Essex Tarmac Driveways

Tarmac has been a favourite material in the installation of driveways for years and years, and is still just as popular today. Here are a few reasons why people still choose tarmac:

  • Cost effective
  • Very strong and hard wearing
  • Attractive
  • Lasts for years
  • Flexible to accommodate imperfections in underlying surfaces and irregular shapes
  • Can be laid on top of existing driveways
  • Low maintenance, easy to look after
  • Fraction of the cost of other materials
  • Smooth finish
  • Inexpensive repairs
  • Easy to repair, remove and dispose of as it is a 100% recyclable product
  • Not only in black, other colours are available

Here at Forest Drives & Resin Ltd, we install tarmac driveways for homeowners but we also install car parks, roadways, tennis courts and forecourts for commercial and industrial customers too in Braintree, Chelmsford, Harlow, Hornchurch, Romford, Billericay, Ilford and all surrounding areas.

Driveway Preparation is Key

As with the preparation of our block paved driveways and patios, preparation is key in being able to achieve the highest standards of finish to your tarmac driveway using the same proven formula:

  • Excavation to the correct depth
  • Laying of a membrane
  • Retaining of borders
  • Checking of drainage
  • Adding a crushed concrete base
  • Laying of tarmac

The Benefits of Tarmac Driveways

Tarmac driveways are commonly used throughout the UK, providing an affordable and flexible driveway solution that requires very little ongoing maintenance. There are a number of benefits in having a tarmac driveway installed, including its affordability, durability, unique appearance and simple maintenance.

Long-lasting and strong

Tarmac is known to be highly resilient, especially when it comes to vehicles being parked on it. If you own a number of cars, tarmac would be the ideal material to hold the weight as it doesn’t get damaged or crack under pressure. Many UK roads and motorways are surfaced with tarmac, so you’ll have an idea of just how durable your driveway can be! Tarmac is also water resistant, and able to withstand any kind of hot and cold weather.

Quick and easy to install

If you’re current driveway is looking past its best, then tarmac is the best material to use to freshen up the driveway. Not only is it relatively cheap, but they’re also simple to install. They may not be the most attractive compared to resin or paving, but it’s an economical option for homeowners in search of a new driveway. Tarmac driveways are ideal when used as a commercial property driveway and car parking, and it remains one of the most popular choices for homeowners looking to resurface their driveway.

Simple to maintain

Tarmac is incredibly strong and resistant, and any scratches or marks that could occur can easily be repaired by a professional – like Forest Drives and Resin! To undertake the repairs, we would simply mend the area; there wouldn’t be any need for an entire new installation.
