Tarmac Driveways Newcastle

Or Call: (020) xxxxxxxx

Asphalt is a paving material, also known as bitumen concrete or tarmac (BCP), applied to driveways, parking lots, and other surfaces. We can produce it from tar mixed with aggregates like sand or gravel, making it appear more like a cement slurry than tarmac!

Tarmac is the material that binds tarmac together, and it’s a popular driveway construction material. Because tarmac has several advantages over other materials in this class, it is a frequent option for driveway construction.

It has a high grip and is both durable and stylish! An expert tarmac installer will visit your home or company to discuss your needs with you before we begin working on your road project.

The process of tarmac installation may appear to be more complicated than it is. Tarmac will complement any décor and provide a touch of class to your property or business! We can install tarmac on the street, driveway, sidewalk, and other areas on your property.

What Is the Difference Between a Tarmac and Concrete Driveway?

Concrete driveways are less expensive to construct, but you must paint them every few years because they become grey; Asphalt drives are more cost-effective, but you must reseal them every few years. If properly maintained, tarmac driveways require no painting and endure for a long time if properly built. 

Our Process Working with Tarmac
  • We’ll come to your site to figure out where the pavement should go first before getting started.
  • The tarmac specialist will draw all of the locations where the tarmac is required for each job, including doors, walkways, and other crucial components that must be free while we work.
  • Then, once the tarmac is finished, we’ll remove anything you don’t need from those areas, as well as vegetation that might block tarmacking. 
Why Choose Tarmac
  • Tarmac is a versatile, long-lasting material that we may use in various settings, including the driveway, sidewalks, curbs, and other locations around your home. Tarmac also prevents water from getting in since it is packed with tar and forms an impermeable barrier that keeps moisture out. Tarmac is resistant to moisture, so you won’t have to worry about tarmac shifting over time because loose particles allow water to seep through rapidly. Not only is tarmac robust and beautiful, but it’s also long-lasting! We’ll decorate your tarmac surface with different designs such as diamonds and stars for an elegant touch.
  • We use high-quality materials for tarmac driveways, so our clients are delighted with the outcomes.
  • Tarmac also has a low upkeep burden – there will be no more worry about resealing your tarmac surface every year. Keep your asphalt clear of debris and pollutants for the best possible outcomes with our asphalt. You may now use your tarmacs without having to worry about maintaining them!
  • We take pleasure in our high-quality craftsmanship, so you’ll end up with stunning tarmac when we complete the job.

Tarmac drives are more costly than gravel drives, but they have features that make them well worth the expense.!

Considerations Before Tarmac Installation
  • Size of your house
  • How much money you’ll invest in tarmac surface supplies (such as asphalt or concrete)
  • Whether to use a level or sloping surface for the drain. The slope of your property; whether it is flat or steep 
  • The time it takes to complete the project (i.e., how many hours per day)
  • We may slow travel times by up to 30 minutes during construction if the work necessitates road closures or traffic disruptions.
  • If there are no barriers in place, inclement weather such as rain/snow storms may cause the tarmacking procedure to be delayed.
  • Property maintenance (such as weed control)
How We Lay Out Tarmac Surfaces

Before we can lay down that thick layer of tarmac as smoothly as possible, it’s critical not to do anything. Finally, leave some extra tarp on the ground to ensure that the entire project has an equal thickness throughout so that when it’s finished, there will be nothing left but a beautiful tarp! We get rid of all of the weeds, mildew, and trash from the surface.

  • We start with the slope and work our way down to the fall height; this helps us figure out how much water will flow off during wet seasons without puddling in low areas/pools, which might cause home foundations to suffer harm and tarmac that is not properly waterproofed.
  • If necessary, it also aids in the formation of adequate drainage pathways. If we’re applying tarmac on a slope, we’ll need to level it with a tamping machine.
  • We dig and remove topsoil from the tarmacked region to create adequate drainage channels for water runoff and install a waterproofing membrane.
  • Use a sander to polish the surface after you’ve finished pouring asphalt with aggregate in it.
Tarmac Driveways: What Makes Them Unique from the Rest

In the long run, tarmac is more durable than gravel or concrete.

Tarmac is a more cost-effective and easier to install alternative to concrete since it does not require pouring; all that’s necessary is for drainage channels to be dug and the surface tamped down with extensive equipment.

We employ the following equipment during tarmac driveway installation:

  • Tampers
  • Tarps 
  • Tape measurers
  • Shovels
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Tarmac tampers – these power-driven rollers force soil and aggregate into the tarmac.
  • Shaving machines – This equipment is used to remove any extra tarmac or dirt that may have been left on the surface of the road.
  • Pneumatic drills 
  • Rotary hammers
