Resin Driveways Essex
Resin is a popular material that is used in many ways, including a property’s driveway and footpath. For many homes in the region of Essex, this material has certainly become a more preferred method due to many of it’s benefits.
This resin-bound mixture is made up of aggregate stones and resin. The aggregate stones can include anything from gravel, sand, slag, recycled concrete and crushed stone. It can be manufactured, natural or recycled, so it’s appearance can vary depending on what is used.
Resin-bound paving is a permeable paving solution and due to it’s flexible surface material, it can be more resistant to cracking or impact that could lead to it needing a replacement or fix.
Resin Driveway Colours
Due to the different aggregated stones available, the colours of the resin driveway will vary. We have a variety of different colours to choose from that can better match the overall appearance of your home when it comes to the exterior.
Here are some of the colours offered:
- Autumn Gold
- Brittany Bronze
- Chinese Bouxite
- Datex Golden Quartz
- Datex Pearl Quartz
- Daltex Silver

With such a variety of colours to choose from, many opt for resin driveways and footpaths because they have much more versatility in colour palettes.
