Our highly porous Crushed Tarmac is the perfect material for tracks, driveway bases, stable hardstanding, and road surface dressing. If you want to build a sturdy driveway and parking area at the forefront of your house, then Landscapers will use Crushed Tarmac to create a sturdy, hard layer.
What is Crushed Tarmac?
Crushed Tarmac is an aggregate derived from a cold milling machine. This milling machine gets rid of the surface layer of a paved area such as a road or pavement. The waste that remains after is moved into a lorry as road planings. This Crushed Tarmac is perfect for projects where functionality and strength take precedence over visual appeal. For the most part, Crushed Tarmac is a very affordable material and does not require any maintenance.
Where to Use Crushed Tarmac
As we mentioned above, Crushed Tarmac is very adaptable and can be used in a wide range of Landscaping situations. That being said, this aggregate is mostly used for areas like driveways, roads, building sub-bases, hard-standings, farm tracks and more. As you can tell by the examples given, Crushed Tarmac is the most appropriate for surfaces that need to be sturdy and that will see a lot of footfall and traffic.
Areas that are more focused on utility and durability rather than looking aesthetically pleasing, are the areas where Crushed Tarmac is more commonly used. For example, in corporate parking lots or even a home driveway that is busy, you would rather have a surface that is long-lasting and stable rather than something more decorative, which is when Crushed Tarmac will come in handy.
Crushed Tarmac V Gravel Paving
1. Cost - As a material, Crushed Tarmac is far more affordable than gravel, therefore if you are having to renovate a large area, the Tarmac will be more cost-effective.
2. Sustainability - Crushed Tarmac millings are definitely more sustainable that gravel due to the fact that it is long-lasting and eco-friendly. Because Tarmac is more durable you are required to refurbish it far less often.
3. Maintenance - Crushed Tarmac requires literally zero maintenance. Therefore for a driveway for a corporate building or a home parking driveway, you don't have to worry about constant upkeeping. Once the paving has been laid, that's the end of the story. On the same note, Tarmac is very easy to install and can be done fairly quickly, which will not only save you time but will also save you money if you outsource it.
4. Weather-Resistant - Finally, if you live in an area with erratic weather, you need not worry about Tarmac because it can resist all kinds of extreme weather without being damaged, therefore you can lay down the tarmac and not worry about it for many months to come.
