When choosing a Resin Bound Contractor to lay your Resin Bound Surface, it is important to ensure that the Resin Bound contractor that you select is a reputable one. Cork Resin Bound Surfaces only use the best quality resin bound systems and stone aggregates available.
It is possible to lay Resin Bound Surfaces during the latter months of the year, however, many Resin Bound Surfacing Contractors will not lay resin surfaces in adverse cold and wet weather conditions because it may take longer for the resin to set.
To ensure a smooth, seamless finish, it is vital that the base upon which the Resin Bound Surface is applied, must be solid and even. If the base is unstable or uneven, the resin bound surface may break away from the sub base, which will allow frost and moisture to get in. If this happens, it is impossible to repair the resin bound surface and the repair will be noticeable. The problem area would need to be cut out and redone. In this instance, owing to the aging of the surrounding area, the colour variations and colour mix of replacement stones etc. it might be impossible to match the colour of the replacement with the existing area.
Cork Resin Bound Surfacing will carry out a site survey at the time of quoting for any proposed works and Cork Resin Bound Surfacing will always point out any uneven or unsound areas which will not be suitable for laying a resin surface over. If ground works are required to prepare the surface prior to the laying of the resin.
