Not sure what you guys are on about I had a Resin Bound driveway done 4 years ago and its absolutely fantastic Never seen a weed or a bit of moss EVER . Resin Bound drives are porous so the water drains straight through and into the natural water table unlike the bonded drives. My drive was about 100m2 and it cost me about £4900. As long as the levels are correct you will have no problems whatsoever I have seen some horror stories about Bonded drives where the stones come off There are loads on the internet. Not going to mention any names but Resin Bound is the only application to have as it is so hard wearing and looks wonderful. My neighbour had just had his done by the same company and paid around the same as me although had a few quotes in offering to do the job at a much cheaper price but having seen mine over the last 4 years went with the same people. You only get what you pay for I guess

Dear all, I felt that I must ad to thread that if a resin driveway weather resin bound or bonded is installed correctly and a good quality resin is used as well as a good clean aggregate then there should be no problem. Unfortunately like many trades, over recent years there have been a few people that have professed to be able to undertake the installation and process of laying resin bonded driveways just to earn a quick bit of cash and have used either cheap resin or an aggregate that didn't come from a reputable supplier.

The art of in stalling a professional Resin Bound Surface or Driveway comes from many years in the trade/game and can not just be picked up over night or even learnt from a few days training, you need to employ an experienced company that has many years experience, which brings me to why I have added to this thread and am willing to answer any of your questions.

For note only have I been installing Resin Bonded Driveways for over 15 years but also Resin Bound Driveways and Permeable Driveways. I hold the U.K and European patents in Resin Bound Paving as well as trademarks and have installed many hundreds of Resin Drives, Resin Bonded Driveways and Resin Bound Driveways.

Please take a look at our Website http://www.theresinbondedslabcompany.co.uk and or if I can be of any assistance to anyone then please ask and I shall try and answer all your questions.

Just had one done 5/6weeks ago, it's the porous type. We have a problem in that it smells a lot, particularly when the weather is dry, sunny, windy etc. We accepted that there was a smell initially after it had been laid but now after 5/6 weeks it is no better. Any ideas why this should be and how long it will take for the odour to cease. I assume the the resin has to cure?
Thank you

Hi, my name is John Webb and I've done driveways for the last 35 years and resin bound is the best driveway product I've ever used its longer lasting than any driveway product I've ever used. I done my first resin driveway 13 years ago and still to this day there's not a weed,sink,or crack or colour loss or stone loss don't understand why so many people complaining on this site about resin bound when it is the best driveway money can buy think all if you's need change your builders/ pavers (www.johnwebbpavingcontractors.com

I have a simple 'all concrete' drive. Its been there 50 years. Would never have any other material. I can remove anything that drops onto it very easily. Its functional and can take 7 ton trucks.

Appearance ... I don't look at it and if others don't like it then tough, it works for us.
