Shirland resin bonded covering
We have had an enquiry from an interested client this week looking for a Shirland resin bonded covering. Unfortunately there was no actual surface in place. We called round whilst in the Alfreton area at the request of the caller and we were able to email as follows
“Thanks for the email and phone calls. Simon did call round whilst in the Alfreton area to have a quick look. Unfortunately the area is not suitable as a Shirland resin bonded covering. It would require excavation and removal of the waste. A compacted hardcore base would need to be installed, new levels established together with drainage considerations. Then it could be infilled with a surface of choice i.e block paving, concrete or tarmac”.
We went on to explain
“If you wanted an example of an approximate cost for tarmac for the area you had wanted for the Shirland resin bonded covering, you would be looking at approximately £2665. If you wish to have our subcontractors details then we can provide this for you”.
As we have said before not all surfaces are suitable and we try to be fair and honest. We then received an email back
Thanks for this, if I can get the excavation organised with a solid surface, does this mean I would not be able to install fixed bonded resin drive?”
Not everyone wants to pay twice for a surface (once for the base and once for the resin) however not everyone has budget constraints.
We replied as follows
“You could have resin on to any new concrete, imprinted concrete or tarmac, but it would mean you are paying for the tarmac (or concrete) and then an additional price for the resin. We utilise the resin for existing surfaces which means the cost is less. Do you want me to get Simon to give me a price on the resin so you have a total price ?”.
Simon then priced for the resin install at around £1845.00 to cover the tarmac so for both surfaces he would be looking £4510 as an approximate total cost.
