The Process

A typical tarmac driveway, the top wearing course is starting to break up and moss has started to grow further weakening the surface.

The customer chose to frame the driveway with brick pavers to the front and sides these are are layed on a concrete footing to ensure they are securely held in position.

The drive was also altered by the tree making it wider to make parking easier.

Before the resin surface can be applied, the driveway was power washed to remove the moss and dirt.

The three colours of stone are measured out at the mixing area.

The resin and stone are mixed together in a forced action mixer

The mixed resin and stone are poured out across the surface.

The area is floated using trowels to produce a smooth finish, the depth being approximately 15-18mm.

Dips and varying contours can be taken into account.

The process of mixing and floating the surface is continued until the drive way is finished.

Approximately 10-20 square metres are covered per hour.

A non- slip surface is added to the finish as the process goes along to increase grip.

Drying time is from 4 – 6 hours depending on the time of year the installation takes place

The finished driveway.

Cars can be driven on to the surface 24 hours after completion.
