Our telephone and email advisors will be happy to provide you with estimated costs for your new surface by providing you with an Quick Quote. We provide you with an estimation, or a ‘ballpark figure’, using our own purpose-built resin bound gravel estimation tool, where we will take into account your requirements, such as the size of the surface, the location of your property, your desired resin gravel, the thickness of the surface, any sub-bases that need to be installed and any edgings or rumble strips you desire.

To enable us to accurately quantify your Quick Quote, you will need to provide with the following details:

  1. An approximate size or area to be surfaced,
  2. The type of existing base that the surface will be laid onto (If you need a new base or the project is a new build, we can specify the correct base layers and we can provide a cost to install it to British standards and UK building regulations),
  3. Location of the project. (We work all over the UK & Europe)

Once we have all the information we require, we will process your Quick Quote for your perusal, this can be sent to you in email format or over the telephone.

Formal Resin Gravel Installation Quotation

Once you have received your Quick Quote and you are ready to proceed with the work, one of our Resin Team will need to confirm all the details of your Quick Quote. Once we are happy we have confirmed all the information provided within the process, we will then process a Formal Resin Gravel Installation Quotation for your new surface. We may need to arrange a convenient time to make an Site Evaluation Visit if it is necessary. During the Site Evaluation Visit we will confirm the following:

  1. The estimated size and area is correct,
  2. The existing base (if appropriate) is suitable,
  3. The site logistics and access are not restricted.

Booking your new surface into our Installation Schedule

With every Formal Quotation we send an Acceptance/Booking Form for you to book the works with us. You simply need to return the completed form together with the correct booking deposit. Once we have received your booking, we will book you into our works schedule and contact you with a scheduled commencement of works date. The lead time for us to commence the installation will be shown within your Formal Resin Gravel Installation Quotation.

Decorative and Structural Edgings

Edgings

Your new Resin Gravel surface may require decorative and/or structural Edgings. These ordinarily run around the outside of the new area forming a structural edge for the surface. Despite the fact they are a requirement of resin gravel surfacing, here at Oakleigh Manor we can create and install those that are also decorative in nature. We offer a vast range of edgings for all of our resin gravel surface installations, whether it be for driveways, patios or paths. All of the edgings that we offer are structural edge restraint and have to be laid onto concrete foundations to suit the trafficking requirements. Ask our team for advice on what edging will suit your new surface. Suitable edgings for this application are:

  • Sawn Granite Setts
  • Naturally Cropped Setts
  • Brick Edging
  • Galvanised Steel

Decorative edgings can be formed in either Steel, Granite or other kerb/edge products. These are are laid on a minimal foundation to hold them in place; they can be laid as divisional strips within larger areas to break up the expanse of the surface and add decorative features to your new surface. Structural edgings are also be formed in either Steel, Granite or other kerb/edge products, but a structural edge is laid onto a large/deep concrete foundation, then haunched at 45 degrees with concrete to form a solid edge to your new surface. Our engineers will calculate and specify the correct and suitable foundation for your application. Structural edgings are always required around the outside of any new surface.

Rumble Strips

Rumble strips or entrance strips can be formed in Granite or Natural Sandstone Setts, creating several rows of 100mm wide Setts which commonly have a naturally cropped finish to create a rumble when your vehicle passes the threshold of the area. More commonly for driveway architecture and style, rumble strips have to be laid onto concrete foundations to suit the trafficking requirements. Ask our team for advice on what type of rumble strip will suit your new surface; we will offer impartial and expert advice that is solely based around your requirements.

Edging and Rumble Strip Installation Costs

Our in-house teams of resin gravel installers can include these within your Quick Quote or Formal Quotation a price for a new Edging or Rumble Strip for your new surface. Just tell us the amount of linear metres that go around the edges of your new surface or the width and depth of your rumble strip, we will soon be able to calculate this into your overall new surface installation cost. Click on the pictures on the right hand side, these are some examples of Edging & Rumble Strips that we have installed for our clients.
