At RM Kennedy & Sons, we have a reputation for excellence when it comes to laying tarmac. It's a reputation we have worked hard to build and one that we work even harder to maintain. Our team of tarmacking specialists have been part of this industry for over 100 years, ensuring quality work every time.
We provide tarmacking solutions for domestic customers and commercial clients alike. We operate a nationwide tarmacking company, covering Glasgow, East Kilbride, Edinburgh, Dundee, Carlisle, Newcastle upon Tyne, Falkirk, Kilmarnock, Dunfermline, Berwick upon Tweed and throughout the surrounding areas.
With decades of experience in laying tarmac, we have much to offer our customers across the country. Here is just a few of our more popular services.
High Quality Tarmac
Tarmac is an extremely versatile surfacing material with dozens of applications. At RM Kennedy & Sons, we use only the best tarmac, specially-formulated for its durability. This tarmac and asphalt mix is hard-wearing and long-lasting, the perfect material for starting new projects and patching old ones. Whatever your tarmacking needs, we have the solution for you.
We offer a couple of different tarmacking solutions for domestic and commercial driveways. These are tarmac and asphalt for a long-lasting driveway, and tar and chip for less durable, but more attractive driveways. Both are installed to the highest standard, based on your specific requirements. For more information, check out our detailed Driveways page elsewhere on this site.
Tarmac patios are laid much like tarmac driveways. Quicker to install than traditional concrete and block paving, tarmac is also a more versatile material for patios. As well as laying the tarmac patio for you, we will design the perfect patio based on your suggestions. This way, our team of experienced tarmacking professionals can produce your dream patio.
Tarmac has so many uses outside of roads, driveways and patios, that it’s no wonder it's such a popular surfacing material. At RM Kennedy & Sons, we have put it to all manner of uses across the country. It’s ideal for car parks, play areas, paths, outside smoking areas, fire assembly points, and more.
As hardy a material as it is, even tarmac doesn't last forever. After years of use and thousands of cars traveling over it, it needs touching up. Usually a stretch of tarmac starts to give way at the edges. Tarmac resurfacing gives the whole area a fresh layer of tarmac, with particular attention being paid to the sides.
More Services That We Provide
Not every damaged or deteriorated stretch of tarmac in Glasgow needs a complete resurfacing job. Sometimes, it’s enough to fill and patch any dips, divots, or potholes. Our tarmacking experts will take a look and determine the best course of action for you. Where we can repair a given section of tarmac, we will do so.View Gallery

Hard landscaping refers to the foundation or groundwork of any major landscaping project. It covers the design of the project, drainage and irrigation requirements, foundations and footings, and more. It is the stuff you don't see in a landscaped garden, the bits below the topsoil and greenery. Tarmac is a versatile and malleable way to achieve this.View Gallery
