Dorset Tarmac Driveway Repairs
Many automotive oils, such as petrol, diesel or even brake fluid, can ‘dissolve’ the binder of tarmac and there’s no way of ‘re-sticking’ the aggregate back together. Further, the contaminating oil will seep and spread, degrading all the tarmac that it contacts.
Given a few days, a petrol leak will ‘eat’ its way through a 75mm thick tarmac driveway; a screwdriver or stiletto heel will easily penetrate the previously ‘set’ surfacing and before long, the now unbound aggregate will begin to be scattered everywhere. And once a hole appears in a tarmac surface, it just gets bigger and bigger as the edges ‘crumble’.
How do we fix damaged tarmac in Dorset?
Contaminated material in the damaged driveway is removed by cutting out the affected area to at least 100mm back from the contamination. A power saw, floor saw, angle grinder or even a hammer and bolster can be used to cut out the tarmac in a neat and tidy fashion, preferably a rectangle or octagon.
The contaminated tarmac MUST be dug out, and the surrounding material excavated back to the cut line. This kind of Dorset Tarmac repair will be visible to begin with, but will fade into the existing surface appearance over time.
