Resin bound surfacing is a visually striking alternative to loose gravel, tarmac, block paving and concrete that transforms outdoor spaces. Resin Bound Aggregate provides a tough, easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing surface that gives the appearance of natural gravel without the associated disadvantages.
The process involves blending a specially formulated resin with aggregate prior to application, which is then trowelled onto the desired surface for a smooth and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The resin mix is laid at a thickness of 18-20mm.
Dares Surfacing can use resin bound surfacing to transform driveways, patios, steps, walkways and swimming pool surrounds. Our wide range of aggregates allows each customer to select a colour which best compliments their property.
We are supplied by Leeson Polyurethanes Ltd who are BBA approved. Leeson are the UK’s largest manufacturer of MDI polyurethane one component and two component structural adhesives. At Dares Surfacing, we use Leeson’s BBA approved, two component resin system which boasts a 10 year warranty.
Not only do we specialise in domestic transformations, but we continue to work on a commercial scale. Jobs of this nature include work at Ladram Bay Holiday Park, Costa Coffee in Plymouth and Woodlands Hotel in Sidmouth. Once a surface is fully prepared, we have the ability to lay up to 1000m2 of resin on a clear day.
We also offer a wide range of edging options to compliment the resin finish. The finish is an anti-slip, weed proof, porous surface which can be walked on within a day of laying and driven on after three days.
When required, our team can prepare a suitable base and carry out localised repairs if deemed necessary prior to installation. An existing base of either tarmac or concrete can be utilised if it is in suitable condition.

In 2007, flooding in the UK caused an estimated 3 billion pounds worth of damage. Since October 2008, permitted development rights have changed to decrease the amount of flooding in the UK.
Property owners have since been allowed to resurface their driveways without the burden of planning permission, as long as the installed surface is permeable. This is because surfaces such as the Resin Bound system help to greatly reduce the impact of water run-off and flooding.
