FAQs

Q. What is the difference between resin-bonded and resin bound?

A. - A resin bonded system is generally applied over existing concrete or tarmac surfaces and the aggregate/gravel is sprinkled evenly over a resin application and 'bonded' to the surface. The resin bound system is trowelled on to the surface and the environmental benefits of this include the fact that this system is SUD's compliant.

Q. What time of year is best to install a new driveway?

A. - Depending on the size of the area and in the case of most household driveways or patio areas the application can be completed within a day ensuring you are not inconvienienced for a long period of time.


Q. When will I be able to drive on my new driveway?

A. - Depending on the system selected and recommended for your project the time in which the area can be used may vary from a few hours up to around 24 hours. None of the systems require a long-period of time where your driveway or patio will be out of use.


Q. How long should my driveway last?

A. - Depending on the system chosen Prestige will inform you of the life expectancy of your driveway. The systems are highly durable and applied in commercial projects too so the lifeline is in excess of 10 years.


Q. How can I clean my driveway?

A. - Maintaining your driveway could not be easier. You simply need to sweep the area occasionally using a brush, on an annual basis you can also use water in order to bring up the finish as good as new. Unlike block paving you will have no need to weed as there are no cracks involved so gone are the days of tireless and regular weeding!
