Usual steps involved

  • scraping off the top layer of dirt and weeds and removing any excess gravel.
  • treating the driveway with weed and moss killer
  • creating and consolidating a level 804 sub base, with a gradient to allow for rain water run off. If a driveway needed extra drainage we would install a drainage grid and link it to the storm drain or a purpose built soak pit.
  • laying a 2½” layer of S.M.A. tarmac which is rolled smooth to complete the driveway.
  • clearing the site of all rubbish and taking it away to the recycling dump.

Driveway repairs

Depending on the extend of damage to your existing paving, , we can either re-surface it, or restore your tarmac to its former glory by applying TarmaSeal. Unlike cheap bitumen paints, TarmaSeal is :

  • very hard wearing,
  • resistant to stains and water penetration,
  • restores lost colour,
  • covers stains and spillages
  • increases lifespan of tarmac and asphalt
