Site Name: St Mary’s Church Location: Ambleside, Cumbria Surface Type: Resin Bonded Gravel
St Mary’s Church required a new and improved pathway leading up to the idyllic church setting. DCM Surfaces installed Peal Quartz Resin Bonded Gravel to give a refined and high quality finish to the church grounds.
Q. Resin bound and resin bonded – What is the difference? A. Bonded: A layer of resin is screeded onto a surface and then a fine aggregate is scattered over the top and rolled in. This produces a rough surface that is not porous. Bound: Aggregate is mixed with resin in a mixer and then hand-trowelled into place to produce a surface that is smooth and porous. Porous resin bound surfaces perform better than non-porous resin bonded ones, allowing drainage of surface water and better environmental compliance.
Q. Can resin bonded surfacing be laid on my existing surface? A. For your base to have the same lifespan as the new resin bonded surfacing, a new base is preferable.
Q. Is resin bonded surfacing ideal for my driveway? A. Bound gravel is more suited for driveways as the gravel will remain in place when vehicles drive over it.
