Ravenshead Nottinghamshire resin drive

Completed a Ravenshead Nottinghamshire resin drive job this week.  This client found it necessary to look  for the options available.  His criteria being to  resurface his existing tarmac drive.  Why?

Because it was old and tired-

  • Not really

Because he wanted to extend the surface and make it look uniformDSCN4778

  • Not really.

Because this client had been visited by a less than honest tarmac company (no idea who but we believe not a local installer).  This company had called round to quote and whilst our client was out they had returned.  They had started to excavate his driveway with no prior permission.  The intention being to start works and therefore make it impossible for them not to have a driveway installation.

Fortunately a neighbour realised what was happening and sent them on their way.  On further investigation by the local resident they had found that this had happened on three other properties.

For  this Ravenshead Nottinghamshire resin drive to be completed we needed to complete a couple of things first.

Stage 1

Remove the damaged area of tarmac.  Fortunately the damaged area of tarmac was only about 12sqm in total – re compacting hardcore, laying basecoat and topping.  In addition the client decided to have the driveway width extended by 600mm.   The whole length of the driveway.  This was to enable  better access when getting in and out of their car. (This is one of the benefits of  resin by way of adding areas and then resurfacing all with resin bonded stone so that it looks uniform).  New concrete edges were installed after the area was excavated, hardcore installed and compacted. A basecoat and topping of tarmac laid.  This was then left for 6 weeks to cure to ensure weathering and to make sure  this Ravenshead Nottinghamshire resin drive job is completed correctly.

Stage 2

Thoroughly seal the new tarmac prior to application of our resin bonded stone resurfacing.  Our client chose a light buff finish to visually lift the side elevation.  This side aspect is quite narrow and with a colour finish it would make the area seem narrower.  Being enclosed as well this Ravenshead Nottinghamshire resin drive option would make it a perfect example and use of an anti slip surfacing option.


Some slabs which were originally down the length of the driveway were relaid on the front elevation path.  This was completed to form a double width allowing a much safer and easier entry.

So if you want a weed free anti slip surfacing option for your driveway path or patio then let us resurface with resin bonded stone.  No need to remove the existing surface.
