The benefits of having a resin driveway

Learn what the benefits are to having a new resin driveway installed at your property.
Resin bound driveway

R is for resin and more specifically, high quality UV stable and extra strength resins manufactured and tested to the same standard as market leading-products. The HMS 6.5kg two-pack polyurethane binders offer excellent performance against UV discolouration and embrittlement, which has been proven in laboratory testing!

E is for easy application. Our Decra®Set resin bound paving is specially formulated for ease of application at both hot and cold temperatures, whereas some other lower quality products may become too stiff, or too watery, causing difficulty for the installer.

S is for service. Whether this is the knowledgeable customer service you can expect to receive when calling our head office or visiting our showroom, technical information and guidance provided by our resin specialists or unrivalled attention to detail provided by our in-house NVQ qualified installers. At HMS top quality customer service is our number one priority.

I is for individuality! At HMS we have a wide range of specially selected super-washed and dried natural stone, granites, flints, marbles and slate products, all certificated and ready to be blended into your individual mix design, bespoke to you and your project. Or if that sounds like a bit too much effort, come and choose from our own blends of over 30 different colours and resin finishes. At HMS there’s something to suit every resin project.

N is for natural aggregates – whether you’re looking for sharp, contemporary greys, soft warm neutral tones, burnishes reds or vibrant golds, at HMS we have something for you. None of our extensive range of decorative resin aggregates have been dyed, bleached, treated or synthetically altered in any way. All of our aggregate products are 100% natural and designed to maintain their original appearance for years to come.

D is for driveways… and patios, footpaths, courtyards, roads, parks and practically anywhere else you would expect to find hardstanding! All of our products are designed to withstand vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and can be used in all domestic, commercial and industrial settings.

R is for ‘really’ making a difference to the visual appearance and drainage performance of your surfacing. With our resin driveway products being suitable to overlay existing good-quality tarmac or concrete, transforming your tired blacktop driveway into a golden gravel marvel can be achieved in as little as 24 hours, and at prices from £15 per m², it’s cheaper than you think!

I is for initial enquiry… whether you chose to call, email or visit our large showroom here in the Midlands, we’re here to help you achieve the surfacing system you’re looking for as easily as possible. Information such as size, existing surface and location all helps us to help you, and if you have photos, that’s even better news! Our trained staff will be able to offer you an idea on pricing, discuss preparation and book site visits to get the ball rolling!

V is for versatility – our resin driveway can dramatically improve the appearance of all manner of projects from historical restoration such as our extensive works on English Heritage sites and listed buildings like Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and the Round Pond in Kensington Gardens, right through to contemporary and modern new builds such as Thames Cycle Link in Greenwich Village and Olympic Park. So whether you’re looking for soft, natural backdrop or a sharp, stand-out modernist finish, we can help bring your design to life.

E is for environmental impact – with our resin bound driveway product being certified as SUDS compliant, our water permeable product not only looks amazing but is helping the environment at the same time. Sustainable Urban Drainage helps alleviate pressure on mains drainage and sewers, prevents surface run-off and flooding, and dramatically reduces standing water and the possibility of frozen surfaces in winter months.  At HMS we’re committed to lowering our carbon footprint, by using only low emission vehicles, procuring locally, and reusing and recycling as much as possible.

S is for satisfaction – we want you to love the products and services we offer, whether it’s on a supply and fit basis for you or your business, or you’re buying our top quality materials for that landscaping or DIY project.  Working with HMS offers you the very best quality in materials, workmanship and service, regardless of the size or type of your project. With our experts on hand to offer guidance and support from start to finish, and insurance backed guarantees on all our products and services, you can buy with confidence.
