Frequently Asked Questions
So, what is Resin Bound Stone?
Resin Bound Stone is mixed gravel aggregate bonded with a clear resin binder. This process basically binds the stones together with resin. The result is a slightly flexible, durable and solid layer of beautiful surfacing in a variety of colour options.
Is it expensive?
It’s not very expensive compared to other materials and labour costs. If it’s a solid base, you can lay the resin stone directly on top. This reduces the overall costs of labour and groundwork. To make the ground solid by putting down a layer of Sub Base and Tarmac, it can increase costs slightly. However, in the long run it can last longer and is more durable. Plus it looks much nicer than traditional tarmac or paving. Click here to get a quote to see how much your project will cost.
