When it comes to upgrading your driveway, resin surfacing offers durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. But within the realm of resin driveways, there are two primary options: resin bound and resin bonded surfaces. Understanding the difference between the two can help you make an informed decision for your home.

Resin bound driveways involve mixing aggregate (such as gravel, stone, or recycled materials) with a clear resin binder before laying it onto a solid base. This creates a smooth, seamless surface that's porous, allowing water to drain through, minimizing flooding and puddles. Resin bound surfaces are highly decorative, with a wide range of colors and textures available, making them a popular choice for both residential and commercial properties.

On the other hand, resin bonded driveways involve spreading a layer of resin onto a prepared base before scattering loose aggregate over the top. The excess aggregate is then removed once the resin has cured, leaving a textured finish. While resin bonded driveways offer excellent grip and traction, they are not porous, meaning they're more prone to water pooling unless proper drainage systems are installed.

In summary, the main differences between resin bound and resin bonded driveways lie in their installation method, appearance, and drainage properties. Resin bound surfaces offer a smoother finish, are porous, and come in a wide variety of colors and textures. Resin bonded surfaces, meanwhile, provide excellent grip but are non-porous and require additional drainage considerations.
