why resin bonded driveways? (and resin bound driveways!)
Resin-bound paving is a mixture of aggregate stones and resin used to pave footpaths, driveways etc. It is a flexible surfacing material, so is resistant to cracking.
The system is mixed on site and cold applied, using a high-quality clear resin binder to coat the aggregate particles prior to laying.
Unlike resin bonded surfacing where a thin layer of resin is applied to the surface and then the aggregate scattered on top (which can then become loose over time and is impermeable), resin and aggregates are thoroughly mixed together prior to laying – ensuring that the aggregate is completely coated and so providing a totally bound surface.
As a result, a resin bound surface is more durable and requires less maintenance – it needs to be swept or power washed at least twice a year, to avoid the buildup of detritus and prevent the growth of moss or algae.
Resin bound paving is a fully permeable paving solution which allows water to freely drain through the surface. Meeting the requirements of Sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) standards, this helps to prevent standing water and largely eliminates surface water runoff.
why block paving?
(and brick paving)
Block paving also known as brick paving is a commonly used decorative method of creating a pavement or hardstanding.
The main benefit of bricks over other materials is that individual bricks can later be lifted up and replaced. This allows for remedial work to be carried out under the surface of the paving without leaving a lasting mark once the paving bricks have been replaced.
Typical areas of use would be for driveways, pavements, patios, town centres, precincts and more commonly in road surfacing.
Bricks are typically made of concrete or clay, though other composite materials are also used. Each has its own means of construction. The biggest difference is the way they set hard ready for use. A clay brick has to be fired in a kiln to bake the brick hard. A concrete brick has to be allowed to set. The concrete paving bricks are a porous form of brick formed by mixing small stone hardcore, dyes, cement and sand and other materials in various amounts. Many block paving manufacturing methods are now allowing the use of recycled materials in the construction of the paving bricks such as crushed glass and crushed old building rubble.
Take a look at some of our testimonials
Tewkesbury Abbey had a concrete path which was in a very bad state of repair, we decided to have a new resin bound path and employed Ray from Resin Bound Driveway Specialist to undertake the work, we are very pleased with the path and the overall effect is attractive and pleasant to walk on, Ray and his team where hard working and conscientious, they even came back on a Saturday to clean up ! We are very happy with our new path and would definitely use this company again in the future’
Rebecca Duncombe, Fabric Officer for Tewkesbury Abbey
Ray and his team worked tirelessness laying my resin driveway and limestone patio. They were all very respectful and hardworking throughout the project. I found Ray to be approachable and responsive when discussing the progress and he kept me fully informed throughout.
As a pensioner, I was happy to accept Ray Walton’s competitive quotation for resurfacing my driveway with resin. One hears of rogue traders who try to add unforeseen “extras” to the final bill: Ray did precisely the opposite. He suggested an improvement to the original proposals, which meant additional time and materials, but did not charge a penny more. He even volunteered to dig up and dispose of some invasive plants while his team was on site.
Ray was polite and hard-working. He stayed cheerful and focused in spite of
We are very pleased with the work Ray did on our driveway. We had originally chosen a single colour but, at Ray’s prompting, agreed to a two colour finish which really adds to the visual impact at the front of the house. We also arranged for the existing block paving to be recycled to replace an existing gravel path in our back garden and that looks really good. Ray was courteous throughout and managed his subcontractors well.
