Where can Tarmac Cumbria be used?
Anywhere From tarmac driveways, private roads, residential drives, foot paths and walkways, farm roads, silage pits, caravan parks, tennis courts, school playgrounds, golf clubs, just about all premises road surfaces can benefit from tarmacadam.
What will we do?
It all depends on the existing surface for example if you have an old tarmac driveway 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 or asphalt surfacing 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.
