Resin Mixed Stone are here to advise you on how adding kerb appeal with a resin bound driveway can enhance your home. Not only are there practical benefits, but there are also visual benefits too. If you feel it’s time for a change, then take a look at our article and decide for yourself if a resin bound driveway is what you’ve been needing, in order to spruce up your home.
Resin-bound surfaces are a combination of natural stone aggregate, mixed with resin to bind them together to ensure an attractive and smooth finish. This process strengthens your driveway and paths, helping your kerb appeal to last longer. Great news for those with a dip in their driveway, as the material is porous and will absorb rainwater allowing it to drain, so you won’t get rainwater accumulating into an unwanted pool.
Is there much difference between a resin-bound and a bonded surface? Bonded surfaces feature a resin base, covered with a layer of aggregate over the top and left to settle. To finish the process, excess aggregate will be removed creating a natural, stony finish. Get the best of both worlds with a bonded surfacing that stays in place but gives the ‘loose stone illusion.’ An ideal way to avoid any rutting of stone and an easy way to guarantee your driveway looks neat at all times.
You may be wondering, how many colours and sizes can there be for a resin bound driveway?
There are several colours you can choose from, for adding a personal touch to your driveway. Ranging from blacks, browns, golds to greys, whites and several stone colour blends. Most of the colours will not affect the performance or durability of a resin surface.
You’re also able to decide on the size of stone you want, another great process in making sure all your requirements are met. Smaller stones are usually applied to home driveways, whereas large stones are commonly used for pathways, business fronts and car parks. Be passionate about your decisions, and don’t settle for anything that doesn’t strike you. You can have your subtle colours or statement colours and the appropriate stone size; it’s completely up to you!
Having a smooth driveway can increase the value of your house as well as its safety. A resin-bound surface is pleasing to the eye and avoids any unwanted damage to your car from driving over cracks or potholes, that may result in an expensive trip to your local garage.
