Tarmac is one of the cheapest, yet effective ways of laying a new driveway or patio. However, it does need to be laid by professionals using specialist machinery, tools and materials of the highest quality. For this reason, it is most certainly not a DIY job. In our years in the business, we have seen low quality tarmac driveways that have been laid by inexperienced companies, and even the homeowners themselves. The result is a driveway that lasts for weeks, and at the most months. When you are investing in a new driveway for your home or business, you want it to last for decades.
