Case Studies

Tarmac repairs

We come across many sites where small repairs are required or the tarmac is starting to fret and starting to cause pot holes.

Through years of experience in refurbishing tennis courts we have developed products for trafficked areas like car parks to stop further decay and bring a new lease of life to the surface adding years to the service life. Repairing pot holes and completely coating the old tarmac with one of our high wear products, can be done at a fraction of the cost of resurfacing. This can save massive amounts of money to help budgeting and reduce potential claims associated with uneven surfaces.

Internal markings

All floors have different characteristics and all businesses have different equipment, traffic movements and operational requirements that have to be evaluated when considering floor coatings and line markings.

At Adhere we understand this and with our many years of experience we are able to use the best products to meet our customers needs. The pictures below show a steel works in stoke where the surface was very old, pitted and dirty. Unlike many companies we are able to offer a cost effective solution that didn’t require a new floor. We started as always by preparing the surface, we have a number of different machines but on this occasion used a specialist grinder that nibbles at the polished stone in the concrete to give a great key for any coating. After this we applied a 2k primer followed by a hard wearing easy clean 2k gloss finish paint.

The result was highly visible hard wearing and easy to keep clean lines.

Tennis court refurbishment

Prevention is better than cure and simple moss killing and jet washing of open texture tennis court tarmac can prolong the life of the surface for years.

However it’s not always the case that we are asked to spray nice clean surfaces. So when the courts are in different states of erosion we have a number of systems to bring them back to life. If you have read other articles on this site you will appreciate that adhere strive to complete thorough Preperation to all our contracts so to start with we jetwash to remove all the dirt trapped between the stones. At this point and fretting or loose stones will be exposed. We can then apply either of our court binders to hold the substrate together. With courts that have been left too long we are able to make patch repairs that will be hardly noticed. We then double coat with out polyurethane court glue. This bonds the substrate and gives the ultimate background for either of our standard court paint or high traffic coating for areas like playgrounds or Muga’s.

The result is a surface that is strong enough to be jet washed year after year to maintain its longevity.
