Over time the surface of a tarmac driveway will fade, become more brittle and can crack in places but Driveway Cleaning can help this.
This is due to use, the sun’s ultraviolet light and the tendency for natural resins in the tarmac to dry out.
It can however be restored back to a more acceptable and consistent colour by applying tarmac restorer.
Tarmac restorer is also known as tarmac paint or tarmac sealer and although it can offer some protection to the surface of your tarmac driveway, its main benefit to most householders is that the driveway will look better.
Before tarmac restorer is applied, your driveway should be completely clear of moss, weeds and algae.
Cracks in the surface of your tarmac driveway should be sealed with bitumen paint and any pot holes filled with fresh tarmac.
Tarmac restorer is applied with a roller and it soaks into the tarmac surface to replace lost resins, making the surface water resistant again.
