Tarmac Cleaning | Tarmac repairs | Surface Dressing 

Surface Dressing is a quick and effective way of giving a new lease of life to a tarmac surface that is beginning to show signs of fatigue and wear. The driveway or road is repaired with tarmac patching, made level with pre’ surface dressing patching and then a full top layer of K-170 hot premium bitumen is sprayed onto the tarmac surface quickly followed by high quality, local hardstone chipping. It is then rolled to ensure proper embedment of the aggregate into the bitumen binder. This provides an economical and water impervious layer with the added benefit of pothole prevention and a much-improved surface texture which provides increased skid resistance properties ensuring tarmac driveways is sealed from any further deteriation
