Resin Bound Surfacing
Resin bound surfacing is an alternative flooring option to macadam, stone, grass and other surfaces. It is commonly installed in people’s driveways but it’s becoming popular for commercial uses and parks. It offers a decorative finish which is also permeable to help with water drainage.

Resin Bound Paving Surface
The resin-bound system is mixed on site and then applied to the surface using a transparent resin binder which coats the stones before they are poured onto the ground. We mix the resin and the stone together completely before pouring them out. This ensures that the stones are thoroughly coated and this makes a bound surface.
Resin bound surfacing is great because it requires low maintenance. It just needs brushing or power washing twice per year, this is to remove the contamination of moss and algae.
The stone paving is available in a range of colours, this allows you to make your surface unique and how you want it to look. Costs for this type of project will vary depending on size, location and your chosen design, be sure to fill in our contact form if you’d like further details on what we can offer.
A resin bound paving surface is made up of variety of natural stone aggregates, marble, glass and other recycled materials can all go into the flooring specification. Resin-bound flooring is installed in people’s homes, it can be poured onto their driveways, garden paths, patios and hot tub surroundings. There are also loads of other places we can install it for both domestic and commercial locations.
When we commercially install resin-bound surfaces, the most popular places are access roads, car parks and external pathways but we have also installed it onto interior flooring and tree pits.
The clear advantage of having resin bound surfacing is that you have the option to make it customised, unique and eye-catching and completely design it yourself. It can enhance your area by having either natural stone or a bright colourful pattern, there are so many choices.
It’s good because there is the option for you to add your own type of design and pattern if you don’t want the ones which we have installed before and we can help you design them if you want us to. If you’re thinking about having a resin bound paving surface, we think it is a good idea as it means you can get away from the typical macadam surfaces, which you see all the time and you may have a smooth, hard wearing and visually pleasing surface which will last a long time.

Resin Bound Surface Costs
If you want to know about the resin bound surface costs, our team are able to help you. There are many factors which can cause the prices to alter. One of the biggest factors which will affect the price of this surfacing type is the size of the area. Obviously a bigger area will cost more to lay the resin stone when compared to a smaller area. Although a smaller area will be cheaper overall to install the resin-bound gravel, the price per metre squared will not be as cheap as if you were to cover a larger area due to the economies of scale.
Another factor which can alter the costs is the existing surface that is down. If a lot of preparation work is necessary before the installation of resin bound surfacing, the cost of the project may be more expensive. Although we can carry out preparation works ourselves, you may find it cheaper to get a local contractor to carry out the groundworks to create a sub base which meets up with our requirements.

Resin Stone Surfacing
There are a number of advantages to resin stone surfacing including the permeable properties and the minimal upkeep needed. Although it does not need a lot of maintenance, frequent care is recommended. You should do this to keep the surface in top condition and looking brand new. By having an upkeep approach you may boost the lifespan of the surface instantaneously. It will also leave it looking attractive and keep it safe to use.
We always suggest performing resin-bound maintenance to prevent problems as opposed to once the problems have occurred, this may reduce the possibility of your surface becoming harmful. Brushing your floor regularly is important to ensure that leaves, weeds and dirt do not remain on the resin-bound paving surface.
Any debris that gets sticks to the surface affects the porosity making it no longer SUDS certified. If weeds do show up on your surface area, you can use a weed killer. But it is essential that you will not use something oil based as it might cause problems for the surface.
You can usually prevent moss and algae progression using a light-weight power clean. You can apply warm water with a cleansing soap to maintain the resin-bound gravel ground. However boiling water really should not be used as this tends to damage the flooring. To take off compacted snow or ice from your resin-bound stone paving area, we highly recommend working with a rubberised remover. You could also use a mild bristled sweep to minimise any problems with the gravel.
We can install the design of resin stone surfacing for just about any section size or shape. This is simply because our team mix the gravel and binder on location. We will lay the pattern onto a hard surface or strong permeable sub-base. This helps it continue being strong and tough whilst demanding small repairs and maintenance.
There are obviously other alternatives to this specification for driveways and other areas. Check out our post on resin bound gravel vs block paving to find out more about the differences.
