is one of the fastest and most economical ways of sealing cracks (bitumen seals the existing cracks in the surface) reducing the likelihood of potholes forming.
Surface Dressing reduces the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays, slowing down the oxidisation process.
Surface Dressing can be applied to any class of road or footpath.
Surface Dressing improves grip (chippings provide a new, skid-resistant surface).
Surface Dressing reduces the risk of aquaplaning on roads, thereby helping to reduce the possibility of accidents.
Surface Dressing can extend the life of a road by up to 10 years.
Surface Dressing minimises the use of scarce aggregates.
Surface Dressing costs only around one-fifth of conventional resurfacing. Even the simplest and cheapest of standard resurfacing treatments is likely to cost four times the rate of surface dressing.
Surface Dressing leads to less congestion to road users because of the speed at which the works are carried out.
