About Resin Bound Paving
What Is Resin Bound
Resin Bound paving has grown considerably in recent years due to the more extreme weather we have been experiencing. This paving can last over 25 years when installed correctly by ourselves and maintained correctly. It also comes with a 10 Year Guarantee to cover against loose stones, cracking, sinking, faulty materials, frost damage and workmanship.
Resin Bound is a surfacing solution that results from mixing resin and aggregates together in a forced action mixer. This creates a mixture that can be trowelled onto a surface to provide a smooth, flat finish.
A Resin Bound system is also known as ‘stone carpet’. Its seamless finish provides a decorative bound gravel surface that is attractive, durable, and practical.
Because of the way it is mixed, allowing for small gaps between aggregates, a Resin Bound system is permeable. This means it is also a SUDS compliant solution which means planning permission isn't required as long as a suitable porous subbase is used.
The Resin Bound system can be overlaid to existing or new concrete or tarmac to create beautiful resin driveways, pathways, car parks or any light traffic surfaces.
