Nightmare Resin Driveways Gone Wrong
Resin bound paving is an excellent alternative to paved, tarmac or gravel driveways and is the perfect way to add a bespoke touch to your property. Providing excellent drainage, a resin driveway is permeable, reducing flooding risk, whilst also being a smoother, more stable surface than gravel. So it’s more than ideal for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Small stones are fixed together with high-tech resin to provide a durable surface with no loose stones. Resin driveways are low maintenance too, as the surface minimises ice and puddles, whilst also reducing mould and weed growth.
Why You Should Always Trust Professional Installers
When resin driveways go wrong, the results can be disastrous. We have helped thousands of customers across the UK to repair sub-standard work carried out by unprofessional driveway installers. We’ve seen poor surface preparation, bad installation, the wrong choice of resin, uneven surfaces and the wrong aggregate to resin ratios, all resulting in an unusable driveway and extra expense for the customer.
What Happens When Resin Driveways Go Wrong?
When things go wrong with your resin driveway, it could end up costing you time and money to fix. If laid in wet weather, foaming can occur that can be costly to repair and you may need to pay for the cost of installing an entirely new driveway.
Issues can occur when the aggregate to resin ratios are off too, and the wrong choice of resin for the stone below can lead to sub-standard results. Preparation is key, and by failing to prepare surfaces and ensure they’re even, the installation of a resin driveway could go badly wrong.
Choose an Accredited Company
