At Drive-Cote Ltd our process of resurfacing concrete, tarmac and imprinted concrete provides a hand laid resin bonded aggregate installation.   Our primary installs are for residential driveways paths and patios meaning those awkward to reach spots and  awkward access areas are easily dealt with.

Recently we have been requested to quote on an area of concrete for a rear patio.  The unusual thing about this job is the fact that the hand laid resin bonded aggregate quote was for a dual purpose – as the surface was also a roof for a basement.

The client wanted a solution which would seal the concrete patio area.  Our resin bonded stone would have been perfect as being a non porous surface it would have prevented the ingress of water.  At the same time this surface would provide an anti slip and protective coating for the patio area.   However unfortunately for this customer even though our hand laid resin bonded aggregate would have been ideal, they had recently suffered a flooding of the area which had caused major damage. 

They were a little too late with our quote, as had the resin bonded surface been in place it would have prevented this flooding through to the basement.

The client has been considering our install as it would have saved them a considerable amount of money and disturbance.  They would have been able to leave the concrete slab in place allowing it to be used as a base for the resin.

In the past we have covered a local terrace for a customer and some 10 years on this is still as good as new.
