Resin Driveways: Where to buy and how to install

Light Grey Resin Bound Driveway
Resin-bound driveways are a high-quality surfacing option that offers many benefits. From minimal maintenance to superb drainage, resin bound paving is a popular choice for many homeowners who are looking to add that all-important kerb appeal. But where to buy and how to get resin driveways installed? Resin-bound surfaces must be installed correctly from start to finish, and with this in mind, we have created a how-to guide on how to best kick-start your driveway transformation project.

Finding a resin driveway installer

The first step of the project is to find a local contractor who has experience in installing resin bound surfaces. It can be a daunting task, so our advice would be to look for someone who has good online reviews and is happy for you to view their previous work, be it in person or online. If you cannot find one, you are always welcome to give us a call and we’ll share details of our contractors. Spring Haze Resin Driveway

Deciding the scale of your resin driveway project

Once you have found your resin-bound installer, it’s time to discuss the size of your project. Focus on the result you want and what project type you need. Is it a driveway, path, or patio? Or the combination of all exterior surfaces.

Preparation for resin-bound surface

Once you have decided on the type of resin surface you want, it’s time to approve the price and move on to installation. Resin-bound driveways, more often than not, will need a new base installed. This will ensure that your new surface is not only long-lasting but also has excellent drainage qualities (goodbye puddles). Another good thing about the new base is that it is SUDs compliant and your project won’t need planning permission. Resin Driveway Install

Resin-bound driveway makeover

If you are looking to jazz up your outside space without full excavation, then resin bound makeover is the way to go. Provided you have a sound base such as tarmac or concrete, a resin surface could be installed on top of the existing base. It is not only a tidier option, but also helps you save money on the project.

Choosing the right resin-bound driveway colour

Probably the most enjoyable part of the project is deciding on resin-bound colour and reviewing edging options. Your contractor can be completely led by your design vision or give you advice if you are unsure about what colour will look best. With 24 colours to pick from, you can be sure you will find a colour that complements your property and helps it stand out from the crowd.

Adding a personal touch to your resin driveway

With resin bound surfacing you can get your creative juices flowing and add a personal touch to the outside space. From bespoke colour combinations to unique patterns, resin bound knows no bounds when it comes to design options. Resin Bound Driveway Details
