A common question concerning Resin Bound stone driveways it relates to their ecological impact. Many are under the impression that Resin Bound stone is unsustainable and harms our environment. This strictly is not the truth.
The main argument in favour of Resin Bound stone is that it conforms to the Environment Agencies SUDs regulations, but it is essential to explore the meaning. SUDS stands for Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems. Any hard surfaces greater than 5 square meters must be permeable. It became a legal requirement starting in October 2008.
By mimicking natural drainage water flirtation, it acts as an acceptable way to manage the surface water.
While the current drainage regulations specify, the importance is there can't be a retrospective effect. Arguably If a driveway has pre-existing concrete and all homeowners chose to rip them up with a view to the more complimentary permeable approach the environmental impact will be much greater.
The primary solution lies with Resin Bound. If you have tired, cracked concrete this can be upcycled extending its life span for an excess of 20years.
In conclusion, resin bound stone is an excellent, fuss-free choice for the conscientious property owner. With several advantages, it contributes to flood and weed prevention, reduces water pollution and puddles. As the system is durable, it will not require regular replacement. The bulk of the materials are naturally sourced; thus the environmental impact is minimal.

Overlay paving is much more friendly on a project's time frame. The amount of work that it takes to lay paving over an existing surface is greatly reduced. This means that time can be freed up for other parts of a major renovation project, or that the project can be completed in a shorter amount of time. Usually resin install can overlay up to 300m2 surface area per day.
Overlay paving can be a perfect solution for jobs which need to be finished on a strict or quickly approaching deadline.
Because there is not as much waste when the method of overlay paving is used, much less garbage ends up being hauled off to the landfill. Usually a few pallets, plastic bags and resin buckets which are all recyclable. This makes the resin bound overlay paving more environmentally friendly than traditional paving methods.
In addition, when using a porous product like Resin Bound, water can be collected in a drainage channel and returned to the water table or used on site. This makes good use of resources and can also be beneficial to the project.
Overlay paving is cost-effective, time-saving, and environmentally friendly. It is definitely worth considering for your next paving project.
