Over time, private roads such as carparks and footpaths wear out. The cracks appear on the surface dressing, which means the roads should be fixed by a surfacing professional. This way, the road becomes stronger and safer for pedestrians and drivers to use. Surface dressing involves the application of a coating of hot bitumen on the surface.
It is then layered with stone chippings that are rolled on the bitumen to create a water-resistant layer. Road surface dressing is now a long established road maintenance technique for repairing private roads, domestic and commercial roads as it provides the following benefits:
• A waterproof seal to the surface of the footpath or carriageway
• Enhances skid resistance of the surface by creating texture and depth
• Avoid the penetration of water and damage to the underlying foundations
• Enhances the appearance of the footpath or carriageway using its naturally-coloured aggregates
