The popularity of resin-bound driveways and resin-bonded driveways has increased over the years. This is due to several factors, including durability and aesthetic appeal.

These surfacing options have their pros and cons. 


Resin-bonded driveways are made by spreading aggregates over a layered resin. These can get loose over time, which can affect driveway appearance.


Resin-bound surfaces are more durable, but the resins and other components that make them aren't always sympathetic to the environment.


Block Paving

Block paving is an excellent driveway surface choice. It can look amazing when adequately laid. Block paving can be prone to weeds because of the small block gaps. You might spend most of your summer fighting off unwanted visitors to your driveway.
