How long do I need to leave before I can park my car on the drive?
Once the driveway has been laid, we recommend that 24 hours is left for the driveway to fully cure. A longer curing time can be expected in cooler temperatures. Ensure the surface isn’t soft or tacky before walking on the area.
Caring for your Resiscape Driveway
Like any surface, over time some wearing can occur, especially in heavier trafficked areas. Avoid dry steering on Resiscape driveways as this will encourage the aggregate to come loose.
As Resiscape is a mixed system of several fine quality materials, the guarantee is based on the installation. If installed correctly, the Resiscape system can last over 20 years.
To keep your Resiscape driveway well maintained, regularly brush the area with a stiff broom, and hose it down with fresh, clean water. Pavetuf General cleaner can be used for regular cleaning of your Resiscape project. To remove tougher moss and dirt, a household pressure washer can be used. We also recommend Pavetuf GreenOff cleaner, which is a specialist cleaner for organic staining. Oils, diesel and petrol can be harmful to your Resiscape surface if not cleaned immediately. If a spillage occurs, clean with fresh water and detergent.
Does the weather need to be good to lay the system?
The conditions need to be fair when the system is installed, the temperature should be between 5 and 25 degrees celsius and the stone and surface temperature should be at least 3 degrees above dew point. It is important that the surface is dry when the system is installed and doesn’t come into contact with water when curing.
What happens if it rains?
The product should not be laid if there is any rainfall, as this could result in ‘foaming’, resulting in a failed surface.
Is the product guaranteed?
The products supplied are fit for purpose when supplied. Once the products are mixed on site, any guarantee should be given by the installer to the project owner.
