Tarmac overlaying or resurfacing is not a job for the ordinary handyman. If you don’t believe me ask your neighbours they will have the horror stories for you. It is however, if done right an affordable option for many homeowners.
It requires specialists with skills, the right materials, specialist machinery and needs men with experience luckily here at Capital Driveways we have every angle covered.
Resurfacing a driveway basically means installing a new layer of tarmac directly over the top of the existing layer. There is no need for a completely new surface/ driveway. A new topcoat of tarmac is applied to the existing surface with the help of a bitumen adhesive in order to bond the existing surface to the new tarmac. After that, Capital Driveways roll it to provide a smooth finish.
The method is a great alternative as long as it is done correctly by trained professionals. Tarmac overlay can be applied to existing tarmac driveways, paths, and forecourts.
The process takes place in the following order:-
- Cleaning of your existing driveway of all loose material.
- Repairing of any edging courses that are loose or damaged.
- Repairing of minor damages on the existing surface.
- Cutting of required joints in order to reduce heights or increase clearance.
- Making up the areas that are prone to water collection.
- Treat any problem areas, if required.
- Covering of your existing driveway surface with emulsion or tack coat which does the job of bonding the new layer to the old one.
- Laying a wearing course.
There are several reputed companies here in Scotland that are providing tarmac overlaying services. They are landscape, block paving and tarmac driveway specialists. They also install block paved edge restraints to give a completely new look to the surface.
If you are worried about the process being done correct then don’t worry, Capital Driveways provide a professional tarmac overlaying solution at affordable rates.
