A Professional & Durable Choice

Selecting the right provider for tarmac driveways in Plymouth and its nearby regions can be a significant decision. With the increasing demand for sturdy, low-maintenance driveways, finding a trustworthy partner is essential.

Tarmac driveways in Plymouth stand out for their exceptional weather resistance, capable of withstanding various conditions like storms, hail, and ice. Not only is tarmac remarkably durable for supporting large vehicles, but its smooth surface also provides essential skid resistance. This feature is particularly beneficial in reducing snow and ice accumulation.

In terms of sustainability, tarmac surpasses concrete as it’s infinitely recyclable. It can be reused repeatedly without any loss of material, making it an excellent choice for the environmentally conscious. The construction of a tarmac driveway is also eco-friendly as it doesn’t contribute to waterway pollution, thereby helping to conserve natural resources.

Ground Preparation

The initial step involves excavating the driveway area to around 180mm below the surface level, adjusting for any irregularities in the ground.

Edging Installation

To prevent the edges of the tarmac from cracking under vehicle pressure, robust concrete is installed as edging. This helps maintain the tarmac’s shape and integrity.

Surface Protection

A Geotextile woven membrane is laid post-excavation. This layer suppresses weeds, prevents sinking, and reinforces the driveway base to support heavy loads.

Base Layering

Over the membrane,Class 1 MOT/803 quarried stone is spread….50mm of 20mm wearing course is installed then a top coat of 30mm of 6mm DENC or SMA tarmac.

Drainage System

Ensuring proper drainage is paramount for all driveway installations, including tarmac surfaces, to facilitate efficient water management. In the event of encountering drainage or utility systems during our work, rest assured that we will address and manage them professionally and effectively.

Concrete Edgings

Concrete edgings are then put in place as part of the driveway structure.

Optional Aesthetics

For added visual appeal, options like block paving or sandstone setts can be integrated at the driveway edges.

Tarmac Application

Finally, the tarmac is applied in two stages: a base coat of about two inches, followed by a top coat, both compacted with a roller for a smooth finish. This precision-driven process results in a neat, durable driveway capable of enduring heavy vehicle use.
