Cost of resin bound patio

What is the cost of a resin bound patio? Installation costs explained

Resin bound surfacing is an attractive option for everything from pathways to roadways, driveways and, of course, patios. And we don’t just mean it’s attractive to look at: resin bound surfaces offer a whole host of practical benefits too, including exceptional longevity and durability, permeability and ease of maintenance.

More on that later, but first: how much is it going to cost you? Let’s take a closer look.

The cost of resin bound installations

Firstly, it’s important to clarify that no two patio installations are the same. The exact cost will depend on a wide variety of factors, including your location, the type of resin bound surface you choose, the condition and style of the existing surface, the installation company you choose and more.

According to Checkatrade, the average installation cost for a resin bound surface is around £110 per m². That’s just for the surface itself though, and assumes you have an appropriate sub-base that the resin bound material can be applied to.

If you don’t, and a new sub-base needs to be installed, this will raise the per-m² cost by around £70.

How does this compare to other materials – and is resin bound worth it?

Looking at the installation cost of the surface itself, resin bound is on the pricier end of the spectrum. Cheaper paving slabs can be installed for as little as £65 per m², which is similar in price to brick or concrete. Flagstone patios can be significantly more expensive than resin bound though, with costs often exceeding £250 per m².

So, is resin bound worth it? In our opinion, absolutely. Not only is it attractive to look at, it will last for longer than practically any other material – all while requiring minimal maintenance.

Yes, you will pay a little more for the initial installation, but the benefits of resin bound surfaces more than justify the additional cost. If you’d like to get a free, no obligation resin bound patio installation quote, get in touch with us today.
