You and your guests will be practically dancing up the driveway in delight when you let Staffordshire Driveways install a new resin driveway.

However, like with any major purchase, there are several key questions you need answering before you take the plunge. That’s why we have compiled this comprehensive guide on resin driveways, giving you the lowdown on everything you need to know. 

What are the benefits of a resin bound driveway?

Where do we start?! When you install a resin bound driveway, not only are you getting a driveway that is smoother and more aesthetically pleasing than David Beckham and Barack Obama put together, you will also benefit from a virtually maintenance free driveway. A resin driveway is also 10 times eco-friendlier than concrete and will leave your drive virtually weed free! Plus, you will benefit from a 15-year guarantee, so what’s there not to love?

Can you lay a resin driveway on top of concrete?

Yes. Concrete and asphalt are the most suitable base for a resin driveway.

How long will a resin bound driveway last?

If cared for properly, a resin driveway could last you and your family for more than 25 years. It is a long-lasting durable surface that can withstand the elements and challenges that modern life can throw at it. However, should the unexpected occur, you can rest in the knowledge that we offer a 15-year guarantee as standard.

What colours can I choose from?

We offer a wide range of colours and textures to choose from so you have a blank canvas to work from. Whether you want your driveway to complement or contrast your property, we can certainly help you achieve the driveway of your dreams.

Can weeds come up through a resin driveway?

No, they can’t, as all weeds will be killed before the driveway is laid. However, that’s not to say that air born seedlings won’t land on top of the resin and cause a small amount of growth. In this instance it is always worth treating your driveway with weed killer at least once or twice a year.

How do you keep a resin driveway clean?

A garden hose or jet wash will ensure your resin driveway looks immaculate every day of the year. Due to the bonded nature of the resin, liquids can easily pass through. However, do be careful when it comes to oil spills and dirt. The sooner you take action the easier it will be to remove them. Your average household detergent will suffice and leave it for around 15 minutes to take effect. Then simply hose it down with clean water. Your driveway should be as good as new.

Can you pressure wash a resin driveway?

Yes you can! Just don’t get too wet and wild!

Are resin driveways slippery?

Thanks to the permeability of our resin bound driveways, the risk of standing water forming on your new driveway, thus turning to ice in the winter, is significantly reduced. However, in extreme conditions ice can still form. Fortunately, this can be resolved with a light bristled sweep.

How long does it take for a resin driveway to set?

This ultimately depends on the size of your driveway, but most driveways will be able to walk on within eight hours, on average. However, we would recommend slightly longer before you park your vehicle on it. Our usual guideline is 48 hours.

How much does a resin driveway cost?

Surprisingly not as much as you would expect. It all depends on the size of your driveway and how much work we need to do in order to prepare the area for the resin driveway. For a FREE quote, contact Staffordshire Driveways today on 01543 229143 or email sales@staffordshire-driveways.co.uk
