SureSet paving installation Bircholme Drive

As the only Elite Approved SureSet installer in the North East we were asked to provide a quote to refresh the driveway and pathways at Bircholme, The Drive.

Having initially approached SureSet with a sample’s enquiry via its website, and reviewed a few products, the client selected 6mm Winter Bronze.

The stone was supplied by Long Rake Spar and the aluminium edging used was from Alferpro UK Ltd.

Our team embeds expertise and experience into every project, which is just one of the reasons we have continued to be an Elite Approved SureSet installer for the past 10 years.
We excavated the 91m² driveway to the correct levels and installed sandstone setts to the perimeter of the driveway, as well as forming a central circle area. After all preparation works were completed, we firstly laid porous tarmac to the area, as this forms a stable foundation for the resin to go on top of, and we then installed 18mm thick 6mm SureSet resin bound permeable paving in ‘Winter Bronze’ to the driveway to give it the finished look.

For the large footpath, which covers an area of 472 m², the works were slightly different and required less preparation. There was already a concrete footpath in place which we installed the SureSet resin directly onto. We started by installing an Alferpro edging trim to the perimeter of the footpath and then primed the area.  Following this, we installed 16mm thick 6mm SureSet resin bound permeable paving in “Winter Bronze” to match the driveway.

The project took around two weeks to complete due to the complexity in preparing the driveway area.

Following the refresh of the driveway and extensive pathways the client can now benefit from new seamless pathways, which is guaranteed to be puddle free and long lasting with SureSet’s 21-year guarantee.

Its large drive will also be simple to maintain and the natural aggregate is not only aesthetically beautiful but it matches the brick work of the home.
