Suitable For

 

Existing Substrates

Most Solid existing substrates can be used for bonded aggregate installation subject to a suitability survey on a per job basis

Tarmac

This is probably the most commonly used surface around. Old tarmac can be subject to severe degradation from wear, and moss growth, but can usually be used as a perfectly suitable substrate.

 

Concrete

Also very common concrete is the most structurally solid, dense substrate available. If deemed suitable this not only assures an unbelievably hard wearing surface, but prevents one of the most expensive, disruptive excavations around.

MOT

Also known as hardcore. This is a sub base layer, and needs a solid substrate installing on top of it before the bonded aggregate is installed (see below)

Imprinted Concrete, Cobbles / Block Paving, Existing Bonded Aggregate, Bound Aggregate, Misc

 

 

 

 

New Substrates

If there is no existing surface, or a new substrate installation is required we can arrange these works, or advise you of specifications of what would be needed if you would rather arrange or carry out the works yourself. We recommend either :

Tarmac

Suitable for any size of installation, but always the best option for larger areas (usually over 100sqm) as tarmac has an element of flexibility which avoids the need for expansion joints. Tarmac also works out much more cost effective as a base for bonded aggregate on larger areas when compared to concrete.

 

Concrete

Usually used for smaller areas. Concrete unlike a good tarmac installation does not require large amounts of equipment, and can produce a tight, neat finish around small / detailed areas where it would be difficult to compact tarmac efficiently. On the down side concrete has no flexibility, and can be susceptible to cracks if not correctly installed with expansion joints. Concrete also requires 28days drying time before the Aggribond bonded aggregate system is applied.
