Can You Lay Resin Surfacing Over A Stone Driveway ?

Can You Lay Resin Surfacing Over A Stone Driveway

It’s said that having a posh vehicle parked on a driveway can make potential buyers sit up and take notice of a property – possibly even increasing the value of the property by £4,300! But what if that vehicle is parked on a less than suitable surface?

The driveway of a property is one of the first interactions that visitors will have with your home. It’s the place that you trust to keep your car safe and a true property asset in terms of practicality.

However, a large number of driveways are lacking that ‘wow’ factor. One of the best ways to rectify that, and make sure that the surface of the drive is up to par with the vehicle on top, is to use a resin surface.

This leads to the big question: can you lay resin surfacing over the top of an existing stone driveway? Let’s take a look…

While concrete is a strong choice of driveway material, the material is incredibly prone to cracking and other serious problems!

Assessing the Suitability of Your Existing Driveway

Technically, a resin surface can be laid over stone or even tarmac… but that’s not always the case. Whether or not you can lay resin over existing stone is determined by the suitability of the stone already in place.

Very often, homeowners are looking to cover a concrete driveway because it is either worn out and tired looking, they want to better customise the driveway to improve the look of their home, or the concrete is covered in blemishes.

While concrete is a strong choice of driveway material, the material is incredibly prone to cracking and other serious problems!

However, if the concrete is in good condition, then it can be covered in resin. This creates what is known as a resin bonded surface.

Resin bonded surfaces use the existing stone as a base and the resin and aggregate mixture is applied to the top of the surface. The end result is a great looking resin driveway that can truly enhance the exterior appeal of a property.

What If the Existing Driveway Isn’t Suitable?

If the existing stone is in poor condition, which many homeowners find is the case with concrete that has been left to battle the elements for years, then a resin bound surface is the answer.

A resin bound driveway is created by establishing a new base and laying a much thicker layer of resin and aggregate on top. This can be a blessing in disguise, as a bounded surface can be much stronger and have the benefit of being completely permeable.

Do Both Types of Resin Installation Still Have the Same Benefits?

One of the biggest differences between a resin bonded driveway and a resin bound driveway, is that the latter is much better for drainage. The permeable nature of a resin surface means that water can drain straight through, if concrete is blocking it, then a big benefit of resin is removed.

However, that’s not to say that there aren’t other great benefits on the table, no matter which method you choose. Some of the main benefits, include:

 No surface cracking
 Durable construction guarantees longevity
 Low maintenance for easy care
 No worry over weeds or puddles forming on the surface
 The driveway is installed very quickly

There is also the major benefit of high levels of customisation. Unlike stone driveways where you’re limited to a singular style, resin driveways come with a vast range of options.

Resin is also very versatile, allowing you to design the driveway of your dreams and see it easily realised.
