Resin bound surfaces are becoming the flooring system of choice away from traditional types of flooring like block paving, concrete, gravel, tarmac and decking. The reasons for this are evident as resin bound surfaces are more durable, prevent the growth of weed, require minimal maintenance, can be adapted to any shape and with the right material will not fade nor discolour on exposure to the UV rays of sunlight. They are also hardwearing and porous slowing for water to permeate through the surface and get into the water bed.

While these characteristics are rather more functional, its physical quality of being aesthetically appealing, being available in various exquisite colours, styles and feels while allowing artistic works such as family crests, logos, letterings or motifs, to be incorporated in them to suit the personality of anyone makes it difficult for anyone to walk past a resin bound surface without appreciating the elegance and stunning beauty provided by its smoothly laid and expertly finished aggregate colours. This simply means that there is a resin bound surface for everyone as there is no limit to the design options available with resin.

Our aggregate colours comes in various mixes such as greys, silver, off-whites, deep reds, soft yellows, deep golds, jet blacks, greens, dark browns, pinks, etc. which ensures that whatever the project is and whatever your preference is, you will have an aggregate colour perfect for your project. It is also very possible to create an artificially coloured stone although this is not advisable as the colour will gradually wear off over time.

Affecting A Resin Driveway Colour

It is at the mixing stage that the major work of creating an aggregate blend is affected. In the UK, natural aggregates are obtained mainly from two sources which are- Derbyshire Aggregates and Long Rake Spar.

From Derbyshire Aggregates, we are able to source aggregates, cobbles, pebbles, rockery, stone, rubber chippings, pebble dashing gravels, resin bonded gravel and rock salt. Long Rake Spa provides a wide range of aggregate granules and sands for both resin bound and resin bonded surfacing systems. These naturally sourced aggregates which come in a wide range of colours are then mixed with resin to create a high-quality finish.

FAQs

What Colours Do Resin Driveways Come In?

Resin driveways come in diverse colours, texture and styles, a function of the characteristics of the aggregates used for driveway. Aggregates come in blends of deep golds and soft yellow, elegant reds, silver or grey, monochrome whites, jet blacks, attractive pinks, creams and beiges, russet browns and greens. There is always a perfect resin bound aggregate for any type of resin bound surface project.

How Much Does A Resin Driveway Cost?

Several factors come into play when trying to determine the cost of a resin driveway. This makes it difficult to quote a cost per square metre for the project.

Usually, a resin driveway should cost around £40 per square metre upwards and this usually is dependent on the size of aggregates, type of existing surface and the amount of work (excavation or repair) that needs to be done before the actual installation, choice of material and cost, cost of labour and other logistics.

What Are The Pros And Cons Of A Resin Driveway?

There are many benefits in using a resin bound aggregate for your driveway and only a few drawbacks.

The Pros of a resin driveway are;

  • Resin driveways are cost effective.
  • They are easy to maintain.
  • They are SUDS compliant since they allow water to permeate through due to their porous nature.
  • They are quick to install and so can be used after 24hrs.
  • Resin driveways are durable and can last for more than 20years
  • They prevent the growth of weeds and moss.

Cons of a resin driveway

  • There are little or no official regulations which makes it easy for unlicensed installers and companies to take advantage of clients.
  • There is a chance that they may discolor and fade especially if inferior materials are used.

Can You Pressure Wash A Resin Driveway?

Yes. Resin bound driveways can be pressure washed once in a while to get rid of dirt, stains and oil marks from vehicles. Care should be taken also, so as not to damage the area. Alternatively, a jet wash can also be used.

Do Resin Driveways Crack?

When installed properly, cracks will not appear on the resin bound surface. Cracks will normally appear as a result of faulty installation or a poor mix. To avoid cracks, proper resin-aggregate ratio has to be maintained with the accurate depth of application. The driveway should also not be subjected to weight above its capacity.

Do Weeds Grow Through Resin Driveways?

Resin bound driveways are resistant to growth of weeds because the surfaces are completely bound. However, there could be growth of surface weeds especially when small seeds fall onto the surface of a driveway. Also, some weather conditions can also cause the growth of moss and algae on a resin bound surface.

Thus, it is important that cleaning be done at intervals to prevent this. Due to its surface, it is much easier to maintain than the traditional flooring system.

How Do I Permanently Get Rid Of Weeds In My Driveway?

Here are some tips to get rid of weeds in your driveway:

  • Pull out the weeds in the traditional way
  • Eliminate them with vinegar
  • A soil knife, Cape Cod weeder or a V-notch weeder can be used for easier removal of weeds
  • Employ the use of a commercial herbicide
  • Kill weeds with boiling water
  • Use garden or landscape fabric to prevent the weed growth
  • Cover the cracks from where the weeds spring forth
  • Talk to an expert to help you

How Much Weight Can A Resin Driveway Take?

Resin bound driveways are usually installed mainly for residential use and not for heavy or commercial use. A resin driveway can take a weight of up to 7.5tons. However, for durability and longevity of your driveway, it is important your installer knows what you intend to use it for so as to ensure that the right aggregate tone size and mix ratio is used.

Are Resin Driveways Better Than Block Paving?

Resin driveways are surface bound which means they are less susceptible to cracks and growth of weeds. Furthermore, resin bound surfaces do not require as much maintenance work as block paving or other traditional flooring systems.

Additionally, using a resin aggregate stone for your driveway gives you a plethora of options you can choose for ensuring that you have just the right style, design and texture for whatever you need. Therefore, resin driveway is an ideal upgrade to block paving.

How Long Does It Take For A Resin Driveway To Set?

A resin driveway can be used 24hrs after installation for walks and relaxations. To allow for further bonding of the materials and preserve durability, we recommended that the resin be allowed to set for 48hrs before smaller vehicles are used on it. For bigger vehicles, a 72hrs time frame is ideal.
