GIVE YOUR OLD DRIVEWAY THE WOW FACTOR
Resin Bound surfacing is a proven product to transform your old tired looking driveway, path or patio into something stunning that is known to increase property valuations and give you envious neighbours.
Resin bound paving materials are flexible and extremely strong with a life span of around 15-20 years depending on usage. They can be used on driveways, pathways, patios, swimming pool surrounds or any other install that has an adequate base.
One of the biggest attractions of resin bound surfacing is that they can be installed onto an existing tarmac or concrete driveway without the disruption and inconvenience of a full excavation. This means your old, tired looking driveway can be transformed into something stunning usually within just two days.
Resin bound paving is a mixture of aggregate and a polyurethane or epoxy resin. The two materials are mixed on site in a specialist forced action mixer and hand troweled onto a suitable solid base. The end result is a natural decorative gravel surface that's extremely hard wearing, non-slip, permeable with next to no maintenance - a welcome alternative to block paving.
Resin bound installs are laid to a minimum depth of 15mm for Paths, 18-20mm for Driveways and 6-8mm for internal use.
There are two different methods to install a resin driveway, Resin Bound and Resin Bonded.
The Resin Bound method is a porous SuDS compliant method where the chosen aggregate is mixed in a forced action mixer with the two part resin. Once fully mixed the material is then hand trowelled onto the install base to a smooth finish with no loose stones.
The Resin Bonded method is a non porous install method that is also known as the scatter system. With this method of install a layer of resin is first applied to the install base and then the aggregate is scattered on top. Once the resin has fully cured the remaining loose stones are removed.
Of the two install methods the Bound method is better because the entire stone aggregate is covered in Resin whereas with the Bonded method only the bottom of the stone is in contact with the resin meaning there is potential for the stone to become loose.
Peterborough driveways only install the stronger and permeable Bound method.
