Why Choose A Tarmac Driveway?

When you begin thinking about a new driveway, you’ll begin to realise that you have many more options than you might have thought. Tarmac is one of your options, and for many people, it’s the best option. It has a number of advantages that many Derby homeowners find appealing.

  • Cost – tarmac is one of the lower cost options for driveways. It’s one of the most affordable
  • Appearance – tarmac will give a classic, clean look to your driveway. It’s suitable for almost every style of home. It can give a traditional style, or it can be laid with a more modern design
  • Maintenance – tarmac is very low maintenance, and the cost of any maintenance is very low
  • Resistance – tarmac is resistant to staining. It’s also resistant to weather damage
  • Durability – tarmac is very durable, and as long as the proper maintenance is carried out, it can last for more than 15 years
  • Value – tarmac is a cost effective way of adding to the resale value of your property

Tarmac Maintenance

Once we have installed a tarmac driveway to your Derby property, we can advise you on how to care and maintain it. We recommend keeping vehicle off the tarmac for a few days. If the tarmac hasn’t properly hardened and set, but has been driven on, you will see the indentations from the vehicle. You will usually be able to walk on your new driveway almost immediately.

We would recommend applying a specialised sealant to the tarmac after it has been installed for about a year. This specialised sealant can help to increase the longevity of your driveway. Basically, if you take good care of it, it can last a lifetime. It is possible for tarmac to appear scuffed, if you turn the wheels of a stopped car for example. However, if you take care to allow your tarmac driveway to properly set, then this won’t be an issue.
Heavy items can cause indentations on soft tarmac. Hot weather and climates can cause the tarmac to soften, but this isn’t usually a problem in Derby, or the rest of the UK. If you do notice your tarmac softening from heat, you can hose it with cold water, which will temporarily harden it up again. When the weather cools, the tarmac will harden permanently.
