Nottingham & Mansfield local resin bonded stone surfacing works
What a busy week. Just managed to complete two small nice local resin bonded stone surfacing jobs.
One of these being in Bakersfield Nottingham.
This enquiry originally came to us in August of 2012 when we quoted. This client wanted a couple of local resin bonded stone surfacing jobs which were were able to do. This allowed this client to see the resin bonded stone surfacing first hand.
Their project was not taken up at that time however, as the client wanted to go ahead in the future we held the price for this customer. Not always possible but on smaller areas the cost implications are a little more realistic to hold.
This particular Bakersfield one was for a concrete pathway covering . The clients path ran along side a hedge, which was due to be cut down by the neighbour. However that did not materialise and in order to offer an anti slip surfacing option before winter sets in he decided to go ahead now
Mansfield job order taken this week, so keeping busy so will be adding a local resin bonded stone surfacing from Mansfield to our portfolio.
Resin is becoming quite a popular product at present ( we have recently been enlisted to offer to price for a local resin bonded stone surfacing product for an East Midlands university)
We have also been called out to a tarmac driveway quote in Cotgrave. This had been down 25 years and was in need of a drainage channel. Moss being a bit of in issue with this one as well tarmac having issues as it wears with weeds and cracks. The client currently has a slabbed section and wants us to quote for a concrete curved area, which then could be incorporated in the resin bonded resurfacing. (shooter and handcock)
Also called out for a tarmac surface to be installed. We have quoted for this but this would need excavation of the existing tarmac and concrete. The reason this client had a problem was that the driveway had recently been damaged by a builder. The builder had completed extension works for this client and unfortunately it had affected the driveway.
When we receive enquiries it is often possible to provide a ball park figure to enable our clients to have an estimate for potential. This is where google earth can be an advantage (or disadvantage in some cases). This is when we were asked to provide details of previous jobs – local resin bonded stone surfacing jobs – we had completed in the local area. So armed with our google facility, we proceeded to check
- 1st the proximity and
- 2nd the longevity of our installations
we can install a drive but we do not maintain so it can be a bit hit and miss as to the suitability of using an older local resin bonded stone surfacing referral.
What confused us with this search however was that we had completed two drives near each other. One reflected our work the other didn’t? Why? had it been removed or had it not stood the test of time? Neither. One of the jobs was completed pre google the other post google!
Fortunately this has not had a detrimental effect.
