Resin Driveway Maintenance
Low maintenance is probably the reason that resin driveways in Durham are so popular at the moment.
However do not be fooled by resin driveway companies claiming that resin is maintenance free, if it is neglected it can still become a habitat for weeds and algae.
Unlike block paving, resin bound driveways do not have sand joints which are the perfect habitat for weeds instead they have tiny little cavities between some of the stones or aggregates.
These cavities take a lot longer for tiny weed roots to take hold and this can be avoided by sweeping the area with a stiff brush to ensure that any airborne detritus from birds or trees do not settle into the resin bound surface – prevention is always better than cure.
Sweeping is the only regular maintenance needed to keep your resin driveway looking pristine however there are certain circumstances where the driveway will require extra cleaning work.
