Tar & Chip Drives, Roads, & Surfacing in Stowmarket

So what exactly is Tar & Chip used for, and where can it be laid?

Tar and chip, also known as chip and tar or surface dressing, is a popular method of surfacing driveways and roads. It involves applying a layer of hot liquid bitumen (tar) to the prepared surface, followed by a layer of stone chips. The stone chips are then embedded into the asphalt, creating a textured finish. This method provides a durable, lasting and affordable surface suitable for both residential and commercial properties.

So How is Tar & Chip laid?

Laying a tar and chip surface begins with preparing the existing surface by cleaning it thoroughly and ensuring it is debris-free any low or damaged areas are then filled. Next, specialised machinery applies a layer of hot liquid bitumen evenly to the surface. Immediately after the bitumen application, stone chips of various sizes are spread over the surface. A roller then compacts the stone chips into the bitumen, creating a solid bond. Finally, any excess stone chips are swept away, leaving behind a beautiful, durable finished tar and chip surface.

Benefits of Tar & Chip Stowmarket

Tar and chip driveways offer several advantages over other surfacing options:

They are highly durable and resistant to weather and heavy traffic, making them ideal for areas with fluctuating temperatures like East Anglia.

Tar and chip surfaces have excellent traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls, especially during wet conditions.

Tar and chip driveways require minimal maintenance and are more cost-effective than alternatives like tarmac or block paving.

Drawbacks of Tar & Chip

While tar and chip driveways have numerous benefits, they also have drawbacks. One significant disadvantage is the initial appearance of the surface, which may not have the same smooth finish as tarmac or block paving.

Tar & Chip vs Tarmac

Both options have pros and cons when comparing tar and chip to tarmac. Tar and chip driveways offer a more natural and textured appearance compared to the uniform finish of tarmac. They also tend to be more resistant to cracking and fading over time. Tar and chip is much more affordable, offering the best option for large areas and roads such as stately houses or farms. However, tarmac driveways generally have a smoother surface.
