Trusted Northumberland Surface Dressing Contractors
We are a specialist surface dressing contractor covering Northumberland. We carry out both small and large commercial surface dressing projects for clients in this area.
Surface dressing is often referred to as 'Tar & Chip' and involves two main steps.
- The even spray application of an emulsion bituminous binder through a purpose built spray tanker onto the existing road surface
- This is followed immediately by the even application of aggregate chippings to ‘dress’ the binder.
Our Northumberland team has had many years of experience in the surface dressing industry. We offer our clients free site surveys and quotes for on all surfacing projects.
When to Surface Dress
It's best to perform surface dressing before the road surface deteriorates to the stage at which expensive major patching and/or reconstruction is required. There is also a gauge known as 'surface skidding levels' that needs to stay above the nationally accepted intervention level for the class of road in question. Please speak to a member of our Northumberland team if you wish to get your road tested for this.
