Benefits of Tarmac Driveways

There are several reasons why you would want to choose a tarmac driveway over a block paving or concrete driveway. We have listed some of the key benefits below:


Tarmac is a bituminous material that is laid whilst hot and pliable. It is levelled and compacted whilst still in its soft state, meaning it can take the shape and the gradient of the driveway more effectively. After this, it is left to cool down and harden. As the surface hardens the particles bind together, creating a durable surface that looks easy on the eye. The whole process is relatively straight forward and considered to be the easiest installation of all the paving options out there.

Cost Effective

Because the installation process involves less work than that of block paving, you will usually find that tarmac driveways are slightly cheaper. If you are looking for a new driveway on a budget, tarmac should probably be your starting point, but it all depends on the look you want to achieve.

Weather Protection and Durability

Tarmac is highly weather resistant and extremely durable. These properties alone make it highly suitable for driveway use, although tarmac can still be seen all over the UK on roads, walkways and paths.

Tarmac can withstand the harsh elements of wind, sleet, rain, snow, as well as maintaining its performance in blistering sunshine and heat. It is highly durable and abrasion resistant too, meaning it can withstand foot and road traffic, as well as having the ability to cope with pressure and day-to-day wear and tear.

Long Lasting & Easy to Maintain

Tarmac is a long-lasting material, making it a perfect choice for your new driveway. Once installed it will provide you with many years worth of stellar service, all-the-while being easy to clean and maintain with minimal fuss.


Your new tarmac driveway will be made to suit you. Unlike tarmac of old, it can now be made with different colours, red being one of the most popular. It can be customised in other ways too. In addition to the different colour options available, tarmac can be edged off with bricks, stones or clay tiles to create a more decorative look.
