Installing a resin bound drive featuring dried aggregates will not only protect your home against flood damage, it will also enhance the look and feel of your entire property.
Create a high end resort feel at home
Traditional outdoor surfaces such as cement or block paving don’t stay looking new for long. Especially as they are prone to cracking and always end up with weeds sticking out of every nook and cranny.
Durable and easy to maintain resin bound surfaces can last for up to twenty-five years, and create stunning vehicle parking areas, driveways and walkways. Plus to give your home real kerb appeal, the surface and colour of the dried aggregates can be specifically designed to highlight your property’s features and exterior colour scheme.
Protect your property against flooding
Unlike hard standing surfaces, a resin bound drive is water permeable. So when the surface solution is applied to an appropriate base, heavy rain will no longer form into puddles. As a result any excess water will simply flow into the ground or nearest storm drain.
Plus when the sun is shining your resin drive won’t fade or discolour in UV light; making it an ideal surface solution for not only vehicle driveways, but alfresco dining areas and swimming pool surrounds.
For the best results hire a resin specialist
To ensure your property achieves the right kind of wow factor. Your new resin drive will need to be professionally designed and installed.

So the weather must remain dry and temperature can’t fall below zero.

Once the work area is cleared, your resin bound drive will be laid against a secure edge, such as a wooden fence, solid wall or set lawn border. So provided the weather remains suitably dry, your resin specialist should be able to finish the work in only a few days.
