Calladine's specialise in Surface Dressing, also known as Tar
The road to be surfaced to be dressed has to be prepared, so
things like pot holes, cracks and road edge breakup have to
be repaired. We also have to protect any drains or
inspection covers that maybe in the existing road.
Calladine's then with our bitumen tanker spray the hot
bitumen onto the prepared road surface. This is then
followed by our chip spreader that finishes the surface of
the road. The chips can be any hard wearing product, such as
washed gravel, right through to granite. The surface is then
rolled with a road roller.
The bitumen locks the chippings and seals the road to
prevent water getting into the foundation of the road.
Surface dressing also restores the skid resistance, and
surface drainage of the road, and enhances its appearance.
The Surface dressing method is very widely used, as it is a
low cost effective method of road maintenance.
