Why Use Resin Bound?

Tired of looking at a driveway that’s tired? Then resin bound surfacing is here to help! With its hard-wearing, permeable surface you won’t have any maintenance worries and it will look like new for years.

Water wants to go down, and paved surfaces are not the best for this. That’s why until now gravel has been the best solution for drainage as any rain water will run off of your driveway into the small stones below so there is no risk of flooding or puddles forming. Resin Bound does exactly the same thing but instead of the stones being moveable they are locked into place with polyurethane resin.

The perfect blend of the old and new, resin bound paving brings together tradition with innovation.

Listed below are some of the many benefits of using resin bound surfacing over block paving, loose gravel, imprinted concrete and tarmac.

FAQ

1
Can I drive on a Resin Bound Driveway?

Of course, Resin Bound surfacing is designed to take even the heaviest of traffic such as buses and lorries.

2
Can you overlay my existing patio or driveway?

Possibly. If the area is currently concrete or tarmac there is a good chance we can clean-up/repaired the area and install on top. This obviously keeps costs down as a full dig out and base install will not be required. One of our team will be able to advise if your current install area is suitable for an overlay upon viewing. For your base to have the same lifespan as one of our full resin bound installs, a new base is preferable.

3
How long does a Resin Bound surface last?

As with any driveway unfortunately it simply wont last forever. We offer a 6 Year Guarantee on all our full installs where we have installed the base and the resin manufacturers, who do vigorous testing on the product, give an average lifetime expectancy of 20 years before minor problems may start to occur. The great thing with a Resin Bound install is that if in twenty years time there were any issues with the Resin, the top surface can simply be replaced for a fraction of the cost of a full install.

4
How long does Resin Bound take to set?

The Resin install area will be suitable for use after 4-6 hours for pedestrian traffic installs, and 12-16 hours for vehicular traffic. For heavy use, 24 hours would be ideal where possible to ensure a fully bonded surface.

5
Is the Resin surface permeable?

Installs use enough resin to ensure each particle is coated allowing the aggregate to bond securely whilst leaving gaps between the stone for water to permeate through the resin. This is one of the biggest reasons customers opt for Resin driveway installs over say block paving as it allows water to dissipate better.

6
What depth is the Resin usually laid at?

The depth of install will vary for each project, this depends on the type of application and the size of the aggregate that is used. Typically the depth of a driveway install for normal vehicle traffic is approximately 18mm.

7
What's the difference between Resin Bound and Resin Bonded surfacing?

Resin Bound systems use aggregate mixed in a mixer with Resin and then hand-trowelled into place. This produces a surface that is both smooth, porous and SuDS compliant when used with the appropriate base build up. With a Resin Bonded install a layer of Resin is screeded onto the install surface and then a fine aggregate is scattered over the top and rolled in. The final result is a rough surface that is not porous.

8
Is there a limit to the size of a Resin Bound installation?

In short… No. However, as the system is hand trowelled larger installs may require the use of a joint. This could be a block of some description but is is usually completed using an aluminium joint. The aluminium joint is extremely thin in size and hardly visible. This allows a larger install to be completed over more than one day as it introduces a break in the system if setting times wont be long enough or if the area is too much of a risk to try and complete in a single day. Also If there is any movement in the sub-base, it will cause reflective cracking, as the sub-base underneath the Resin expands and contracts. This is why a movement joint is often used to protect against the natural stresses on a driveway that can cause cracking, essential for larger Resin Bound installations.

How Does a Resin Installation Work?

The Resin system can be used to transform an existing pavement, tarmac or concrete into something more modern as well as onto newly-laid surfaces.

If installing onto an existing base this should be in good condition and free from weeds, cracks or potholes before installation.

If installing onto a new base this is best to be constructed from asphalt. An open course of asphalt will be less prone to cracking than concrete and will also be permeable allowing the install to be fully SUDS compliant.

Edging strips made of aluminium can be fixed to the edges to prevent any edges of the install area from crumbling or we also offer a wide range block edging options to compliment your new resin bound aggregate surface. All these options are available to view at our Peterborough Showroom.

Why aren't Resin driveways seen as often as block paving?

One of the main reasons you probably don’t see many Resin driveways in Stamford is because compared to something like Block Paving the system is relatively new. This said, the system has been around for over 25 years and has in the last 10 years become increasingly popular.

“As an installer of Block Paving, Tarmac and Resin Bound, we are now installing more resin bound driveways than any other material.”
