Your driveway is more than a simple entrance to your home or office: it is an opportunity to make a statement! While the existing surface of your driveway may be adequate, installing a resin driveway can benefit you in many ways, including increasing the curb appeal of your home or office, adding to the property value, and making it safer for everyone who travels on your driveway daily. How can resin-bound driveways do all this… and more?
What are the Benefits of Laying a Resin Driveway?
1. Incredibly Durable
Jim from West Yorkshire Resin Driveways said “Compared to other types of existing driveways, particularly gravel driveways, resin-bound driveways are incredibly durable.” With proper installation, resin-bound surfacing can easily last up to 25 years with very little maintenance.”
2. Very Low Maintenance
Loose stones in block paving or cracked concrete can lead to maintenance problems, such as the need to pick weeds or brush away loose and cracking concrete. No need to worry about that with resin-bound driveways as they require minimal maintenance and can easily withstand the power of a pressure washer should you choose to use one.
3. Non-Slip Surface
Non-slip surfaces are important when you have the type of weather that is common in the UK. This is particularly true if your driveway or walkways are in heavily trafficked areas or near where children and the elderly walk.
Compared to other types of paving, like asphalt and concrete, resin-bonded surfacing allows for water to move through the surface of the driveway and into the ground below, removing the challenges that come with poor drainage.
5. SUDS Compliant
All new building construction is required to consider Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) to avoid drainage issues, especially in large and densely populated areas. Because of their drainage capabilities, resin-bound driveways are SuDS compliant and often do not require planning permission to be laid. This removes an extra barrier of red tape when planning and executing your projects.
6. Cost Effective
While it is true that a resin driveway may cost similar to other driveway options initially, they tend to be more cost-effective in the long run. This is true when you account for the time spent planning (and paying for) permitting a non-porous surface on your driveway, as well as all the time spent maintaining different types of driveway surfaces.
7. Customizable Colours
Resin driveways offer a variety of colours, allowing you to use the driveway to add to the look and feel of your home. From reds and greys to light colours and dark tones, whatever you need, there is a matching colour or tone for you.
Resin Bonded Driveways: A Great Investment!
No matter the weather conditions or the location of your driveway, a resin driveway can give your home what it needs. A durable, cost-effective, permeable, non-slip surface that is incredibly low maintenance and can be customized to your property, resin driveways are the ultimate investment into your property.
