Tarmac: Frequently Asked Questions
Tarmac or Asphalt is certainly the most cost effective way to surface an area. Prices can range from £20 – £100 per m2 depending on access, complexity of project and existing base. Coloured and commercial tarmac can be significantly more.
Tarmac is short for tarmacadam, a road surfacing material made by combining macadam surfaces, tar, and sand. The mixture is then laid and compacted using a vibrating roller to form a smooth and neat finish.
Moss on tarmac is fairly common and is best treated twice yearly using a specialist moss killer.
Most tarmac is not permeable although there are specialised, permeable tarmac systems available. They can be expensive and not suitable for a long term approach.
Tarmac is best cleaned using a specialised brush system that gently scrubs the surface with warm water and cleaning chemicals.
Tarmac pertly cures in 24 hours although can take significantly longer in the warmer months. In most cases it is best after a full season on weather changes.
Dropped Kerbs Solutions
A dropped kerb or vehicle crossover is the dipped or lowered kerb that allows you to access your property or business from the road by driving across the pavement.
It’s a legal requirement to have a constructed dropped kerb as it is an offence to drive across a footway to access your property without one. This is because it may cause damage to the footway or the services (gas, electric, water) underneath.
We work closely with West Sussex County Council Highways Department and can offer Dropped Kerbs/Vehicle Cross Overs including for heavy duty vehicles.
Providing access to your property for off-road parking can often add overall value to your home, whilst making it much more marketable when you come to sell. We offer full dropped kerb and driveways services that can really add kerb appeal to your property. Contact our team today for advice or a no obligation quote.
