Tarmac And Asphalt Road Surfacing
There are several road surfacing solutions to choose from, each depending on your specifications. At RM Kennedy & Sons, we can advise you on the appropriate materials. The most popular are tarmac and asphalt, which we combine to produce a hard-wearing and durable road surface. This can be amended to meet any particular requirements you might have.
Potholes are not only a driving hazard, but the longer you leave them, the worse they will get. At RM Kennedy & Sons, we can empty, refill, and smooth out potholes quickly and efficiently. We ensure that our replacement tarmac and asphalt matches the rest of the road surface. This way, the structural integrity of the road isn't compromised.
Wear and tear affect all roads, no matter how much traffic they see. The deterioration often starts at the edges of the road and is an early indicator that the road needs resurfacing. This involves applying a new layer of tarmac and asphalt, rolling it tight to the original surface. It also repairs the damage to the road’s edges.
Surface dressing involves spraying the road surface with a coat of hot bitumen and applying a layer of stone chippings. This chippings are then rolled into the binding bitumen to form an additional protective later. This serves several purposes: it waterproofs the surface, reduces the risk of skidding, and prevents damage to the road's foundations.
More Services That We Provide
One of our most popular road surfacing solutions is anti-skid surfacing. This is used predominately in built-up areas, where pedestrian safety is paramount. This high-friction surfacing is applied on the approach to junctions, roundabouts, and pedestrian crossings. It improves the grip of wheels on the road and reduces the opportunity for skidding when applying the brakes.View Gallery
If you're embarking on a lengthy process of road surfacing, it's well worth considering road planing. This makes larger road surfacing projects more sustainable and, ultimately, more cost effective. It involves reusing bits of the old tarmac and asphalt from the current road. This is melted it down into fresh material, just as hard-wearing as the stuff it's replacing.View Gallery
