Tarmacadam driveway with a contrasting block pave edging

Nottingham Paving Co are experts in installing tarmac driveways with the latest quality bitumen and making sure that the preparation of the driveway is firstly clean and free from organic matter to avoid the surface from developing cracks.

Tarmac is a suitable material for your driveway installation.

It is also commonly used for highly trafficked areas such as forecourts, car parks, school playgrounds and private roads.

 

Of all the different types of surfacing which can be used to construct a driveway, tarmacadam is considered the budget option, especially when compared to block paving, or pattern imprinted concrete.

However, whilst large areas can be economically resurfaced the cost of using tarmac for a small driveway can be comparable to the more aesthetically pleasing block paving.

Advantages:

 

Tarmacadam is:

Durable,

Reliable,

Smooth surface.

Relatively easy to repair.

Tarmacadam is considered the budget option, especially when compared to block paving, or pattern imprinted concrete.

Resurfacing

Resurfacing a driveway is the process of putting a new layer of tarmac over the existing layer, many properties can benefit from the fact that most existing tarmac and concrete drives can be overlaid with a new wearing course which means minimal disruption and fantastic cost advantages.

Reasons for tarmac sealing

Tarmac and asphalt surfaces are very vulnerable to the damaging effects of UV light from the sun. Over time the surface colour of the tarmac will fade and eventually the aggregate will become loose after prolonged exposure to UV light. If left to deteriorate further, the tarmac or asphalt will eventually start to crack up in places and the whole tarmac driveway or car park might have to be replaced.
