- What base do I require to lay resin bound paving?
Basically any sound substrate like asphalt tarmacadam, concrete, sand cement screeds, timber decking, steel decking, damaged tarmac or concrete substrates can be repaired and made good and then the Surebond resin bound paving can be applied to hide all defects and scarring just as long as overall the substrate is sound.
- Can it be laid across multi surfaces?
As long as the surfaces are relatively sound you could lay across a drive made up of say block paving, tarmacadam and concrete and technically make a new seamless overlay since the product has great flexibility against expansion and contraction of differing surfaces.
- Say I have not got a tarmac or concrete surface what are my options?
We could give you a specification for a build up of tarmacadam or concrete, to which you would then say lay a 18mm- 20mm resin bound finish or you could lay a well compacted MOT type stone base and then lay the resin bound paving directly onto this surface. But then you would need to lay the Surebond paving in 50-60 mm thickness.
- Do I need to prime the surface?
There is no need to prime tarmacadam although concrete, timber and steel decking should be applied with Surebond surface conditioner to ensure 100% adhesion.
Our teams of trained resin bonded or bound paving installers are fully trained to provide swift and correct installation, but anyone with a reasonable degree of trowel ability could install or be trained to install our materials.
- How long will the paving last?
Providing the Surebond paving is maintained and looked after the life will be in excess of 10 years as per tarmac, block paving, printed concrete etc. However just like any surface, if not cleaned regularly or repaired or damaged its life can be reduced purely because there has been lack of maintenance or care.
Our resin bound paving can incorporate anti slip aggregates to effectively reduce slip accidents and this can be customised to the clients' requirement.
Yes because each particle of stone is enveloped in UV stable polyurethane resin and this makes the stone oil resistant.
- Can it be cleaned easily?
Yes general sweeping and low pressure power washers and detergents can be used effectively together with fungicidal washing once per year to stop moss growth in shaded damp areas as per any paving such as block paving and concrete slabs etc.
- If I damaged the surface or had to dig up to lay a service is it easily repaired?
This paving system is easily repaired if cut out carefully and a new section is laid up to neat straight cut out sections. The new material will soon weather into the originally laid material.
Yes we guarantee all applications for 10 years and the life expectancy is well and far beyond that period comparable with other paving materials such as printed concrete, block paving and tarmac surfaces.
