Lack of maintenance reduces life expectancy of concrete and asphalt. This could lead to unsightly and uneven surfaces, with increased resurfacing costs, risk of personal injury and damage to vehicles & property. Don't settle for these issues, let us take care of your surface maintenance. Call Murray Andrews today on 01403 891 572.
Cracks and Joint repairs - crack sealing and joint repair systems are essential to:
- Reduce water ingress into the pavement surface and sub-surface layers
- Reduce pavement damage by hydraulic pumping and freeze/thaw action
- Reduce erosion by tyre interaction with a damaged surface or open joint
- Reinstate the road surface to its original profile
- Maintain skid resistance and texture depth.
Overband - simple overbanding systems for repairing joint or crack widths up to 5mm wide, with a finished bandwidth <40mm.
Fill and overband - fill and overband systems are tested and approved for joints and cracks up to 40mm wide including; single part products with a single fill.
Inlaid single or multiple cracks - inlaid systems are approved for single and multiple cracks. They are installed by planing out a required recess depending on the system’s specification. The product is then used to fill the recess flush to the surface and dressed with high PSV aggregate to provide texture depth and skid resistance.
Murray Andrews Ltd follows the RSTA guidelines on the code of practice (2013) on these systems to assist procurers and installers on how to obtain high quality installations. This new guide represents best industry practice for the selection and application of crack sealing and joint repair systems to maximise their performance and durability. To ensure client-side acceptance it has also been peer reviewed by the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport (ADEPT).
Sawcut and Seal - in areas where temperature fluctuations are very severe, the saw and seal method
is ideal for increasing the longevity of asphalt pavement. By installing control
joints in the new pavement and sealing the joints, the expansion and contraction
process tends to cause many less random cracks in the pavement. (This is like
installing control joints in concrete.)
Studies have shown the sawcut and seal method to be effective in significantly reducing pavement maintenance costs in the long run.
Asphalt - asphalt paving is an option for our Surface Maintenance service. We specialise in paving new asphalt and resurfacing existing asphalt carparks and private roads. We perform small asphalt paving jobs and large commercial asphalt paving projects, from shopping centres, docks, arenas to major distribution centres. We are equipped to complete your asphalt paving project regardless of its size.
Pot hole and Concrete repairs – the cost of repairing potholes has been steadily growing as recent harsh winters
ravage roads and decades of government underfunding leave councils barely able
to cope, according to the Local Government Association (LGA), which represents
more than 370 councils in England and Wales. The total spending has risen from
£9.8bn in 2012 to £11.8bn last year, statistics from the Asphalt Industry
Alliance show. This means at the current rate of growth, pothole repairs will
cost £14bn by around 2019 – that's more than three times the councils' entire
annual revenue spending on highways and transport, which sits at £4.4bn.
Murray Andrews are in constant communication with suppliers to fulfil the ever-growing cost and time restraints our clients are implementing, enabling us to work together to find the best solution on a project by project basis.
