Tarmac and asphalt are the most popular surfacing options for driveway and pathways across the UK. With their hard wearing and durable properties, tarmac and asphalt have become the number one choice for those looking for a value for money, long-lasting surface. If you’re looking to discover whether tarmac or asphalt is the right surfacing for you, this article aims to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Why are tarmac and asphalt so popular?
Tarmac and asphalt are great options for those looking for an affordable, yet smart driveway option. Usually, these surfaces can be laid incredibly quickly if carried out by a professional company such as Steve Collins Surfacing, so you can benefit from your new tarmac and asphalt surface as soon as possible.
Compared to other surfacing options, tarmac and asphalt are the easiest choices when it comes to your new surface. Unlike block paving and gravel, once laid, your new surface will provide many, many years of reliable service without the need to carry out any regular maintenance.
And because both tarmac and asphalt have incredibly durable properties, they can withstand the harshness of a pressure-washer, meaning if over time your surface discolours, you can make it look like new in no time at all.
Tarmac and asphalt can easily become part of a wider design, with many people opting to add other features such as a block paving border, or different drainage options if required.
