One of the most popular materials used in the construction of a driveway is resin. Resin driveways are hugely popular because not only are they cost-effective and durable, but they are also available in a wide range of colors/designs and are very easy to maintain. To get the very best out of your resin driveway, it is very important that you let a professional with adequate experience handle its installation. So, to avoid a stressful installation process, below are some of the qualities (including questions to ask) you should be on the lookout for in order to choose the right resin driveway company.

Have a clear idea of what you are looking for

Before you begin your search, it is important to have a pretty good idea of what you are looking for. This way, you can give a clear description of your idea to the company without any pressure of settling for something entirely different from what you want.

Research and shortlist your options

Conduct an extensive search of reputable resin driveway companies around you and make a shortlist of the top companies. You can also read online reviews or get recommendations from friends, neighbors, or colleagues about reliable companies. Once you have a shortlist of top companies, there are certain questions you should also ask each of them to help narrow down your search further. Some of these questions are:

What kind of preparation/base is required?

With professional resin driveway installations, the surface to which the resin mixture will be applied has to be dry and free from any dust or loose materials. Also, all the areas adjacent to the installation site have to be properly protected to avoid resin contamination. In addition to ensuring adequate surface preparation, the company also has to be clear on what type of surface the resin can be laid over ( either new or existing surfaces).

How much does it cost?

The cost of a resin driveway installation usually depends on factors like depth, type of aggregate used, and the size of the area. Get quotes from at least three of the companies on your shortlist and compare. Prices for say, a light grey resin driveway will vary from company to company.  Remember to factor in the same set of specifications for each company before comparing the prices

Is there a guarantee?

A well-established and reputable company will offer you some guarantee against issues like cracking, UV degradation, discoloration, workmanship, loose stone, and frost/moisture damage.

Do they offer samples/references?

Most companies that are confident in their work will be willing to provide you with references from their old/existing customers (some might even make arrangements for you to view some of their installations in person). Alternatively, you can check their websites for samples or contact them to send you samples if you are having a hard time finding what you are looking for.

Do they offer technical advice? 

The resin driveway company you go for should be one that has free advice readily available on technical features such as; specification sheets, permeability, slip resistance, suitable bases, blends, and depths.

Do they offer post-installation support/maintenance guides?

A good resin driveway company is one with good customer service, part of which includes providing maintenance guides and technical support even after installation is complete.

Do they offer other services?

A company that dabbles in too many other services may likely not have the adequate knowledge necessary for the proper installation of something as technical as resin driveways. It is recommended that you go for companies whose main focus is on resin driveway installations.


There are several resin driveway companies out there, and it is important to be cautious in making your choice. Ensure that you go for a company that can boast of adequate experience on resin driveway installations.


Getting a driveway for your home is a significant investment, so you want to make sure you get it right. Do your homework and only go for a company that adequately meets all of your needs.
