What is Tarmacadam Surfacing?
Tarmacadam Surfacing (Tarmac) is a material which combines a mixture of road stones and traditionally tar, where tar is used as the binding substance to hold the stones together and create a non porous surface. Modern methods use bitumen in place of tar.
Tarmacadam Surface Preparation
Before Tarmac surfacing can be laid, a sub surface of compacted hardcore aggregate is recommended to create a solid base for the Tarmacadam surfacing installation, once the Tarmac has been put in place it is then rolled to create a level, smooth surface which will last for years to come. It is also recommended that a suitable drainage channel is installed to deal with the surface run off.
What do we do?
L&P Building Services have completed many successful projects using Tarmacadam surfacing, we do large and small jobs from car parks and roads to driveway edge and pot hole repairs. Tarmacacadam is an ideal surface for roads, paths and driveways.
