There are a number of factors which determine the total cost for a new resin driveway installation, we have detailed these factors below so you ca get a better idea of how much you will be looking to pay for a new driveway surfaced with resin at your property.
The size of the area you would like to surface – A bit of an obvious one but the larger the driveway the more resin & aggregate you willl need, and the larger the area the longer the installation.
The type of driveway surface you have already – this plays an important role in the total cost of installing a resin driveway at your property. If your driveway is currently surfaced with concrete or tarmac you can quite literally lay the resin ontop of it after preperation of the existing surface resulting in a quick job, with no groundworks, no excavations & no aggregates needed for the foundation but if your driveway surface is for instance pebbles, grass or flags this would be a costlier option since the original ground would have to be removed to make way for a brand new base installation.
The type of aggregates you want to bind into the resin – Theres a plethora of colours and finishes when surfacing driveways with resin and as such theres a vast range of different gravel and pebble aggregates to mix with the bonded resin to create the desired finish. Aggregates vary in price so your choice of aggregate will effect the price of your new driveway.
