Tarmac has been a favourite material in the installation of driveways for years and years and is still as popular today. Here are the 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.

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

If you have an existing tarmac driveway then we can simply lay new tarmac on top, ask a member of our friendly team for more information.

Our aim is to build you a tarmac driveway from the best quality bitumen that will last for many years to come whilst giving you no problems other than general wear and tear.

All of our work is guaranteed and we are fully insured. We do not always require a deposit, payment is normally on completion once the customer is 100% happy with the driveway installation.

So, for the installation of a beautiful tarmac driveway or the repair of an existing one in the Essex area, call us today on Freephone 0800 170 0215, we look forward to hearing from you.
