Many homeowners invest in a brand new attractive driveway not only to show off to the neighbours but to give the entrance of their home a more welcoming presentation. With a wide variety of paving products and ideas available one of the most important parts of the transformation is the preparation of the base. After all the chosen paving product to finish your new driveway is only as good as the base, it is laid upon. Resin Install ltd has made it easier than ever to ensure your home and garden is the best it can be, our groundwork and landscaping teams are some of the best in the business.

At Resin Install we prepare all our, driveways, paths and patios for private and domestic customers, There is no need to look elsewhere. We can install drainage systems and soakaways, recess covers and eco drains; all part of a system that will help to prevent any issues with whichever type of driveway you choose to have installed.

We carry out everything from a small one car driveway and garden paths to a complete excavation of private roads and car parks. When preparing a driveway, we initially survey the area by checking levels and any drainage problems that may occur. If your chosen finish is a resin bound driveway, we will ensure it is fitted in accordance with the SUDS building regulations, = No planning permission.

Careful preparation and construction of any groundworks is essential to a new driveway, path or patio.

If you attempt to cut corners on your project costs by using poor quality materials, then you could find yourself with future issues. We ensure that all our groundworks are constructed to the correct depth and build-up, therefore meeting the requirements of any project.

Depending on what surface is already on your driveway and whether or not you would want an extension, we can lay either a concrete or tarmac base to prepare for a resin bound finish. Block paving, flags or Indian stone would be fitted onto compacted level sand, 

We can provide a ten-year guarantee with confidence on all our driveway and resin bound surfacing projects because of the high standards we insist upon. If your new driveway is to be installed on an existing garden, we remove grass and topsoil up to a depth of 250 millimetres, then we install drainage if needed and edgings. We fill in the excavation up to a thickness of 150 millimetres with a sub-base, then install a tarmac or concrete base, once set we will then finish with your chosen resin bound mix.

When installing one of our resin bound driveway, paths, patios or car parks we develop the groundwork’s specification to use a type 3 MOT sub-base material. This is because of the highly porous nature of the resin material. A resin bound surface offers convenience, longevity and is extremely cost-effective.

The Resin Install team can fit decorative edgings such as block paving and kerbs to establish a professional and aesthetic finish. Or our teams can install a resin bound border separated by aluminium trim, whatever vision you have in your mind our teams can make it become a reality. have a look at our picture and video gallery to get an idea of what we can do for you
