Resin driveways

We only use UV resin to prevent fading so your driveway will look as good as new in years to come. All our technicians are trained by Derbyshire Aggregates , Europes largest distributor. We only use Derbyshire Aggregates materials for their quality and range giving our customers the best finish.

J1 Exteriors offer a range of services to keep your property well maintained. This includes the construction of resin driveways which are low maintenance and available in a range of finishes. 

J1 Exteriors offer a popular alternative to the more traditional driveways constructed of tarmac or block paving, using resin-bonded or resin-bound aggregates to produce a finish that is both decorative and aesthetically pleasing. Available in a wide range of colours, resin driveways can be created to a customer’s exacting requirements to blend in with the surrounding area, making it the perfect choice for footpaths and patios too.


Both applications are UV resistant, so will not fade or discolour over time, as well as being resistant to petrol and oil spills. Resin can be used to create patterns by blending colours, also making it an ideal application for commercial projects such as car parks, playgrounds and bus lanes.

Resin Bonded Driveways

This involves applying resin over a suitable base and then scattering dried aggregate over it to give the appearance of a loose gravel finish. 

Benefits include:

  • Decorative
  • Hard wearing and long lasting
  • Low maintenance
  • Textured finish
  • Available in many colours and size
  • Cost effective
  • Anti-skid and non-slip surfaces

Resin Bound Driveways

This application involves pre-mixing resin and aggregates to give a smooth finish, that is permeable to allow natural water drainage.

Benefits include:

  • Smooth finish
  • Longer lasting than bonded resin
  • Porous to reduce the risk of flooding
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) compliant 
  • Eco friendly
  • Hand trowelled and consistent
  • Available in many colours and sizes
  • Anti-skid and non-slip surfaces
