Our customers can be assured of high clarity colours that will not fade over time. BoundTex UV is a water-permeable surface meaning the resin-bound surfaces we install are compliant with all building regulations.

Resin Bound Driveways are increasing in popularity as they are a long-lasting attractive alternative to traditional gravel driveways. Resin-bound driveways are made from specially treated and dried natural stone (which is available in many colours) and a stable UV resin compound.

We are committed to ensuring our work is completed to the highest possible level and in accordance with building regulations. The standard of resin drive installation has and will continue to be of the utmost importance to our business.

The stone is thoroughly mixed together with the resin and is then applied to the base the end result is a high end and attractive seamless gravel surface.

Resin bound driveway installation in Ashford, Kent

Resin-bound or resin bonded what’s the difference?

The two materials
Sound similar however there are major differences concerning the drainage, bases, and composition of these two surfaces.
 
Resin-bound driveways
Are permeable meaning that water simply drains through the surface
 
Resin-bonded driveways
On the other hand, are non-permeable meaning that separate drainage is needed in order to effectively drain the surface.
 
Resin-bound driveways
The aggregate gravel and resin compound are mixed together and then laid on a prepared base.
 
Resin-bonded driveways
Resin is laid directly onto the base the gravel is then spread or broadcasted on top of the resin.

One benefit of this system is the fact that existing tarmac or concrete pathways or patios can be used as a base for resin bonded driveways this is provided the existing surface has been fully cleaned all traces of oil weeds and any other containment will need to be completely eradicated from the existing surface.

Before laying any cracks in the existing surface must also be repaired to achieve the best possible results if the existing surface is in any way porous a primer will also need to be applied. Any existing surface with joins such as traditional block paving is not deemed as a suitable base.

Once the preparation process has been completed G Mackett Construction & Groundwork Ltd can begin the process of mixing the Resin that is to be laid on the prepared surface when ready the self leveling resin is applied after 10 minutes the resin will have self leveled and the aggregate can be added or (broadcasted)
