Resin Bonded

Resin bonded stone paving specifications are becoming increasingly popular in the UK for many domestic projects such as driveways and paths, as well as commercial uses like car parks and access roads.

This scatter system surface is available in various colours and designs.

We can provide a range of resin bonded services to install and maintain these natural stone paving surfaces to ensure you have the best decorative outdoor flooring. This type of outdoor flooring is great for pathways and domestic driveways, particularly if these are on a sloping surface as the added grip provides slip resistance.

Resin Bonded Specs

The resin bonded gravel specification is designed to give the appearance of loose stones but without the heavy maintenance and loss of particles over time. One of the services we complete is the application of this surface type which is done using a scatter system.

We’ll apply a layer of specialist resin to the existing surface which should be either macadam or concrete. Then the loose stone natural aggregate will be scattered across the ground where it will stick to the glue. Once cured, the end result will be a decorative stone surface with the look of look gravel. However, it will have a much more durable and low maintenance finish.

Feel free to get in touch with our team today if you have any questions about designs and prices for this gravel flooring type. We’d be happy to provide you with a quote along with all the information you need. This includes all the details regarding specifications and colour choices.

We can tailor the designs to suit each individual client and project. So don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any specific requirements.

What is a Resin Bonded Surface?

A number of people wish to have resin bonded surfacing installed at their homes and commercial establishments. Bonded gravel is a non-porous, scatter system which takes on the appearance of natural stone. This surface is a decorative surfacing type which is available in a number of colours. Since the stones are a scatter system it helps with the grip; this makes the surface perfect for areas on slopes or steep hills.

Very little maintenance is needed for bonded gravel since the gravel is glued together. This means you will not have to keep filling up the area with more and more gravel over time. We recommend you carry out regular cleaning to keep the surface looking nice and to prevent the growth of moss and algae.

Our team will be more than happy to offer you more information on surface installation and maintenance. Please do not hesitate to contact us through the form on this page.
