WHY CHOOSE US?
If you are looking for a slightly more durable treatment, then we will undertake micro-surfacing. This treatment includes placing a thin layer on a new surface. This typically takes longer for us to cover the chosen area than with surface dressing but is usually used when roads see more foot traffic and if roads are needing to be levelled off. A thin layer of the surface will be placed over an existing surface to protect it. This will be made up of a mix of bitumen and stones and spread using specialist machines, meaning this is a substantial treatment for roadworks in Surrey.
One of the most basic roadworks in Surrey that we provide is joint and crack sealing. This is necessary to stop water from perforating into the underlaying surface. In some instances, it is best to repair joints and cracks, especially on concrete roads where the joints between sections have become expansive. Most commonly, this style of treatment is completed to restore an even surface. Sealing these joints is crucial to avoid water getting through the cracks, water penetrating the surface can cause a detrimental impact in the winter months, especially if the water then freezes, which can cause the surface to crack further.
If the surface of the road is past repair, then machine resurfacing may be the most reliable and effective option. The worn-out layer of the surface will be removed and a new layer will be laid in its replacement. When a surface is extremely damaged and past the stage of repair, then resurfacing will be required. This is a common option for areas that have heavy traffic. Resurfacing a road surface is, although a slower process, typically is one of the most durable treatments for roadworks in Surrey. When completing a full resurface we will be required to have all manholes adjusted and replaced, if required. Depending on the condition of the road surface, the road may require up to two separate layers of surface. This is a more durable and substantial treatment.
Depending on the size of the road, diversions may be required whilst these roadworks are completed in Surrey. If the roads are not entirely closed and diversions are put in place, then traffic control may be required. When completing roadworks in Surrey, we will erect warning signs advising drivers of any road closures or partial closures. In areas that are known for heavy traffic, then works will typically be completed in the evening or at night. This minimises disruptions to road users. Although, for those that live close to these busy roads, disruptions may be impossible to avoid.
