You have to admit that standing water on the driveway will make it really dirty and dangerous as well.
This water will freeze in the winter, and it will make the area slippery, encouraging the moss to grow as well.
The importance of drainage
Local drains cannot always cope with the water that is washing off the driveways instead of soaking into them.
Lack of drainage can also cause sewers to become polluted and environmental issues can be the result of dirt and oil from the driveway that are washed in the sewer.
Standing water on the driveway will make it dirty and also dangerous at the same time.
Water that is left sitting on the surface of the driveway will be able to make its way into cracks and the imperfections on the surface of the driveway. If this water freezes, it will expand and the cracks will become worse.
More than that, water that flows towards the home can create damp issues inside the house – mold on in the floors and interior walls.
Resin driveways – the SUDS compliant solution
You have various options to overcome the issues mentioned above: you can use permeable surfaces with porous materials, a radical redirection (water from the driveway can be predicted to places where it can naturally soak away), and purpose-built drains – building a network of drains within the construction.
Resin surfacing offers the best solution without having to create special drainage systems.
Resin driveways combine resin and aggregates, and it’s them laid onto a prepared asphalt surface, and the option is ideal for preventing standing water.
As we said before, resin driveways are long-lasting, and they are not prone to cracking, the surface is flexible, and unlike concrete, and asphalt will last longer.
