Keyworth driveway is  Resin Bonded Gravel an option ?

Following on from the recent details with the quote request by a Keyworth resident and his tarmac driveway and additional areas.

One of the difficulties we have in the driveway industry is that tarmac and its installers  have a bit of a bad reputation.

However, like with all driveway works and products, you have to be able to prove your own worth.

We at Drive-Cote Ltd pride ourselves on our integrity and honesty.  And as a result of this we were not in a position to offer a price to this client.  One of the reasons being we cannot resurface a surface that is not structurally sound. This Keyworth driveway was not a suitable candidate for our Resin Bonded Gravel.

In order to resurface with Resin Bonded Gravel we need to rely on the existing surface and this tarmac is not a viable option.

We could advocate removing all the existing (but then that would defeat one of the main benefits of using Resin Bonded Gravel) together with our

  • Completed in a day
  • No mess
  • No disruption.

Resin Bound Gravel is an option some of the driveway companies use but we do not when it comes to a driveway.

  • Resin Bonded Gravel is not porous and uses existing surfaces to provide a tensile surface suitable for vehicles.
  • Block paving uses dense blocks that spread the load of a vehicle by moving independently and provide an interlock system which make it suitable for vehicle weight.
  • Resin Bound Gravel is porous and because of this is less tensile than concrete or tarmac and as a result of this we do not install for vehicle use.  Foot traffic is more ideal.

So unfortunately our Resin Bonded Gravel is not an option for this Keyworth resident.  One shoe does not fit all .We did point out a couple of things to him to be aware of with regards to any works he does have completed which ever route he goes down.

Weed free and minimal maintenance are quite important considerations as on large areas they can be a time consuming aspect.
