 stone resin driveway considerations

  Stone resin driveway considerations are varied.  They should be made before any works are completed.

Cost and suitability of surface.  Aggregate and resin choice.  Drainage and installer experience.  Additionally reliability.  The size of the aggregate furthermore can improve an install. Just some of the stone resin driveway considerations.

Cost – is it per sqm?

Does it include removing any waste?  Similarly materials?

Suitability of surface – do you have concrete? Can it be installed on tarmac?  Is the surface structurally sound?

Aggregate and resin choice – does the size of the aggregate have a bearing on the install?

Bauxite? Natural? Coloured?

Drainage is that a necessary? 

What are  the choices? Does it have to be a standard drainage system? What about permeability?

What about a sloping surface?

All these questions make stone resin driveway considerations important. A necessary first step before taking on any works.

You can enhance or extend the life of existing surfaces.  Hence one of the important benefits of a resin bonded stone finish. Which is its ability to protect.  Only if applied correctly. 

Masking areas is  part of the preparation work.  Or it should be.   But also make sure manholes and edges are protected. Health and Safety for that reason must also be a consideration. Furthermore marking of hazard areas is a must.

Speed of installation is key.  But will vary according to the time of year.  Resin is very sensitive product.  Timing is key. From the time the resin is agitated through to the time it is installed. Also as a result the weather needs to be a consideration.

What is one of the key benefits  resin bonded stone installations?  The anti slip surfacing.  Therefore slippy slopes and slippy surfaces can be eliminated.  Also with the installation of resin on a sloped area comes the complexity.   Managing the resin can be an issue.  Consequently timing is key.
