Road Surfacing Contractors – What Do We Do?

From highways to agricultural roads, we design, construct, and surface multiple types of road to an exceptional standard. We cover all aspects of surfacing, including road resurfacing, pothole repair services, road surface repairs, car park line marking and resin or tarmac surfacing. We’re also experienced road marking contractors.

Our specialist team can design the foundation, surface course, and drainage system to the highest quality to ensure the finished product will last for years to come.
As different types of road have varying durability requirements, we can also offer expert advice on what is best for your grounds and recommend the best road surfacing materials.

Why invest in a resurfaced road?

There are a number of notable benefits to installing a new road surface. These include:

  • Improved safety thanks to increased grip
  • There’s less risk of damage being caused to vehicles, as all potholes will be filled
  • A smoother surface makes the road more enjoyable to drive on
  • The appearance of the road is drastically improved, giving visitors or road users a better impression of the area
  • Reduced upkeep: a fresh road surface should last for a long time without needing to be repaired

What’s Our Process?

We’ll begin the process with a site visit from our director to ensure all the details of your project are discussed and finalised before work goes ahead.

Clear the road: The road being resurfaced needs to be cleared of pedestrians and vehicles. Once that has been organised, we can ensure any debris, such as gravel, is also cleared. This is essential for creating a quality, long-lasting finish.

Prepare the drainage: Next, we’ll prepare the surface for appropriate water drainage, ensuring rainwater can run-off the road sufficiently. This is vital to reduce surface water and to minimise the risk of potholes forming.

Lay the sub-base: Once all the preparations are complete, we can lay the sub-base. This is a crucial step as it can determine the lifespan of the road. We’ll ensure you have the correct level of thickness according to the volume of traffic and types of vehicle that use the road.

Lay the new surface: Now it’s time to lay your road surfacing materials. We’ll use a machine to deposit and evenly distribute the fresh surface. If applying tarmac or asphalt, we’ll then ensure the final result is smooth and flush, with no uneven areas.

Road Surfacing Material We Use

There are many types of road surfaces that we use that are quite popular such as tarmacadam, asphalt and golden gravel. Learn more about these below.

What is Tarmacadam?

Tarmacadam, or tarmac, is made using macadam surfaces, tar and sand. Tarmac is also used to refer to a variety of other materials, including tar-grouted macadam, bituminous surface treatments and modern asphalt concrete. It is a popular road surface material.

We offer tarmac road surfacing in Peterborough, Romford and the entirety of the UK, with a range of colours available.

What Is Asphalt?

Asphalt and bitmac are popular road surface materials formulated by mixing aggregates, bitumen, lime, and sand or finely crushed stone. Hot-rolled asphalt and stone mastic asphalt are specially designed for heavier traffic usage, such as industrial sites and commercial and agricultural yards.

Asphalt comes in a variety of colours, including black, green, red, and beige. Aside from the commonly used black, coloured asphalt can be very expensive. To avoid these high costs, our asphalt contractors can apply various coloured aggregates before the asphalt is compacted. The aggregates are then coated with resin to ensure it achieves a good level of adhesion with the surface.

What Is Golden Gravel?

Another type of material we offer is golden gravel, which offers an attractive effect with a smooth finish. These resin bound surfaces are also favoured for providing an anti-slip surface, which is achieved by using hardened aggregates.

Our golden gravel is coated in a clear resin before being applied directly onto hot asphalt. Once compacted into the asphalt surface, the resin melts with the heat which bonds the asphalt and resin-coated aggregates together.

As the length of time between resurfacing depends on the traffic and the material used, it is good to check whether your road is in need of this service.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most durable road surface?
Of the surfaces we offer, both tarmac and asphalt are the most durable. We can supply asphalt that’s been specifically designed for heavy use areas, like industrial sites and busy commercial yards.

How long does it take to surface a road?
The time it takes to complete your project will vary depending on the size of the surface area, the material you choose and the level of prep work required. We always aim to minimise downtime as much as possible, and can work around your schedule to limit any disruption. Contact us today to discuss your requirements with a member of our team.

How quickly can you repair a pothole?
We aim to complete all emergency pothole repairs within 48 hours of you getting in touch.

How are roads built?
In brief, our process involves clearing the road of any existing debris, preparing the drainage to ensure there will be no issues in wet weather, laying the sub-base and then laying the new surface material that has been chosen. You can read more about this in our full process above.

How long will a road surface last for?
This varies depending on the materials used and the manner in which the road surface is used. However, you can generally expect a road surface dressing to last in the region of 10-15 years.

What’s the difference between repaving and resurfacing?
Resurfacing involves laying fresh asphalt over the top of the old surface and then resealing it. Meanwhile, repaving constitutes removing the existing layer of asphalt before laying the new surface.

How much does it cost to resurface a road?
The cost of road surfacing varies significantly depending on the material chosen, the extent of the preparatory work required and, naturally, the size of the road. To arrange a site visit and get your free, no-obligation quote, please get in touch with us.

What is road surfacing?
Road surfacing is a blanket term for different types of road repair and resurfacing techniques. These include more superficial approaches like surface dressing (which involves applying a new layer of bitumen and chippings over an existing road surface to keep it in good shape) and more comprehensive resurfacing jobs, where an entirely new surface is created.
