Prestige Civils and Sports designs, builds and re-surfaces artificial sports pitches.
Worn out carpets: Artificial grass carpets are usually guaranteed for 5 to 8 years, providing maintenance schedules are adhered to and recorded. Many pitches last a lot longer than this, the amount of use they get being a significant factor in the ageing process. However, sooner or later, your surface will start to show signs of wear, initially at the points of heaviest usage. You may find the pile wearing down, small tears in the carpet, weeds or moss starting to take hold, replacement infill isn’t doing the job and so it is time for a new surface on your Astroturf or 3G pitch.
There are a number of options that we can consider to minimise cost and improve your playing surface. A worn carpet doesn’t necessarily mean a new build pitch. And sometimes the stabilising and shock absorbing layers are in good enough condition for a replacement carpet simply to be laid on top.
Root damage: Artificial grass sports pitches should be constructed far enough away from any existing trees to avoid the risk of root damage but this is not always the case and extensive remedial works may be required.
Every re-surfacing project is unique and our solutions are individually tailored to each client so please contact us to discuss your requirements.
