How We Work
Free Quote & Site Survey
We offer a free site survey and no obligation quotation. We listen to your requirements and make suggestions to help you decide about the basic layout upon which we can base our quotation. Once agreed, we will measure the area taking all the factors into account including; groundworks, blocks and drainage. We will then supply a fully itemised, personalised quotation which we will thoroughly expain in order to answer any remaining questions you may have.
We never like you to make a decision on the day and we recommend you get at least 3 quotes before making an informed decision.
If you accept our quotation we will visit you for a second time. We will discuss the layout and line mark the area and photograph / document the work. This allows us to produce a detailed "Job Pack". This is produced in hard copy for the operatives on site to consult and is kept on our live system so it can be accessed at anytime from anywhere. The Job Pack contains all the information and checklists relevant to your specific job.
Most jobs are completed within 1 week. Due to our fast turnaround we require no deposits and no payments until complete. Our honest approach inspires trust and confidence.
Power Clean & Preparation of Existing Surfaces
When laying resin over an existing surface, preparation is key to a permanent and quality finish. Here at the The Yorkshire Resin Company we have a dedicated preparation and maintenance team called Power Clean who not only meticulously clean the surface with 2 x 250 bar pressure flat surface cleaners but also identify any weak areas which may need remedial work.
Once the existing surfaces are cleaned and repaired, they are primed with a resin primer. This further protects the surface and ensures maximum adhesion to the existing surface.

On the agreed date groundworks begin. The groundworks team leader will meet with you and discuss the job in hand and go through the "Job Pack" and advise you on the order of work and timescales. The Job Pack contains the job requirements and specifications which are signed off by the team leader at each stage as the work is completed.
It is crucial that work is carried out to specification to ensure the guarantee is worth more than the paper it's printed on!
Once all the groundworks are completed the powerclean team thoroughly clean the area using high power pressure washers to ensure the surface is ready for the resin finish. This is vitally important as a properly prepared surface is the key to a long lasting finish.
Powerclean also pay attention to surrounding areas i.e. the street, which keeps the neighbours happy.
Laying the Resin
Once all remedial and groundworks are complete you now have the perfect sub-base prepared in accordance with FeRFA and manufacturers` specifcations. It`s now time for our dedicated resin team to expertly finish your driveway.
On arrival, the resin team leader will check that all colours and amounts are correct and discuss the order of work and timescales with the customer. He will then double check preparation works and complete and sign a before resin check list in the "Job Pack".
The resin and aggregates are then mixed together in the correct ratios using a specialised action force mixer. They are then applied over the prepared surface to the required depth continuously from start to finish to achieve a seamless finish. As the resin is laid it is finished with a dusting of fine glass particles which sets into the curing surface. This gives extra grip when the surface is wet.
Once the resin is laid the area is cordoned off and is left to set. After 4 - 6 hours you can walk on your beautiful new resin bound driveway. However, it will be 24hrs before it`s ready for vehicles.
