Benefits of Tarmac Surfacing

Tarmac is a popular method for surfacing roads, carparks, and other commercial areas. In recent times, tarmac has risen in popularity due to its countless benefits:

Installing a Tarmac Driveway

When installing a new driveway the preparation is just as important and laying the tarmac or surface. At Curtis Surfacing we always ensure the driveway preparation is correctly undertaken. This not only important to ensure the driveway is level when laid, it’s also essential in making sure your driveway lasts the tests of time and doesn’t sink when you park your vehicles on it. Tarmac driveways can be installed quickly and efficiently, often in just a few days, minimizing disruption to your daily routine.

The first part of the process depends on your property, usually, it requires groundwork or excavation of the existing driveway or garden. Our team will make sure that the area is excavated to sufficient depth, usually 150mm – 300mm dependant on your requirements.

If you’re having an edging around your tarmac driveway, our team will install these, ensuring they are set and correctly positioned.

If applicable, we will then install a surface water drainage system. This usually consists of low profile drainage system channels, finished with either metal grids or black. The design of these can be chosen by you to meet your design requirements.

We will then install a membrane to prevent the growth of weeds and then install a Type 1 MOT Sub-base. With a binder course typically laid at 40mm then installed on top of this.

The binder course sites between the surface and the sub-base to help distribute load weight when the driveway is being used by vehicles. This is an essential part of ensuring your tarmac doesn’t shift or sink over time.

We will then lay the tarmac surface, this layer is smooth and is the layer you see all year round. We always ensure this surface layer is tough & long-lasting, making sure your driveway lasts a lifetime!
