What Is The Cost Of Resin Driveways?

Resin bonded driveways are incredibly cheap as compared to other alternatives. If you install the resin driveways on a pre-existing base, the price in tremendously reduced. Quantity surveyors estimate a cost of between £60-£80 per square meter on installation except for steps, walls and other special surfaces.

Resin bound driveways and more expensive £90-£120 than its cheaper resin bonded brother due to the sub-base that needs to be installed prior to the resin bound aggregate being laid on the top, this however is a longer lasting install and if done properly will last many many years and is well worth the extra cost.

FAQ’s

Which Is Better – Resin Bound or Resin Bonded

For me resin bound is by far the better of the 2 types of resin application, it is Suds compliant, it looks amazing with different layouts and styles, it last for many many years, 25+ if looked after.

Resin bonded is handy and looks as good but it goes over an existing base such as concrete or tarmac, it will not last as long but is a lot cheaper than its resin bound cousin, surface water will not drain away as easily as the resin is laid first creating a barrier between the original surface and the resin aggregate.

Do I Need To Have Planning Permission

If you are having a resin bound installation then you do not need planning permission as this type of resin application is Suds (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) compliant, which basically means the surface water is able to drain through the porous resin bound aggregate.
