Guide to understanding Resin Bound Permeable Driveways
Home driveways are an integral part of our homes. It is the first thing people see when they see you at home —a first impression that can tell your visitors a lot about your personality even before they enter your house. Because first impressions can have significant effects, you should pay as much attention as you can to your driveway. Ideally, your driveway should look clean and in the best condition. Types of driveways you can have at your home include the Resin Bound Permeable Driveway, Grass Surface, Loose Gravel, and Plastic Grid driveways.
All of the driveways mentioned above are Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) compliant, meaning they help reduce flooding, protect infrastructure and protect water quality. We've only listed types of driveways that are friendly to the environment because they give the best value for money. They all reduce the amount of water that enters drainage systems but promote water soaking back into the earth, which can then be collected in porous surfaces like ponds. Yet, among all these environmentally friendly driveways, Resin Bound Permeable Driveways are the best. Aside from being environmentally friendly, they come with numerous other benefits. Let us discuss Resin Bonded Driveways in a little more detail.
What is a Resin Bound Permeable Driveway?
Resin bonded driveways are beautiful and permeable driveways that consist of a clear resin used to bind gravel and other aggregates together. They are easy to install driveways that allow water to drain naturally. Components of a Resin Driveway include a sub-base, a base, and a resin surface.
The sub-base material depends on traffic volume on the driveway and the anticipated load it will carry. These materials can be macadam, concrete, or tarmac. The base is the layer atop the sub-base layer, while the resin surface is the uppermost layer of the pavement. A high-quality resin is used to "glue" aesthetic gravel or fine aggregate to a firm base (usually concrete) or bind together selected aggregates before laying over a surface or sub-base. These materials are hard-wearing, low maintenance, and ultraviolet (UV) stable. Resin Bound permeable driveways do not discolor from the sun's ultraviolet rays' impact because of the UV stable resins used. Also, because they are SUDS-compliant, homes with Resin Bound Permeable Driveways do not face the problems of puddles, standing water, or flooding because the driveway allows water to pass freely through the surface.
Resin Bonded Driveways are quick and easy to install. The smooth resin bonded surface is dry and usable within a couple of hours after installation. Here are some other benefits of having resin paving for your home.
Benefits of Residential Resin Bound Driveways
No issues with regulatory authorities
Because resin bonded driveways are SUD compliant, you will not run into issues with environmental regulatory bodies and town planning authorities when installing one at your residence. Usually, SUD compliant installations do not require prior approval for installation.
Resin-bound driveway surfaces are robust, durable, and resistant to all weather conditions. Unlike non-resin-bound surfaces like asphalt, which freeze during cold seasons and soften when temperatures rise, resin-bound driveways are much more stable in extreme temperatures (whether hot or cold) and resistant to damage from the sun's UV rays.
Sustainable drainage system
Resin-bound driveways have a permeable sub-base. They're designed and installed to allow rainwater to collect through the resin-bound surface to the ground beneath. This sustainable drainage system prevents water run-off, pooling, and flooding, making it perfectly safe for the environment.
