Surface Dressing, or 'Tar and Chip' is an ideal way to rejuvenate a tired looking tarmac driveway, or give your property a more 'rural' feel.
The process consitists of three main steps:
You can choose the type and colour of chippings you want as your surface dressing - from small gravel all the way up to large granite chips. We can apply the perfect coating to fit in with your property.
Tar and chip surface dressing is less expensive than replacing the tarmac on a driveway. The chippings afford excellent traction as the rough finish of individual stones remains 'grippy' in all conditions. Plain tarmac, on the other hand, can often become slippery when exposed to wet conditions.
Surface dressed tar and chip driveways are low maintenance and stay looking great for many years. They help create a softer, less industrial look to your property, whilst also adding to the safety and usability of your drive.
Drivewise Paving can apply a surface dressing to any existing tarmac driveway, or over a prepared sub-base. Both domestic and commercial surfaces can be improved - private roads, industrial parks, caravan sites and holiday parks are all common clients for this type of finish.
