Resin bound driveways refer to driveways made by mixing natural aggregate stones to a resin sub base which is then compacted together to form a smooth, multiple-layer surface that is very durable.
Unlike the resin bonded system, the stones are not scattered on the surface. The implication of mixing the natural stones and the resin to create a smooth finish is that the surface is not only uniform but also flexible to resist cracks and also permeable to allow for water runoff through the surface. This increases the lifespan of the driveway.
In London Resin bound driveways are also more aesthetically pleasing when compared to other surface types. They can also be installed on existing driveway surfaces.
There are many reasons why you should choose a resin bound surface for your driveways, paths and patio. These reasons are making resin bound surfacing a popular choice.

Little Or No Maintenance: With resin bound driveways, you save a whole lot when it comes to maintenance requirements.
While concrete driveways will need sealing due to cracks from time to time, resin bound surfaces need only minimal cleaning to get rid of any weeds or mosses and keep the surface as immaculate as ever.
