If you want to create a truly stunning entrance your house, then having a resin bound driveway could be the choice for you. Perhaps you've designed your own family coat of arms and you want the world to see it? There's no better way of achieving this aim than having it imprinted on the car entrance your home.
What is a Resin bound driveway?
A resin bound driveway is constructed by mixing a thick layer of aggregates with a resin binder. The stones or aggregates need to be between 3-5mm in size to ensure that they are adequate for driveway construction. The resin must be thoroughly combined with the aggregates before being laid to ensure a smooth and porous finish.
Why is it porous?
The porous element to a resin bound driveway is very important as it allows water to run off it. This means that you don't get so many puddles forming which can ultimately cause damage to your driveway.
What designs can I have?
With a resin bound driveway, the design options are pretty much limitless! You can choose to have one created out of natural stone, which will give a standard but elegant look. Or you could let your creative juices flow and have something completely unique designed for you. The beauty of a resin bound driveway is that it allows you to incorporate other materials into the base. This means that if you wanted a colourful surface with decorative glass incorporated in it – you can. If you want to have a certain pattern set into your driveway – that's achievable too. With a resin driveway gone are the days of the boring concrete or paving options, and here comes the revolution of style, colour and creativity.
How do you look after it?
Once your entry masterpiece has been completed, you'll need to make sure that you look after it properly. Not that keen on outdoor maintenance? Well rest easy because a resin driveway is so simple to look after. In reality it only needs to be washed twice a year and this can be made even easier by using a power washer. If you want to keep the sparkle, then you can sweep it was often as you want, but that's it.
Resin bound driveways are being the top choice for many people who want a driveway that will last for a long time and will look good in the process. What are you waiting for? Get designing and get one installed at your home.
