WHY CHOOSE A RESIN BOUND DRIVEWAY, PATIO, OR PATH OVER AN ALTERNATIVE METHOD?
With a solid and reputable background in civil engineering, we have fine tuned our skills and produced the perfect mix of resin ingredients, for quality, robustnuss and peace of mind.
Over the past 12 years, our goal has simply been to be the industry leaders.
Blocked paving has become very popular over recent years. The price of block paving has reduced due to mass production, but it is important to remember that block paving is just pigmented blocks of concrete and will fade and loose its original appearance over a short period of time.
Blocked Paving requires maintenance and can be prone to moss and weeds forming in the joints
No resistance from staining
Constant weed & moss growth
Prone to settlement and displacement
A good alternative when needing to keep costs down. Will often settle and shift moving more of the gravel away from the area it is intended for. Loose gravel requires regular weeding and will lose the initial appearance very quickly due to movement from vehicles and walking.
- Weed growth
- Ongoing cost for replacing displaced gravel
- Short term visual impact
Printed Concrete – becoming very popular and common in appearance printed concrete can be used to simulate many different finishing techniques from stones, cobbles or brick. It can be very dangerous when wet and due to freeze/thaw situations. It can cause cracking and will incur additional maintenance costs.
- Very slippery when wet
- Surface cracks
- Weather damage in winter
Concrete – A low maintenance option with many years of useable life. A porous material so it is susceptible to winter weather conditions and also diesel/anti freeze spillage which causes further ongoing damage and cracking over the longer term.
- Slippery when wet/freezing
- Common to staining
- Industrial appearance
TAR & CHIP
Tarmac – Offering a very industrial appearance tarmac has been used for years to surface our highways and roads. Due to modern manufacturing processes tarmac no longer wears and weathers as well with cold winter weather conditions causing cracks and ultimately pot holes. Due to the wearing process it is not possible to patch tarmac surfaces without obvious colour difference from weathered grey to new black.
- Short functional life span
- Patchy looking repairs
- Suffers winter weather extremes
