Why should I choose a resin driveway?

Posted on 23 July 2023

A question that we are often asked at Resin Mixed Stone is “Why should I choose a resin driveway?”. Resin driveways offer a wide range of benefits, ranging from incredible durability to fantastic customisation options. You can also expect a professionally installed resin driveway to add considerable value to your home. 

At Resin Mixed Stone, we are proud to be one of the leading suppliers of resin driveways in Doncaster and Sheffield, serving both residential and commercial customers throughout South Yorkshire. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons for choosing a resin driveway for your property. 

Outstanding durability

One reason why so many people are opting for resin driveways is that they are incredibly tough. The blend of resin and aggregate gives you a robust surface that’s perfectly capable of withstanding regular traffic and heavy loads. Unlike some options available for your driveway, resin driveways are highly resistant to cracking, fading and developing potholes. They have an impressive ability to withstand everything the Great British weather can throw at them. You can expect a resin driveway to last for a very long time before you need to replace it.

Customisation options

Resin driveways have also become very popular due to the way you can tailor your installation towards your specific requirements. The wide range of customisation options available to you allows you to create a unique look. There are so many options available to you in terms of texture, colour and finish, and you shouldn’t find it difficult to create something that complements the driveways surroundings. A resin driveway can enhance the curb appeal of your home considerably.

Low maintenance

Another reason why resin driveways are in such high demand is that they don’t require a great deal of maintenance. You won’t need to seal or resurface your resin driveway on a regular basis. Your driveway will also be highly resistant to oil spills, stains and weed growth. Cleaning a resin driveway is a simple process. You can normally keep your surface looking clean and fresh with a quick sweep or pressure wash.


Resin driveways also offer fantastic permeability. This means water simply drains through the surface of a resin driveway instead of pooling or running off. This permeability means you don’t have to worry about puddles, flooding, waterlogging or water damage after installation This can be particularly appealing if you live somewhere with a high amount of rainfall.


Resin driveways have smooth, even surfaces which deliver fantastic grip and traction. This means they are safe for pedestrians and vehicles. As there are no loose stones or uneven patches, the risk of trips, slips and falls after the installation of your driveway. 

Adds value to your property

Resin driveways are great investments as they can add value to your property. The amount that you pay for a resin driveway may be much smaller than the figure that it adds to your home’s worth. These driveways are very popular amongst people seeking to purchase a new property. It’s certainly worth drawing attention to your resin driveway if you ever decide to put your property on the market and want to talk about its most appealing features.

Quick installation

Resin driveways in Doncaster and Sheffield don’t take a long time to install. During the installation process, the base is prepared before the resin and aggregate mixture is applied. The curing time is generally shorter than that of asphalt and concrete driveways. This means you don’t have to wait very long at all to start using your driveway once the installation is complete. You can normally start driving lighter vehicles onto a resin driveway after just 36 hours.

UV stability

Most resin driveways are UV stable. This means they’re capable of withstanding regular exposure to sunlight without discolouring or fading. You can expect your driveway to maintain its vibrant colour and appearance for many years. If you’re looking for a driveway that won’t quickly start to fade or look dull, this could be the ideal option for you.

An eco-friendly option

A further advantage of installing a resin driveway is that it is an eco-friendly solution. This is largely because of their permeability, with rainwater infiltrating into the ground so groundwater supplies are replenished. Resin driveways also feature sustainable materials like recycled aggregates and natural stone. A resin driveway can help you keep your carbon footprint to a minimum when you’re making valuable home improvements.

Many thanks to Richard and his team who did a fantastic work when resurfacing our drive and front of bay window with resin stone.
Resin Mixed Stone put down a resin driveway for my mother in October last year. The service and workmanship was excellent and the drive has been totally transformed from its previous old concrete look. My wife and I were so impressed that we used Resin Mixed Stone to wide our existing driveway and then cover the existing tarmac surface with a resin coat. The service and workmanship was again excellent and the new drive looks superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who is considering a resin surface.
From start to finish the whole service and end product has been and is fantastic. Plenty of options to choose from with samples and practical advice to make that easier. Quote was clear and care taken to measure accurately. The team that completed the work were very professional and hard-working. The finished driveway has transformed the front of our property. Would highly recommend the team. Thank-you to all the Resin Mixed Stone team.
