Tarmac Driveways in Guildford | Maintenance and Repairs from Trusted Tarmacadam Contractors

Many of our customers in the Guildford area have tarmac driveways, laid by ourselves or by other tarmacadam contractors. Pegley Groundworks Ltd, based in Wisborough Green, is well known in the commercial, industrial and civil engineering sectors for our work as road surfacing contractors. We are a trusted name for road construction and surface dressing in these fields, but domestic work holds just as much importance with our time-served team.

Cracked tarmac driveways can ruin the kerb appeal of an entire property.

Resurfacing is a relatively simple process when undertaken by professional tarmacadam contractors. It can improve the driveway surface inside a short timeframe and last for many years. Pegley Groundworks Ltd uses the same skillsets on tarmac driveways as it does with commercial and civil engineering road construction and surface dressing in and around the Guildford area.

Cleaning – Our road surfacing contractors inspect driveways for oil stains from parked cars and deal with these first. We use industrial degreasers to lift oil for the surface before starting a repair job. Next, we remove any visible weeds from between the cracks. It is important that tarmac driveways are dry prior to filling the cracks and sealing them. With a clean surface, we can deliver a repair that is guaranteed to last at what we believe to be a competitive rate.

If we were undertaking road construction or surface dressing work on a civil engineering project in Guildford, we would still need a clean, dry surface.

Patching – Next, our tarmacadam contractors patch any cracks and holes. A key consideration here is not to overfill the cracks on tarmac driveways. If we do, the repair could still be visible after we apply the sealed finishing coat. One thing we need to keep an eye on is the weather. As with road surfacing, we require a 24- to 48-hour window where the skies are clear, and forecasts aren’t predicting rain. Repairs are often a summertime vocation for our team.

Should a driveway surface in Guildford have deep cracks and holes, we can go down to the groundworks to make sure everything is in good order.

Edge Sealing – In the combined role of local road surfacing contractors and tarmacadam contractors, Pegley Groundworks Ltd seals tarmac driveways by hand. We take care to work methodically, and not to back ourselves into a corner by not planning the job properly. This means we never have to walk on tarmac or sealant that hasn’t cured. With new road construction, we recommend at least five days before exposing the surface to heavy traffic.

On resurfacing projects in Guildford, and especially in warm weather, curing times can reduce significantly, sometimes to as little as a couple of days.

We always apply a second coat of sealant to further protect the driveway. A road surfacing or surface dressing project for a commercial, industrial or civil engineering client would receive the same care but, with domestic work, it is more important than ever to leave behind a repair that will last for years.
