Resin Bound Overlays


Resin Driveway Overlay. Using Resin Bound Aggregate

Driveways are the first thing someone sees as they arrive at a house, and it's usually one of the first images that can make or break the curb appeal of a home. It's no wonder why so many homeowners are quick to find a solution to a cracked, irreparable driveway. And why resin bound overlays are becoming more popular with good reason.

Resin Drive Overlay Over Concrete Or Tarmac –  Not All Concrete And Tarmac Surfaces Are Suitable For A Resin Overlay. 0800 7723586

When considering a resin bound driveway overlay, the first thing we will examine is if your existing surface is structurally stable. If there are any huge cracks that cant be cut out and repaired, then it’s probably not a good idea to resin bound overlay. If the current driveway moves below the new resin, this could cause your new surface to move or fracture.

Secondly, attention must be given to surface water drainage. If there are existing puddles of water after a downpour on a concrete or tarmac surface, then water isn’t draining away. So, if the resin is laid on top of such a surface the water will sit between the concrete surface and your new resin overlay. There are still alternatives that don’t involve ripping up your existing driveway but each drive is different, so this will be addressed at the first on-site meeting.

Over 85% of all tarmac or concrete driveway overlay requests from customers can go forward with no problems what so ever, again this will be advised on the first official meeting with a Resin Install representative, we will advise you on what’s best after seeing the state of your current surface first hand.
