paperclip
  • Location: Leeds
  • Issue: Cheap imitation resin, mixed with wrong ratio of stone along with a poor design and installation.
  • Outcome: The stone within the resin is coming loose and wearing away.
paperclip Badly Laid Resin
  • Location: Location - Ossett, Wakefield, 2019
  • Issue: Cheap imitation resin, combined with wrong ratio and wrong type of aggregate laid over a badly prepared existing subbase.
  • Outcome: This has lead to the catastrophic failure of this driveway in a short period of time.
paperclip
  • Location: Golcar, Huddersfield
  • Issue: Bad Preparation, wrong kind of tarmac laid too thin and not very well.
  • Outcome: Had the resin been applied the driveway would have probably started to fail within 1-2 years.
paperclip
  • Location: Casa Hotel, Brighouse, Huddersfield
  • Issue: Wrong resin laid over a surface that had not been prepared and primed. Preparation is essential when overlaying on concrete.
  • Outcome: After 18 months the resin had totally worn away from traffic heavy areas, and it was crumbling away with what was left.
paperclip
  • Location: Halifax
  • Issue: Badly laid resin
  • Outcome: A very uneven surface
paperclip
  • Location: Location - Wilberfoss, York
  • Issue: Technical issue- inadequate sub base, badly prepared, wrong resin for stone choice.
  • Outcome: Outcome- this drive way has been down 6 months and the car has worn the resin bound away down to the concrete installed underneath. The whole driveway needs to be pulled out and to be done again from scratch.
