Gibbs Surfacing Ltd, a recently Approved SureSet Installer specialising in resin-bound paving, was tasked with completing their training with a challenging project in Swindon, Wiltshire. The project involved the installation of a resin-bound driveway and pathway using SureSet's UV ProResin and SureSet natural aggregate blend 6mm Butterscotch, supplied by Grantex. The project aimed to transform Gibbs’ outdoor space into an aesthetically pleasing and durable surface that would enhance the overall appearance and functionality of their property.
Mr Gibbs had specific requirements for his driveway and pathway:
Aesthetic Appeal: He wanted a visually appealing surface that would complement the style of their home and landscaping.
Durability: They sought a long-lasting solution that could withstand the heavy loads of vehicles on the driveway and foot traffic on the pathway.
Low Maintenance: The clients desired a low-maintenance surface that would not require frequent cleaning or repairs.
Customisation: For the pathway, featured steps to include resin-bound risers to offer continuity.
Gibbs Surfacing Ltd began by thoroughly preparing the existing surface, including removing debris, weeds, and loose material. The substrate was then cleaned, and any necessary repairs were made to ensure a stable base for the resin-bound system.
A 20mm depth of SureSet UV ProResin and natural aggregate 6mm Butterscotch was applied for the driveway. The pathway, which featured steps with resin-bound risers, was installed at a 16mm depth using the same materials. The combination of UV ProResin and Butterscotch aggregate met the aesthetic requirements and provided excellent durability and slip resistance.
The installation included mixing the resin and aggregate on-site, ensuring a seamless and uniform finish. Skilled installers used trowels and hand tools to lay the mixture evenly, paying particular attention to the risers on the pathway steps. The team worked efficiently to minimise any disruptions.
The completed resin-bound paving project in Swindon met and exceeded the client's expectations:
Aesthetic Excellence: The driveway and pathway featured a stunning, smooth surface with a natural stone appearance that blended seamlessly with the surroundings.
Durability: The SureSet UV ProResin and Butterscotch aggregate combination ensured a robust and durable surface capable of withstanding heavy loads and foot traffic for years.
Low Maintenance: The resin-bound surface was easy to clean and maintain, reducing the clients' long-term maintenance efforts and costs.
Safety: The pathway and steps with resin-bound risers provided a secure walking surface, enhancing the homeowner's and guests' safety.
Gibbs Surfacing Ltd's successful completion of the resin-bound paving project in Swindon met the client's aesthetic and functional requirements and showcased the company's expertise in the field. The durable and visually pleasing surface created using SureSet UV ProResin and natural aggregate 6mm Butterscotch has added significant value to the property while ensuring years of enjoyment with minimal maintenance. This project is an excellent example of the quality and craftsmanship Gibbs Surfacing Ltd brings to its installations.Enquire
