Why Use Resin For Your Driveway, Patio Or Path

Using resin for your driveway, patio or path provides a highly cosmetic finish to your property and delivers outstanding kerb appeal increasing the value of your home. Resin also provide a number of additional benefits vs tarmac and block paving, not least the fact that it is over 10 times more eco-friendly in comparison to concrete.


Resin bound driveways, patios and paths are up to 10 times more eco-friendly than concrete. Our resin bound surfaces are made using natural stone and a high grade resin containing no solvents to ensure they are as robust as concrete but without causing damage to our planet.

In addition the permeable nature of our resin driveways, patios and paths allows water to naturally drain away reducing surface water run off helping to alleviate the risk of flooding in a natural, sustainable and eco-friendly manner.

Sustainable Urban Drainage Compliant

In October 2008 legislation was passed applying to households stating that all paving over 5sqm at the front of a property has to be permeable and that anything which is non-permeable would require planning permission. In planning terms this is referred to as Sustainable Urban Drainage or SUDs.

Resin bound driveways, patios and paths are permeable in nature and one of the primary solutions to meeting the SUDs criteria. Our resin driveway, patio and path installations therefore do not require planing permission and are highly encouraged by The Environmental Agency in helping to alleviate surface water run off and reducing the potential of flooding.

Hard Wearing, Durable & Long Lasting 

The materials we use in your resin driveway, patio or path have been carefully sourced and consist of 100% natural stone from across the UK and Europe. Extensive testing of different aggregate mixes, including strength assessments, have been conducted to ensure the full spectrum of performance across both domestic and commercial installations is covered.

The resins we utilise contain the latest polymer technology designed to give a resilient and robust surface that has longevity and durability unlike others in the industry. The result of the materials we use is a hard wearing, durable and long lasting driveway, patio or path with excellent aesthetics. 

Low Maintenance

Resin driveways, patios and paths are strong and durable but in comparison to other tradition surfacing methods they are also a low maintenance solution to your surfacing requirements.

The use of resin as the binding agent essentially provides a 'sealed' surface without cracks which means you will no longer have to deal with issues such as weeds popping up between the joints. The flexible nature of the resin also makes it resistant to cracking or flaking meaning there is no need for resetting block paving, repointing flags or even topping up gravel that has washed away.

Beside an occasional sweep and clean you can simply sit back and enjoy the eye catching quality of driveway, patio or path year after year.

UV Stable, Resistant Against Fading

The ResinBound UVR Pro we use is the professional choice in polyurethane resin kits, it has been specially formulated for the use of resin bound driveways, patios and paths. From a performance perspective it is UV stable so resin bound aggregates will not yellow, change colour or fade with UV light from the sun.

The quality and testing of the ResinBound UVR Pro resin we use is such that it comes with a 25 year colour lock gaurantee from the manufacturer.

Stain Resistant

The nature of resin driveways, patios and paths makes them highly resistant to staining issues seen with traditional surfacing such as tarmac, concrete and stone. The resin itself provides a sealant to the natural stone stopping potentially staining substances such as oil entering the natural stone aggregates themselves. Whilst the porous structure of the finished surface allows residues which would potentially be staining to non permeable surfaces to be naturally washed away as opposed to being absorbed.

Weed Resistant

The clever cellular composition created when installing resin bound surfaces makes driveways, patios and paths resistant to the growth of weeds. The porous nature of the finished surface means that water is not retained within the material and therefore starves any organic matter of water inhibiting their roots being able to take hold. In addition the single continuous surface generated by a resin driveway, patio or path combined with a level of flexibility removes the number of joints and the likelihood of cracks seen in more traditional surfacing materials where weeds often appear.

Anti Slip Properties

The resin driveways, patio and paths we install are all done so in line with the manufactures recommendations to deliver exceptional anti-slip properties. Testing has ensured that all the surfaces we offer exceed safety expectations of BS 7976-2 guidelines. The test carried out for anti-slip properties is a 'Pendulum Test Value' (PVT). A PTV value of 36 relates to requirements of The Health and Safety Executive, the higher the value is, the better the slip resistance is.

The lowest PVT value of any finish we provide is 69, with many at a PVT value of 75 or above.
