Breathe life into tired a surface!
Utilize old paving by making it the base for the next
Often an area of existing paving can become worn and patched up, even cracked without losing its structural strength and integrity.
StoneSet can be used as a surface dressing to bring it back to life, looking better than ever. When originally conceived StoneSet was designed simply for an attractive, natural surface for overlaying concrete and asphalt.

Scroll through the gallery below showing the number of fantastic driveway overlay installations we’ve done over the years.
Read how StoneSet resin bound stone outlasts Concrete aggregate alternatives.
Natural stone overlay – No concrete sent to landfill.
By using an existing surface you can dramatically reduce the amount of raw material used to replace the paving as well as eliminating the waste being taken to landfill.
Natural stone has less embodied energy than cement, with an overall lower carbon emission (energy used to create concrete products and transport)
Existing hard edges – As part of the preparation we will chase out enough depth so the StoneSet will eventually meet flush with existing surfaces like your garage slab, pathway and gutter edge. Here the StoneSet meets the edge of the existing tiles perfectly, providing a seamless tie in.
By not having to remove any old product and taking advantage of a quick installation method, StoneSet can help bring a refurbishment in on time and budget. You can even incorporate logos, patterns and design into the surface.
Expansion Joints – Our new expansion joints comprise of an aluminium strip which is filled with mastic which provides greater resilience to underlying movement.The strip is effective, hardly noticeable and very neat looking. The generic aluminium strip as shown in the photo above can still be used for areas not prone to movement.
Using an existing impervious surface such as concrete doesn’t mean that you can’t make full use of the porous nature of StoneSet products. By incorporating a drainage channel as a collection point the water can still be collected before reaching drains and returned to the water table or harvested on site for re-use.
