Is your current driveway tired, dated and cracked? Or is it too small to provide guaranteed off-street parking for your entire household? Whether you want to replace or extend an existing driveway, or install an entirely new one, our resin-bound surfacing makes the perfect solution. D & M Resin Driveways Ltd uses decades of experience to provide start-to-finish management for your project, ensuring impeccable standards at every step.
Based in Derby, our landscaping company covers locations across Derbyshire, including Ilkeston and Swadlincote. However, we undertake work further afield in Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire too.
With a wealth of benefits, resin-bound systems are rapidly becoming one of the most popular surfacing options in the UK. The installation process starts with clean, dry aggregate and a clear resin. We combine the two ingredients, mixing them until all the aggregate has a coating of resin. Next, we pour out the resulting mix on to a solid base, typically concrete or asphalt. We then evenly smooth the material across the base, creating flat, immaculate resin driveways.
This multi-layered structure creates a driveway with outstanding durability, functionality and a truly attractive finish. With a range of colours and textures to choose from, the upper aggregate layer creates a warm, stone appearance that fits seamlessly with your home’s existing aesthetic.
Because our landscaping company coats each individual piece of aggregate with resin, every inch of your finished driveway is bound together. This means you don’t have to contend with loose chippings.
First, a cured resin-bound drive has an open matrix. This gives the surfacing high porosity. As such, when it rains, water drains through the surface and back into the ground beneath. Because this promotes fast, easy runoff, resin-bound driveways decrease the likelihood of damaging, unsightly puddles. In turn, this allows you to maximise the lifespan of your new driveway.
Of equal importance, any new driveway with porous qualities automatically complies with the government’s SUDS guidelines. This means you can install your new surface without the need for planning permission.
Second, our resin driveways look great. Your drive sits in a prominent position at the front of your home or place of business. It’s impossible, then, to overstate the importance of aesthetics when it comes to surfacing such a highly visible feature.
The immediate increase in kerb appeal is one of the key reasons why resin-bound surfacing has become so popular. But these surfaces don’t simply look good, they have impressive longevity too.
Our landscaping company alters the thickness of your driveway to suit the vehicular loads you plan to put on it. Once cured, the finished surface, be it in Derby, Ilkeston or the neighbouring areas, has more strength and resilience than concrete. The UV stability also offers additional protection against damage and breakdown by the sun.
Finally, resin-bound driveways have low maintenance needs. A combination of sweeping and power-cleaning on a semi-regular basis is enough to keep your driveway in optimal condition for many years to come.
For added peace of mind, resin-bound surfaces are naturally slip-resistant too, making them perfect for sloping driveways in any weather.
D & M Resin Driveways Ltd also excels at block paving installations.
