The cost of a tarmac driveway will depend on the size and shape of the area, but to avoid ‘cowboy builders’ and a poor job you should always be prepared to pay at least £1,000 for a professional installation. Anything lower is likely to be made of an unauthorised mixture that is sure to come apart in a matter of months.
Tarmac is a naturally much more pliant than most other driveway surfaces, and has many benefits, as stated here. Because of this relative flexibility, it’s suitable for places with extremes in temperature: it can naturally expand with heat and contract with cold without cracking or suffering from faults. In cold and icy/snowy environs, tarmac driveways can be salted without suffering from any detriment, which can be especially handy.
Tarmacadam driveways are easy to install as in most cases they can be laid directly onto an existing surface. In some extreme cases excavation may be required in order to create a suitable surface to lay onto but an installer would let you know prior to any decisions being made. Once the driveway is in place then it is extremely long lasting, strong and durable which is why it is such a popular choice for many. If you are really looking to add a personalised touch then ask us about coloured tarmac which is becoming more and more popular as many opt for red, green and even blue!
