What is a Tarmac Driveway?

A tarmacadam drive is a strong, durable surfacing that can last a long time with very little upkeep. It is a porous material which means water can flow in and out of the surface to stop flooding. You may need to sweep your drive occasionally to reduce the build-up of dirt and contaminants which will prevent it from getting clogged and no longer porous. Macadam-drives can be a great option as it gives a simple, clean design that can be used in all weathers and lasts a long time.

Tarmac Driveways Costs

The costs of tarmac driveways can vary depending on many factors. The size and location will be the biggest factor that will alter the price as a larger drive will obviously have higher costs due to more materials being used. You can take a look at this page to see more information on our costs for these products - http://www.driveway-ideas.co.uk/costs/isle-of-wight/ or contact us for a quote. Another way the pricing will increase is if you choose to have your tarmac drive coloured. The hot tar and stones mixture can go through a dying process which can make it any colour, however this will increase the price compared to regular, undyed asphalt. Tarmacadam in general is a cheaper material option compared to other surfacing such as block paving, imprinted concrete and resin bound. Although this may be a cheaper option, the other material choices could be better due to the appearance and durability being stronger.
