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: Meanwood, Leeds
  • Issue: Bad preparation, the worst preparation we have ever seen just 1-2 inches of concrete smeared over mud. Shocking!
  • Outcome: Not only would this job have looked awful, once used for parking it would have probably started to fail within weeks.
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.
