Lets talk about Resin
Harrogatescapes offer a wide range of Resin Bound Surfacing Systems which provides a smooth, hard wearing and low maintenance porous/semi porous surface using a range of natural and recycled aggregates.
Resin bound can be laid straight onto an existing surface, i.e. over original block paving or concrete there can be additional costs if a concrete or tarmac base is required to be laid first. It works out as a far more cost effective option than traditional methods when compared to block paving etc.
Aggregate is pre mixed with a non yellowing clear resin before it is applied. The mixed material is then applied by hand using a trowel. The thickness can be adjusted to suit a wide range of site conditions and service requirements. When installed on a strong sub base the resin bound system can be as little as 12mm thick. Landscapes Team now have the ability to install on compacted base at only 30mm to provide sufficient mechanical strength for use by vehicular traffic.
Because it is trowel applied, the system is relatively smooth. This technique is sometimes referred to as "Hand trowelled". Using natural aggregates bound with non yellowing aliphatic resin we can produce a durable, very high quality, low maintenance surface for use in almost any type of driveway, patio or path project. Bound Aggregate can be installed onto compacted sub base and the porous type makes an excellent surfacing for tree planters. In recognition of the need to more effectively manage surface water run-off, the Environment Agency introduced a Sustainable Urban Drainage approach (SUDS), to water management.
Bonded Aggregate describes the technique of bonding aggregate to an existing surface. Adhesive is spread on the surface. Whilst it is still liquid a layer of aggregate is spread over it. When the adhesive has set, any excess aggregate is swept off to leave a layer of aggregate BONDED to the surface. We sometimes describe the effect as producing a "stuck down gravel path. "This system is typically 4mm to 6mm thick and is textured. The technique is sometimes referred to as "Scatter Coating" or "Coat and Scatter". Bonded Aggregate is a durable, low maintenance surface ideal for use in almost any type of landscaping project.
Resin bonded driveways are made up of dried aggregates and resin; the process involves laying the resin onto the area you require it such as a driveway and then scattering the dried aggregate on top of the resin. It can be easily laid on top of existing concrete or tarmac.
- Clean Finish – Due to the bonding process the stones are sealed, meaning there are no loose ones
- Multiple Uses – Can be used for a range of purposes such as driveways, paths or ramps
- Easy To Maintain – They can be maintained easily and with little hassle
- Hard Wearing – Can withstand pressures and are built to last
- Decorative – Available in a range of colours, and can be shaped and laid in decorative patterns
The advantages of using Resin
Nowadays resin bound aggregates are the choice of architects. Domestic households choose resin bound driveways over other paving options because they can be overlaid onto existing concrete or tarmac, saving money, as there are no excavation costs in most cases.
Resin bounded aggregates have very good anti-skid properties and are ideal for the householder who likes the appearance of a natural aggregate driveway, but does not want loose stones in their homes. Aggregates are available in a wide choice of colours and textures. The advantages of resin stone aggregate flooring is that it's a surfacing that requires low maintenance, is durable, SUDS compliant and porous / permeable, seamless smooth finish and decorative allowing you to create imaginative and exciting environments. As an alternative to resin-bound gravel. A resin-bound gravel tree pit system is perfect as it's both permeable and joint free meaning that whilst water can drain through allowing the tree to soak up nutrients, it prevents weeds and other unwanted vegetation to protrude through its attractive surface. Suppliers and contractors specify a deeper depth on tree pits from the initial 16mm depth (3-6mm aggregate size) specification and recommend a 50mm depth finished system (6-10mm aggregate size).
A soft power cleanse is enough to prevent the development of weed growth keeping it closest to the original design. Warm water may be used along with a soap to clean the aggregates ground, but boiling hot water really should not utilized as this will cause harm. Snow and ice can be taken off the resin-bound surface area using a gentle bristled brush or possibly a rubberized remover in order to eliminate the surfacing getting broken.
We have installed a variety of quality monoblock and natural stone driveways, resin bonded stone driveways, patios, paths and walls to many extremely satisfied customers.
