How Long Will My New Driveway Last?
When installing a new driveway, one of the main considerations is how long it’s going to last. A decorative driveway may seem like a pricier option than a tarmac or gravel drive. But when you consider the durability of resin bound driveways, it’s easy to see why they are such a popular choice. So, what factors can affect how long your new driveway will last?
Hire the Professionals
It may sound like common sense, but you shouldn’t try to install your resin driveway yourself, or hire a company that doesn’t have experience working with this type of material. Doing it yourself may seem like a great way to save money, but in the long run your driveway could require more maintenance and repair. This is especially true if the resin isn’t laid over a properly prepared surface.
Here at Yorkshire Resin, we offer a complete package from design and installation of your driveway, all the way through to aftercare. This will ensure your driveway stays looking as good as it can be, for as long as it can do!
Choose the Best Material
Your choice of material will have a direct influence on how long your driveway will last. Although it costs a little more to install a resin bound driveway, you can save money on maintenance costs in the long term. In fact, choosing to install a resin driveway could save you up to 50% when compared to block paving or tarmac drives. Resin driveways have no loose stones, so it’s easy to hose down or sweep your driveway to keep it clean.
Because water doesn’t pool on the surface, weed and mould growth is also reduced. A professionally installed resin bound driveway is exceptionally durable and can last up to 15-20 years. As a result, we offer a 10-year guarantee on all our resin driveway installations as standard.
Carry Out Regular Maintenance
Your driveway won’t last as long as you hope for, if you don’t spend some time maintaining it. Resin driveways are a lot easier to maintain than a paved or gravel driveway. You can hose the surface down or sweep debris away to ensure your drive stays looking as good as new.
As you can see, there are many factors which can affect how long your new driveway lasts. One of the most important considerations is ensuring your drive is professionally installed by experts.
