Mr & Mrs Jenkinson

Resin Bound Driveway

Background

Mr and Mrs Jenkinson required a driveway extension so that they could fit their grown children’s cars on the drive, who had returned to live at the family home. Originally they thought they should have a resin bonded driveway so they were receiving quotes for resin bonded. It wasn’t until they received a quote from a Resin Mill Approved Contractor that they were informed that they had got confused over resin resin bonded and resin bound. Resin bound was therefore used for Mr & Mrs Jenkinson’s drive and required no planning permission. The tired looking front of the property was excavated in order to make way for the base for the resin bound aggregates.

The resin bound’s seamless finish really enhanced the look of the property, whilst creating extra space for the cars.

 

Resin Bonded Driveway

Resin bonded driveways are only suitable if there will be zero vehicle traffic because it is only suitable for light footfall. Bonded surfaces are not permeable so you would have to get planning permission for any driveway extension. Furthermore, the gravel in resin bonded isn't as secure as resin bound and so may loosen and chip vehicles.
