Spennymoor Surface Dressing
Resurface a road with Tar & Chip in Spennymoor DL16
Tarmacadams Surfacing Ltd specialises in road surface dressing for the Spennymoor 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 Spennymoor commercial use, but is also suitable for private roads, farm tracks and paths.
How is Tar & Chip Surface Dressing Applied?
First, the Spennymoor 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.
Why use Tar & Chip for Surface Dressing in Spennymoor?
Road surface dressing is now a long established road maintenance technique for repairing Spennymoor private roads, domestic and commercial roads, as it provides the following benefits:
- Provides a weatherproof seal to the surface of the footpath or carriageway
- Enhances skid resistance of the surface by creating texture and depth
- Avoids water ingress causing damage to the underlying foundations
- Enhances the surface appearance using naturally-coloured aggregates

FAQs for Surface Dressing
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Surface dressing involves treating Spennymoor roads which are in relatively good condition with preventative maintenance treatments to maintain their good condition. Resurfacing is a more extensive structural maintenance treatment which involves removing up to 300mm of a worn out road surface and replacing it with new material
Surface dressing is a maintenance and prevention treatment that helps prolong the life of the surface. Surface dressing will re-seal and waterproof a road, whilst also increasing tyre grip to improve braking and overall safety.
Surface dressing must be carried out when the road is dry. The process is relatively quick, with busy sites taking less than a day to complete and quieter roads needing only 1 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the road.
Top layers of roads generally need resurfacing or surface dressing every 10-15 years. Full road tarmac replacement is often only required after a number of decades.
