Building Driveways The Right Way

Building Driveways The Right Way

A resin bonded driveway is a driveway laid by using a technique that bonds the resin to decorative aggregate. The driveways are attractive because they look great. They are hard-wearing, quick to lay, slip-resistant, they don’t have loose stones that can damage cars, and they have good traction.

Resin bonded driveways are becoming increasingly popular as public awareness increases. The resin is a fast setting and can withstand traffic within hours. Resins are available in different colors and should be chosen to compliment the aggregate.

Resin driveways in London are created using the Scatter Coat method, which is one of the best options for creating resin based surfacing. It is cheaper than the trowelled method because the resin is only used at the base. When all the ingredients are mixed to make resin, only then it can be laid directly on the base. It needs to be spread evenly within a few minutes.

The aggregate needs to be scattered over the resin layer as soon as possible. To avoid the bald patches on the driveway an even coating is needed. It would be beneficial to add too many aggregates on the patch as excess can be collected once the resin is fully set. The stones will slowly sink and the surface will be flattened.

While constructing the driveways the permeable paving slabs can be used. They allow water to soak away rather than draining off.  Eco-friendly driveways of resin-bound paving can also be created using recycled materials such as bathroom ceramics or crushed CD’s.
