How to Book Your Free Pothole Site Inspection

February 19, 2021

Potholes are a common problem in the UK, especially during the winter months. The repeated freezing and warming of temperatures is the ideal weather pattern which helps cause potholes.

Performing regular site inspections will help you identify any potential issues, and by taking action early, you will not only prolong the life of your hard-standing surfaces but save costs on larger repairs later on.

Our advice is simple when it comes to potholes: be proactive, rather than reactive.

How to identify the early signs of a pothole

  • Loose material sitting on top of the surface
  • Cracks or “crocodile skin” beginning to appear
  • Depressions or water pooling
  • Small holes due to missing material
  • Breakdown or wearing of joints and/or sealing material.


Why book a free site inspection

You have a duty of care to ensure your sites are safe, compliant and without risks to either workers or visitors. Acting as soon as issues appear will help prevent the problem from developing into a bigger concern over time. A site inspection will allow us to:

  • Inspect the failure and the surrounding area
  • Identify potential issues and highlight concerns
  • Provide expert advice on what has caused the defect and advise on the most suitable course of action.
