There are, of course, many materials that are currently used in the creation of driveways; concrete, pavers, block paving and tarmac to name but a few. When you take a look at driveways around the UK, tarmac still seems to be the most popular, and for good reason, as this cost-effective solution ticks all the boxes from a homeowner’s perspective.

Ground Preparation

You may have heard a few horror stories about cowboy outfits offering cheap tarmac driveways, and these people typically skim a thin layer of tarmac over the driveway, which looks fine for a couple of days, before it breaks up. To correctly install a tarmac driveway, you must have the following:

  • Solid foundation
  • Drainage capabilities
  • At least 4 inches of tarmac

Maintenance Free Solutions

If a tarmac driveway is installed correctly, it shouldn’t require any maintenance, and a power wash every few months is all it takes to keep the surface clean and free of grime. The surface is non-slip, which is great in both wet and dry conditions, and you will always have good traction.
