Our team has many years experience in using tarmacadam. Tarmac can be a great choice for a parking area, here we talk about the pros and cons.
Generally speaking, Tarmac can be considered to be the most cheapest method of laying a hard surface. As you can imagine, Tarmac is a popular chose by most however, what people don’t know is that a Tarmac Driveways can be a time-consuming job which requires specialist tools, machinery and, not least, knowledge.
For this reason, a Tarmac Driveways will only work out to be cost effective once driveway is up to a suitable size, this is where the economies of scale kick in. A properly maintained asphalt driveway will perform much like concrete, but at a lower cost. The trade-off is that you will need to seal coat the asphalt every few years.
Because it is a petroleum product, asphalt is flexible, which makes it less likely to crack. But asphalt can get very hot in summer. Asphalt driveways typically last 12 to 35 years, as long as installation is done correctly. Other factors that can effect the driveways lifespan are climate, usage and how well it has been maintained.
You do need to think hard before deciding on tarmac for a driveway outside your home, particularly if you like to work on cars or motorcycles as a hobby. Petrol or diesel spills, or splashes of other solvents like penetrating oil, will break down the hardened top surface then eat their way through the lower layers.
