There are a variety of factors that play a part in the cost of a tarmac driveway. From the materials used to the general size of the driveway, contacting our specialists will provide the best method to an accurate estimate on cost.

Often, Tarmac Driveways are cheaper than block paving. The cost efficiency of tarmac driveways usually stems from the time taken and the tools needed to lay the initial foundation. Tarmac driveways can take around a day to complete, whereas block paving can take several.

You will not need planning permission if a new or replacement tarmac driveway of any size uses permeable (or porous) surfacing. This allows water to drain through, such as gravel, permeable concrete block paving or porous asphalt, or if the rainwater is directed to a lawn or border to drain naturally.

Our experts will be able to provide further information based on your location and other specifications.

To extend the life of your tarmac driveway, you can apply a sealant to its surface. Most professionals will apply it after a year of its installation. The sealant works as a barrier to the elements that can cause damage to the surface and allow the driveway to stay fresh and clean.

Surprisingly, tarmac driveways Devon are the most affordable on the market and they last a long time making it a cost-effective solution. 

Tarmac driveways Devon can last 15 years with little or no maintenance. Tarmac also is great for the cold weather that the UK endures. 

Tarmac and asphalt look exactly the same but have very slightly different properties. Tarmac driveways Devon will offer more resistance to continual scuffing by motor tires and is less costly to replace. Macadam surfaces also generate dust easily.

It is extremely rare that you will ever have to clean your tarmac driveway Devon. If you do see a build-up of leaves on the tarmac you can remove the leaves using a yard brush and then dispose of them. If the tarmac driveway needs additional cleaning, you can combine 1 part of laundry detergent with 3 parts water and 1 part bleach and scrub the area with the same brush.

Sometimes when surfaces are newly laid, it can appear that there are brown patches. This occurs because when we use a roller, we use water to prevent the asphalt from sticking between the asphalt and the tarmac driveways. This appearance is only superficial and will disappear within a few days.

You shouldn’t drive on your newly laid tarmac driveway Devon for the first 3 days. Due to the tarmac drying, heavy vehicles could cause indentations to the tarmac.
