resin surface information supplied

A recent enquiry asking for details on a price was outside our area of work. However with over 14 years experience we are quite  happy to provide resin surface information as follows:

Can you supply an approx quote  for resin bound?  I have a triangle drive Approx 6.7x 8.2 x 8.6m.  Currently it is tarmac on hardcore (good condition)  with tar/lose chips on top. I live in the South of England

We replied as follows with the following resin surface information


Apologies for the delay. We are based in Mansfield Nottinghamshire so you are too far for us to be able to complete works. Based on the details you have provided you are looking at approximately 60 sqm  so if you were to base this on a price of £70 per sqm ( I have allowed for a higher charge for your area)

You would be looking at just over £4k for this area

 Can I just point out though if you put porous (which resin bound is) on to non porous (which tarmac is) where does the water sit when it permeates through the bound?

There are a few things to consider when completing resurfacing works and with regard to existing surfaces.

  •  New surfaces can affect the existing levels
  • If a permeable is added to an impermeable  how does this affect porosity.
  • Is the surface subject to moss and algae increasing slipperiness and weed growth
  • Do you need to have a low maintenance surface ?
  • If a porous surface is used will it take the weight of a vehicle.

We would resurface (if the surface is suitable ) with resin bonded as opposed to resin bound for a number of reasons

  •  It uses existing surfaces as the support  for the weight of traffic
  • It does not affect existing levels
  • It is not subject to moss and algae or weed growth and is anti slip.
  • Is virtually maintenance free
  • It is an impermeable surface


There are national companies who may be able to help, and it is always wise to ask for an example of works completed in the area. and  and Addagrip  are 3 I can think of immediately.

If you were to look at resin bonded  you should be looking at a lesser cost but it is actually a more durable product (originally road surface spec)

As a guide you should be looking in the region of £45 per sqm.   There is a bit more info on our site on a resin post

Feel free to have a look round.   We at Drive-Cote Ltd try and provide information for clients to make their own informed  choice where possible.

Good luck.”
