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.
