Domestic Tarmac - Construction of a Tarmac Driveway
This 25 year old Tarmac Driveway needed to be completely
removed and replaced. The customer also requested an extension
of the drive onto the lawn area, pavior block edgings and an
additional drain to prevent a problem with water which had
been pooling by the front door.
A 6mm sized aggregate Tarmac was used for a smooth, durable
surface and white granite chips were rolled into the
driveway for decoration.
Tar and Chip Surface Dressing - Natural Looking Golden Gravel
For an attractive, durable and natural finish, without the
harshness of black tarmac (especially on larger areas)
surface dressing, also known as 'tar and chip' can be an
affordable alternative. Tar and chip involves the spraying
of hot bitumen, into which the desired aggregate (golden
gravel, grey granite, etc) is embedded.
The bitumen cures and can be used by vehicles within half an
hour of application and can cover either tarmac or concrete
This process gives the impression of a 'deep filled' gravel
or stone driveway, but without the problems of wheel ruts,
rain water pooling and the like.
