Resurfacing concrete driveways with Resin Bonded Gravel in Nottingham
Resin Bonded Gravel required providing an anti slip, durable, protective and uniform surface.
Where – Sandiacre Nottingham
When – February 2013
Our client approached us last year . As he was completing the re-designing of his front garden, extending his concrete driveway and creating a new doorstep he wanted to finish with a surface that would incorporate all the different surfaces and make it look uniform. His driveway had a standard manhole cover which was damaged. Our client intended to replace this manhole cover with a recessed tray. The intention being to infill with concrete and then we could incorporate in the Resin Bonded Gravel resurfacing which we were completing.
Drainage – not an issue as correct back fall already in existence and one of the benefits of our system is that it is using an existing surface and existing drainage systems are not affected.
Preparation – filling of cracks to the concrete sections and the block paving where necessary with our waterbased specialist filler.
Finish – Because of the size of the driveway the Resin Bonded Gravel finish in a natural colour would serve best as this would visually increase the area of the driveway. It is always down to choice with the colours for Resin Bonded Gravel but with our 12 years experience we can help guide our clients with the best option for them their gardens and driveway.
Size of area – under 50sqm
Access – small cul de sac no traffic issues
