Tarmac - Call 01384 931 027

Tarmac is very durable and matched with a block paved border creates a very stylish look for your new drive. Tarmac driveways are very popular, being one of the most cost effective driveway surfaces to install. Tarmac takes less time to lay meaning you could have a new drive completed in just few days.

Tarmac Driveways offer a quick low maintenance way to enhance your home without compromising on style.Tarmac is laid as a hot liquid, then once it is applied it must be allowed to cool, which lets the particles bind together. One of the main benefits of tarmac driveways is that they can be laid directly onto an existing surface, something which other materials cannot do. Other surfaces need a full depth bedding layer to be put down first, and only then can the new driveway surface be laid.

As well as being easy to install, once tarmac has cooled down and the particles have bound together it becomes an incredibly strong and resilient surface. It can hold the weight of heavy vehicles easily, where as other surfaces may break or become displaced.

Important: We install the Tarmac ourselves and do not use a third party contractor.
