The most popular choices for resin bound & bonded paving and why they’re so popular!

Resin surfacing is quickly becoming the surfacing of choice, but what are the most popular colour choices and why?

You would think that the most popular colours for resin bound and bonded paving would be the same, but interestingly that’s not the case.

Steel Grey Resin Bound Paving

This is one of the most popular choices for resin bound paving … mainly because grey is the ‘in’ colour at the moment, but also because of the modern and contemporary finish and the fact it complements any type of stone or brick. So whether you’re looking to revamp your driveway, garden or patio, or you are a commercial contractor for hard landscaping areas, then this is an excellent choice.

Steel Grey Resin Bound Paving consists of a 50:50 mix of Silver Grey Granite & Silver Blue Granite – resulting in a steel grey finish. The stones combine to create a long-lasting and slip-resistant surface, that is easy to maintain and will hold its colour throughout its entire lifespan!

Being a resin bound surface, it is completely porous, allowing water to pass through it and reach underground water sources. This results in little standing water and eliminates any possibility of future problems caused by surface water puddling. It’s also great in urban areas as it reduces surface water run-off and the risk of flooding

Lastly, but certainly not least, it looks great. The combination of practical use and an easy-on-the-eye finish cements this product as one of our best-sellers to date.

Resin Bonded in Amber Gold

If you follow any one of our social media profiles, then you are probably already familiar with our Amber Gold resin bonded surfacing. This aggregate, when scattered over the resin, results in a light and neutral finish. This means it goes with any surrounding, quite literally!

Whether clients are seeking a traditional or contemporary finish, this type of surfacing always seems to win customers over. The Amber Gold aggregate itself is made up of sharp individual stones, meaning it bonds extremely well with the resin which ultimately leads to little/no stone migration.

Boasting great durability, resin bonded Amber Gold also creates a lovely, uniform finish with a more aesthetically natural-looking stone. We find it most popular with housing developments or more traditional heritage sites, where clients are seeking a surfacing solution that can seamlessly blend the hard landscaping into the surrounding environment.

These are just two of many variations that we can offer here at HMS!
