Resin Bound Driveways
This type of driveway are the more expensive style of resin driveway in that the gravel stone is mixed with a resin mixture in a mixing device similar to a concrete mixer, this mixture is then poured on to a sub base such as compacted hardcore or tarmac, it is laid to approx 2 inches depth and levelled with a levelling rake then smoothed with a specialised trowel.
Resin bound driveways are (SUDS) compliant, Sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) are a natural approach to managing drainage in and around properties and other developments. In new developments this is a legal requirement.
These types of driveway come in all types of colours and an array of styles and really do make your property stand out from the crowd.
Resin Bonded Driveways
Resin bonded driveways in Hertfordshire are a lot cheaper than their resin bound cousins, the way these driveways are installed is basically a resin is smoothed over a hard standing such a concrete or tarmac and then the stone gravel is then scattered across the resin, binding to the resin, this has its drawbacks in that the gravel stone can come loose over time and because there is a layer of resin there is no drainage as in resin bound. There are not many styles other than different colours that you can have due to the installation of the drive however as explained it is far cheaper.
