Resin is fast becoming the surface of choice, because of its great appearance and very low maintenance qualities. It is also meets building regulations because it’s a permeable Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) surface that helps to reduce flooding and water quality.
Typically, when rain water runs off a traditional impermeable surface such as block paving, it can pick up nasty pollutants and oils which flows into drains and rivers. This has an impact of local wildlife and the fishing industry.

What Issues Can Arise From Resin?
Resin itself is fine, its how its installed, here are some of the issues that can arise:
1 – Base, if laid on concrete it can expand in hot temperatures, there needs to be careful consideration of where the cuts are as these can overlap.
2 – Streaky Driveways – you need to ensure resin is installed on a warm sunny day to ensure the driveway will dry out and not cause stains.
3 – Mixing aggregate with the crumb, too short the resin will not be thick enough, too long the stones will embed in the resin, this is why you need to ensure you are working with an established and reputable resin driveway company.
