Due to New Zealand's tectonic movements and sub-tropical weather it is important to have a road surface that can flex without cracking. Chipseal is the most flexible road surface available and alongside a well planned and executed base course provides for superior waterproofing; the most important factor for road performance.
Chipseal is safer than all alternatives boasting the best surface texture depth and surface drainage characteristics as a result.
The Emulsion (Glue) which we use in our chip-seal not only provides significant reductions to carbon emissions but also boasts significant improvements to flexibility, chip retention and performance in varying temperatures.
As a guide Chipseal is generally 1/4 the cost of Asphalt and 1/5 the cost of concrete. It can be constructed in a matter of hours and be ready for traffic immediately.
Did you know that there are colour requirements for driveways under your resource consent? We can confirm that our Chipseal meets resource consent requirements for peace of mind.
It’s All in the Details
Pot holes destroying your day?
Cracking causing your driveway or private road to deteriorate?
The earlier you act the more you save, what starts as a crack will become a pot hole that will continue to grow and potentially require major repair!
The Road Rapter team use high quality bitumen emulsions (glue) that are water based allowing us to ensure cracks are sealed deep into the road surface. This helps hold together cracks at their source and not just at the surface providing a better repair.
Road Rapter use a proven 4 step process to repair your potholes:
1. We cut around the potholes ensuring we remove all loose material
2. Next we prime and waterproof the bottom of the pothole which helps glue the repair in
3. Fill the pothole with our Premium Road Rapter Asphalt
4. Finally Crack sealing around the surface edges to prevent water re-penetrating the repair.
So don’t buy a 4 wheel drive, let us fix your drive.
