Why choose resin bound gravel ?.
The demand for resin bound gravel drive ways, paths and swimming pool
surrounds has grown hugely in past years due to an increase in flooding, awareness in flood prevention and general business growth here in Cornwall and across the country. Installed correctly by professionals like Oltco Ltd, Resin Bound Gravel will last for more than 25 years.
Here are some of the reasons people are choosing resin bound gravel
Resistant to weather conditions; will not freeze in winter, does not fade or soften in sunlight.
It’s permeable. Resin bound gravel is cold mixed on site using a process that ensures every particle of stone is completely covered in resin. This allows the aggregate to bond securely but also ensures that water can permeate through meaning it can flow freely away. This makes resin bound gravel paving SuDS compliant which is why its a big yes for the construction industry, new builders and home owners.
Aesthetically pleasing; resin bound gravel is sustainable, practical, versatile and decorative. The gravel comes in a variety of colours and shapes from very modern looking to beachy to traditional.
Resin Bound Gravel reduces the heat island effect, this happens when surfaces such as concrete absorb and store heat. Our resin bound gravel allows soil underneath to breathe, reducing surface temps (heat island effect).
Reduces water puddles – which again reduces surface water run off and flash flooding.
No planning permission required. No planning is required for areas less than 5m2 or if the new surface is permeable.
Durable. Resin bound gravel has a long lasting surface, when installed and maintained can last for more than 25 years and can withstand a huge amount of pressure from cars, vans even trucks.
Requires minimal maintenance- there are no loose stones to sweep, or weeding of weeds. Just an occasional power wash and brush will keep it looking as good as new.
