In case you are not familiar with tar and chip we will briefly explain how this surface is constructed. As chosen contractor for tar and chip Cambridge, we will first apply a hot mix liquid asphalt to a concrete or suitable gravel base or the even existing tired paved driveway. Providing the existing driveway is in good enough condition this surface finish can be laid immediately on top. Where this is the case your new surface will offer incredible value for money and stunning fresh look. Phase two consists of one or two layers of crushed stone which will be generously spread on top of the hot tar (asphalt) and compacted down. The finished result is a stunning driveway which can be customized to your specifications. With a variety of colour finishes and patterns you can really make a space your own. An extensive list of coloured aggregates means you can give your home a modern twist or it can compliment the natural surroundings of a countryside home. On completion it is possible to have a very small percentage of loose chips remaining on the surface which over time can find a place and settle with traffic. Below you can see the first image is a fine example of how tar and chip can be utilised to cover a very large area whilst being durable and maintaining a natural look. This large area in a resin finish would be highly extravagant in comparison to the great vale of surface dressing (tar and chip). You will also find below a wonderful example of how we can overlay old and tired surfaces with tar and chip transforming the look of the property.

As your local experts for tar and chip Cambridge we are always happy to share as much information as possible to help you choose the right surface finish for your budget. Resin driveways and footpaths are a more durable option however they are also more expensive, especially for large surfaces. Long driveways and footpaths will rarely be seen in resin and will in fact be tar and chip. Below are a few key points that are worth mentioning.

  • Low-Maintenance – A tar and chip driveway requires very little to no maintenance. This type of surface finish will also not need to be sealed regularly, unlike block paving. It almost has self healing properties as often small cracks can become unseen as the tar warms in the hot weather.
  • Traction – The rough surface of this type of driveway helps to improve traction for vehicles and foot traffic. It also makes it very friendly in wet and icy condition. This makes it particularly popular for large footpaths in public grounds.
  • Longevity – Surface dressing (tar and chip)to driveways and footpaths typically has a lifespan of around 7-10 years. Which considering the cost is incredible value. As to renew it after that duration will still be a wise financial move.
