Resin bound surfacing is on the up with more and more homeowners choosing it for their driveways, pathways and even patios. From flawless finish to low-maintenance resin bound offers many great features, so let’s dig deeper into why you should choose a resin driveway.
With the weather becoming even more unpredictable as we bounce from torrential rain one minute to record-breaking heatwaves the next, there isn’t a better time to consider a durable porous surface.
Resin bound is permeable which means it allows surface water to naturally pass into the ground or go through a water filtering system if one’s built-in.
Thanks to its superb drainage qualities, the resin surface is also SUDs compliant and does not need planning permission, regardless of its size. What’s not to love about that?
If you are tired of having to regularly remove weeds from your driveway, then resin bound is the answer. Unlike block paving, resin bound is laid on a porous concrete base or open type tarmac, which prevents weeds from growing up through the sub-base and base.
Sometimes, particularly in areas where there’s lots of vegetation, the wind will blow tiny seedlings onto the surface. These then start to germinate, appearing as weeds.
Fortunately, these weeds don’t last long due to the permeability of the resin surface. Due to the porous nature of the resin, any water runs through it instead of settling on top. The seedlings become starved of water, which means that the roots are unable to take hold and thrive.
With resin bound you can get your creative juices flowing and design a driveway that’s unique to you.
From different coloured borders and diamond patterns to bespoke shapes and house numbers written into your drive, you can create an individual style for your home and grounds using our colour palettes.
Here at Moli, we have 24 different colour blends to choose from. Whatever idea you’ve got for your project, our team of experts and installers will be able to provide guidance and advice.
When selecting the surface for your driveway you want something that is going to stand the test of time. No one wants to install paving that will not last long and will make the entire project costly.
Resin bound surfaces are durable, hard-wearing and long-lasting. When properly installed and maintained, a resin driveway can last for more than 25 years.
One of the biggest concerns people have in winter is the instability of themselves and their vehicles on wet or icy ground.
The natural quality of resin bound stone surfacing means that it provides great traction for all driveway and pathway users. To enhance its anti-slip properties, crushed glass is also cast over the surface before it fully cures.
This leaves you with a safe and high friction surface perfect for use throughout the year and whatever the weather.
