Any planning permission or building terms permits where required shall be obtained by the purchaser and charges related thereto be paid directly to the relevant authority.
The purchaser is responsible for providing complete free and easy access to the working area of the site for materials, machinery and the provision of all necessary electrical, water and any other services. Any additional cost incurred through the purchaser not providing such shall be chargeable to, and payable by, the purchaser, unless such terms have been agreed by the company and purchaser.
Concrete and stone products require a curing period after laying operations have been completed. The length of this period is usually governed by the weather and type of volume and weight of traffic to be encountered. At the time of handing over the completed facility, the company will advise the purchaser on this and any other precautions to be taken. The company cannot be held responsible for any damage that may result from failure to follow these instructions, and such failure may invalidate the warranty given by the company under this contract.
The company shall not be liable for any delays for any reasons whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of the company including, without prejudice to the foregoing inclement weather or unreasonable site conditions, proceeding taken or threatened by other disputes with third parties. Delay by other contractors, workmen or tradesmen engaged or nominated by the purchaser not referred to in the quotation shall be charged at £800 per each day the company is held up. Authorised extra or additional items being added to the contract, any combinations of the workmen, strike or lock-out, difficulty in obtaining suitable materials, then the company shall not be held liable to the purchaser for the delay in the completion of work and the purchaser, at least for the period of delay, shall allow a fair and reasonable extension of such completion.
Subject to provision of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 (or any statutory modification thereof) the company shall not be liable for any damage, loss or personal injury whatsoever, arising consequential upon or incidental to the use of works referred to in the quotation either during the period of construction or at any time thereafter. Buyers should be aware of the potential hazards to health and safety represented in the types of goods supplied by the Seller, stored in the Seller’s premises, in transit or stored on site. It shall be the Buyers responsibility to comply with any and all Regulations pertaining to the works.
Where part of the work is being carried out by the purchaser, our price submitted is based upon this work being carried out in a workman like manner and strictly to the agreed time schedule with regard to proper preparations so our work is not jeopardised in any way. This particularly applies to excavation work. Additional costs in our work due to bad workmanship or hindrance on the part of the purchaser’s workmen will constitute an extra charge to the purchaser.
In the event of any dispute arising during the course of, or subsequent to, completion of work, the purchaser shall not be entitled to withhold any payment whatsoever, the company will rectify or replace the work, which is subject to the said dispute.
Upon entering into a contract with the buyer, Advanced Resin Solutions Ltd undertakes the following risks and responsibilities:-
The Company undertakes that in accordance with the Sale of Goods and Services Act 1982 that the goods will comply with their description and will be free of any material defect at the time of installation.
In carrying out preparatory work on site, implementing the contract and clearing the site on completion, every possible care will be taken by the company to minimise disturbance caused by vehicles, plant and equipment using the access route(s) to reach the working area and the area immediately around the site.
We endeavour to provide a seamless finish to the surface; however this is not always possible. In such circumstances a joining or expansion strip may be required.
Without prejudice to any remedies that the company might have in the cancellation of an order by the purchaser, the company reserves the right to recover such costs that have occurred, however incurred.
Where extra work is ordered by the purchaser, either in writing or verbally, this order will be confirmed by the company to the purchaser in writing, email or text message. Unless within 7 days the order is rescinded the same will be treated as confirmed. Where ever possible, quotations will be submitted for additional work and variations as the contract proceeds but otherwise will be charged at a fair price, based on such variations.
The company shall not be held responsible for the minor departures from the contract specifications or drawings made necessary by site conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
The company will endeavour to make the new surface as level as practically possible. An average tolerance of 20mm per m² is allowed. Due to the nature of the materials used, in that they are naturally sourced, this can mean that there is the potential for slight colour differences in the finished installation. Furthermore, in certain lights it may be possible for trowel and machinery marks to be visible due to naturally occurring variations in the aggregate.
In the event that adverse weather conditions prevent the installation from going ahead on the specified date, we will endeavour to reschedule at the earliest possible convenience. If the new date proposed is not accepted by the customer then Advanced Resin Solutions reserves the right to delay the works until a time most suitable to the company.
In addition to its statutory obligations, Advanced Resin Solutions, warrants a 10 year period on completion of the contract, the company will make good, free of charge, any defects which are due to faulty workmanship, provided the facility is treated with reasonable care and any maintenance instructions have been adhered to. Written notice of any claim against this warranty must be received within 14 days of the warranty period.
Advanced Resin Solutions Ltd cannot be held responsible for the on-going structural or matrix condition of existing surfaces, or new surfaces laid by others, onto which its resin bound coating is applied.
It is the responsibility of the buyer to inform the company of any existing and unwanted pooling prior to the application of the specialist resin coating. Whilst every effort will be taken to remove any reported pooling, the company can accept no responsibility for standing water or other drainage issues on existing surfaces or new surfaces laid by others.
The above warranty does not cover sub-surface issues unless the underlying substrate was constructed and installed by Advanced Resin Solutions Ltd.
It is important to note that the resin bound system is only suitable for use where the maximum weight of a vehicle using the surface does not exceed 2.5 tonnes and as such, the warranty will not extend to such circumstances.
Advanced Resin Solutions Ltd is dedicated to supplying the best possible service with the utmost quality products. We are confident that all our installations are brilliant examples of our exemplary quality standards and the finished product will be a hard wearing, durable surface that will deliver exceptional performance for a range of uses from light domestic to heavy commercial. Because of this, we are proud to offer a 10 year warranty on all our resin bound stone installations.
Our warranty is conditional upon:
- A suitable base (e.g. asphalt or concrete), or other approved substrate being provided i.e. firm, intact, clean, well-drained and strong enough for the intended use.
- The surface only being used for its specified application.
- Our advice for after care and maintenance being followed.
Our 10 year warranty does not cover:
- Damage caused by forceful impact, excessive point loads, other mechanical damage and excessive usage.

- Damage or staining caused by chemicals, fuels, solvents or any other external agent.
- Damage caused by repairs made to, or adjacent to, the surface or to the underlying base.
- A decrease in permeability caused by ingress of dirt, fine materials or other causes.
- Mineralogical variations (including rust spotting) in the stone which have an effect on its physical, mechanical or aesthetic properties.
- Any consequential and indirect losses.
- Surface changes due to natural weathering.
- Hairline Fractures.
- Any base/substrate work as this is covered by a separate 3 year warranty• Any failures relating to the products used during installation as this is covered in line with the warranty offered by the supplier.
N.B. If the sub-base is already in place and not installed by Advanced Resin Solutions, we undertake only to repair the work completed by ourselves i.e. in circumstances where the resin fails. If cracks occur as a result of the sub-base, this cannot be remedied via the warranty provided.
A quality and warrantied installation of resin bound stone is dependent on a number of factors. These include, temperature, humidity, rainfall and dew point. As experienced installers we always advise people of when we believe the conditions to be reasonable to work with resin bound stone. If we are instructed to install outside of these parameters we cannot be liable or responsible for any failures in the materials or installation whatsoever. Furthermore, in these instances we do not offer any warranty on the finished surface. If the surface needs additional work in the future, this will also be charged at full cost. We will, however, use all of our knowledge and skills to try our best to ensure the surface is finished to as high a standard as possible.
Advanced Resin Solutions Ltd will endeavour to resolve all disputes within 28 days and will do so in accordance with the Terms and Conditions provided on this site.
