Tarmac driveway surfacing

Thinking of installing a tarmac driveway? You’ve come to the right place!

Tarmac is traditionally the go-to surface for driveways because it’s relatively low-cost and requires little maintenance. It offers the benefit of being able to drive or walk onto the surface within a couple of hours of completion. Although it’s not as high-performance or as aesthetically-pleasing as ​resin​, tarmac driveways still have their place in the modern world.

Tarmac is weather-resistant and inherently porous to allow water drainage. It can sustain heavy loads and should remain pristine for at least 5 years, provided it's properly maintained.

Installing tarmac driveways

Tarmac surfacing is a straightforward process that happens in three stages. You can normally lay a tarmac driveway within a single day, depending on the condition of the existing surface.

  1. Sub-base – We first excavate and lay an “803” sub-base (granular material produced from concrete, asphalt and aggregate) that is raked in and compacted with a roller.
  2. Base coating – A layer of bigger aggregate is added and compacted.
  3. ​Top coating – The final stage is the addition of smaller, smoother aggregate. Thesurface is compacted a final time for a super smooth finish.

We can beautify your ​tarmac ​driveway even further by adding paving and pretty edges to delineate and create a pleasing contrast.
