Resin Bound Patios & Paths Edinburgh
Resin patios and paths are becoming increasingly popular, when you see one up close in person, the reasons for this immediately become apparent. Resin makes for a far better finish than standard concrete, gravel and tiled patios, often having a longer lifespan too. Next time you are out walking or driving in Edinburgh or your local area, pay attention to the increasing number of resin patios you see, considering they haven’t been around for very long.
The combination of rubber or aggregate allows for more colourful and qnique designs. Give us a call on 0141 280 6096 or complete our short form below so we can visit you to discuss more benefits of resin patios in person.

Anti-Slip Resin Stairs
As well as the obvious visual improvement on this staircase outside a flat in Edinburgh City Centre, they are now safer due to the anti slip properties resin provides.

Why Pay More For A Resin Driveway or Surface
oWhenever you invest in any more expensive and higher risk home & garden improvement, there are things many different things that you should put some serious thought and research into. For a new resin driveway, your initial design plan should take the driveway layout and hardstanding into consideration. The final outcome of your resin driveway will be determined largely by the quality of materials used to create the resin compound and how well it is applied and installed. Before you even start to think of the finish, you have to consider the base that you lay the resin on, which will determine the strength of the entire driveway structure. For maximum efficiency, always use machines and modern manual tools, digger buckets tend to do a better job. Whether you need to use machines will also be determined by the size of the driveway.
Whether you’re renovating or doing a new building, a Resin drive will give solutions to several issues year after year. With these, you will not only save money in the short term but also in the long term. This type of driveway doesn’t dis-colour and some of those who’ve used it go for a lifetime without even caring or maintaining it.
Advantages of choosing a Resin Driveway
The permeable surface
If you have a driveway that doesn’t allow for proper drainage, then, this will bring problems during the harsh weather. Resin drives are permeable to water and even air. This makes it so perfect as a driveway and thus many people have preferred it compared to any other. No one wants to install a driveway that they will keep repairing and replacing, nope and that’s why you should be careful- you could spend a little more on resin and save for the future.
Resin is compact
If you have tried a gravel drive, you know how inconvenient it can be. Not only does it have the potential to damage your car’s tires or even your friends’ but also will need replacement at least every year, something that is quite expensive and time-consuming. The resin drives, on the other hand, are bound with resin and therefore the no loose gravel. You only need to have it installed by an experienced resin driveways professional local to Edinburgh.
Resin is set in a way that is incredibly hardwearing and therefore it no matter the foot traffic or the many cars that get in and out of your driveway daily, this driveway stands strong and doesn’t wear out.
More flexible design choices
Unlike other drive choices like gravel whose likely choice is the type that you’re going to use, the resin has numerous choices that will help you personalize the front of your home. You can choose your preferred colour or pattern of the resin you want to be used for your drive. The bespoke nature of resin allows you to choose the design that impresses you. You could go for a single or a multiple colour drive. The most important thing here is to consult a resin-bound driveways professional in Edinburgh who will guide you on the design that befits your property.
Lower cost of maintenance
Whatever type of drive you choose will determine the cost of maintenance. If you choose tarmac or concrete drive, you’ll have a hard time repairing and replacing. With resin, you have a permanent surface and the only thing you will need to do is regular cleaning with a jet wash. Again, an experienced resin bound surface company will provide an anti-slip finish on your driveway so that people don’t slip in wet weather or when being cleaned.
You need no excavation with Resin
Many forms of drives will require that you excavate the area before installing them. That would mean you have to halt many things for it to be done. However, resin doesn’t require excavation and that means many other activities can still go on even as the drive is installed. Preparation of the surface is less time-consuming and therefore you have everything done in record time.
How to get the best drive with Resin
For you to achieve the best drive using resin, you need to consider the following vital factors.
Use a reputable installation company
There doesn’t seem to be a clear regulation on the resin-bound installers but that is not to mean every other company can do the job, nope. You have to do your research properly and ensure you get a competant resin surface installer. Ask friends and relatives for referrals, this is the surest way to get a good resin company. All you are looking for is an excellent outlook and this can be achieved by buying Resin from a reputable company and getting a good installer.
Use the right type of resin
There are many types of resins available in the market today. If for instance, you are looking for a dark finish, you will not need to worry about the UV light protection. However, if you want to have a lighter resin, then you have to look for one with UV protection. Again, the installer must ensure consistency in the way they install the resin so that there are no ‘lifting’ or patches appearing.
The stone size matters
A smaller stone size won’t allow for proper drainage and therefore you need to get a relatively larger stone. You can choose a full resin bound installation which will ensure you get the work done perfectly from the outlay. If you are changing your driveway from other surfaces like concrete or tarmac, you have to ensure all cracks are properly sealed. If no proper planning for the drainage, you risk having a crisis during the wet months.
Maintenance (or lack of) is paramount
With a resin driveway, someone could easily overlook it’s maintenance due to its perfect appearance. However, if you want this surface to serve you for the longest time, you have to ensure it is regularly maintained through cleaning which helps remove the build-up of moss and weeds. Without proper cleaning, the surface could also turn slippery. Maintenance will also depend on the foot and car traffic on your driveway; the higher the traffic, the more you should clean the surface.
When doing your driveway, you must bring several aspects into perspective; easy maintenance, durability, and installation. Resin drive is the most preferred surface for its simplicity and tenacity. Besides, you need to get quality materials from a reputable resin drives company in Edinburgh and choose an installer with the experience to ensure a great finish.
