You May Not Have to Replace your Tarmac!
Also if you are just interested in buying the sealer please call Ciaran at 087-6236139
Autovac offers a complete Driveway cleaning and sealing service using specialized equipment for cleaning your driveways which don't damage the surface of your driveways.
Cracks and potholes do not necessarily mean that you need a completely new driveway. Getting a new driveway costs thousands of euro's, the driveway restoration service we provide is the more economical solution with the same results and away less hassle. Restoration fills potholes with hot asphalt – not cold fill that rapidly decays. Using state-of-the-art infra-red equipment, the hot asphalt is then melted along the edges, forming a direct seal with the driveway. Best yet – your driveway will be ready for traffic within 24 hours.
This service is not just for driveways it is also applicable to car parks, tennis courts (we can seal your tennis court any colour you wish). We also apply a seal coat to help protect driveways against deterioration. We recommend resealing the driveway at least every two years to replenish asphalt, which can become aged and weathered. Restore yours today!
1. Tarmacadam Cleaning
This is the most important part of the process if you don't work on a clean surface there is little point in sealing the surface. You would not polish a floor without washing it,this is the same principle.With our Mosamtic surface cleaner Autovac can clean any surface evenly leaving no lines like other power washers. Look at the effect the Mosmatic has on the surface below........
2. Tarmacadam Infra-red Repairs
Because it is made from oil, asphalt has skyrocketed in cost. Infra-red Repairs provides the best solution to lower the cost of pavement repair. Infra-red offers a faster “open to traffic” timeline, lower materials cost and seamless repair—no cutting means no seams in a patch for water to penetrate and cause future problems.
The INFRA-RED process heats the asphalt surface to a temperature that allows for a smooth and level repair to road surface defects (such as potholes or temporary filled repairs). Our heaters have the capability of evenly raising the temperature of the repair area without burning and destroying the pavement.
In about 7 to 10 minutes of heating the affected area under the infra-red rays, the asphalt softens without burning, allowing it to be raked.A highly specialized formula is sprayed on the old asphalt & raked in to restore lost fine oils that are present in new asphalt. Virgin asphalt is added, if necessary, to restore proper level, grade and/or slope. The patch is then compacted and fused into the still-solid area just outside the affected area that results in a seamless patch. Besides yielding a cosmetically pleasing and smooth driveway surface, the following benefits are obtained:
- Creates a truly seamless patch that will not allow water to infiltrate to the sub-base as seams “open” with age.
- Can be performed 24 hours/day, 7 days a week, we can have hot asphalt available even when the plants aren’t open.
- Can be opened to traffic in 1-2 hours or less in most cases (as soon as the asphalt cools to below 150 degrees)
3. Tarmacadam Coating
We can coat any type of driveway/yard for you from tarmac to concrete. We provide extensive seals for you to choose from, giving you the best finish possible. Seal coat brings back the dark black colour of the original pavement. Asphalt pavement begins to deteriorate almost as soon as it is installed. As the pavement is exposed to oxygen, the asphalt oxidizes. This oxidization results in a brittle surface that eventually cracks. Seal coat protects the surface and fills surface voids, reducing pavement’s exposure to oxygen and water and extending pavement life.
By breaking down the links between the carbon bonds in the asphalt, ultraviolet rays cause pavement to deteriorate and crumble. Regularly applied seal coat helps to prevent ultraviolet rays from penetrating the pavement.This is especially important on driveways where cars are parked or worked on. Oil and gasoline soften asphalt. By filling surface voids, seal coat also reduces the depth to which oil or gas can penetrate the pavement. Seal coated pavement is also easier to clean and maintain. Because seal coat fills surface voids, a seal coated surface is much smoother. And a smoother surface is easier to sweep, shovel, and wash.
