weeds and mosses. It is therefore very easy to get rid of them should they appear. You will most likely only need to brush the surface and you are good to go.
Resin patios do not scuff as a result of their smooth surface and will not swell, dip or submerge since water or other fluids cannot be contained in them.
Additionally, if UV stable resins were used in the installation of the resin bound patio, then it will neither change its color nor fade over time.
