Tarmacadam driveways, if laid properly can last for years so call Affordable Drives for advice and a quote
We are experts in installing tarmac driveways with the latest quality bitumen and making sure that the preparation of the driveway is completed before the tarmac is laid. The surface has to be dug out and a hard core base laid, leveled and compacted before it is ready. With re-surfacing the surface must be properly cleaned and any fissures repaired before the tarmac is laid.
Tarmac is a suitable material for your driveway installation. It is also commonly used for highly trafficked areas such as forecourts, car parks, school playgrounds and private roads.
Tarmacadam is considered to be a cheaper alternative than block paving or imprinted concrete. It is an extremely durable surface, and built well, will last for many years. It can also be repaired or re-surfaced if necessary. Tarmac can also have different materials and colour edgings. It is an adaptable material and can be used in a combination of other materials if desired.
A tarmac driveway and path was installed with contrasting block pave edgings for an attractive and updated look.
Tarmac was also installed on the pavement with a dropped kerb for easier access to the driveway and garage.
However, whilst large areas can be economically resurfaced the cost of using tarmac for a small driveway can be comparable to the more aesthetically pleasing block paving.
