When it comes to resin bound and resin bonded paving, there is a lot of conflicting information out there, but if you ask us which is best, well, we’d say they’re both excellent products if specified and more importantly installed correctly.

As much as we definitely don’t think that one is superior to the other, one may well be more suited to your individual project, so here are some things to consider…

Does your project want or require these features…

  • Smooth, contemporary surfacing suitable for any hard landscaping use…
  • Fully porous, SUDS compliant surfacing…
  • Very low maintenance with zero stone migration and weed growth…
  • Brilliant for patios, children’s play equipment, and footpaths as well as vehicle use…
  • In which case you may want to consider our Decra®Set resin bound paving!

Or maybe your requirements are a little more like this…

  • A decorative surfacing material that gives unrivalled slip resistance in a huge range of colours and finishes…
  • Can be overlaid to existing good-quality tarmac or concrete for a budget friendly transformation…
  • Totally sealed non-porous material which not only looks amazing but will protect and extend the life of the underlying subbase…
  • Suitable for all types of hard landscaping, especially driveways, footpaths and other high traffic areas…
  • If this sounds more like your project, you may wish to explore our Decra®Stone resin bonded options!

In summary we think both our resin bonded and resin bound paving products are excellent quality and value for money. Both materials feature not only similar attributes, but also have their own distinctive characteristic to fill the brief of any hard landscaping project. Created using commercial quality resins and specialist super-washed and dried decorative aggregates, whichever of our products you choose you’re guaranteed an excellent result.
