Many homeowners and owners of commercial businesses have tarmac driveways and car parking areas that looked great when the tarmac was first laid, but have deteriorated over the years. Although tarmac is a very hard wearing material, over time it will deteriorate with general ‘wear and tear’ and with constant exposure to sunlight. This can lead to the surface drying out and cracks and holes appearing over time.
Why you may need a tarmac repair?
A tarmac repair is often required when the surface starts to ‘crack up’ and pot holes may start to appear. This can happen if the tarmac is left too long prior to any tarmac repair being carried out. In most instances the tarmac becomes damaged in a few areas only.
There is absolutely no need to replace the whole tarmac surface. You can coat the area with Tarmaseal™ tarmac restorer to make the tarmac look like new.
Tarmac crack repairs and repairing pot holes
A tarmac repair should be carried out once the tarmac has been pressure cleaned and given time to dry. Any tarmac repair to small cracks and holes can be undertaken with a crack repair compound from Smartseal.
Tarmac repairs to pot holes and other surface depressions take a bit more time and require a bit more preparation. If repairing pot holes, you will need some good quality cold-laid tarmac to hand. A ‘pot hole’ just needs to be filled in and smoothed over. This can be done with cold-lay tarmac repair and left to dry out.
Most of the roads in the UK are also constructed using tarmac and asphalt and many are in urgent need of repair. With consecutive very cold, frosty winters the tarmac on the roads has deteriorated much faster than would normally be expected. Many of the resulting thousands of ‘pot holes’ can easily be repaired. This can save a lot of money and reduce the need to re-surface tarmac roads at considerable expense.
Our tarmac repair products can be used to improve the look and appearance of most tarmac surfaces. Tarmac driveways, car parks, tennis courts and school playgrounds are just examples of where tarmac repairs are often carried out.
