Tayside Contracts undertakes a variety of surfacing projects including all types of road and footway renewals and construction, overlays, thin surfacing, patching works and small reinstatements for utilities, developers and private customers.
Tayside Contracts provides surfacing services with a range of certified materials including Hot Rolled Asphalt (HRA) Asphalt Concrete (AC) and Thin Surface Course systems (BBTM).
Tayside Contracts provides a full end to end delivery solution which can include the following;
Our range of proprietary asphalt products is developed and manufactured in-house at our Collace Quarry. Tayside Contracts also provides certified recycled material solutions, including both processing of road waste, and production of hot and cold laid premium surfacing products.
Tayside Contracts operate a fleet of specialist equipment to undertake surfacing works, including a range of asphalt pavers capable of machine laying surfaces from 1m to 8m wide. Thanks to our plant and workforce capability, Tayside Contracts can also operate echelon paving techniques to lay surface lanes to greater continuous widths where required. Tayside Contracts also provides bond coat spraying and material haulage services.
Suitable to manage minor defects within footway and road surfaces where full reconstruction of the surface may not be required. Patching remains to be a cost-effective solution to prolong the lifespan of existing surfaces. This process is superior to “splodge” patching as the defect and surrounding material is removed to create a robust joint with the existing surface.
Surface dressing is a cost-effective process where hot bitumen emulsion is sprayed onto the road surface followed by a thin layer of hard aggregate chips, to provide a new surface course.
This dressing will seal the existing road surface, improving road texture (grip) for road users. As the process requires the aggregate to be embedded into the existing surface it can only be carried out during warmer months.
Surface dressing operations
Typically used on asphalt footways, slurry surfacing is used to seal and prolong the lifespan of the surface. Slurry is comprised of fine aggregate mixed with a bitumen emulsion, which is spread evenly and thinly across the surface.
Slurry surfacing does not provide any structural benefits and is not suitable for high stress areas.
