Why a resin driveway lasts longer than block paving – Block Paving VS Resin Bound

Does your block paving drive look worn and faded? A resin driveway looks effortlessly modern, complimenting your property in a way that adds style and value. It’s also long lasting, practical and low maintenance making it the ideal choice when you come to renew that old block paving drive.

What is a resin driveway?

Resin driveways are a mixture of the natural stone of your choice with durable resin. Once laid this forms a permeable surface for driveways and paths that is resistant to cracking so it keeps its good looks for much longer. And because its laid as a seamless sheet there are no cracks where unsightly weeds can get a root hold.

Why do resin driveways last longer than block paving?

A resin driveway can be installed in a fraction of the time that it takes to lay out a block paved drive but lasts considerably longer. That’s because of the durability of the materials used – heavy duty resin and natural stone – and the fact that they won’t fade or displace like concrete block paving. Your resin driveway can be laid over virtually any existing substrate for added stability and it won’t settle or crack causing an uneven and visually unappealing surface.

Gravel driveways are often a preferred aesthetic thanks to the natural materials and wide array of colours available. By binding gravel with resin we can create a drive that looks stunning yet preserves all the hard wearing features of natural stone with none of the maintenance. Bonded in place, your driveway gravel won’t migrate over time and will keep looking beautiful for years to come.

What makes a resin driveway the smart choice?

When design flexibility, low maintenance and long lasting practicality are important, a resin driveway is the smart choice. The smooth and non-slip surface isn’t just ideal for cars, it’s also perfect for pushchairs and mobility access. Fully permeable to both water and air, this type of driveway minimises puddles and inhibits the growth of mould and weeds. Your drive won’t crack when the temperature plummets and is easy to keep clean with a domestic power washer – and there’s no need to replace infill afterwards.

If you want a driveway that looks as stunning every day as the day it was laid, then you need a resin driveway. Combining the beauty of authentic stone with the durability of UV stabilised resin, you can create a beautiful bespoke driveway installation that outlasts a block paving drive and gives your property the wow factor.
