Check out the cost of installing Resin Bound Driveway in Hampshire and Surrey.
Is your current driveway starting to show signs of wear and tear? Are you looking for a way to maintain a beautiful home without the hassle of constantly maintaining a driveway? If so, a resin bound driveway may be the perfect solution. Unlike traditional driveways, a Resin Bound Driveway is low maintenance and should withstand even the harshest weather conditions. It not only looks great but it can also be installed in a variety of colours and thicknesses to suit any budget or taste. In addition to increased curb appeal, these features make Resin Bound surfacing one of the most popular driveway choices across Hampshire, Surrey and the UK. But what is the cost of a Resin Bound Driveway?
How Much Does a Resin Driveway Cost?
When it comes to estimating a cost per m² for a resin bound driveway, it is hard to find any standard pricing because every project is unique. There are so many variables that can change the price of Resin Bound Driveway projects. These include the choice of resin bound aggregate, design, size, etc. As a result, every project will have a different price, depending on the surface materials and amount of work needed.
Although many aspects come into play when pricing up a Resin Bound Driveway in Hampshire and Surrey, a good rule of thumb is typically around £160 per square meter (when the area is easy enough to access, and no drainage needs to be installed). Generally speaking, it is safe to state that the cost for a Resin Bound Driveway of 40 sq m ranges from £6400 (without drainage) to £8500 (including drainage and additional groundworks). As mentioned above, several elements affect these figures. Please read below and consider these factors when estimating the Resin Bound Driveway Cost.
Resin Bound Driveway Cost main factors explained.
Size and Design
One of the most important factors is the size of your driveway. The bigger the area, the higher the cost of a Resin Driveway. The square metre rate can reduce as the area increases. In addition to the size, driveways that are not traditionally rectangular or square, consist of several colours and aggregates requiring combining into design patterns, lead to longer labour times and higher installation costs.
Materials Resin driveway costs are determined by the price of the materials and vary based on the type of stones you choose. There are different types of aggregates, and they have different prices that depend on their availability and ease of sourcing, size, and colour. You can choose from ordinary, costeffective natural aggregate, luxury crushed, or unique marbles sourced from selected quarries in different countries (i.e. Italy, Spain). Driveway Depth Another important factor worth mentioning when determining the cost of a Resin Bound Driveway is its depth. There is a correlation between the depth of a Resin Bound Driveway and the size of the aggregate used. The rule of thumb is that the depth must be three times the largest aggregate size used. This means that the depth of a driveway installed with a 36mm aggregate should be 18mm. Condition of Current Driveway Having an existing driveway in good condition will reduce the project's overall cost as the current driveway can be used as a base. A qualified Resin Bound Driveway Installer, like Yew Tree Landscapes, should inspect the driveway's condition and consider any form of repairs, levelling, preparatory works that need to be carried out before installing a resin overlay.
SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage) Compliance
Resin Bound Surfaces are permeable and SUDS compliant. They have been developed to cope with any downfalls of rainwater, drain through the surface and allow water to flow effortlessly. If you plan to install a Resin Bound Driveway on top of an existing concrete surface, it means that the surface will not be SUDS compliant and will not assist the network of drainage systems hidden beneath. Why? It is because concrete is not permeable. Water can permeate through the resinbound surface but won't pass through the concrete base. To ensure your new driveway is SUDS compliant, there is a need for drainage installation, which adds to the overall cost.
As evident, many different factors go into determining Resin Bound Driveway Cost. We hope that knowing what they are and how they can affect the cost can help you estimate whether you should budget for the lower or, the higher end of the price range.
