You will find examples of tar and chip driveways at heritage properties and listed buildings, but it doesn’t cost the earth and is by far the most cost-effective surfacing technique. It can be applied over any type of surface and can be used for your home driveway, a smallholding, a farm road, a commercial driveway, car park or large area. Wherever you are in Lincolnshire, the tar and chip finish we provide will remain effortlessly neat and tidy, with little or no maintenance needed after it’s been installed.
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.
With our thorough preparation and the fact that we only use the highest quality tar, your new surface will look great for years to come. Throughout the installation, from us you will get the most professional and efficient service, as well as an end result of the very best quality.
