We undertake both commercial and private projects, no matter how big or small.
What causes tarmac erosion and leads to pot holes?
Although a very durable and extreme temperature resilient material, tarmac can deteriorate over the years, and – as a consequence – begin to exhibit marks of typical wear and tear. The main causes of deterioration of tarmac being fatigue from traffic, water and UV light, damages occur more often during frosty winters due to often temperature changes reflected in expands and contractions of the material. Water penetrating the hair cracks and then freezing accelerates the deterioration process even more, eroding big pieces of the tarmacadam surface.
When do I need a tarmac repair?
Reacting fast is key as freezing water in the winter months only causes further damage. Quick fix will eliminate the need to completely re-surface the uppermost tarmac layer and therefore significantly reduce the cost of the entire repair.
Without reactive repairs carried out, initially only hair tarmac cracks will over time begin to turn into severe surface depressions and pot holes. As tarmac pot holes usually make up only a percentage of the total tarmac surface, in most cases pothole patching is a cost-effective solution to the problem, without the necessity of time-consuming and much more expensive re-surfacing.
