Surface Dressing and Road Repairs Cumbria
Surface dressing Cumbria protects the road’s surface and seals the road from water damage. Most of the time, this process is done after driveway tarmac repairs Cumbria to protect the area.
What is Surface Dressing Cumbria?
Surface dressing Cumbria is a treatment that is applied to roads that are in state of repair. The treatment is made from bitumen and aggregate chippings, which seals the top layer of the road. This helps keep the road in good condition and lessens the need of road patch repairs Cumbria.
Will My Road or Driveway need to be closed?
In most cases, roads are not completely closed during surface dressing. However, the lane or your driveway may need to be closed to protect the surface until it is dry. Full roads are closed only if there is no safe passage during the work operation. These areas will be marked with signs.
Even though surface dressing Cumbria only takes a short amount of time to complete, there will be times when access to the properties will be limited. If you need to access your property, you should speak with one of the site workers to see if they can move for a few seconds, so you can get onto your property. Most times, this will not be a problem.
When is Surface Dressing Cumbria Done?
Like many other Car Park Pothole repairs Cumbria, the surface dressing is most times done from April until August. It may be possible to have surface dressing done earlier or later than that time period, but it will depend greatly on the weather conditions and the road. Most times, the work is done during the day and workers try to avoid working during rush hours.
How Long Does the Work Take?
In most areas, surface dressing takes about 1 to 3 days to complete, depending on the size of the area and existing condition, the more repairs needed to be made the longer it takes to carry out being worked on. Sweeping is done in intervals for about a week, and then the lining is replaced if needed.
Why Not Just Resurface the Road?
If roads were resurfaced, instead of having a surface dressing applied, they would need to be replaced four times more often. This is because many drivers prefer to drive on roads that have been newly resurfaced or replaced because these roads are smoother. Many times, this causes a huge amount of traffic on these roads. The process of resurfacing a road is also more time consuming and expensive than surface dressing. In most areas, the surface dressing is only needed about every 5 to 10 years.
