The installation of tarmac driveways has become increasingly popular among homeowners and property developers due to their durability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of installation. Tarmac, also known as Tarmacadam, is a material that combines crushed stone with tar, providing a strong and resilient surface ideal for driveways.

Tarmac drives are renowned for their durability and resilience. The installation process requires expertise and precision to ensure quality and longevity. A typical tarmac driveway installation begins with the preparation of the ground. This involves clearing any vegetation, levelling the ground, and laying a solid sub-base to support the weight of vehicles.

Once the preparation stage is completed, the tarmac is then poured onto the surface and spread evenly using specialist equipment. After that, it's left to cool and harden, transforming into a robust and long-lasting driveway.

Why Choose a Tarmac Driveway

Tarmac is a popular choice for both domestic and commercial properties; as compared to some of the alternatives, it can be a lower-cost solution. However, there are lots of other great reasons to choose a tarmac driveway.

Quick Installation

Tarmac driveway installation is a much quicker process than some of the alternative options, such as block paving of a Resin Driveway. The material is user-friendly and can be laid within a single day, depending on the driveway's size. This quick turnaround saves not only time but also money, making it a win-win for homeowners.


Tarmac driveways are resilient and can last for an extended period when installed correctly. They can comfortably withstand heavy vehicles and weather conditions such as snow, hail, and storms. The material's smooth finish also makes it skid-resistant, minimising ice and snow accumulation..

Kerb Appeal

Adding decorative edging to a tarmac driveway using bricks or stone to enhance the kerb appeal is easy. Our team will be happy to provide advice on the many options available to ensure your new driveway looks its best.


Tarmac is a reasonably priced material, making it favourable for homeowners seeking cost-effective solutions. When compared to brick, concrete, sandstone, and other types of pavement slabs, tarmac offers significant savings.


Tarmac is a more environmentally conscious choice as it can be reused multiple times. This recyclability factor makes it a preferred choice for individuals mindful of preserving natural resources. Unlike other driveway materials that often run into waterways, tarmac stands firm.
