A Step by Step Guide to a Resin Bound Installation
If you’re looking to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your outdoor space, delve into the world of resin bound installation with Oltco. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through our expert resin bound installation process and how it can rejuvenate your property.
Step 1: Assessing and Preparing the Surface
The first step in the resin bound installation process is a crucial one and it is to assess and prepare the existing surface. Whether it’s a soil or a hardcore base, our goal is to create a stable and porous sub-base that forms a strong foundation for your resin bound application. Depending on the condition of your existing surface, it may need excavation to ensure a clean slate for the project.
Step 2: Introducing the Innovative Grid System
With the existing surface prepared, it’s time to introduce our innovative grid system. This grid acts as the framework for your resin bound surface, providing not only stability but also enhancing the drainage properties of your outdoor area. The grid system is carefully placed on top of the prepared sub-base.
Step 3: Infilling with Customized Gravel
Once the grid system is securely in place, the next step involves infilling it with gravel. This layer is pivotal in creating a porous surface that enables rainwater to drain through, preventing puddles and encouraging sustainable drainage. The type and size of gravel used can be customized to achieve your desired aesthetic and drainage characteristics.
Our skilled professionals will then hand-trowel the resin bound mixture onto the gravel layer, ensuring a smooth and even finish. This step requires precision and expertise to achieve the desired result.
Step 4: Witness the Transformation
As the resin bound mixture cures, you’ll witness a remarkable transformation. The resin bound surface not only enhances the visual appeal of your area, but also provides a non-slip and easy-to-maintain surface. It’s an ideal solution for driveways, pathways, patios, and more.
