Resin Bound Surfacing Specialists
Here at Dorset Resin, we’re proud to be regarded as the top resin bound surfacing specialists in Wareham. If you’re without a driveway and are considering having one added to your property, here’s why you should.
Driveways are a solid investment with great benefits, such as:
- Dedicated Parking Spot
If you were to park roadside, you’re not guaranteed a space, and if you find one, you might have to walk a minute or two to reach your car. This is hardly ideal when it’s pouring rain. Parking roadside also makes your car more vulnerable to damage, vandalism or being stolen or broken into.
Plus, you’re at risk, too, while stepping in and out of your vehicle, as you could be hit by a passing motorist.
With a driveway, your vehicle is well away from the hazards of the road. You have a dedicated parking spot just seconds from your doorstep. And cars parked on driveways are shown to be less likely to be targeted by thieves and vandals.
And when you select resin driveways, Wareham customers, built by the talented team at Dorset Resin, you’ll be investing in a surface that’s strong, durable, eco-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing.
Resin Bound or Resin Bonded Driveways
There are two types of resin driveway available, and both boast the same excellent strength, durability, and aesthetics. They aren’t entirely similar, however, with one fundamental difference – how they’re constructed.
We use the exact same materials – high-quality water-based BBA-approved polyurethane resin and aggregates of varying sizes.
For resin bound driveways, the clear coloured resin is combined with the aggregate in a forced action mixer. The mixture is poured onto the surface then raked, levelled, and trowelled into a smooth surface. Because the aggregates are mixed with the resin, this creates small voids through which water can pass.
As such, resin bound surfaces are Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) compliant and require no additional drainage as the surface is porous.
Resin bond driveways are built by first pouring the resin over the surface area. The aggregates are then poured over the top, and the surface is then raked, levelled, and trowelled. Once cured, loose stones are swept away leaving behind a rough surface.
Because resin bond driveways lack any voids, they aren’t porous, though they are less expensive than resin bound driveways, Wareham customers.
Approved Wareham Driveway Installers Near Me
We’re approved resin driveway contractors, widely recognised for the outstanding services we’ve provided customers in our years of operation. All our resin driveways, Wareham customers, are built with skill using premium-grade materials that won’t deteriorate or fail, even in extreme heat or through prolonged use.
Our resin driveways can comfortably support up to 30 tonnes of weight and are UV-stable, meaning they won’t fade or discolour. While many resin surfaces are built using one aggregate, we can mix and match three or four to create a unique appearance. And your new surface will outlast most man-made surfaces, like imprinted concrete.
When customers come to Dorset Resin, we can offer one of two construction methods – the method will vary depending on whether a suitable surface is present.
Complete Construction – if no suitable surface is present, we’ll start by excavating to a depth of 250mm. Any hard landscaping services are usually carried out before we move on to the next step. This involves rolling the area with a machine, and compacting the existing substrate before Type 1 stone (MOT) is laid, usually to a thickness of around 150-200mm. The area is rolled and compacted again before around 50-100mm of open-faced hot rolled tarmac/ C35 concrete is laid and rolled. The final layers are then added.
Existing Surface Overlay – if a suitable concrete, tarmac, or block paved surface exists, we’ll skip ahead to preparing the surface and cleaning it with a high-pressure jet washer system. We’ll then apply a primer, resulting in a tacky surface by removing any moisture. We then pour on the resin, rake, and level it to a thickness of 18-20mm.
We use resin to mass-fill dips or recessed areas, ensuring that the new surface is level and achieves parity with the correct gradients.
Once done, the surface is trowelled, sealing and closing the resin stone, ensuring a smooth finish that’ll last. Finally, the surface is jet washed, leaving it spotless.
Resin Bound Driveways Costs
The cost of resin driveways, Wareham customers, varies from one job to the next. There are various factors that’ll affect the cost, such as the size of the area, the time it takes to finish the job, whether complete construction is required, plus, any extras requested by the customer.
The average cost for a new sub-base is around £70 per m2, while the driveway itself usually costs around £110 per m2. These costs are ballpark averages put forward by Checkatrade and are correct as of 2022. Of course, if you want to know precisely how much your resin driveway installation will cost, the quickest way is to call us.
Here at Dorset Resin, we operate an honest and transparent service. Every job is different, so we charge each customer a fair price based on the work carried out. We’ll take measurements, assess which service you require, factor in any optional extras such as hard landscaping, and present with you with a fully itemised quotation.
All our costs are listed upfront with no hidden fees, so you know what you’re paying. Plus, our quotes are free of obligation, so you’re free to walk away. We’ll beat any genuine, like-for-like quote, however, so we’re confident you won’t find a better price anywhere else.
