What is Resin Bound?
Resin Bound is a mix of natural aggregates which have been placed into a resin compound. This is one of the most permeable driving surfaces on the market as the gap between the aggregate materials is not closed. Once the installation has been completed, our resin bound surfaces will look fantastic.
There are many benefits to installing a resin bound driveway, path or patio. The first benefit is that they will look great for many years and require little maintenance. Our resin driveways, paths or patios are an ideal solution as water can drain through the surface into the ground. This driveway, path or patio type does not require planning permission.
Natural Plant Resin
Natural plant resin is constructed from natural plant resins and stones which will be blended with a catalyst which changes the material's composition.
No Need for Planning Permission
A resin bound driveway, path or patio that is compliant with SuDS offers a substitute for channelling rainwater into the drainage system. Water will flow under the ground as if there was no driveway surface on top. Our resin bound surfaces are SuDS compliant and do not need planning permission.

Why go Resin Bound?
The Longest Lasting Surface
The quality of resin bound surfaces is undeniable, and the they will last for many years to come. The materials used in every installation has a degree of flexibility which allows for small heating and cooling movements. As time goes by, the driveway will cope with the cold and heat without cracking.
Environmentally Friendly Surfaces
The amount of rain recently has led to government restrictions on homeowners to prevent them changing the drainage pattern of their property if they are covering soil/grassy areas which help the water drain in a natural fashion.
Our surfaces will allow water to soak away naturally.
UV Stable Resin
We provide a UV stable option for our resin ensuring that your new drive looks great for years.
Regardless of whether your resin bound driveway, path or patio receives sun or shade, our UV filter will stop the sun from fading your new resin bound surface.
