Hi, I stumbled upon your website after reading about you in an online forum “outandabout live”. The pseudonym of the very helpful person was “faithcaine” who may be an owner. I have a forty year old concrete drive which although cracked in places is very solid. These have probably been there since the 1980’s as I have seen little change since then. Would this be suitable for resin-bonded? Photo attached.
Unfortunately I think I may be way too far out of your area (Essex) for you to be able to help me. I do wonder if perhaps you know the names of any reliable installers in the S.E. though if that is the case. Kind regards, Dave
Thank you for your email. Guilty as charged! that was me on “outandabout live”!
Simon has looked at your images and based on an assumption that the levels are not too differing on the different sections, with good prep works the resin bonded stone should be able to be resurfaced. As with all works its about a site visit and good prep work.

You are correct we are too far to be able to complete the works. However there are 2 National companies who have installers in different areas. Just remember and be aware a lot of companies favour the bound (requiring the existing surface to be removed). However with resin bonded this is designed to resurface existing surfaces.
Addagrip seem to work more with resin bonded so I would start with them first. Also if you look local – shopping centres and walk ways – you will probably find works completed – contact the council and see if they can tell you who installed the surface and whilst they may be commercial and bound- they may well be able to recommend a local installer.

Well thank you so much for the helpful advice especially as you are not in my area. All I can say is good luck with your business and I am sure you will continue to do well with your excellent attitude to customers and people in general as well judging by your comments on that forum. Kind Regards Dave
