A resin bound driveway is a popular choice for many homeowners due to its durability, low maintenance requirements, and attractive appearance. Here is a general overview of how a resin bound driveway is typically completed:
1. Initial Assessment: We will visit your property to assess the area and discuss your requirements. We will evaluate the ground conditions, drainage needs, and any existing driveway or base that needs to be prepared.
2. Excavation and Preparation: If there is an existing driveway or surface, it will be removed and excavated to create a suitable foundation. The depth of excavation will depend on factors like the ground stability and intended usage of the driveway. The area is then levelled and compacted to ensure a solid base.
3. Edging Installation: Edging is installed along the perimeter of the driveway to define the boundaries and contain the resin bound surface. This can be done using materials such as concrete kerbs, metal or plastic edging, or blocks.
4. Base Construction: A sub-base or base layer is constructed to provide stability and proper drainage for the resin bound surface. It typically involves laying and compacting layers of crushed stone, aggregates, and/or porous materials, depending on the site requirements.
5. Primer Application: A primer or bonding agent is applied to the prepared surface to promote adhesion between the base and the resin bound layer. This helps ensure a strong and long-lasting driveway.
6. Resin Mixing: The resin, usually a two-part polyurethane or epoxy resin, is mixed with the chosen aggregate. The aggregate can be natural stone, gravel, or recycled materials, and comes in a range of colours and sizes. The resin binds the aggregate together to create a solid, permeable surface.
7. Surface Installation: The mixed resin and aggregate are poured onto the prepared base and spread evenly using specialized tools. The material is levelled and compacted to achieve a smooth and even finish. Additional layers may be applied if a thicker surface is desired.
8. Finishing Touches: Once the resin bound surface is laid, decorative touches can be added if desired. This may include patterns, borders, or contrasting colours to enhance the visual appeal of the driveway.
9. Curing and Setting: The resin bound surface needs time to cure and set properly. The duration may vary depending on factors like temperature and humidity. Your contractor will provide instructions on when the driveway can be used.
10. Cleaning and Maintenance: After the curing period, any loose stones or debris are removed, and the driveway is cleaned thoroughly. Regular maintenance involves sweeping or power washing to keep the surface clean and inspecting for any signs of damage or wear.
It’s important to note that the specific process and materials used may vary depending on the project, location, and individual project requirements.

They know where to find the best aggregates, resins, and other necessary products for your resin bound surface, ensuring a reliable and durable installation.
4. Local Reputation and References: A local contractor’s reputation is built on their work within the community. By choosing a contractor with a strong local reputation, you can have more confidence in their expertise and professionalism. You can also easily access references and testimonials from past clients in the area, allowing you to gauge their track record and the quality of their work.

7. After-Sales Service and Warranty: Should any issues arise after the completion of your project, local contractors are typically more accessible for warranty claims or follow-up services. Their proximity allows for a quicker response and resolution to any concerns, ensuring your satisfaction with the finished driveway.
