Tarmacadam or (Tarmac) is often thought to be the cheapest surfacing material, but for small areas it can prove more expensive than say for example block paving. If you are considering a Tarmacadam as the surfacing material for your driveway, it may be worth baring in mind that depending on the size of your driveway, Block Paving may be a more affordable option.
We use Tarmacadam for many larger driveways and resurfacing projects. These project can range from one off driveways, car parks and even roads.
Terrain Designs has a team that is highly competent in the use of Tarmacadam for resurfacing. Tarmacadam commonly comes in either black or red, however it can be coloured by using a coloured binder or coloured aggregates or stone chips. Coloured Tarmacadam is more expensive than traditional black.
We normally price Tarmacadam resurfacing work by weight or area and occasionally we can offer a day rate based on the size of the area to be resurfaced.
Tarmacadam is the perfect material for use in surfacing and resurfacing areas where heavy vehicles are being driven or parked. Tarmacadam can also be used for pathways and public walkways. We do not recommend its use for domestic garden paths.
Tarmacadam Resurfacing of Roads, Pathways, Car Parks and Playgrounds
Tarmacadam will often be hand laid and rolled for walkways and paths and a paving machine is used to resurfacing where cars and heavier vehicles will be travelling over or parked on the surfacing.
Tarmacadam should normally be retained by a kerb or edging at any free edges. Timber edgings can be used for for footpaths and pathways, fancy concrete edging for driveways and traditional kerbs for roads and car parks.
