Tar and chip driveways can be found at heritage properties and listed buildings and, in fact, it’s a popular choice across the whole of East Anglia. But it doesn’t cost the earth and is by far the most cost-effective surfacing technique.
We confidently believe that we can instantly transform the area that you’d like to be surfaced. As well as our professional approach and years of experience, we offer two tar and chip finishes; a lovely light brown pea shingle, with a very natural appearance, or a high-quality grey granite that looks professional. We are happy to advise on what would best suit the area to be surfaced.
How we do surface dressing
To explain the process, firstly we prepare the surface ensuring no potholes or loose stones are visible, particularly working on areas where the existing surface has deteriorated over time. Then we cover the surface with an application of hot bitumen liquid tar, followed instantly with either the gold pea shingle – for that lovely natural look and country feel – or grey granite aggregate, which is a popular choice for commercial areas.
Taking a huge amount of pride in our work, being extremely thorough in our preparation and only using the highest quality tar, means that your new surface will look great for years to come. From us you will get the most professional and efficient service throughout the job, as well as an end result of the very best quality.
