Resin Driveways


Resin driveways are a popular choice for homeowners due to their durability and low maintenance requirements. However, proper groundwork is essential to ensure the longevity and stability of the driveway. Here are the steps involved in preparing the groundwork for a resin driveway:

  1. Clear the area: The first step is to clear the area where the driveway will be installed. Remove any existing paving, vegetation, or debris to create a clean and level surface.

  2. Excavate the site: Next, the site needs to be excavated to the required depth. This will depend on the type of soil and the expected traffic on the driveway. The excavated area should be well compacted to provide a stable base for the resin.

  3. Install a sub-base: A sub-base is essential to provide a solid foundation for the resin driveway. This usually consists of a layer of compacted hardcore or crushed stone. The thickness of the sub-base will depend on the site conditions and the expected load on the driveway.

  4. Edge restraints: It is important to install edge restraints along the perimeter of the driveway to prevent the resin from spreading out. This can be done using metal or plastic edging, concrete kerbs, or blocks.

  5. Prepare the surface: Once the sub-base is in place, the surface needs to be prepared for the resin. This may involve leveling the surface, filling any gaps or cracks, and ensuring that it is free from debris.

  6. Apply a binder: Before laying the resin, a binder is usually applied to the surface to create a strong bond between the resin and the sub-base. This helps to prevent the resin from cracking or lifting over time.

  7. Lay the resin: Finally, the resin is poured onto the prepared surface and spread evenly using a trowel or squeegee. The resin is usually left to cure for a few hours before it can be used.

By following these steps and ensuring proper groundwork, you can enjoy a beautiful and durable resin driveway for years to come.
