Oltco Resin Bound Gravel Driveways Cornwall

Oltco to the rescue!

When Oltco were called to visit this property we were shocked to see the state of the driveway and gutted for the poor people who lived here.  They had been taken in by a friendly company who had promised to lay the ultimate resin bound gravel driveway, cheaply.  Not that cheaply though.  Over £4000 later and the couple were left with this mess on their driveway and no way to recoup their money.  They were no longer able to contact the contractors and there was no address they could visit to attempt to get their money back.

As the couple were local and had clearly been taken in by these cowboys, we worked out a special price to relay their entire driveway, with a 20 year guarantee.

Tips to help you find a reliable resin bound installer

We understand you are spending thousands of pounds and wanting a driveway that lasts, which is why it is very important to research a company before you hand over a deposit.  Here's some things to look for and how to find out more about the company you might choose.

 
  • An established company with a good track record.

A company that has been around for a good few years, with a solid customer base and experience is worth its weight in gold.  It shows that they will be in business in the future if you need them.  A good tip is to take a look on companies house, a site offering free company information including how long they have been in business.  For a resin company you would ideally like them to have been in business for over 10 years as they will have a good understanding and knowledge of the products available and the techniques required.

  • A company with a good reputation

Reputation is everything in business.  In todays digital world its easy for companies to post testimonials on their website proclaiming their amazing customer service and outstanding quality of work, however its also easy to make these things up.  Luckily for us as consumers it's also easy to find testimonials/reviews from real people using a variety of social media and independent websites such as Google, Facebook , Houzz and yell.com.  A well established business, with a loyal client base, will have reviews across these and other site and its a great way to get a feel for the way the company really works, and the level of satisfaction of their clients.  To find online reviews about a company simply type the company name into your search engine followed by reviews ie. Oltco reviews

  • A place to visit

An office or workplace that can be visited shows an enthusiasm to provide strong customer service and gives you a place to go if you have any problems.

  • Is there a guarantee and what does it cover?

Your guarantee should clearly state what is covered and for how long.  The guarantee will only be valid if the company is still in business. 

Remember cheapest isn’t always best! As in reality you could end up paying twice. Resin bound installers are popping up everywhere in recent years but there are very few who last.  This is due to lack of research and using inferior products to keep their prices cheap.  So do your research and if you need any advice give us a call.
