It’s a challenging task to quote a precise cost per square meter generally speaking because the pricing depends on various factors.
Here are the main elements that will influence the final price for such a project: size, current surface, choosing between UV stable or Non UV stable resin, the need to install edging, the layout of the installation area, and more.
Main factors that affect pricing
Size of the area
Usually, you can learn that the square meter rate can reduce as the area increased and vice versa. So, don’t be surprised if you will hear this from the specialists you’re working with.
Size and depth of the aggregate
There are various sizes of aggregates available on the market, and they range from 1-2 mm to a 10mm. It’s also important to mention the fact that driveways are installed with 1-5mm variation in aggregate size. The depth is of 15 mm.
Current driveway surface
This is another essential factor that should be discussed. This is probably the most important element that affects costs.
The amount of preparation, the repainting of the surface, cleaning, the leveling that’s needed to the sub-base – these are all important factors that will be taken into consideration.
UV stable vs. non UV stable resin
Another important issue to note that is the non UV stable resin is about half of the price of the UV stable resin. But, you will also have to remember that if you use a non UV stable resin, you will see it getting yellow over time.
The need of edging installation
Edge restraints offer a neat and high-quality finish, and these are also important elements worth considering.
Also, the layout will need to be inspected in order to make sure that the installation of the resin driveway is of the highest quality.
