Resin Driveway installation service
The latest preferred choice for a truly hard-wearing and long-lasting surface is a resin driveway.
Resin bound and resin bond are techniques for creating driveways, paths and patios that offer a number of advantages over more traditional methods. A resin bound or bonded installation can be used to improve the look of an existing driveway or can be employed to create pathways, access roads, pool surrounds and patios. A resin driveway is versatile and strong, yet very straightforward to install.
- Driveways of any shape
- Paths, patios & edging
- Swimming pool surrounds
- Business forecourts
- Shop entrance areas
- Access courtyards
- Pub beer gardens
What are the advantages of a resin driveway, patio or path?
Once fully set, the combination of resin and gravel in your driveway surface provides a strong, durable finish, suitable for foot traffic, cars and other vehicles. The attractive, 'grippy' surface makes modern resin driveways extremely popular, as they offer ease of use, a stable surface area and, of course, a beautiful finish. The decorative resin gravel mix is also easy to maintain, requiring just a regular jet of water over the surface to keep it in good condition.
You can choose from a selection of different colours for the aggregate, to get just the finish you're after. Create a unique style that makes your driveway stand out from your neighbours' drives, or match the local theme to fit in with your friends. We offer full customisation over the final outcome of your driveway, patio or path.
All resin driveway installations come with our 10 year guarantee.
What’s the difference between ‘Resin Bound Drives’ & ‘Resin Bonded Drives’?
There are two main options when choosing resin for your new driveway. Despite sounding very similar, there are some important differences between the two:
- Resin Bound - this involves the resin and aggregate being mixed prior to application. The mixture is then spread evenly across the chosen surface, drying to a very solid and even finish. A big advantage of this technique is that the drive remains completely water permeable.
- Resin Bonded - this technique involves resin first applied over the driveway, then a subsequent layer of loose stone pressed into the top surface. This is a quicker and cheaper process but can often lead to loose chippings and an uneven finish. There is an added disadvantage that the drive will no longer be permeable.
At Foundations Masters we give the option of both types of resin driveway, although we usually recommend resin bound to most customers, due to its many benefits.
