When will I receive the guarantee

Your guarantee and aftercare will be sent out once full payment is received and you have registered your installation.


How permeable is Resin Bound Gravel?

We make sure we only use enough resin to coat each particle. This allows the aggregate to bond securely but also ensures that water can permeate through meaning water can flow freely away.

How long will Resin Bound Gravel last?

All of our installations come with a 20 year guarantee, however the resin technology suggests it will last in excess of 25 years. An Oltco Resin Bound Gravel Surface is fully guaranteed for 20 years against loose stone, cracking, oil damage, UV degradation, colour change, frost damage, workmanship. This guarantee is not transferable. 



What depth is the resin bound gravel normally laid at?

This will vary for each surface. It depends on the type of aggregate used and the type of application. Typically the depth is between 14-16 mm for pathways and 18-20 mm fro driveways.

Resin bound gravel can be laid in a variety of places including balconies, patios, pathways and around swimming pools.  You can find out more about the various applications on our home page.

Can a resin bound gravel surface be repaired?

Yes, Resin Bound Gravel is laid by hand and the area that needs repairing will be cut out and will then be filled and finished so it is completely level, however as it is a natural stone you may end up with a slightly different colour in the repaired areas.

Does weather effect the installation

We make every effort to ensure that weather conditions are suitable for laying resin bound gravel, if the conditions are not suitable we will endeavour to ensure notification ASAP and reorganise installation for the earliest possible date.  

What time will the team arrive?

Any time before 10am.  If the team will be arriving later than 10am the office will contact you.

Will you bring the stone with you?

The stone will be delivered the day before your installation unless previously advised.

How long before I can walk on my Drive?

You can walk on your drive the following morning, you can drive on it two days later.
