Durham Surface Dressing

Resurface a road with Tar & Chip in Durham DH1

Tarmacadams Surfacing Ltd specialises in road surface dressing for the Durham area, also known as 'Tar & Chip'. Using tar and chipping is a great way to resurface a road as it has a much more natural look than asphalt, meaning it integrates better into natural surroundings.

Tar & chip surface dressing is quite popular for large scale Durham commercial use, but is also suitable for private roads, farm tracks and paths.

How is Tar & Chip Surface Dressing Applied?

First, the Durham road to be surfaced to be dressed has to be prepared, so things like pot holes, cracks and road edge breakup need repairs. We also have to protect any drains or inspection covers that may be in the existing road.

Once the surface is prepared, an application of hot bitumen is laid on the surface. The road surface is then layered with stone chippings that are rolled on the bitumen to create a water-resistant layer.
