Tarmac Restorer Range & Application Guidance

Tarmac Restorers are a great way of sprucing up driveways and patios to look like new. As opposed to Tarmac Asphalt Repair, Tarmac or Tarmacadam Restorers, are not intended to strengthen or repair damaged surfaces. Although some restorers are capable of repairing small areas of damage, their main purpose is to cover and hide repairs, spilled paint, line marking or even some oil stains. Using a tarmac restorer is often the preferred option to resurfacing. It saves you money whilst also protecting and extending the life of your driveway or patio.

What Is The Best Tarmac Restorer To Use?

There are many tarmac restorers and driveway paints on the market, but we recommend Rust-Oleum Asphalt Restorer. This is a single application, top quality bitumen, with flow agents and high grade filler that provides an ‘as new’ appearance. This tarmac restorer paint masks old line markings and repairs, as well as hiding ingrained dust from building works. Rust-Oleum Asphalt Restorer will also help to cover oil stains in some circumstances. Furthermore, you can mix Rustoleum Asphalt Restorer with dry sand, to form a stiff mortar. You can then use this to fill in small pits and fissures.

If you are looking for an alternative to products such as Everbuild Tarmac Restorer or Adseal Tarmac Restorer, we highly recommend trying Rustoleum Asphalt Restorer to rejuvenate asphalt, tarmac, black top and concrete drives.

What If There is Damage To My Driveway or Path?

Any damage to surfaces will need repairing and cleaning before applying Rust-Oleum Asphalt Restorer. Centrecoat GS36 Fungicidal Wash is perfect for removing moss and mould from your driveway. For filling wide cracks or larger areas of damage such as potholes, Rust-Oleum Asphalt Repair 5410 is the perfect solution.

Potholes can form on main roads, cycle paths, pavements, car parks or even driveways. The cause is generally a mix of the British weather and the sheer weight of traffic. Rainwater finds its way under the surface, where it can then expand and contract as the temperature changes. This eventually leads to a cavity in the tarmac. The cavity soon gives way under the weight of traffic, leaving you with a rather dangerous and ugly hole in your driveway. Not only are potholes unsightly, but they can actually end up costing you a lot of money – or worse.

Important Points To Bear In Mind

This article is to help you to repair and restore your driveway, patio or path. You can also use as a guide if you own a private car park. However, it is important to note that you should not try to repair potholes on public roads or pathways yourself. You must have permission to do this, and this is normally the responsibility of the local council.

If you try to fix a pothole on a public road without permission, you could face a fine or even risk finding yourself liable for any problems or accidents that may occur as a result. You may recall Rod Stewart was made aware of this after he was seen repairing a number of holes on a road near his home. You can read the report on the BBC News Web Site.

Therefore, before you attempt any repairs, we strongly recommend that you check you have the required permission from the landowner before you begin.
