    Does anybody know if you can get the resin in a slate grey colour?

    This is what I call slate grey, is this what you are after Rachelle?

    It is difficult to achieve a slate colour with a bound system as the resins impart a wet/gloss look which darkens the aggregates and if the colour is imperative then it may be worth considering a bonded system.

    If the surface needs to bound then perhaps a combination of green/greys will provide something close to what you require.

    Thank you, my builder did suggest the bonded resin, but I wasn't so keen.
    The above colour Stuart posted looks great, so hopefully I can get that

    If the contractor doesn't have a slate grey, the above picture is a combination of green and silver.

    I would defiantly check if your builder/contractor is an experienced installer of these systems or is using a sub-contractor who is experienced. Resin bound is an amazing product but needs to be installed by professionals!
