Installation – Base Structures
Resin Bound Gravel can be laid over a variety of different base structures:
- Crushed Rock – This is suitable for areas with relatively low foot traffic and no vehicular access
- Asphalt – Resin Bound Gravel can be laid directly onto an existing or newly laid (and cooled) asphalt surface
- Concrete – New concrete will need to be left for a minimum of seven days to set and settle before resin bound gravel can be laid on top of it, and existing concrete will need to be carefully washed and primed
Dry weather is an important prerequisite for laying Resin Bound Gravel surfacing and our installation team will need to guarantee at least four hours of dry weather in order to be assured that our resin will set properly. We understand that it can be frustrating when the weather is not on your side, but it doesn’t rain all the time and we are sure that we will have plenty of time to complete the installation in time to meet your deadlines.
Please note that light and intermittent rainfall will not ruin an installation and should have no effect on freshly installed but not yet fully cured Resin Bound Gravel surfacing.
Resin Bound Gravel needs to be left undisturbed for a period of time before it can bear weight. We recommend leaving resin driveways for at least 6-8 hours before allowing footfall and at least 12-16 hours before allowing vehicular access.
