Advantages of Tarmac Driveways

For any homeowner, a reliable and long-lasting driveway is an essential feature. Tarmac driveways consistently rank high in popularity due to their exceptional durability.  Unlike some materials that can crack or develop potholes over time, tarmac boasts superior resistance to weathering, wear and tear, and even oil spills. This translates to a minimal risk of future repairs or replacements, saving you time and money in the long run.  Furthermore, tarmac driveways are built to withstand the elements.  They can endure harsh winters and scorching summers without significant degradation, ensuring a consistently smooth and functional surface for years to come.

Beyond its impressive durability, tarmac offers another major advantage – minimal upkeep.  In contrast to gravel driveways that require frequent top-ups or block paving susceptible to weeds, tarmac requires very little maintenance. Regular sweeping to remove debris is all that’s needed to keep your tarmac driveway looking its best. This frees you from the burden of constant maintenance chores, allowing you to spend your valuable time on more important things. With its exceptional durability and effortless upkeep, a tarmac driveway offers a compelling combination of practicality and longevity, making it a smart investment for any homeowner.

The Tarmac Installation Process

Installing a tarmac driveway is a multi-step process that prioritises a strong foundation and a smooth, long-lasting surface. The initial stage involves meticulous groundwork. This begins by excavating the designated area to the proper depth, ensuring proper drainage to prevent future issues with water pooling or settling. A high-quality sub-base of compacted materials, like crushed rock, is then installed. This sub-base acts as a crucial layer, providing a solid and stable platform for the tarmac itself.

Once the groundwork is complete, the tarmac application begins. Two distinct layers are laid: a binder course and a wearing course.  The binder course, typically the first layer, serves as a strong base.  Composed of larger stones and asphalt binder, it provides structural integrity for the driveway.  The wearing course, the top layer, creates the smooth, finished surface you’ll use daily.  This layer is typically made with finer stone aggregates and a higher asphalt content, resulting in a denser and smoother finish.  Both layers are meticulously levelled, rolled, and compacted with specialised equipment to achieve optimal strength and create a seamless, long-lasting tarmac driveway.

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.
