How much does a resin driveway cost?
This is a very popular question asked, either over the phone or searched for on the internet. Many different factors and the levels of service expected determine the overall square meter price of a new resin driveway or garden patio area, so, please keep reading to understand the contributing factors that can determine your final overall per square meter price.
So you’re planning to install a resin driveway – good choice! Chances are, you’ve settled on resin because of its durability – but also because you can create colourful designs and patterns. This allows you to make your driveway totally unique. Maybe now you’re starting to wonder just how much this is going to cost and if it represents value for money compared to other types of driveways.
Unfortunately – the question is very much how long is a piece of string? Because resin driveways are so bespoke, no two projects are ever the same. This means there’s no ‘one price fits all’ when it comes to working out how much your new driveway is going to cost. So what should you expect to spend on a resin driveway?
You may have even not considered the extra costs that impact the overall cost of installing a new resin driveway that includes your choice of finish, is it UV stable? and drainage needed.
What Factors Influence Cost?
There are a number of different things which can influence how much your new driveway is going to cost you:
- Size of the area
- Size and required depth of aggregate
- The existing surface you have – for example tarmac, concrete or a grassed area
- Your colour and design preferences
- Whether you prefer UV stable or non-UV stable resin
- If edging is required
- What the layout of your driveway is
Because resin driveways are all different, we provide all our customers with a totally free, no obligation quotation and onsite survey. So let’s look at how these different things can impact the amount your driveway will cost.
What's Your Existing Driveway Surface?
Whether you currently have a tarmac or concrete drive, block paving or even a grassed area – all of these will affect the cost of your new resin driveway. The amount of time for preparation, cleaning and surface repair will vary depending on the existing surface. For example, we’ll spend more time excavating and preparing a stoned or grassy area. With concrete or tarmac, we can lay aggregate and resin right over the top, providing the base is in good condition.
Unlike some other companies that simply brush away debris and hose down the existing surface, we take time to ensure the base is in good condition. This helps to prevent problems further down the line with your resin surface.
We provide a power cleaning service every subsequent year which includes any remedial works needed, such as removing weeds and repairing cracks and potholes, to provide the best possible base for your new resin driveway.
How Unique Will Your Driveway Be?
The more unique you want your drive to be, the higher the cost will generally be. This is because you may wish us to install edging for a clean, professional finish or to provide distinction between various areas of a pattern or design. If you’re opting for a colourful pattern, you may find yourself paying a little more for UV resin that provides protection from discoloration and fading.
