About Asphalt Driveways
A tarmac driveway is a type of surface that is made by mixing crushed stone with bitumen, a thick, dark, and sticky liquid derived from crude oil.
This mixture is laid down on a prepared base, compacted, and then smoothed out to create a strong, durable, and smooth surface.
Tarmac driveways are known for their resilience, longevity, and low maintenance requirements, making them an increasingly popular choice for homeowners across the UK.

Environmentally Friendly Driveways
Tarmac driveways are considered to be an eco-friendly choice for a number of reasons.
Firstly, the production of tarmac involves recycling old road surfaces, which helps to reduce waste and save on raw materials.
Secondly, tarmac is permeable, allowing water to drain through it, which helps to prevent surface runoff and reduces the risk of flooding.
Finally, the dark colour of tarmac helps to retain heat, which can reduce the formation of ice during winter months and lower the need for harmful de-icing chemicals.
Installing Your Drive
Our Installation Process For Asphalt
The installation of a tarmac driveway involves several steps, which include:
Site preparation: This involves clearing the area of any debris, plants, or old paving materials, as well as excavating the ground to the required depth.
Laying the sub-base: A layer of crushed stone or aggregate is laid down and compacted to create a solid and stable foundation for the tarmac.
Laying the tarmac: The tarmac mixture is poured onto the prepared sub-base and spread evenly using specialist machinery. It is then compacted using a roller to ensure a smooth and level surface.
Edging and finishing touches: If desired, decorative edging or borders can be installed to complement the tarmac driveway. This not only enhances the appearance of the driveway, but also provides additional stability and support to the edges.
Curing and setting: After the tarmac has been laid and compacted, it needs to cure and set for a period of time before it can be used. This generally takes between 24 and 48 hours, depending on weather conditions.
Enhancing A Older Tarmac Drive
Yes, one of the great advantages of tarmac driveways is that they can be easily resurfaced if they start to show signs of wear or damage.
Resurfacing involves removing the top layer of the existing tarmac and replacing it with a new layer.
This process not only restores the driveway's appearance but also helps to extend its lifespan.
Tarmac driveways require minimal maintenance, but there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your driveway stays in excellent condition for years to come:
a. Regular cleaning: Sweeping your driveway regularly can help prevent the buildup of dirt, leaves, and other debris that could cause damage to the surface.
b. Promptly remove stains: If you notice any oil or fuel spills on your driveway, clean them up immediately using a suitable cleaning agent to prevent staining or damage to the surface.
c. Avoid using harsh chemicals: Chemicals such as de-icing salts can damage the tarmac, so try to avoid using them on your driveway. Instead, use sand or grit for traction during icy conditions.
d. Repair minor damage: If you notice any small cracks or potholes forming in your driveway, it's important to repair them promptly to prevent further damage.
