For an affordable, customisable and strong drive or pathway, you can choose a resin driveway. Resin driveways (also known as resin bound or resin bonded drives) are made from a combination of small smooth stones and a UV resistant resin. Resin drives create a seamless finish, with customisable colours, patterns and shapes, making them suitable for almost any home or property.

Resin Driveways Cost
Like with most driveways, the size required will be one of the biggest factors when determining prices. Resin driveways cost more than many other types of drives, as it has a more complicated installation process.
Other factors that will influence the price of a resin driveway include any patterns you want included, steps, manhole covers, as well as any cabling and pipes that could interfere with the ground work.
There is also a difference between the prices for resin bound and resin bonded driveways.

What is the difference between ‘bound’ and ‘bonded’ resin surfacing?
Whilst the names and end result of bound resin and bonded resin driveways may be similar, one is permeable and the other is not.
Bound resin driveways are permeable, which allows water to sink down into the ground below. This makes it compliant with SuDs regulations, and ensures that you do not need planning permission. The resin is hand-trowelled, resulting in an even and smooth surface.
Bonded resin driveways are not water-permeable, and if water is likely to run off your driveway and onto the road, you will most likely require planning permission. The surface of bonded resin drives and paths is not smooth, and also not as durable, as stones can dislodge. This method of applying resin bonded surfaces is known as scatter coating.

Resin Bound and Bonded Driveway Cleaners
Although resin bound and bonded gravel driveways are extremely tough, we recommend using a professional driveway cleaner for a deep clean, that will restore your drive back to a freshly laid appearance. Our professional resin driveway cleaners use specialist equipment that ensures the dirt is removed, but your drive is not damaged.
Resin Bonded driveways are far less rugged, and can be easily damaged by improper cleaning and high-pressure sprayers. These surfaces require delicate care and specialist equipment.
