What is Tarmac Road Surfacing?
Tarmac, short for tarmacadam, is a unique blend of layered stones bound by tar or bitumen. Named after John McAdam, the inventor of the road construction method, tarmac is a tried and tested material designed to deliver high-performance road surfaces. But what exactly does tarmac road surfacing include, and what makes it a top choice for many? Let’s delve a little deeper.
Description of Tarmac as a Material
Tarmac comprises crushed stones coated in a sticky layer of tar or bitumen. This composition makes tarmac a highly versatile, adaptable, and resilient material. It offers a sturdy and smooth surfacing solution perfect for withstanding various loads and applications, from light residential use to heavy commercial traffic.
The Road Surfacing Process
We follow a thorough and efficient process to ensure the highest quality of tarmac road surfacing. To begin with, we prepare the base layer to provide a solid foundation. The tarmac is laid in layers, each appropriately rolled to obtain an even and consistent surface. We finish with a final layer of fine aggregate, giving the road a smart, clean, and professional appearance.
Advantages of Tarmac
Tarmac road surfacing boasts impressive benefits, making it an excellent choice for many.
- Durability: Tarmac is resistant to heavy loads and impact damage, thereby holding up to the daily wear and tear of traffic.
- Cost-Effectiveness: As a relatively low-cost material, tarmac is an enticing option for those looking for a budget-friendly yet high-quality surfacing solution.
- Low Maintenance: Given its resistance to weather conditions and damage, tarmac roads require significantly fewer repairs and maintenance efforts than other materials.
We’re proud to offer tarmac road surfacing as part of our comprehensive suite of services. With its many benefits, we believe tarmac is a reliable choice for many surfacing projects. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information or to discuss your specific surfacing needs.
