What will we do?

It all depends on the existing surface for example if you have an old Tarmac driveways in Penrith which is in very bad condition, cracked, potholed etc the existing surface would be completely removed. Then we would use a solid base to build up the driveway to a necessary level which then would be compacted. We can then coat the area with a tack coat bitumen to help bond the base and the newly laid product together. Finally we would re-surface using a grade of Tarmacadam Penrith to suit which would then be power rolled until we reach an even consolidated area. We can then seal the edges with bitumen to stop water ingress on the joints.
