What is a Resin-Bonded Driveway?

Firstly, before we explain what makes them such a valuable option for driveway construction in Bournemouth, we should elaborate on what a resin-bonded driveway is.

Often mistaken for, although different from, resin-bound driveways, a resin-bonded installation involves a thick layer of resin film being applied to the surface before the new, clean, dry aggregate is scattered on top. The base is coated with glue and uses stones from 1mm to 6mm in size. Compared with resin-bound surfaces, resin-bonded driveways typically have a rougher, more textured finish, while the resin-bound alternatives are smoother.

Key Benefits of Resin Bonded Driveway Construction

When our Bournemouth customers consider these surfaces for their new driveway, they are always an excellent choice. 

Resin-bonded driveway installations visually resemble gravel while requiring less maintenance than real stones. They come in a variety of colours to suit your personal taste. You can choose a colour that matches your property's existing exterior design or a different colour that stands out.

From a practical standpoint, it’s a durable, non-porous, and hard-wearing material that allows you to get a great return on your investment. It’s designed to be a high-grip surface, making it ideal for the colder months when outside temperatures can cause other surfaces to become icy and slippery. This can be particularly useful if you have a sloped driveway, as this allows for additional slip protection for vehicles and pedestrians. On top of all that, it’s a joy for our local groundworkers to work with, as it can be installed in no time.
