Tarmac Driveway vs. Other Driveway Materials

Choosing the right driveway material for your property requires understanding your needs and comparing options. Tarmac offers affordability, low maintenance, and durability, ideal for high-traffic areas. It boasts a smooth surface and comes in various colours, but may require occasional resealing.

However, your perfect fit might lie elsewhere. Gravel provides a cost-effective option with a natural aesthetic, but requires regular maintenance. Concrete offers strength, durability, and design flexibility, but can be prone to cracking. Block paving adds elegance and customization, but comes with a higher price tag and complex installation.

By carefully considering your budget, desired aesthetics, and functional needs, you can unlock the perfect material to elevate your property.

Tarmac Driveway Maintenance

Maintaining your tarmac driveway is crucial to maximising its lifespan and preserving its visual appeal. By incorporating these simple yet effective maintenance practices into your routine, you can ensure your driveway continues to function flawlessly for years to come:

  • Regular cleaning: Sweep away leaves, debris, and dirt to prevent them from accumulating and potentially damaging the surface.
  • Prompt spill removal: Address oil spills, gasoline, or other chemicals immediately to prevent them from seeping into the tarmac and causing deterioration.
  • Seasonal care: During winter, clear snow and ice promptly to prevent water from freezing and expanding within cracks, potentially causing further damage.
  • Professional resealing: Consider periodic professional resealing, typically every 5-10 years, to replenish the tarmac’s protective layer and enhance its resistance to water and weather elements.

By following these essential maintenance tips, you can significantly extend the lifespan and maintain the beauty of your Dorking tarmac driveway, adding lasting value to your property.

Delighted with my new drive and fencing and Kane constructions work in perparing the site laying the porous ashfelt, and topping with the resin finish. They had to wait for suitable weather to lay the resin . I was kept informed and the job finished to a high standard.

Kane Construction Services have carried out two jobs for me over the last ten years. I had a garden completely dug out and a driveway laid 8 years ago and when I moved house I would not have chosen any other company to build me a brand new drive. When you find excellent work ethics, great workmanship, with trustworthy and pleasant staff you don't want to choose anyone else. Tom always makes the job clear, communicates well and has a very clear price. Tom employees staff that really do know what they're doing. With decades of experience in construction, you know you are in safe hands with Kane Construction Services. I have no hesitation in promoting their work and recommend them to friends constantly.
