5 reasons to choose resin bound paving

16th April 2020

Resin-bound driveways are a mixture of aggregate stones and resin used to pave footpaths, driveways to provide a reliable hardstanding surface. Resin is a suitable driveway alternative, but why choose a resin bound driveway over other alternatives such as tarmac and block paving?

Visually Appealing

Achieve the look of stone or gravel without the maintenance costs or hassle. Resin driveways are both decorative and functional, available in a variety of colours, textures and aggregates types, providing a smooth hardstanding area to suit properties of all types.

Quick Installation

Resin bound driveways can be laid on top of existing concrete or asphalt surfaces, which can act as a sub-base, saving significant time, convenience and costs. The installation of a resin driveway takes around 8 hours on average, and the recommended guidelines are to give the surface a 48 hour setting period before allowing smaller vehicles on it.

Anti Slip

A resin bound driveway system is a permeable paving solution. This means that water is able to drain away through the surface, avoiding puddles forming during the rainy months, which therefore also reduces the likelihood of ice forming on the surface and causing injury over winter.

Low Maintenance

The technology of resin bound driveways minimise weed growth and the amount of water, dirt and debris that is able to build up on the surface. Other than an occasional sweeping and jet washing, resin bound driveways require little to no maintenance for most of the year.


Engineered to last for years and even decades, many resin bound driveways come with guarantees from 10 to as long as 21 years, when properly installed, resin driveways can last longer than 25 years.

SuDS Compliant

A Sustainable urban Drainage System is a water management system introduced by the Environment Agency to help manage flood risk and water quality. Resin bound driveways, due to their permeability and good drainage properties, comply with these guidelines making them a future proof choice for your property.
