resin driveway industry

The  resin driveway industry is very active at the moment and this evidenced by the wide ranging enquiries we have been receiving all year. This interest in the resin driveway industry ranges from residential to commercial from pathways to forecourts and from care homes to stately homes.  There does not seem to be any hotspots (area wise)  which shows how wisdespread and more common place the use of resin is for both existing and new surfaces.

We had a recent enquiry (out of our work area)  asking for a reputable company local to them.  Unfortunately we are not able to recommend as we are not affilifated to any company withing the resin driveway industry


Thanks for the email and apologies for the delay.   It is difficult to say  who is reputable as we have been working with resin for over 14 years now and have seen a lot of fledgling companies come and go.

Are you looking for bound or bonded?  Or do you know the difference (and there is bit more info on our site for you on resin bonded versus resin bound)  and that can have a bearing on the company you would choose.

We are an independent company and are not affiliated to any large concern or any other resin company.  So it is very difficult for us to “recommend”.  See our post on “credible installer

We do tend to say have a look locally for commercial works and see if they can help.  If not they may a man who does as they say.

Also the more you look round the more you will see examples of work.  Supermarkets use bound for the treepits for example.

There are three large national Companies  who we tend to refer people to as a starting point – and .

I think some of these train installers so that may help.

We have a leaning to the bonded as our business is founded on reusing existing surfaces rather than the new install systems meaning a non porous surface onto a  non porous surface (concrete tarmac imprinted concrete). Resin bound is porous and in our experience is subject to the freeze thaw process which is how tarmac gets  potholes and concrete spalls so with resin bonded it prevents the ingress of water.

There are different qualities and different properties for each product

  • Resin bonded                                                    Resin Bound
  • Non porous                                                        Porous
  • Anti slip                                                              Additives may be required
  • Can be completed in a day                             Needs more preparation work
  • Can be virtually weed free                             Can be susceptible to weed moss and algae
  • Can be virtually maintenance                       Needs some maintenance.

I would just start and have a look more local and you will see there are a lot more resin works completed commercially so even if the installers are only  commercial they may be able to recommend a residential installer.

Ask your local highways who installed locally on the roads and they may be able to help as a lot of commercial companies work alongside residential installers within the resin driveway industry.

Remember one shoe does not fit all, so any company worth their salt will advise not sell.  It depends what your surface is, what the drainage is like why you want the Resin.
