Why A Tarmac DRIVEWAY?
With the harsh weather conditions in the UK, it’s not surprising that tarmac drives and paths are a popular choice.
From the wet and cold winters with snow and ice to hot summers, these drives are so durable that they remain un-affected when installed correctly, providing a long lasting, easy to maintain drive.
Depending on weather conditions, a driveway can take two to six days to fully harden to an extent to allow vehicles to be parked, however once hardened the tarmac can withstand heavier loads than concrete bases without subsidence.
When laid correctly and with care your tarmac drive will last a minimum of fifteen years with minimal ongoing maintenance.
This is due to the preparation and groundwork prior to laying the Tarmac with varying sub-base depths depending upon the condition of the ground below.
Once the preparation is completed we lay the first layer of tarmac which is the binding course followed by the surface course which has the smooth finish.
