Tarmac is a suitable material for your driveway installation.  It is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance.

A variety of edgings can be used, using a variety of materials, colours, shapes and sizes.

The beauty of tarmac is that not only can it be repaired, if necessary, but it can also be re-surfaced.

It is also commonly used for highly trafficked areas such as forecourts, car parks, school playgrounds, driveways, as well as private roads.


Of all the different types of surfacing which can be used to construct a driveway or car park then tarmacadam is considered the budget option, especially when compared to block paving, or pattern imprinted concrete.

However, whilst large areas can be economically resurfaced the cost of using tarmac for a small driveway can be comparable to the more aesthetically pleasing block paving.

Mr Drives & Patios Ltd provides a full "revive your drive" service.

Resurfacing a driveway is the process of putting a new layer of tarmac over the existing layer, many properties can benefit from the fact that most existing tarmac and concrete drives can be overlaid with a new wearing course which means minimal disruption and fantastic cost advantages.

Reasons for tarmac sealing

Tarmac and asphalt surfaces are very vulnerable to the damaging effects of UV light from the sun. Over time the surface colour of the tarmac will fade and eventually the aggregate will become loose after prolonged exposure to UV light. If left to deteriorate further, the tarmac or asphalt will eventually start to crack up in places and the whole tarmac driveway or car park might have to be replaced.  Sealants help protect as well as enhance the surface of the driveway.
