Durable and long-lasting

When you choose a resin bound patio, you can expect it to last for several years. Resin is an extremely durable and hardwearing surface, and so you can rest assured that it will stay looking its best long into the future. At Resin Mixed Stone, we’ve been installing resin bound patios in Sheffield, Doncaster, and Chesterfield for many years and we have built up a great reputation. We offer a 10-year guarantee on resin patios, however, you can expect it to last you much longer than this. When correctly maintained, they can last for up to 25 years. 

Many people wonder if resin bonded patios are just as strong and robust as resin bound. However, it’s important to note that bound surfacing is a lot tougher and has greater durability. One of the main reasons for this is that the thickness is from 16mm whereas bonded is from 3mm thick. 

Low Maintenance

You won’t need to clean a resin bound patio every weekend to keep it looking nice. Whilst some maintenance is necessary, usually this is minimal. Sweeping it clean every so often with a stiff brush will remove leaves and other debris as well as preventing moss growth. Regular jet washing can also help to remove foreign bodies and stains. If you need expert advice on maintaining your resin patio, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team. We provide fantastic aftercare, helping you keep your new patio in fantastic condition long after it’s been installed.  

Weed resistant

One of the best things about resin bound patios is that they’re resistant to weeds. The porous nature of this surfacing means that water isn’t retained within the material. Therefore, water is prevented from reaching the organic matter. This stops the roots from taking hold and growing up through the patio surface. Moreover, since resin patios are constructed from a single continuous surface, this means there are fewer joints for weeds to grow through. You’re more likely to see weeds on more traditional surfacing materials, such as paving slabs or concrete. You won’t need to worry about unsightly weeds ruining the good looks of your new patio. 

Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDs) compliant

In 2008, the government passed legislation stating that paving over 5sqm at the front of a domestic property should be permeable. Any surfacing that’s non-permeable would need to have planning permission. So, if you choose to install a patio at the front of your home, it’s best to choose a permeable material such as resin bound stone. Resin bound patios are referred to as Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDs) compliant since they and are supported by The Environmental Agency due to easing surface water run-off and reducing the potential of flooding. A resin bound patio is much less likely to encounter flooding than some other types. 

UV stable resin

One reason why so many people are choosing resin bound patios in Doncaster and Sheffield is that the resin used to hold the aggregates together is UV stable. The material doesn’t easily become damaged in sunlight. This stops it from degrading or becoming discoloured over time. Unlike some other surfacing types, you can expect a resin bound patio to retain its attractive appearance for many years.

Anti-slip properties

Resin bound patios have anti-slip properties. This means that you and your guests are unlikely to have any accidents whilst enjoying your outside space. There are no loose stones on this type of surfacing. This is due to the way to we combine and then trowel the resin and aggregates. The process gives resin patios a flat and smooth finish which makes them very safe. Furthermore, they can accommodate various applications too, including wheelchairs and pushchairs. This is particularly useful in commercial settings such as restaurants, cafes, and bars where it’s imperative to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone. Resin patios provide the ideal outdoor seating area for all your customers.
