FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between Resin Bound and Resin Bonded?
So what are the differences between the two? They’re mostly similar in their non-fade ability and seamless appearance. However, with Resin Bonded, it’s not permeable, and it’s also not resistant to frost either. It takes off all the boxes when it comes to resin bound, including being slip-resistant and weed resistant – much like the resin bonded.
It’s up to you which one you choose, but they both provide many preventions that other driveways might not. Resin Bound does seem to come out on top when comparing the two. But, it’s worth thinking about the finish you’re after and whether you want that rough appearance of the stones on top or underneath.
Regardless, when picking someone to do your Manchester driveways, the choice should always be us!
How much does a resin driveway cost?
When looking for resin driveways near me, it’s essential to realise that it’s hard to price up material like this because every project is unique depending on what the client wants. It might be that they wish for particular materials to be used, so the resin’s pricing becomes less or more expensive. Typically, it would cost you around £50-70 per m². Again though, several factors may influence the overall pricing of it.
Some of those factors will be the size and layout of the driveway and the choice of materials. The depth needed is also something to consider, as well as the type of resin used. Transport and labour costs will also be factored in, depending on where you’re located.

Resin-bound paving is long-lasting and durable. It can last for more than 25 years if installed and maintained correctly.

Many of us have a fascination with using jet washes. Perhaps it’s the beautiful cleaning effect that it can provide on surfaces you thought always looked the way they did until you used the pressure washer on it. When it comes to a resin driveway, you’re able to use a jet wash where necessary.
However, it’s essential to take care when jet washing not to damage the area. Even the most durable surfaces can be impacted, so it’s worth taking a look at how to use a jet wash in the right way so that you can clean the driveway but not cause damage that requires maintenance.
