Resin possesses superior qualities that set it apart from materials like tarmac and concrete. For one, it’s compliant with Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems. By mixing the aggregates with the resin, small voids are created in the mixture. Once cured, the surface boasts second-to-none permeability, so there’s no chance of puddles forming.
Water that drains through is filtered through the aggregates, removing oils and dirt. This water then seeps into the ground, where it helps to negate the ‘heat island’ effect that afflicts other surfaces. Groundwater is replenished, helping nearby plant life to flourish.
The smooth surface offers outstanding slip-resistance, and the strength of resin lets it support up to 30-tonnes in weight. So, it can be used for driveways that support multiple vehicles.
Total Flexibility in Design
The beauty of resin bound surfaces is the sheer flexibility in design that’s possible. Resin can be applied to existing surfaces, or we can create an entirely new surface from scratch. You will also have complete freedom in the aggregates you choose. We can mix and match the aggregates to create unique colour combinations to really make your resin driveway stand out.
Whatever look you’re hoping to achieve, the only limitation is your imagination.
Other Materials for Driveways
In addition to resin, we at CW Stanley can construct driveways from a whole host of other materials, including:
While resin driveways are by far one of the most attractive options available, there’s much to be said about tarmac, concrete, and block paving. We’ve discussed these options in further detail below, so if you’re considering either of these, read on, then get in touch with our Dorset team.
