Wet Pour Repairs in Newport
We recommend that any wetpour surfacing is monitored regularly to keep an eye out for any wet pour repairs in Newport NP20 5 which might be needed. If you carry out daily or weekly checks, then you would most likely spot any damages before they became too much of a risk and a problem.
The earlier you spot any damage on the surface, the better. As more than likely it will be easier and less expensive to resolve. Leaving it a while, not only could it be a health and safety issue but could also make it a more expensive repair because it could continue to get worse.
There are many different types of issues which can happen when you have any surface. The two most common type of surfacing repairs which we carry out on wetpour are band repairs and overlays.
We can carry out repairs to playgrounds, golden mile tracks https://www.rubber-wetpour.co.uk/daily-mile/newport/ and much more.
Our team of experts are able to offer a range of repairs, please contact us to discuss your project.
Wet Pour Shrinking Edge
Wetpour is made up of rubber and rubber has properties in it which causes it to expand and shrink. The expanding and shrinkage can be increased for many reasons but the main reason is due to your climate.
Due to the expanding and shrinking, a common repair which is needed for wetpour surfacing is what we call a band repair. Many times we get customers contacting us saying that their wetpour surface is coming away from the edge and leaving a gap at the perimeter.
This can cause a trip hazard and also weeds can start growing in the gap which makes it looks less appealing. As this surface is commonly installed in facilities which children use, they can see the gap around the edge and start messing with it, causing it to get worse and become more of an issue.
Rubber crumb perimeter shrinkage is a common problem, especially in older products as it loses its elasticity over time and with the fluctuating climate of the UK it reduces around the edge.
Wet Pour Band Repair in Newport
If you’re in need of a band repair, our specialist team in Newport NP20 5 will cut back the perimeter of the damaged area and then install a new rubber surface around the perimeter. This might be confusing to understand so we tell people to imagine it like a picture frame and the band is the frame.
If you’d like to discuss this in more detail and to get an idea of how this would appear, we will be happy to go through the process with you and also send over some case studies showing our previous projects.
"I am so please with how my surface looks now, the team did a great repair for a great cost"
For this type of repair, we recommend that you choose a different colour for the perimeter than the main section of the area. This is because over time the colour of rubber granules can discolour and fade and also each batch of wetpour can be slightly different in colour.
If you have blue wetpour surfacing and the edge has shrunk, we would recommend a black or different colour perimeter repair because you are not going to be able to match the same colour as the existing.
Our team can also carry out patch repairs when fixing the edge. If you don't want a patch repair, you may be interested in the addition of graphics where the tears are https://www.rubber-wetpour.co.uk/graphics/newport/
Wet Pour Overlay
A wetpour overlay or wetpour recap is where we overlay an existing wetpour surface with a new layer and this is normally a 15mm wetpour layer.
This could be requested for areas which are looking old and tired or because the area requirements have changed. If a surface requires multiple repairs, an overlay will be the best option.
An overlay will give a completely new look to the surfacing, which is why it is popular. A recapped surface will give a facelift to an existing area. The surface is simply overlaid with a brand new safety surface for a complete transformation.
Wetpour Rip Up & Replacement
Some people choose to have their surface fully ripped up and replaced. This tends to be the most costly option due to the time and the costs involved with disposing of surfacing.
If you’ve had issues with your surface and it’s old, then you might decide that a brand new installation is the best option.
