Resin bound stone is the latest innovation in the paving industry. As with any new product, people expect it to cost the earth however, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
When the product first entered the market it was used almost exclusively by Councils and architects on large building and community projects however, developments throughout the last ten years have paved the way for change. Since then, the popularity of this product has grown exponentially and made resin bound stone accessible for everyone.
In the short-term, it may well be the case that resin bound stone is comparatively more expensive to alternative paving solutions i.e. block paving or tarmac but most individuals regard their property as an investment. Using natural aggregates ensures permeability, flexibility, durability and most importantly, the guarantee that it will not fade over time. These factors, combined with the potential ability to overlay resin bound stone on top of an existing surface, can not only extend the life of a tired looking driveway but also increase property value for an excess of 15 years.
The cost of a resin bound driveway will depend on several factors:
- Preparatory work/edgings
- Size of the area.
- The depth and colour of aggregate
- Non UV/UV stable resin
- Any specific features to be added
