Surface dressing is the most cost effective road surface treatment, suitable for trunk roads and main highways as well as narrow lanes and footpaths.
Surface Dressing extends the life of the road surface, increases skid resistance and seals the surface to stop water ingress, protecting it from damage caused by severe winter weather.
