Here at Resin Wize, we can provide both resin bound and resin bonded surfacing solutions. Both solutions are available for a range of projects, including driveways and patios. Deciding which solution for resin surfacing in London works best for you starts with understanding the difference.
A resin bound surface is one where the aggregate has been mixed in with the resin. This is then applied to the surface area and a trowel is used to flatten and smooth the area. Depths can vary with each surface but usually ranges from 12 – 23mm. A resin bound surface is porous and configured for Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).
In a resin bonded surface, however, the resin is applied first followed by a loose aggregate applied on top. This is done quickly as the resin has a short curing time. With this option for resin surfacing, London residents can combine different aggregates to achieve a unique effect. Any loose stones are swept away, leaving behind a surface with the appearance of loose gravel. The thickness of this surfacing solution is usually governed by aggregate size.
There is a wide range of colours to choose from, including:

The beauty of resin surfacing is that it can be laid straight over an existing surface such as concrete or tarmac. The only real requirement is that the current surface be stable enough to support the resin surface on top. If the foundations are found to be too badly worn, the existing surface would need to be stripped away and a new base prepared. We usually advise a new base as this ensures a longer service life.
Yes. Resin surfacing should never be laid on top of concrete slabs, block or crazy paving. The reason for this is that these aren’t uniform surfaces, rather, they consist of individual components which can potentially shift. Any such movements could cause the resin to crack compromising your driveway.
No. The resin we use is UV-stable, so it won’t fade or change colour even in direct sunlight. A resin driveway will sport the same eye-catching colours for the entire duration of its life cycle.
For paths and patios, a softer aggregate is often used which isn’t suitable. But, for driveways, a tougher, more hard-wearing aggregate is used which can withstand up to 30 tonnes of weight. This well exceeds the maximum weight limit of even the heaviest car. In short, resin surfaces can more than comfortably support one or multiple vehicles.
Here at Resin Wize, we are specialists in the design and installation of resin driveways. Every driveway is tailored to your unique requirements and there is a range of colours and finishes available. So, whether you have an idea or are in need of some inspiration, our team are here to help with your resin surfacing in London.
We will sit down with you to discuss all the options available to you and take accurate measurements of the area to be surfaced. Any other features, such as fencing, walls, and paving will be designed to complement the exterior of your home.
Our resin driveways usually take around 1-3 days to complete and, once finished, we will ensure the area is hosed down and left neat and tidy.
Patios are a highly popular addition to any garden area and, at Resin Wize, we can create the perfect patio with our London resin surfacing solutions.
