Why are there cracks appearing on my Resin Bound Driveway?

Reasons why you would have cracks appearing on your resin driveway:

  • Issues with the sub base

  • Existing cracks within the sub base

  • Drainage issues

  • Movement within the sub base

  • Movement from roots

  • Joins within the sub base

When cracks appear in resin bound driveways, it's usually due to issues with the sub base. Resin bound surfaces can withstand some movement, but they still need a solid crack free sub base.

Any cracks in the sub-base can lead to stress points in the resin bound surface, facilitating the formation of new cracks that align with the sub-base cracks.

A similar issue can occur at the joints when a new base meets an existing one without using a crack reduction membrane. This is a common challenge when a homeowner is extending the size of their driveway. It is referred to as "joint reflective cracking."

If you notice a crack appearing in your resin bound driveway, patio, or path, you should take action straight away. Cracks not only pose a potential trip hazard, but leaving them unattended can result in a more difficult and costly repair.
