Carriageway surface dressing
Surface dressing is a fast, sustainable and cost-effective maintenance treatment that prolongs the life of a road surface.
We lay a thin layer over the top of the existing road surface to seal and protect it, restoring skid resistance and preventing water getting in.
We do patch repairs to fix defects which the surface dressing won’t be able to fix. This is usually done 6 months before the main dressing works
We cover the road with hot bitumen then chippings are rolled in. A few days following the surface dressing, we sweep the road to remove loose chippings.
During this period, we ask customers to drive at 20mph to prevent damage to their vehicles. After we replace all the road markings, the temporary road signs will be removed.
