Asphalt resurfacing, sometimes called an asphalt overlay, can boost the appearance of your driveway or car park and ensure it lasts for many years.

For most traffic areas, there comes a time when repairing by filling potholes reaches its limit. This is when asphalt resurfacing should be considered. It’s a cost-effective alternative if the quality of the existing surface is still suitable.

Claremont Asphalt will assess your current surface and recommend the best approach, regardless of the size of the area.

How Does Asphalt Resurfacing Work?

Asphalt resurfacing involves the following:

  • Filling of potholes and low-lying areas with hot mix asphalt. Over time as the driveway / carpark ages potholes will form, areas will subside (rotting tree roots, collapsed soak well lids etc). Prior to resurfacing, we attend to these areas to ensure the new layer of asphalt is perfect.
  • Mechanically sweep and apply tack coat. Prior to resurfacing, we remove all loose materials by sweeping the area with a mechanical sweeper. A tack coat is a binder that ensures the bonding between the old and new asphalt layers.
  • Cutting edges to ensure a smooth transition. Asphalt is cut around drain lids and along edges, ensuring your new asphalt driveway construction is laid professionally and up to construction standards.
  • Ensuring water flows to existing drainage. Any areas collecting water are attended to and any additional drainage required is installed
