What Is A Surface Dressing?
Surface dressings are used to repair worn and badly weathered roads and prevent them from falling into further disrepair. Surface dressing is often used as a preventative measure and is often employed to revive a road in the first instance before more expensive and potentially disruptive resurfacing is considered.
Whilst many materials like asphalt (mastic and regular) or tarmac are long-lasting and durable, there will be inevitable damages over time such as cracks and chips. Applying quality surface dressings work in two ways by filling the pre-existing damage whilst also resealing the worn surface to protect it from further problems such as weathering.
