How Our Tarmac Driveways in Durham Are Laid:
Our tarmac driveways are installed to the same specification as our block paving jobs, in that, they are dug out and stoned up to a thickness of 4 to 8 inches, depending on the ground below, with type 1 Hard-core and compacted with a roller. The tarmac is installed in two layers, the base course will be around 50mm thick and the top course will be around 25mm thick when rolled out. Clients have a choice of red or black, quality top coats. This will then be levelled and compacted using the proper machinery with all the required drainage considerations looked after.
The actual tarmac covering must be laid with a 12.5mm base layer followed by a 25mm wearing course, which will give you a tarmac driveway that will last for many, many years to come.
