Tarmac Driveway Benefits

Tarmac driveways offer a compelling combination of practicality and longevity for homeowners. Renowned for their durability, tarmac driveways can withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions for many years with minimal wear and tear. This translates to a cost-effective solution, as you can expect a tarmac driveway to require less frequent repairs or replacements compared to other materials. The smooth, seamless surface also sheds water efficiently, reducing the risk of frost damage and puddles during wet weather.

Furthermore, tarmac boasts several installation advantages. Compared to other options like block paving, tarmac requires minimal groundwork, leading to a faster installation process and potentially lower costs. The smooth surface is not only aesthetically pleasing but also benefits your vehicles. It provides a comfortable ride and reduces friction, which can contribute to extending the lifespan of your tires and suspension components.

Tarmac Installation Process

Laying a tarmac surface is a detailed process that underpins a long-lasting and functional driveway or pathway.  Professional tarmac installation commences with thorough groundwork, the cornerstone for the finished product’s stability. This groundwork involves excavating the designated area to a specific depth, typically around 300mm, and removing any existing materials.  A crucial aspect of this stage is attention to drainage. The subgrade is carefully levelled to ensure water flows away from the surface, preventing pooling and potential damage.  This may involve incorporating features like channels or soakaways to effectively manage rainwater runoff.

Following this in-depth groundwork, skilled professionals construct a layered foundation using high-quality materials. A geotextile membrane is often introduced at this stage to suppress weed growth and provide additional stability.  Next, a layer of sub-base aggregate, typically crushed concrete, is thoroughly compacted to create a firm and solid base. The thickness of this layer will vary depending on the anticipated load the tarmac will bear.  Once compacted, edging is installed to confine the tarmac and prevent it from spreading or cracking over time.  Finally, the tarmac itself is laid in multiple layers, starting with a binder course that provides a strong foundation for the wearing course, the top layer that users will come into contact with.  Each layer is precisely levelled, rolled, and compacted to ensure a smooth, level, and hard-wearing surface.

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.

Tarmac Driveways – FAQ’s

Tarmac driveways are generally more cost-effective than alternatives like block paving, especially considering their long lifespan and minimal maintenance requirements.
While tarmac is typically black in colour, it can be mixed with pigments to achieve different shades. However, intricate designs are not feasible with tarmac.
You can typically use your tarmac driveway within a few days after installation, but it’s best to avoid heavy vehicles and sharp turns for the first week to allow proper curing.
