Tarmac Pothole Repairs, Resurfacing & Road Repair

We can quickly restore your road and car park surfaces to full strength. 

Our Pothole Repair and Road Resurfacing Services

The best way to ensure pothole repair costs do not spiral out of control is by reacting quickly. Freezing water during the winter speeds up the damage of your road, car park or footpath, so getting it repaired at the earliest stage will reduce the chances of needing to fully resurface the area. 

By carrying out pothole repairs quickly when they are just cracks, you can prevent large potholes from forming and turning into huge surface depressions. Our pothole repair services are extremely great value for money.

Our services include the following:

What is Road Resurfacing?

If the surface or subsurface layers of the road have deteriorated to the extent where there are deep cracks and potholes, the road will need repairing. 

Resurfacing an existing road is a cost-effective way to restore a road rather than digging the entire surface up to put a new road down. It restores the appearance and colour of your existing tarmac and extends the lifespan significantly. Ensure your road is safe for all users to prevent accidents and vehicle damage as a result of cracks and potholes.

What are Potholes?

Potholes are sections of a road where the surface develops cracks and breaks away due to repeated traffic passing over it. This creates a hole with rough vertical edges. Initially starting as small cracks, potholes can grow rapidly, expanding from just a few centimetres to over a metre wide and more than ten centimetres deep if left unfixed. 

Are Potholes Dangerous?

Potholes can cause serious accidents if they are not repaired. They can damage a car’s tyres, wheels or axles but the biggest risk is to cyclists and motorcyclists as their tires can get caught, causing them to fall off. In the UK there have been hundreds of serious injuries and fatalities as a result of potholes.  

What Causes Potholes and Cracks?

Even though tarmac and asphalt is a very hard wearing surface, it will eventually wear down and need repairing. There are 5 stages of pothole formation, which are:

  1. Wear to road surface: Years of constant usage can cause small surface cracks to form, which can expand over time. 
  2. Water enters the cracks: The surface deteriorates further as rain and moisture seeps down into the surface, soaking the base layers and soil below. 
  3. Traffic breaks up the surface: As vehicles continue to drive over the road, small pieces of tarmac or asphalt get dislodged, starting a pothole. Water from traffic splashes into the layers beneath the road, carrying dirt particles with it. This dirt weakens the layers under the road, making the pavement weaker and causing more flexing when cars pass over it.
  4. Freeze-thaw cycles speed up the problem: The pothole gets larger and deeper during winter as water in the road freezes and expands, opening up cracks and breaking the surface around it. 
  5. Standing water deepens potholes: Following rain, water pools in the pothole. As cars drive over them, the water washes away more material from the pothole, causing the pothole to grow bigger and deeper at a rapid rate.
