Many options for tarmac and asphalt driveways

There are a plethora of options when it comes to the design and style of tarmac and asphalt driveways. This range of choices comes from the ability to combine different mixtures of aggregate size and colour, borders of bricks, natural stone paving, block paving or kerbs, and other elements such as benches, flower beds, fencing and walling. Most probably, when it comes to tarmac and asphalt, the first thing that comes in your mind is the dark black colour. But you will get surprised to see that there is a wide range of colours, including orange, red, classic and leaf green, blue etc..

Additional paving types to tarmac projects


As a tarmac contractor, we realise that most tarmac projects can benefit from additional paving types such as paths, borders, walls and more thus we have skilled teams that can take care of everything. We specialise in tarmac but take just as much pride in our paving and additional works that are necessary to compliment a new tarmacadam driveway.

Although tarmac driveway installations are the central part of the project, equally important is the apron of pavement in front of it as this is the entrance to your driveway. The apron is the front part/beginning of the driveway and the closest to the road. We offer a wide range of options for the apron from imprint concrete, block paving, to natural stone cobbles such as limestone, sandstone or granite. If you select paving as your preferred apron option we have a range of colours, sizes and textures so every project has a unique aspect specific to each customers individual taste.

RESURFACING tarmac contractor

Tarmac Driveways is by your side and glad to assist you when you have decided to resurface your driveway instead of installing a new one. Resurfacing is the application of a new tarmac layer over the top of an existing pavement.

First of all, let us mention that resurfacing or tarmac overlay can occur on driveways, forecourts, and paths with a prior pavement of tarmac or concrete. With a resurfacing, you can achieve to make your driveway look lively like a new one. As it is not a DIY project and requires professional experience and equipment, you should contact tarmac contractors you trust.

It is important to mention is that the tarmac driveway resurfacing process includes five basic steps:

1) Driveway cleaning

The first step is the driveway cleaning that should be done very carefully in order to avoid problems with adherence.

2) Sloping

Then, the sloping takes place where we adjust the existing levels to ensure the new driveway layer will match the public oath and front door step.

3) Drainage

Next the correct installation of the drainage system helps prevent cracks and other issues in the future.

4) Laying the new tarmac

We then install the tarmac carefully ensuring even levels.

5) And rolling

In the end, the rolling occurs to ensure a smooth surface where no aggregates or stones are poking through the new tarmac surface.

Finally, keep in mind that resurfacing is a great and inexpensive method to give a new look to your property. It is the most affordable and quickest way to get like-new driveway as its cost compared to totally new construction is relatively lower.

But not always suitable

It is also important to mention that it will not always be suitable. Depending on the existing surface levels, and quality of the existing driveway and patio area resurfacing may or may not be the best option. We offer free quotes and expert advice so we can advise you of this option is appropriate for your property.
