Tarmac Drives – Asphalt Driveway Installers Chorlton, Didsbury Greater Manchester
The driveway is often the first part of your home that visitors will see, particularly if they arrive by car. If your approach is in need of attention, you might want to consider laying down a new tarmac drive.
Tarmac drives (or, more accurately bitumen macadam drives) are known for being easy to install, neat in appearance and durable, and a professionally installed tarmac surface will certainly tick all three of those boxes. Good quality tarmac drives also have the added benefit of being waterproof, easy to maintain, smooth to drive upon and safe for pedestrians.
Laid by experienced asphalt driveway installers (asphalt is another term for bitumen), MT Paving tarmac drives will meet all of your expectations and, in most cases, exceed them. This is because we carry out the proper preparation, use high grade materials and give every project our full care and attention.
Premium quality tarmac drives require thorough preparation beforehand. First, the ground must be excavated to a suitable depth to form a strong foundation. We dig out to the specified 250mm depth and remove all debris from site to leave your entrance looking neat and tidy. We then put down a geotex membrane, to keep the weeds at bay, before laying and mechanically compressing 100 to 150mm of MOT Grade 1 aggregate. Only then do we apply the tarmac, starting with a 50mm layer of course tarmac, containing larger stones. Finally, we add a layer of fine or ‘topping tarmac,’ consisting of smaller stones. This 30mm layer is mechanically compressed to create the smooth, attractive surface that we all associate with a properly laid tarmac drive.
You may already have a precise idea of how you want your drive to look, but if you are struggling for inspiration, our considerable experience of laying tarmac drives, both in the Didsbury area and beyond, puts us in an ideal position to provide advice. In addition to the surface of the drive itself, MT Paving offer a range of border options, including high quality block-work, to enable you to frame your driveway and give it that personal touch.
The surface dressing specialists in the MT Paving team have worked together for over 15 years and we guarantee all of our work. Our high quality tarmac drives are built to last and will continue to enhance the appearance of your property for years to come, creating a classy first impression.
