If you are looking to have your driveway resurfaced or looking to get a new driveway altogether, the first thing you need to decide on is what type of driveway material you’d like to use. A popular choice with homeowners these days is resin driveways, which combine the beauty of natural stone with the durability and cost-effectiveness of concrete to create an exceptionally beautiful result that will last for years and years to come! But how much does it cost? Are there different types of resin driveways? And can anyone install it?
What Is A Resin Driveway?
Resin driveways can be used to resurface existing concrete driveways or pave new ones. These products are made of polyurethane-based plastic bound with sand and aggregate. Installing a resin driveway yourself will save you money but if you do not have experience working with masonry products, you may want to hire contractors to help with your project. The costs of resin driveways vary depending on whether they’re applied over an existing surface or as part of a new construction project. This can also impact final costs because contractors often charge per square foot or day rate for their work; however, in general, hiring professionals can save you time—and possibly money in the long run—when doing projects like installing resin driveways in your home. You may want to consider asking about package deals that include installation costs when considering quotes from contractors. Another thing to keep in mind when comparing quotes is that experienced installers may be able to complete resin driveways more quickly than newer workers so you’ll likely pay less per hour even though they’ll bill at a higher rate. Resurfacing an existing driveway: If your current surface needs only minor repairs, such as filling small cracks and holes, resurfacing could be more affordable than replacing entirely. You’ll need a simple assessment by a certified installer/project manager before beginning work since these projects require removing old paint, then cleaning (pressure washing) and sealing both sides of surfaces before laying down multiple layers of resin primer and topcoat or stamping patterns onto freshly poured resin products.
Why Choose A Resin Bound Gravel Driveway Over A Traditional Poured Concrete Driveway?
If you’re wondering whether or not to choose a resin-bound gravel driveway over concrete, here are three main benefits to resin driveways: more environmentally friendly, cheaper upfront and easy to maintain. What’s more, unlike concrete that cracks over time, resin bound gravel driveways hold their shape for many years without breaking down. Resin-bound gravel is one of the best options for homeowners who want an eco-friendly surface that has plenty of positive features. If you’re planning on paving your driveway, consider using polymer concrete instead of traditional cement. Here’s why so many people make that switch: it’s cheap, tough and maintenance-free – all in a beautiful finish! We seal all our driveways with a water-based sealer and recommend maintaining this at least once per year with these types of installations due to dust build-up which can leave stains on surfaces if not regularly sealed. To summarise the main benefits of resin driveways are;
- Is incredibly cost-effective in comparison to traditional methods.
- Is longer lasting stronger preservation
- Maintenance of a resin will fight off weeds
How Much Does It Cost To Install A Resin Bound Gravel Driveway?
You can choose between Asphalt driveways, concrete or stone – so there are several options when it comes to materials you use for a new driveway. While each of these offers distinct advantages, they all cost a pretty penny. Even with initial cost in mind, choosing asphalt can be cost-prohibitive depending on your region. A new asphalt driveway could end up costing thousands of pounds in materials (and that’s before labour). The cost will vary depending on your location and project management, but with resins, you can install an entirely new driveway for far less.
How Do I Budget For The Project And Get It Done On Time?
Project management (PM) is the process by which the project owner sets out to achieve the project’s goals, managing time, cost and quality of a project to fulfil requirements. When planning your resin-bound gravel driveways, we’ll need to know how long you’d like the work done, what materials you’re using and other important details. To schedule your project properly on time and budget, we recommend working with us from start to finish so that all aspects of your request are clear and ready for installation on the agreed-upon date. We’ll keep you updated every step of the way through emails or phone calls so that you always know where we are in the process.
What Are The Options When It Comes To Decorative Edges Of My New Resin Bound Gravel Driveway?
This is where project management comes in handy. A good contractor will give you many options when it comes to decorative elements for your new driveway, keeping your cost down while still giving you something that looks beautiful. For example, we’d access your current drive and the work involved along with the costs of various materials. So if stone veneer or curbing isn’t in your budget, We’d consider thin edge-lit accent lights that go on at night – they come in many colours and don’t require any digging or installation. Our Project management approach also makes sure that you don’t feel rushed into choosing details before you’re ready, which helps keep costs down. We’re also fully licensed and insured to give you peace of mind.
