Can I Overlay New Tarmac On My Old Tarmac

As a tarmac company, we are often asked whether it is possible to overlay new tarmac on top of old tarmac. Yes, in most situations it is feasible to put a new layer of tarmac over an existing one.

There are a couple of things to consider before using it. First and foremost, we must ensure that the surface below is solid and level. Any fractures or unevenness will be revealed as a result of the new layer of tarmac, therefore they should be fixed ahead of time.

Second, we need to ensure that the old tarmac is clean and free from debris or dirt. Any debris on the surface, it will prevent the new tarmac from sticking.

Once we have considered these things, we are ready to start laying the new tarmac. Again, the process is relatively straightforward and can be done in a few hours.

First, we will need to clear any debris or dirt from the surface of the old tarmac. Next, we will need to roughen up the surface with a wire brush or similar. This will help the new tarmac to adhere better.

After that, we can start applying the new tarmac. We will use a tarmac roller or something similar to smooth it out. Once it is dry, we can then add any markings or lines that may be needed.

And that’s it! Laying a new layer of tarmac on top of an existing one is a relatively simple process that can save you money.
