Kent resin driveways are fast becoming the number one choice of quality paving for driveways across the county. There are unique designs and a wide range of colours to choose from. These designs and colours enhance the appearance of local driveways and provide excellent drainage for surface water.
In comparison to other driveway surfacing products resin provides a permeable surface that satisfies Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) regulations.
Laying a permeable resin drive is simple as gravel is mixed with a polyurethane resin and screeded to leave an even smooth surface that is both strong and long lasting.
Typically, a resin driveway surface is laid on top of an open grade tarmacadam surface but structurally sound concrete paving surfaces may also be suitable.
The end result is a smooth? A contemporary, hard wearing and low maintenance paving surface that will improve the look of your home improvements and add real VALUE.

Laying a Resin Bound Driveway –
A Quick guide
Laying resin bound driveway professionally requires the skill of a local driveway contractor who has the right experience and knowledge. With guarantees of up to 25 years you can rest assured that this paving surface is worth it, and should ‘stand the test of time‘.
Installation stages include:
- Driveway preparation including excavation and installation of sub base
- Installation of edging restraints. These can either be blocks or metal edging
- Compaction of Type 3 stone (this is a smaller grade of stone) to a depth of 150mm to 200mm
- Open grade Tarmacadam sub base
- Installation of resin bound paving surface
In comparison to other driveway surfacing options a resin bound installation is quick and straightforward. There’s no need for the installation of drainage. Light vehicular use of as many as 3-4 cars is possible and this is the most durable driveway surface of choice.
It’s also possible to have an overlay of an existing driveway, patio or pathway surface. But it’s crucial that a suitable sub base is place.
Caution is urged as we are often contacted by ‘unhappy’ homeowners that have gone for a ‘cheaper’ overlay option and been very disappointed with the results.
