Road Construction Contractors in Glasgow

We are road construction contractors in Glasgow. We use both asphalt and tarmac to construct roads. Nowadays the most common materials used for paving roads are asphalt and concrete. Before building a road, there will be a long consultation that will allow you and road experts to decide on what materials you should be using. Factors such as cost and type and amount of traffic will determine which material will be used.

At RM Kennedy and Sons we often use Asphalt. This solution uses an oil-based substance called bitumen to make sand and crushed rock stick together like glue. Asphalt can be heated to about 300° F. Our construction team will bring it to your site and spread and compact it onto the foundation already in place.

When gravel surface dressing is applied by a professional it looks incredibly impressive. This is why many hotels, B&Bs and other home businesses choose a gravel driveway. With the right care and maintenance, gravel surface dressing can last a long time. This can need renewing every 10 years or so, depending on use.

Tar-and-Chip Pathway/Driveway

Building a tar-and-chip pathway or driveway is a pretty simple if you are a surfacing contractor. You must have the appropriate materials and equipment to complete this job. Handling these materials can be extremely dangerous if you are not trained to use them. At RM Kennedy and Sons we use a gravel base.

Once the base has been applied we will use hot liquid asphalt which is poured over the gravel. Our experts will then coat this layer with loose stones. We will them use our machinery to roll the asphalt to form the finish surface. 

The main benefit of using Tar-and-chip is that it can be installed over existing driveway materials, however, this does depend on the driveway being in reasonably good shape.

Maintaining Tar and Chip

There is no art to maintaining a tar-and-chip driveway or road unlike asphalt, it doesn't have to be sealed regularly. If you live in an area which is affected by snow, snow removal can create problems. Avoid using a snowplough to clear the driveway during this time as it may damage the surface.
If you do plan on maintaining your tar and chip installation, for best results, just get rid of the snow on driveway surface. Try to remove the excess with a shovel or just wait for it to melt away. New paragraph
