What are resin pathways?

Resin pathways are paved surfaces made using a mixture of resin and dried aggregates. The resin applies to the prepared base, and the aggregate is then scattered and levelled on top, creating a bonded and durable pathway.

Why you should consider resin bound pathways

There are many advantages to having a resin bound pathway at your Tyne and Wear property, and you should consider the following benefits:

Guardian Resin

Resin pathways provide a sleek and modern look, enhancing the overall visual appeal of your outdoor area.

Resin pathways are highly durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, making them ideal for high-usage areas.

Resin pathways are relatively low maintenance, requiring minimal cleaning and upkeep compared to other paving options.

The seamless nature of resin pathways makes them resistant to weed growth, reducing the need for weed control, in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Resin pathways are permeable, allowing water to drain through the surface and minimising the risk of standing water or flooding.

This article on how resin driveways are permeable goes into more detail on how resin is permeable.

Resin pathways offer a wide range of design possibilities, including a range of colours, contrasting styles, patterns and various aggregate materials; ensuring the ability to customise your pathway.

  • Schedule a consultation with the client to assess their requirements, preferences, and site conditions.
  • Discuss design options, colour choices, and any specific features or considerations.
  • Conduct a thorough site assessment to evaluate the existing pathway conditions, including the base, drainage, and any necessary repairs.
  • Clear the area of any obstacles, debris, or vegetation that could interfere with the installation process.
  • Prepare the base by ensuring it is stable, well-compacted, and free from any cracks or major damage.
  • Address any issues, such as unevenness or poor drainage, through proper grading and levelling.
  • Install suitable edging or borders along the sides of the pathway to define the area and provide structural support.
  • Select materials that complement the resin surface and enhance the overall aesthetics.
  • Apply a primer to the prepared base to promote adhesion between the resin and the surface.
  • Accurately measure and mix the resin and aggregate materials according to the manufacturer's guidelines.
  • Pour the mixed resin and aggregate mixture evenly onto the prepared base, starting from one end of the pathway and working towards the other.
  • Use specialist tools to spread and level the mixture, ensuring a smooth and consistent finish.
  • Pay attention to details such as blending different colours or incorporating desired patterns, if applicable.
  • Tidy up the edges of the pathway, ensuring a clean and neat appearance.
  • Use a roller or trowel to ensure proper compaction and to achieve the desired texture and surface finish.
  • Allow sufficient time for the resin to cure and harden, following the manufacturer's recommended curing period.
  • Conduct a final inspection to ensure the quality of the installation, addressing any minor imperfections or touch-ups if necessary.
  • Remove any excess resin or debris from the pathway and surrounding areas.
  • Restore the site to its original condition, minimizing any disruptions or mess caused during the installation process.
  • Provide the client with instructions on how to care for and maintain their resin pathway.

Understanding the drawbacks can help you make an informed decision regarding the suitability of resin pathways for your specific needs.

Initial Cost: Installing a resin pathway can be relatively expensive compared to other paving options.

Professional Installation Required: Resin pathways require professional expertise for proper installation to ensure durability and longevity.

Curing Time: Resin pathways typically require a curing period before they can withstand heavy loads or foot traffic.

Potential Discolouration: Over time, resin pathways may experience some degree of colour fading or discolouration, especially when exposed to direct sunlight.

Resin paths are known for their durability and can last for many years. With proper installation and maintenance, a resin path can typically have a lifespan of 15-25 years or even longer.

Factors such as usage, weather conditions (including wind and rain), and maintenance practices can affect the longevity of the path, but this is a durable solution.

Regular cleaning, occasional resealing, and promptly addressing any minor repairs can help extend a resin path's lifespan.

Yes, a resin pathway can add value to your house. Resin pathways offer aesthetic appeal, durability, and low maintenance. They create a sleek and modern look that enhances the overall curb appeal of your property.

Potential buyers often appreciate the benefits of a resin walkway, such as its long-lasting nature and resistance to cracks and fading.

Yes, it is possible to resin over the old tarmac. Resin bound systems can be applied directly onto a prepared and suitable tarmac surface. The key is to ensure that the existing tarmac is in good condition, free from significant cracks or damage.

You should undertake the necessary repairs before the resin application.

Proper cleaning and preparation are essential for a strong bond between the resin and the tarmac. Whether you are transforming your home property, car parks or commercial areas, installing a reliable permeable solution is rarely a bad idea.

To see the difference a functional and permeable solution makes when laid by professionals, contact Guardian Resin today.

Yes, resin is generally more robust than tarmac or block paving. Resin pathways are known for their durability and ability to withstand heavy loads. They have high tensile strength and are less prone to cracking than tarmac.

Resin surfaces also offer better resistance against UV fading and require less maintenance over time. However, it's important to note that the strength of the resin system can vary depending on the specific product and installation work.

No, resin bound gravel is not possible. Resin bound systems require a solid base like concrete or asphalt. However, resin bonded systems can be used with gravel.

Yes, UV stable resin is more expensive but offers good value. UV stable resin resists fading and keeps the surface vibrant, reducing maintenance needs and potential repairs. If you don't use a UV stable solution, your surface might discolour over time.

Yes, we are suds compliant for car parks, homes and business properties, offering a reliable and durable solution. These surfaces don't require planning permission.

When it comes to a hard wearing flooring system be it resin pathways in Tyne and Wear or resin bound driveways, Guardian Resin is second to none.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, a resin pathway can be laid over an existing surface like concrete or tarmac, provided that it's in good condition. However, any cracks, unevenness, or drainage issues in the existing surface must be fixed prior to the resin installation.

Yes, resin pathways are slip-resistant due to their textured surface. This makes them an excellent choice for outdoor applications where safety underfoot is a priority, such as around pools, on driveways, or in public walkways.

Yes, resin pathways can be repaired if they're damaged. Minor damages can be patched up by professionals, while more severe damages may require a larger section of the pathway to be replaced. It's always best to consult with your installation company for any repair needs.

While underfloor heating is typically associated with indoor flooring, it is technically possible to install under a resin pathway. However, it's a complex process requiring careful planning and installation. It's important to consult with a professional to discuss feasibility, costs, and potential implications.
