Prepping Your Home for a Resin Bound Driveway

A Guide to Ensuring Perfection

Deciding to enhance your home with a resin bound driveway is not only an aesthetic choice but a commitment to quality and sustainability.

These driveways offer a blend of durability, permeability, and a bespoke finish that truly elevates the curb appeal of your home. However, like all good things, the perfect finish requires meticulous preparation.

Here’s how you can ensure your home is ready for its transformation with our resin driveway prep guide.

Assessing Your Current Driveway

The initial step in your driveway renovation involves a thorough assessment of the current state of your driveway. It’s essential to identify and repair any cracks or uneven surfaces.

This foundational work is critical; it ensures the longevity and durability of your resin bound surface.

Practical Considerations and Precautions

When considering a resin bound driveway, there are several practicalities to keep in mind.

Weight Tolerance

Our driveways are designed to endure; however, extreme weights, such as those from heavy lorries or skip wagons, require protective measures.

If you’re planning any significant construction or landscaping projects, it might be wise to schedule these before your driveway installation to avoid any potential damage.

Resin Driveway Prep

Installation day requires careful planning. The resin bound material sets quickly, allowing light foot traffic within 4-6 hours under ideal conditions.

Yet, vehicles must stay clear for at least 24 hours. This necessary pause in driveway usage means you should consider alternate parking solutions and property access for this brief period.

Our team is on hand to find a solution that minimises inconvenience, ensuring smooth access to your property throughout the installation process.

Wildlife and Weather Considerations

The great outdoors doesn’t always cooperate with home improvement plans. Local wildlife, including pets, may unwittingly leave a lasting impression on your new driveway.

Furthermore, the sleek finish of a resin driveway can become slippery when wet; regular maintenance is key to preventing this. For those prioritising a non-slip surface, we offer alternatives that ensure safety without compromising on style.

Maintenance for Longevity

Resin bound driveways are celebrated for their low maintenance, yet no driveway is completely upkeep-free.

In shaded areas, moss can find a foothold. While our driveways withstand pressure washing, we recommend professional cleaning services to thoroughly remove any moss, dirt, or debris, ensuring your driveway remains in pristine condition for years to come.
