Resin Bonded Stone Driveways
What is it?
Resin bonded aggregate uses a polyurethane resin to bind an aggregate to a hard surface. The final surface has the appearance of loose aggregate and is extremely durable.
How is it applied?
The resin is mixed with its curing agent using a drill and paddle mixer. The resin mixture is poured across the clean, dry surface and spread out with a serrated trowel or squeegee. The chosen aggregate is scattered into the resin to saturation. When the resin has cured, the excess aggregate is swept off.
How is it used?
Our resin bond system can be used to give an extremely durable aggregate coating to paths, drives, car parks and even roads in macadam, asphalt, and concrete. Resin bond can also be used to coat wood or metal for attractive non-slip finishes to stairs, decking, footbridges and disabled access ramps.
What aggregate can I choose?
Our resin bond systems can be used with most natural aggregates. We make a range of resin colours appropriate to the different colours of aggregate, for instance we sell a buff resin to go under pea gravel and a grey resin to go under grey granite.
Factors affecting choice are colour, hardness, texture. Pathways can use all but the softest aggregates drives will require pea gravels, granites or basalts which are more durable. Steep drives will require an angular aggregate to ensure good grip whilst a drive likely to have children playing around it may require a rounded pea gravel.
All aggregate must be washed dried and bagged. We are pleased to supply these or for larger projects to put you in touch with reputable suppliers.
Resin Bonded Garden Paths And Patios
Garden patios are an excellent way of creating an outdoor area for your property you can enjoy. Our patios are designed to add character and luxury to your garden. Patios can be a great area to entertain guests, enjoy family life, spend time socialising or simply try to get away from it all.
Our experience in patio design and construction includes the use of a range of natural stone finishes and our expert stonemason can construct raised beds and stone clad retention walls to complement the other features within your garden.
Choosing a material for your patio is often only a small part of the decision making process. We will provide you with a competent and reliable service to help design and then install your carefully chosen materials. You can rest assured that we will provide you with the highest standard of work. For more information, please call us on 07971 513766.

We can discuss with you the various options and help you plan your garden path.
