Laying Resin Bound Surfaces: Brief Q&A

A really common question is about what you can lay resin on, and in this article, we’ll be addressing some of the most common concerns about the issue.

Resin driveways and resin patios are becoming more and more popular these days due to their various advantages and benefits.

But it’s also important to learn what surfaces can you lay resin on because usually, people prefer laying it over existing surfaces such as paving, tarmac or concrete.

Long story short, if you have and existing tired Tarmac driveway or a pretty cracked concrete patchwork slab in the back yard, all these surfaces can be overlaid with resin bound surface because it will look great and also last a really long time with the proper care.

You will not need to dig up for a base and make a big mess around the house.

Here are the most frequent questions about this subject.

Can you lay resin bound surfaces over concrete?

Reson bound surfacing is able to bond well to concrete surfaces. Concrete can absorb moisture, but it’s important to note that it’s not permeable.

Can resin bound surfaces be installed over block paving?

This is a pretty controversial topic according to some experts.

As long as the preparatory processes are carried out correctly, this can be achieved, but you cannot lay resin bound surfacing straight over block paving without any preparation because you’ll see cracks over time.

But, if the surface is consolidated and strengthened, it can be used as a base.

Can resin bound surfacing be installed over tarmac?

The answer is also yes in this case as well. This is also the most popular base for the application of resin bound surfacing.

It‘s also worth noting that an open grade asphalt surface is really great for resin bound because it’s permeable and has a flexural strength.
