residential resin driveways
Country life wrote an article back in 2012 which included residential resin driveways and the benefits particularly with regard to the anti slip properties
For more complicated driveways, those that have a steep incline, or for anyone looking for a low-maintenance option, probably the best option (albeit the most expensive one) is resin-bonded gravel. ‘For a senior house with a senior approach, this is the best long-term solution,’ believes Mr Eddell. It involves laying normal Tarmac with fine gravel bonded onto its surface, so that it looks like gravel. Even if it doesn’t sound quite right, it’s aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain. ‘It looks the part and doesn’t wash away,’ says Russell Hill of Haringtons UK. ‘You’re left with a gravel feel, and it solves the problem of sloping drives.’ Another added advantage is that, during dry weather, there isn’t the issue that’s commonly found with gravel driveways of dust being kicked up by cars. ‘Picture a lovely manor house. The owners are having breakfast outside in the summer when the postman arrives in a cloud of dust,’ cautions Mr Eddell. ‘With a resin-bonded driveway, this won’t happen.’ A cheaper (if less elegant) finish would be to mix the gravel with some tar to hold it in place. This can also be used on sloping driveways, adds Edward Heaton of Property Vision”

A senior house with a senior approach!
Over the years we have been recovering surfaces – concrete, tarmac and imprinted concrete (in particular) for not only the ant slip properties but the maintenance free qualities.
