Surface Dressing

Peter Daw Surfacing Contractors recognise the increased demand for decorative finishes and functional surfaces, surface dressing has become increasingly popular and the process consists of the spraying of hot bitumen followed by a layer of chippings, which are available in coloured granite and shingled aggregates.

How is it Applied?

The hot bitumen binder is sprayed on to the cleaned and prepared road surface with our road tanker and this is applied either with the use of a hand lance or a spray bar. This process is followed by an even covering of chippings, which are either 6mm or 10mm in size, and these are applied by our mechanical chipping spreaders. Once the laying stage is complete the stone dressing is rolled with our pneumatic tyred roller.

We can offer a variety of stone chippings and colours

– Ghyll Scar Granite

– Ingleton Green

– Pink Granite

* We can supply samples of each before surfacing

Advantages of Surface Dressing

– Very cost effective

– Seals the surface and protects it from damage caused by water and sunlight.

– Maintains the existing surface from disintegration
