How Tarmac Driveways are Installed?

Tarmac is a bituminous material that is laid when it is hot and pliable. Due to its flexibility and durability, tarmac is excellent for creating new driveways, roads and paths. Whilst in its soft state the tarmac is levelled and compacted to take on the exact shape and gradient of the driveway. After it has been laid it will be left to cool down and harden, as this helps to bind the particles together. Once the tarmac has fully hardened, it will be fit for walking and driving on, which will no doubt be what you need it for. It’s also very easy on the eye, which might be one of the reasons why you have chosen such a surface for your new driveway.

Why choose Tarmac for your New Driveway?

Whether you have an old tarmac driveway that needs replacing or your have an old concrete or block paving driveway that has come to the end of its tether, tarmac is a smart solution for your new driveway.

There are many reasons why you should choose tarmac when the time comes to have a new driveway installed. Tarmac is a versatile substance that can be combined with stones, brick and clay tiles to create different finishes. Coloured tarmac (red being the most popular after black) is another option available to you, giving you the freedom you need to enhance the exterior of your home as you see fit.
