Our Tarmac Services.

Tarmac, also known as asphalt or blacktop, is a widely used surfacing material for roads, driveways, car parks, and airports. It is a mixture of aggregates, such as crushed stone or gravel, and bitumen, a sticky black substance derived from crude oil. The combination is heated and blended to create a hot, workable material that is then spread and compacted onto a prepared surface.

Tarmac offers several advantages. It provides a smooth, durable surface that can withstand heavy traffic loads and harsh weather conditions. It offers excellent water resistance, preventing water from seeping into the underlying layers and causing damage. Additionally, tarmac can be easily repaired and resurfaced, extending its lifespan.

Tar & Chip Surfacing.

Tar and chip, also known as chip seal, is a cost-effective surfacing technique commonly used for roads, driveways, and car parks. It is installed by applying a layer of hot liquid asphalt (tar) onto a prepared surface and then immediately covering it with a layer of aggregate chips. The chips adhere to the sticky tar, creating a rough texture and providing a durable, skid-resistant surface.

Tar and chip has several benefits. It is an affordable alternative to other surfacing options, offering good traction and preventing water accumulation. It requires minimal maintenance and can withstand heavy traffic.

Resin Driveways & Surfacing

Resin-bound is popular for surfacing driveways, pathways, and outdoor areas. Mixing high-quality resin with aggregates like gravel or stone creates a durable, smooth, and visually appealing surface. The resin acts as a binder, holding the aggregates together and forming a solid, seamless finish.

Resin surfacing offers numerous advantages. It is highly versatile, allowing for customisation with a wide range of colours and aggregate sizes. The smooth surface is easy to clean, requires minimal maintenance, and provides excellent slip resistance.

With its aesthetic appeal, durability, and low maintenance requirements, resin surfacing has become a popular choice for both residential and commercial applications, adding a touch of elegance to outdoor spaces while offering practical functionality.
