Although they sound very similar in name, there are some crucial differences.
Resin Bound Driveways – With this technique the resin and aggregate are mixed prior to application. The mixture is laid evenly and dries to a very solid and highly uniform finish and texture. There is with the added advantage of the drive remaining completely permeable, making it safer and longer lasting.
Resin Bonded Driveways – With this approach resin is applied over the driveway, followed by aggregate pressed into the upper surface. This can often lead to loose chippings and an uneven finish. There is the further disadvantage that water will no longer permeate the drive, leading to pooling on the surface.
At Nationwide Paving And Building we offer all types of resin surfacing, although we consider the ‘Resin Bonded’ approach to be slightly inferior.
