Tarmac driveways are commonly used throughout the UK, as they provide an affordable and flexible solution that requires little ongoing maintenance. They use the same asphalt that is used on roads, which makes them extremely well suited to supporting the weight of numerous vehicles.
Professionally installed tarmac driveways require specialist tools, machinery and training. In many cases, asphalt driveways are one of the cheapest options available, can be costlier than alternatives if only a small space is required. This is because of the additional equipment required to carry out the work, compared to alternatives, such as block paving.
As specialist know-how and equipment is needed, a tarmac driveway installation is often better left to the professionals. Tarmac and asphalt drives are not commonly installed by DIY’ers.

Tarmac driveway cleaning
Cleaning your tarmac drive can ensure its longevity. As solvents can fall onto your drive whilst driving and parking your vehicles, it is a good idea to ensure your drive is kept clean. Solvents, such as petrol and oil, erode through tarmac, creating holes which will continue to grow.
For deep cleans, we recommend our professional tarmac cleaners. We use specialist equipment to ensure that your driveway is not damaged, whilst restoring it to a new appearance, free from any dirt and grime. For our tarmac cleaning services, please request a quote.
Whilst the material used to create these drives is referred to as tarmac, the process no longer uses tar, but instead uses bitumen, so the correct name for these driveways is a bitmac driveway.
