Resin Gravel Surfacing: What You Need to Know

Lewis | February 12, 2015 | 2 Comments

Have you been thinking about getting your driveway surfaced, or maybe even your patio, garden path or courtyard? If so (and you surely have!), we strongly recommend resin gravel surfacing. This method of surfacing is very practical; whether you opt for resin bound gravel or resin bonded gravel, you won’t experience loose chipping that you would with a normal gravel driveway. Not only this, they are much easier to maintain, as it drains through the semi-porous surface, it’s colour doesn’t fade and is UV light-stable, and is extremely resistant to most chemicals.

Another advantage of resin gravel surfacing is that it can come in a wide range of colours, using natural gravel aggregates, such as flint and granite, providing a natural beauty without the loose material. So in a nutshell, they are functional, durable, and let’s fact it, they look great! However, this isn’t just one of those product-based blog posts that is only going to focus on the advantages of this method; here at Oakleigh Manor we are a non-biased, honest company.

The main disadvantage of resin gravel surfacing lays with the possibility that if it is installed with poor workmanship or a poor sub-base, it can leave a patchy surface, or fail to achieve a proper bond, which will ultimately mean it will delaminate. However, this is never something you should be concerned with from Oakleigh Manor; our in-house team are trained and vastly experienced. Furthermore, to ensure the high standard quality of each and every surface we install, we never sub-contract, and we even offer an incredible 15 year guarantee on our resin bound gravel and our resin bonded gravel surfaces!
