If you are investing in improving your home, you probably want an assurance that the product you choose will be durable, hard wearing and stand the test of time.
Whether you are replacing your garden, driveway or conservatory, durability is crucial to consider – especially when comparing costs. Where one product may be cheaper than resin bound gravel, it may not be as durable and you may have to replace it sooner.
Ongoing maintenance costs are generally expected when carrying out home improvements with external products, and homeowners are often made aware that, for example, paving stones or their patio may not look as good in 10 years time. However, with Resin bound gravel looks as good in 10 years time as it does when it is first laid, with minimal at home maintenance.
What are the benefits of resin bound paving?
Resin bound gravel provides an attractive alternative to gravel, block paving, concrete or decking. It mixes natural aggregates with resin to create a highly permeable, sustainable and long-lasting solution.
Resin bound gravel is multifunctional and can be used for driveways, patios, pool surrounds and garden pathways and steps.
Resin bound gravel is extremely durable and very little maintenance is required to keep it looking brand new. The paving is UV resistant, which means the colours won’t fade in sunlight, ensuring it stays looking new.
Because resin bound gravel is highly permeable, there will be no standing water to damage the surface. Lots of our resin bound gravel solutions come with a 15 year guarantee!
Maintenance costs of landscaping
When carrying out a garden makeover, pathways and patios can be redesigned using a number of materials including concrete slabs, flags, asphalt, decking or gravel. While these types of landscaping can look impressive, they also require a high level of maintenance and often don’t remain looking amazing for very long!
Weeds can grow in between the cracks and paving may not stand up against frost and other harsh weather conditions? Moss prevention is a big niggle for many gardens, and cracks in slabs and the thought of having to replace them may hang over any decision you make!
Gardens are difficult and expensive to maintain, so it makes sense to choose products which reduce the time and cost of maintenance. Resin bound gravel offers exceptional performance year after year and requires very little maintenance.
With only regular sweeping and occasional power washing you will be able to remove dirt and grime, and you’ll never have to worry about weeding or whether heavy rain will cause damage.
