Looking for a new driveway?
Tarmac is one of the most popular driveway materials as it is an attractive, robust and economical option, which is suitable for a range of period and modern properties.
Additionally, the installation process for tarmac driveways is inexpensive as it takes much less time to install than other materials and tarmac can usually be laid directly onto any existing surface whereas the other materials require a full depth bedding layer before installation can even start.
For decades, we have been constructing attractive driveways so you can count on our years of experience to deliver a high-quality driveway which will stand the test of time and enhance the value and visual appeal of your home.
To give your driveway a truly bespoke finish, we can provide tarmac in a variety of colours with an array of stone edgings.
What is Tarmac?
Tarmac is formed of bitumen which is laid whilst it is hot and flexible, which can then be levelled and compacted to fit into your driveway’s shape and gradient. Then, the tarmac is left to cool and solidify as the particles bind together to create a durable and appealing surface.
Designed to withstand a wide range of climatic conditions, our tarmac driveways can deliver years of outstanding longevity, without needing constant maintenance.
Whether you live in an area suffering from heavy rainfall or an extremely cold or hot environment, tarmac is a reliable surface material that can withstand all severe weather conditions.
How smooth are tarmac driveways?
As a smoother alternative to a concrete driveway, tarmac driveways are a blend of minerals and bitumen.
This smoothness allows you to easily drive across your driveway, as well as making walking across the surface much safer and easier.
Thanks to their smooth finish, tarmac driveways help to provide skid resistance, which can be a significant problem with concrete driveways.
This results in less splash back and reduced accumulation of snow and ice.
As tarmac driveways are very smooth, this means that cracks are less likely to form that can be filled when it rains and deepen when water freezes and thaws from these cracks.
How durable are tarmac driveways?
Do you have a big family with lots of cars or is there lots of traffic coming in and out of your driveway daily (e.g. if you run a business from your own home)? If so, you’re going to need a driveway that will not get damaged or crack under pressure.
Tarmac driveways can easily withstand heavy loads, such as large cars and trucks, ensuring that your driveway stands the test of time.
Additionally, tarmac driveways require minimal maintenance over time as tarmac is more effective at preventing weeds growing through your driveway compared to paving stones, ensuring your tarmac driveway can retain its attractive appearance over time.
