There are few better ways to instantly transform the kerb appeal of your property than installing a resin driveway in Surrey. This revolutionary material is being used by many homeowners around the Surrey area, transforming the exterior of their houses. It comes in a range of different colours and fits the aesthetic of any type of property. At Limegate Solutions, we’ve been installing resin driveways for years and are always available to answer customer queries for anyone interested in upgrading their property.
Resin bound driveways and resin bonded driveways – what’s the
The two product types – resin bound and resin bonded – sound very similar and may initially be a little confusing. When laid onto a driveway, resin bound and resin bonded materials look quite similar. There is also a wide selection of colours to pick from to suit the exterior of your property. Another thing they have in common is they contain no loose gravel stones, instantly reducing the chances of anyone tripping over on the driveway.
However, there are some key differences to note, which we have outlined for you here.
One of the main advantages of a resin driveway is its porous material. Even under the heaviest of downpours, the surface will not retain water as the material is designed to drain it away.
Here are three key reasons why resin bound driveways are chosen by so many homeowners.
- UV protection.
The driveway will experience no fading under direct sunlight.
- Porous surface.
No matter how much it rains, no standing water will remain on the surface.
You’ll always be safe and sure of foot thanks to the material’s anti-slip design.
Using Limegate Solutions to install a new resin bound driveway instantly brings you up-to-date with the latest regulations regarding the use of a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS).
Customers often choose resin bound driveways because of the water drainage they provide. On the other hand, resin bonded driveways are not designed to be porous. You will often find that resin bonded driveways are installed in areas of high traffic, as the material is especially safe and durable.
Reasons why you might wish to consider installing a resin bonded driveway include:
- High friction.
The high skid resistance makes it an extremely safe material to walk on.
- Cost efficiency.
Lower costs provide an attractive selling point to many customers.
- Rapid installation.
With as much as 2-3m2 laid down per day, installation is quick and easy.
The process of
installing a resin
When we install a resin driveway, the following elements are always included:
When we arrive at a homeowner’s property, our team carry out these steps:
For those having a resin bound driveway installed, a tarmac base is laid first to ensure the resin layer can drain away water.
We then mix the resin in two stages. Dried aggregates are added to the resin inside a forced action mixer, before it is then mixed for a further 3-4 minutes.
The resin is then ready to be laid, which we do by hand aided by the use of a trowel. We find this method produces the best finish.
Once we are happy the surface is even, we leave it to cure for 4-6 hours. Within 24 hours it can be walked across and after 3-4 days cars can drive onto it.
