Resin Driveway in Glasgow

Resin bonding is a distinctive way to develop a driveway surface. To make a resin bonded surface, the layer of resin will be laid on a bottom, which is generally concrete or asphalt. The resin is usually then followed by an aggregate, which tends in order to be gravel or a specific finely crushed natural stone. The aggregate sticks for the resin to create a new solid surface. Some individuals opt to add an added, thin layer of loose aggregate on top, yet this is optional. A new resin bonded surface need to not be confused with the resin bound surface. A new resin bound surface is usually made by mixing an aggregate with resin and after that troweling it on.

A new resin bonded driveway has several advantages. It's strong and fairly resistant to weeds. Not only this, it won't fade with time and shouldn't get ruined by oil or gas spills. A resin fused driveway can also put up with heavy weather and intense temperatures. Many individuals pick resin bonded driveways over gravel driveways as the stone on resin driveways can be relied on not to shift.

Plant bonded driveways are furthermore popular because they're appealing. There are lots of different aggregate colours obtainable so you can opt for a shade that will matches your house. It's likewise possible to create styles on the surface.

    FAQs

    What is a resin bound driveway?

    A resin bound driveway is made from resin and aggregates that are mixed together to create a smooth, flat surface. They’re often called ‘stone carpets’ because they offer a decorative finish that is durable and requires very little maintenance. It has lots of little gaps that allow water to drain into the ground, which means that you won’t get pooling or flooding around your property.

    You can choose from lots of different colours and types of aggregate (stones) so that your resin bound driveway complements your property. Most contractors recommend choosing a darker aggregate because they are more resistant to the sun, but if you choose a good UV-resistant resin you should be able to have a lighter stone that doesn’t get too bleached by the sun.

    To lay a resin bound driveway, resin and aggregates are mixed in a forced action mixer to create a mixture that a tradesperson will then pour and trowel onto a prepared base. It will become smooth once it’s cured, and the stones will all be contained, so you won’t have to spend time sweeping gravel back onto your driveway. The only maintenance that’s needed is to wash it with soapy water every now and again and sweep away any debris. Just make sure you don’t use chemicals or oils, as this might damage the coating.

    How to lay resin bound driveways
    It's pretty tricky to lay resin bound driveways. Most contractors will go on courses to learn how to lay resin bound paving or driveways to ensure that they get a high-quality installation that will last the customer decades. So while you could do it yourself, it’s probably best leaving it to the professionals. But if you want to know how to lay resin bound driveways, take a look at these rough steps to give you an idea.
    1. Prepare the base If you want your resin bound driveway to last a long time, you need to ensure that you prepare the base properly. Remove any block paving, grass or soil and dig down until you hit solid ground. Lay a sub-base of asphalt for good permeability. If you’re laying over the top of your current driveway, make sure that all cracks are increased into a ‘v’ shape with a saw and ensure the surface is dry and weed-free.
    2. Mix the resin You must follow the instructions on the materials you have to the letter if you want the curing process to work. Usually batches come in ‘Part A’ and ‘Part B’. Keep the resin container secure and on a protective surface to avoid splashing, then mix Part A for 10-20 seconds at a slow speed with a helical bladed mixer. Add Part B and mix thoroughly at a slow speed for about 2 minutes until it’s blended together.
    3. Mix the dried aggregates and sand with the resin Place a quarter of the aggregates into a mixer, then add the pre-mixed resin and start a stopwatch. You should then add the rest of the aggregates before slowly adding the sand. When you’re happy with that mix, stop the stopwatch. That time is the time that you need to spend mixing any other resin and aggregates to avoid colour variation.
    4. Lay the mix on the surface Transfer the mix to the work area then plan a laying route. When the mix is laid out, use a very clean trowel to spread the mix. Clean it regularly during the process to avoid dragging aggregates out of place. Once the aggregates stop moving in a fluid movement and become solid, stop trowelling. Then you can polish the surface to give it an attractive shine.
    It’s clear that laying resin bound driveways is not an easy task. It’s best to get a few quotes from reputable, experienced companies to lay your driveway for you.
    How long does a resin bound driveway last?
    Resin bound driveways are a great way to have an attractive-looking gravel driveway without the loose stones to clear up. The clue is in the name – your choice of aggregates (stones) are bound in resin to stop them moving; the surface is still permeable so water can drain away. So how long does a resin bound driveway last? When installed properly, you can expect it to last 25 years or more. But there are some things you need to do to ensure that your resin bound driveway lasts that long: Make sure the contractor uses the right type of resin Your resin bonded driveway will last longer if you choose the right kind of resin. It needs to be a UV-resistant resin so the sun doesn’t damage it, especially if you choose a lighter-coloured paving stone. Darker stones are more UV-resistant, so you might want to consider that too. Think carefully about the size of stone to use You might think that the size of the stones in your driveway doesn’t make a difference, but your resin bound driveway will last longer if you choose a stone of about 6mm to 10mm in size. This is because any bigger will affect the surface water drainage, potentially causing flooding on your property and maybe even damp in your walls. Keep your driveway maintained It’s vital that you keep your resin bound driveway maintained if you want it to last a long time. Make sure you hose it down and sweep it regularly to remove debris and maintain its porosity. When you clean your driveway, the water needs to be soapy, but don’t use chemicals or oils as this could damage the resin. As long as you look after your resin bound driveway, it should last you for decades. Just make sure you get a reputable company to install it for you.
    Are resin bound driveways expensive?

    Whether you think resin bound driveways are expensive or not will depend on your perception. While resin bound driveways are the most expensive up front, they should last much longer than other types of driveway. You should expect a resin bound driveway to last at least 25 years, if not longer, while a concrete or asphalt driveway may last between 15-20 years. A pattern imprinted driveway may last even less time due to the maintenance required to keep them looking pristine.

    It’s also worth considering that resin bound driveways are good permeable surfaces, so will drain well and keep water from pooling around your property. This will keep your property maintenance costs down, since pooling water or flooding around your home could cause damp in your walls which is a very expensive problem to fix.

    Resin bound driveways are by far the most attractive type of driveway to have. There are no loose stones to sweep up, no weeds to pull out from the gaps, and there’s no extensive power washing required to keep them looking good. If you want a driveway that gives your home true kerb appeal and you value your time, resin bound driveways don’t seem that expensive.

    The other factor that can make resin bonded driveways less expensive is that sometimes you can lay them on top of the existing surface. For example, if you already have a concrete or asphalt driveway that is in good condition with no large cracks, a driveway contractor may be able to lay the resin and aggregate mix straight over the top, which will cost much less money than if you have to dig up the existing driveway and start from scratch.
