As one of the areas leading tarmac contractors we have gained much experience through our involvement in thousands of tarmacing projects, from driveway tarmacing, forecourts, car park and road tarmacing.

We regularly undertake tarmac surfacing and tarmac resurfacing projects for both private residential and commercial customers involving everything from roads, pathways, pavements , walkways, playgrounds, driveways, forecourts and car parks.

Our recent projects have included small residential drives, agricultural access roads, commercial access roads, farm tracks, forecourts and car parks.

We are able to provide a wide variety of tarmacs and finishes including the standard black and blue and the popular red and green coloured tarmacs.

Professionally laid tarmac is attractive and hard wearing.

There are three layers involved in tarmac laying, starting with preparation and the foundations.

  1. In most cases we will excavate the area which requires tarmacing down to a depth of around 16 to 18 centimetres. Then a base of crushed hardcore (rock, chipped stone and broken bricks etc) will be laid down and compacted to give a solid foundation.
  2. We will then edge the outline of the area with either edging kerbstones or a decorative stone. These are then laid out on both sides which will are supported whilst the tarmac laying takes place.
  3. We lay the tarmac in two layers;
    • The first or "bottom" layer is known as the "base" and is usually made of a coarser aggregate. As this is laid out our specialist team spread the base ensuring full coverage and a uniform thickness all over.
    • The second or "top" layer is called the "wearing course". Once the base layer has been raked to ensure full coverage we then roll the base layer with a roller until the tarmac surface shines and the roller leaves no further indentations or marks. We then lay the top course which contains a much smaller grade of aggregate once again ensuring full coverage. The top layer is again compressed until a high shine finish is achieved, not only making the tarmac coating stronger but also ensuring it has longevity.
