The Importance Of A Great Looking Driveway


We know that a Driveway is something that home owners and property owners very rarely think about, we are always thinking about what we could do in the home rather than out side it. A driveway is a very important aspect and feature to our home or property.


First Impressions 

We all realise that when we pull up to any property, business or home the first thing we see and notice is the frontage and the drive up to the property. A dressed up driveway will make your customers, friends or relatives think wow this looks amazing. So no matter if its just your friends you wish to impress or give yourself the satisfaction of feeling proud of what your home looks like from the outside.

 When it comes to either selling your property, it as been said that 80-90% of people make up their mind if they want to buy the property or not in the first time they see it and a superb looking driveway will get them hooked even before they walk through the door. If your a business well this will in turn let the potential customer know you are a proud business owner and take your work/ business very seriously, making them feel more relaxed to do business with you as this will make you look even more professional. Appearance is everything.


A tired broken down driveway will often lean to the impression the inside is exactly the same, An elegant driveway, patio or garden area will always set the standards of what to expect from the inside.


Add Value To The Property 

Following on from our first point above, many people people will choose to update or reinvent  their driveway or garden area before the put their property up for sale. The reason for this is that potential buyers might be put off if they drive up and see and old, tired, broken down driveway or frontage to your home or property. A lot of buyer wants a house or property that they can just move straight into with nothing to do. A superb driveway will make this more attractive and a pleasant experience for the new potential buyer and making its more likely to sell faster at the price you want. A typical study as found that a driveway can add anything up to 10% in property value.


Functionality And Parking 

A great driveway wont only make your property stand out and look fantastic it will also be functional. The area should be safe to walk, play and drive on. Most drive fit on average of 2-3 vehicles on at any one time so your drive needs to be robust and resilient and fit for purpose.


A Bit Of Friendly Neighbourly Competition  

This has never been more relevant in this day and age, as they say its all about keeping up appearances. we all know that we love a little bit of friendly competition with our neighbours, whether its a new car on the drive, that second holiday or the new conservatory we are having built. A new driveway and an eye catching driveway should be one of those things, a perfect bespoke resin bound driveway will do just that.


Low Maintenance Driveway 

As a home and property owner myself i'm always just that bit to busy to go out and clean my driveway, with work and family life taking priority's, the last thing i think about is going out and doing more work maintaining my driveway. With  a Resin Bound Driveway this takes away 95% of keeping the driveway clean and weeding, re-sanding, sealing and all the other things that come along with driveways. A Resin Bound Driveway gives you just that a very low maintenance driveway. 



Legally new driveways should comply with legislation, such as SUDS - Schedule 3 of the flood and water management act 2012, this is relating to the requirement of sustainable drainage, this came into force on October 1st 2012. This is for flood prevention and management and a unique selling point over other properties that don't have a SUDS compliant driveway.

A great example is that the Resin Bound Material is designed to be permeable so that in this country as we know is a lot of the time wet, cold, windy and frosty, the permeable structure of the Resin Bound allows water to free flow through it and find its own way to the water table, this in turn will reduce the effects of puddles, surface water and ice, preventing and reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls. Eco paving is the way forward when it comes to your new Driveway, Patio and path way.


The feel great factor 

Having a brand new tailor made resin driveway will make you feel so proud and will make your property look the best it could look and be very pleasing on the eye.


Taking all the above into account 

So now we have diluted the above sections, it seams like the only viable option for a drive way is Resin Bound. As all the boxes have been ticked and your mind as been put to rest, its a sure thing that a Resin Bound Material should be used for your new driveway, patio or pathway.
