Tarmac drives can last for years and years if laid correctly, so call in the experts.

A good driveway has to be properly prepared and installed to be able to take the weight of vehicles.

Customer satisfaction is very important to us.

 

 

Vision Drives & Patios are experts in installing tarmac driveways with the latest quality bitumen and making sure that the preparation of the driveway is firstly clean and free from organic matter to avoid the surface from developing cracks.

Tarmac Driveway with contrasting block pave edging.

Tarmac is a suitable material for your driveway installation.

It is also commonly used for highly trafficked areas such as forecourts, car parks, school playgrounds and private roads.

 

Of all the different types of surfacing which can be used to construct a driveway, tarmacadam is considered the budget option, especially when compared to block paving, or pattern imprinted concrete.

However, whilst large areas can be economically resurfaced the cost of using tarmac for a small driveway can be comparable to the more aesthetically pleasing block paving.

Advantages:

Tarmacadam is:

Durable

Reliable

Has a smooth and even surface

Relatively easy to repair

It can be re-surfaced if it gets damaged 

Weatherproof and Waterproof

Tarmacadam is considered the budget option, especially when compared to block paving, or pattern imprinted concrete.

More aesthetically pleasing

Resurfacing

Resurfacing a driveway is the process of putting a new layer of tarmac over the existing layer, many properties can benefit from the fact that most existing tarmac and concrete drives can be overlaid with a new wearing course which means minimal disruption and fantastic cost advantages.

Our Process


  1. Remove the current driveway surface

  3. Compact the base soil
  4. Cover the base soil with crushed rock
  5. Pack the crushed rock into the subsoil
  6. Allow the base to settle
  7. Compact the asphalt with a heavy roller
  8. Treat the edges of the driveway

Reasons for tarmac sealing

Tarmac and asphalt surfaces are very vulnerable to the damaging effects of UV light from the sun. Over time the surface colour of the tarmac will fade and eventually the aggregate will become loose after prolonged exposure to UV light. If left to deteriorate further, the tarmac or asphalt will eventually start to crack up in places and the whole tarmac driveway or car park might have to be replaced.
