Resin Frequently Asked Questions

What is a resin bound surface?

Resin bound refers to a surfacing solution where decorative stones are mixed with a clear resin binder to create a durable, permeable surface. This compound is then manually laid on the surface using a trowel.

How does resin bound differ from resin bonded?

While both involve the use of resin and stones, their application methods differ. Resin bound surfaces are hand-finished installations that result in smooth, permeable, and slip-resistant finishes. On the other hand, resin bonded surfaces involve spreading loose stones over an existing surface, resulting in a rougher, non-permeable finish.

What kind of resin is used in your process?

We utilize polyurethane resin due to its excellent load-bearing and permeability properties. It also has UV resistance to prevent colour fading and discoloration.

Can damages to resin bound driveways be repaired?

Yes, small areas can be repaired using a special repair kit.

What is the installation process for a resin bound driveway?

To achieve a fully permeable surface that allows natural water drainage, a new base must be installed. The existing driveway or area is excavated first, followed by laying and compacting a sub-base layer of stone. A porous tarmac base is then installed, ready for the resin bound surface to be hand laid on top. More information can be found on our Sub-base page.

How much will a resin bound driveway set me back?

The cost varies as each project is unique. We provide FREE, no-obligation quotes where our specialists will discuss your options and provide a full quotation.

Do I require planning permission for a resin bound driveway?

Typically, installations of resin bound driveways, which are fully permeable and SuDS compliant, do not require planning permission. Unlike other surfaces like tarmac, resin bond, or paving, resin bound surfaces allow natural water drainage, eliminating the need for planning consent in most cases.

What is the lifespan of a resin bound driveway?

Based on available data, resin bound surfaces can last over 25 years. We provide a comprehensive product and workmanship guarantee on all our installations - full details can be found HERE.

Is a resin bound surface slippery?

No, our mixture includes a special anti-slip blend to ensure your surface remains safe at all times.

How long does resin installation take?

The duration varies greatly depending on the project size and design. Smaller overlays can be completed within a day, while larger projects requiring full excavation and sub-base construction may take 1-2 weeks.

What groundworks are required?

For a fully permeable surface, a new base comprising a stone sub-base and tarmac binder course is likely needed. Our specialist groundworks team will handle these works to ensure a strong, durable resin bound finish. In some instances, it may be possible to overlay an existing structure, which we can discuss during your initial consultation.

When can I walk on my newly installed resin bound path?

Typically, the finished surface is safe to walk on within 2 hours. For driveways, refrain from driving on the surface for up to 72 hours. These times may vary depending on the surface depth and weather conditions, but our project managers will guide you accordingly once works are completed.
