What is Tarmac

Tarmac, short for tarmacadam, is a durable and cost-effective paving material commonly used for driveways, roads, and parking areas. It consists of crushed stone coated with tar, which acts as a binder. Tarmac is known for its smooth surface, excellent grip, and resistance to wear and tear, making it a practical choice for high-traffic areas.


Why Tarmac Driveways Are the Smart Choice for Your Home

Wondering why tarmac driveways are so popular? Here’s why they’re a fantastic choice for homeowners in the UK:

  • Unbeatable Durability: Tarmac is renowned for its exceptional strength and resilience. It can withstand heavy vehicle traffic, daily wear and tear, and extreme weather conditions without cracking or deteriorating, ensuring a long-lasting driveway solution.

  • Swift Installation: Compared to other driveway materials, tarmac is incredibly quick and easy to install. This means less disruption to your daily life and a faster turnaround time for your project.

  • Cost-Effective: Tarmac offers exceptional value for money, being a more affordable option than materials like concrete or block paving. You get a high-quality driveway without breaking the bank.

  • Low Maintenance: Tarmac driveways are a breeze to maintain. Regular sweeping and occasional power washing are all it takes to keep them looking their best, saving you time and effort in the long run.

  • Weather Resistant: Tarmac is built to endure the UK’s unpredictable weather. It’s resistant to rain, frost, and even heatwaves, ensuring your driveway remains in top condition all year round.

  • Eco-Friendly: Tarmac is a sustainable choice for your driveway. It’s a recyclable material, contributing to a smaller environmental footprint compared to other options.

With its impressive durability, cost-effectiveness, low maintenance requirements, and eco-friendly nature, tarmac is the smart choice for homeowners seeking a practical and attractive driveway solution.

Expert Tarmac Driveway Installation in Dorset: Our Proven Process

Crafting a durable and beautiful tarmac driveway requires meticulous attention to detail and a well-defined process. At Kola Construction, we follow these steps to ensure your new driveway exceeds your expectations:

Site Preparation:

  • Excavation: We carefully excavate the area to a depth of 150mm-300mm, ensuring a stable base for your new driveway.
  • Muck Away: All waste material is removed from the site, leaving a clean slate for the next steps.
  • Edging Installation: We install your chosen edgings, which not only define the driveway’s borders but also add to its aesthetic appeal.
  • Drainage System: A new surface water drainage system is implemented to prevent water pooling and ensure longevity.
  • Weed Membrane: We lay a weed membrane to prevent unwanted plant growth and maintain a tidy driveway.

Foundation and Base Layers:

  • Type 1 MOT Base: A robust Type 1 MOT base course is laid, providing exceptional load distribution and sub-surface drainage. This is the backbone of your driveway’s durability.
  • Binder Course: A binder course (14-20mm DBM) is applied to a depth of approximately 40mm. This layer acts as a vital intermediary between the base and surface layers, further distributing weight and preventing cracks.

Final Touches:

  • Surface Course: The final layer, the surface course (10mm SMA), is laid to a depth of approximately 40mm. This top layer is responsible for providing a smooth, skid-resistant surface, ensuring traction and safety for both vehicles and pedestrians.
