Social Housing Complex in Manchester Gets the Rustik Refurbishment Treatment

The Prestwich & North Western Housing Association called on Flowcrete when it decided to give a new lease of life to the external walkways around its buildings in Prestwich, Manchester.

The existing finish was starting to show signs of age, wear and discoloration, with moss and weeds infiltrating the surface and in some places chunks had come out of the walkway, exposing the underlying concrete. The number of holes in the surface was not only unpleasant, but they were also presenting a serious trip hazard.

To rectify the walkway and turn it back into a colourful, functional and safe surface, Flowcrete UK supplied 650m2 of the polyurethane based transparent binder Flowbind.

A 12-18mm thick coating of natural stone screed in a bright red colour was chosen for the project, as it would match the appearance of the previous system and provide the site’s tenants with a durable and attractive finish.

The resin bonded stone system Flowbind contains colourful pieces of natural stone encapsulated in clear resin. The textured finish that Flowbind creates is slip resistant, which is ideal for external pedestrian areas that are exposed to the elements.
