Dawsongroup emc: Getting You Ready for Surface Dressing Season
Surface dressing season is in sight and as soon as that weather window of opportunity arrives, local authorities and surface dressing contractors will need to be ready to spring into action. After all, it is one of the busiest times of year for highway repairs.
What Is Surface Dressing?
Surface dressing is a vital part of highway maintenance. Not only does it guarantee the best road surfaces for vehicles, but it also prolongs the life of the road too.
Surface dressing involves spraying bitumen binder on a clean, dry road surface. Stone chippings are then spread over the top and the surface is rolled to embed these small stones. This process seals and waterproofs the road to improve braking and increase safety for drivers.
Why Is It Carried Out?
Over time, road conditions deteriorate due to wear and tear from heavy traffic. Repairing these issues by resurfacing the road is vital and not only improves driver safety, but also prevents more major issues, like potholes, developing.
The benefits are plenty – from improving skid resistance and grip, to smoothing roads and making them waterproof. Surface dressing is a quick, cost-effective way to maintain good quality roads, and extends the life of that stretch of highway by at least 10 years.
