Resin-Bound Driveways and Patios

Some trends come and go, but resin-bound driveways and patios are here to stay. The aesthetic finish of resin-bound driveways is easily matched by the practicality of the even, strong, and versatile surface.

Not only are resin-bound driveways easy to maintain but they also prevent flooding as one of the best exterior surfaces for water drainage. Resin-bound surfaces are also perfect for swimming pool surrounds, paths, courtyards, and garage forecourts.

The Preparation and Application of Resin-Bound Driveways

To prepare the surface for the resin and aggregate application, the surface must be clean and dry. It is also crucial to ensure that the surface is structurally strong enough for the intended use; for example, for driveways, the surface must be strong enough to withstand regular use from cars and other vehicles. During your consultation, Atrium will check the structural strength and advise of the surface needs to be cured of moisture or oil prior to the application.
Before the application, aggregate and resin will be mixed before it is evenly spread across the surface area and left to dry; once dry, you will be left with an even, solid, and entirely water-permeable surface.

The day after the application, sweep off any excess aggregate, and you will reveal a smooth surface with the texture and appearance of loose gravel.

Advantages of Resin-Bound Driveways

 Resin-bound driveways are:

  • Durable enough to withstand regular use.
  • Easy to clean and keep in good condition – the aggregate will never come loose!
  • Customisable with a broad spectrum of aggregate colours to choose from.
  • Suitable for traditional and historic properties.
  • Resin-bound driveways are less likely to become slippery during wet or icy weather.
  • Resin-bound driveways typically last longer than tarmac driveways.

Tarmac Driveways

Think that tarmac driveways are only suitable for commercial use? You may want to think again after hearing the advantages of installing tarmac driveways to the exterior of your residential property.

Just like resin-bound driveways, tarmac driveways are easy to maintain and durable, which has made them a highly desirable choice to residential property owners. Tarmac driveways also share the same water-permeable and porous properties, meaning there is less chance of flooding or pesky puddles forming.

Atrium Building & Landscaping Ltd always ensures a smooth finish when laying down tarmac driveways, which will remain even and visually appealing for years to come. As local specialists of residential driveways, we can design your new driveway from scratch or help you to repair or resurface your existing driveway.

Tarmac surfaces are also highly recommended for children’s play areas and to homeowners wanting to install a tennis, basketball, or basketball court on their property.

The Preparation and Application of Tarmac Driveways

To prepare a surface for a tarmac finish, the ground must be excavated to the correct depth before temporary edging is installed to keep the tarmac in place. To strengthen the driveway base and minimise sinking, a geotextile woven membrane will be laid down beneath the crushed concrete which will be compacted and rolled out.

Once the concrete surface is even, drainage infrastructure and chosen edging will be installed and the base layer and top layer of the tarmac can be laid out.

Advantages of Tarmac Driveways

Tarmac driveways are:

  • Easy to repair.
  • A cost-effective and affordable solution.
  • Easy to customise with block paving edges or kerb stones.
  • Quick to install – most installations are completed within a day.
  • Highly durable.
  • Porous enough to avoid puddling.
  • Easy to install in most driveways.

Block Paving

Block paved paths, driveways, and patios may be more expensive than tarmac or resin-bound aggregate surfaces, but they are still a popular choice nonetheless due to their versatility, visual appeal, environmental sustainability, and durability.

If you want a custom finish, trust Atrium Building & Landscaping Ltd to design a block paving installation that will have your neighbours talking for all the right reasons. Despite the highly aesthetic design, they can withstand copious pedestrian and motor traffic – there is a reason why some airports use block paving on their runways! Many homeowners also see block paving paths, patios and driveways as an investment that will ultimately increase their property value.
