A tarmac driveway will greatly enhance any property however, big or small and can look quite stunning, if installed properly. At Driveline Paving Ltd, we are highly experienced and as all work is carried out by expert tradesman, you can be rest assured of a good job.

All tarmac driveways are installed to the same specification as block paving, in that, they are dug out and stoned up to a thickness of 4 to 8 inches, depending on the ground underneath, with type 1 Hard-core and compacted with a roller. The tarmac is laid in two layers, the base course will be around 50mm thick and the top coursewill be around 25mm thick when rolled out. Customers have a choice of red or black, quality top coats. This should then be levelled and compacted using the appropriate machinery with all the necessary drainage considerations taken care of.

The actual tarmac covering should be laid with a 12.5mm base layer followed by a 25mm wearing course, which should give you a tarmac driveway that lasts for many, many years to come.

Tarmac driveways are often used for highly trafficked areas and are a popular choice due to their durability and the availability of colours. It is easy to install and lay, when done by professionals. It is low maintenance, practical and economical. New tarmac is specifically designed to withstand the surface aggravation of power steering.
