Resin driveways in Cork has become a very popular option for customers looking for a long term and durable finish on their driveway. At Excel Driveways, we certified at installing resin bound on driveways, patios and gardens.
Resin driveways are laid on top of an existing base with a uPVC bonding agent and a chip finish. The chip finish can be decided from the samples we provide to help you find an option which suits your home.
We provide options on bordering for your resin driveway which can be done using a stencil border or another product such as a block paving edge or kerbing.
How We Install Resin On Driveways
- If this is a new installation, where you need to replace the existing driveway, the first step will be to completely remove the old driveway.
- A new base will be inserted (crushed limestone) which will be heavily machine compacted to ensure a solid building base for the new resin driveway.
- We will then apply either a concrete base or a permeable tarmac base to the driveway. The different choices comes down to surface and if the surface can be directed away. Aside from the permeable vs non permeable choice, the end effect will be the same.
- We ensure the new base of either concrete or tarmac is set to the required levels, is clean and has hardened adequately. We then apply a bonding agent over the driveway to ensure the new surface will bond correctly.
- We then will begin the mixing of the resin with the chip you have chosen. This mixing is done in a special mixer where a uPVC bonding agent is applied to the chip.
- This is then spread over the driveway using a two phase approach. The first phase is applied with a rake to give an approximate level and a the second phase is done using a steel float to ensure a smooth and level finish.
- Once this is done, it can take upto 2 days for the resin to harden enough although this is weather dependent. Once complete, you are free to use or park on your new resin driveway.
