At Resin Install, we understand the importance of a beautiful driveway being the main focal point of your property. This should not be undermined. A driveway is the central, focal point of the front of your home, a well-designed driveway adds charm to your property and can be crafted to complement the existing features of your house and front landscape. 

At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss a driveway as merely a place for cars. however a driveway is the first thing a prospective buyer sees when viewing your home, and should be invested in accordingly. 

Parking space comes at a premium, creating an addition to an existing driveway ideal in this respect.

Yet the benefits of a professionally installed driveway are more manifold than you might believe.

We explore the importance of a great driveway in forming first impressions, as well as how resin is becoming the multi-purpose material of the future.

     First Impressions Matter

    Driveway looking tired? Invest and give it a much-needed revamp.

    Before you begin, you should aim to judge your existing driveway, paying specific attention to any signs of wear and tear, and how you could address them.

    Of course, it can be tempting to try and patch up any cracks with temporary D.I.Y. solutions, but your focus should be on the future, and what may be cheaper initially, can suddenly turn out to be far costlier in the long-term.

    Moral of the tale? Invest in your driveway today and set yourself up for long-term success.

     -Parking Problems Sorted

    If you live in a larger city, the chances are that adequate, off-road parking poses persistent problems.

    For some homeowners, the only answer is to park several streets up from their property, which is not only inconvenient but also serves as a substantial security risk too, with your expensive vehicle well out of sight.

    For others, problems arise with the purchase of an extra vehicle, with the current driveway not providing adequate space for an additional car.

    In this case, an existing driveway can be easily extended to accommodate two vehicles, freeing up your garage to be re-purposed for another project.

    -Failproof Functionality

    A fantastically flawless form may be visually enticing, but it needs to be matched by failproof functionality for your driveway to stand the test of time.

    Resin’s natural resilience means that it maintains the power to withstand all weathers. Unlike traditional materials, such as concrete, resin isn’t prone to cracking, thanks to its cellular composition.

    In addition to this, resin is also fully SuDS compliant, enabling water to drain away naturally, preventing pooling and puddling in the process.

    -A Unique Driveway Makes You Stand Out From the Crowd

    In a competitive property market, a distinctive driveway puts you an advantage of the game.

    If other neighbours in your area are also selling their home, you want to ensure that your home is the one that attracts their interest.

    So how do you go about it?

    Put yourself in the spot of a potential buyer: You want to achieve the best value for your budget, yet both, you want a home that you can walk into straight away.

    As the entry to your property, the driveway serves as the focal point, forming the viewer’s opinion of the interior before they’ve even set foot inside.

    Drive buyer decision-making on the right track by investing in resin.

    SuDS Compliance

    SuDS compliance has been mandatory since 2008.

    In simple terms, SuDS stands for Sustainable Urban Drainage System, and refers to a natural approach to controlling drainage in and around properties, to prevent possible flood risks, and pollutants from infiltrating excess groundwater.

    This advantage of this enhanced permeability leads to a pleasing improvement in safety, with the water draining through effectively, therefore reducing slips and skids.

    As a material, resin is entirely SuDS compliant, which in light of the legislation, adds further appeal to those looking to purchase a home that adheres to the latest specifications.

    -Choose Low Maintenance Material

    A driveway that requires minimum maintenance is likely to attract.

    For those with reduced mobility, the constant upkeep needed by traditional driveway materials can prove challenging.

    In both instances, resin bound paving presents an ideal solution for homeowners, restricting free weeds and requiring only a simple jet wash to keep it in tip-top condition.

     -Resin Provides a Multi-Purpose Solution

    Although other materials have thier worthinesses, resin provides a multi-purpose solution to relieve all manner of problems.

    Aesthetically talking, resin showcases a smooth and modern finish in a wide range of colours and styles to suit both historic and contemporary homes.

    But we don’t want to provide you just that. Below is a combination of some of the other brilliant advantages you can get with resin:
