Tarmac has long been the material of choice for most driveways in the UK, and although more and more people are now opting for block paving or pattern imprinted concrete solutions, tarmac remains a hugely popular product.
Tarmac, also known as Bitmac, is an inexpensive choice for driveways, pathways and forecourts and is the material from which most roads are made. The final product is sealed with a bitumen spray and your choice of chippings then applied to the surface. This seal prevents water from seeping down into the road or driveway which can cause serious damage. The chippings are available in a range of colours and sizes and as well as looking good, provide anti-skid protection to the surface.
The uppermost layer of a tarmac installation can be ordered in a choice of several colours and block edging, kerbing and guttering can be all added to the project to improve its aesthetics and practicality.
A Bit About Bitmac
Bitmac is simply an alternative name for tarmac, the technical term for which is ‘bituminous macadam’, often shortened to bitmac.
Bitmac is suited to roads, driveways, forecourts and pathways and is a very cost-effective solution. It is now available in several colours as well as the classic black tarmac we are all so familiar with.
Once laid, bitmac must be surface dressed to prevent water from entering and to provide an anti-skid surface for roads. If used for driveways or paths, its appearance can be greatly enhanced by adding some block edging or kerbing.
