When you contact our tarmacadam driveways team, we will be able to explore the material that best suits your needs in greater detail, but until then, here is a quick run-down of the fitting process, and the varying benefits of these discrete tarmacadam driveways materials: 

Tarmac and Asphalt  

If you’re looking for tarmacadam driveways that will stand the test of time, it would be best to consider the plenitude of advantages in opting for the Tarmac and Asphalt material. A durable substance, Tarmac and Asphalt is strong enough to withstand the wear and tear that tarmacadam driveways are subjected to daily. This is due to the flexible nature of the material, making it less likely to break. Indeed, experts in the asphalt driveway installation sector estimate that this material can in fact last from twelve years, to anywhere up to thirty-five with the right care and attention. Moreover, in terms of maintenance, the requirements for Tarmac and Asphalt driveways are relatively low. Specialists, and we ourselves would recommend that clients who opt for this material clean the tarmacadam driveway twice a year to keep it in the best possible condition. In order to thoroughly clean your tarmac driveway, clients need only to use a stiff brush or hose in order to clear away any debris or dirt that will naturally build up over time, in order to prevent future difficulties. Aside from this low level of maintenance, Tarmac and Asphalt are highly attractive materials. With its long lifespan, Tarmac and Asphalt boast the performance of concrete, while costing but a fraction of the price- experts agree that the cost of laying Tarmac and Asphalt can cost clients up to fifty percent less than concrete. 

As driveway contractors, we also provide coloured tarmac drives, although it should be noted by clients that these cost more than the standard black pigment. Moreover, unlike concrete, Tarmac and Asphalt are permeable materials, allowing water to drain easily through the surface- a fact which makes these materials hugely popular across the UK. The Tarmac and Asphalt installation process is a simple, and relatively fast one- it is initially applied as a hot liquid to a pre-existing surface, after which the mixture is left to cool down and set. For many clients, it is the smooth and well-kept final appearance of a Tarmac and Asphalt driveway that is most attractive. Find our more about tarmac laying here.


Hiring driveway contractors means that the job will be completed in no time at all. If you are looking for tarmac for driveways. Another beautiful driveway option that we at RM Kennedy & Sons offer our clients is a tarmac chippings driveway. While this option is aesthetically pleasing for many customers, it must be stated that this type of driveway has a significantly shorter lifespan than that of a Tarmac and Asphalt driveway. On average, a Tar-and-Chip driveway will last between seven and ten years before it needs to be resurfaced. Yet on the plus side, should clients choose this particular material for their driveway, it requires next to no maintenance. Moreover, as a material, Tar-and-Chip is somewhat safer than Tarmac and Asphalt. For Glasgow driveways, the ability to withstand adverse weather conditions is absolutely essential! Indeed, by opting for Tar-and-Chip material, clients may find themselves in better footing during the winter months, when Tarmac and Asphalt can be somewhat slippery, and therefore dangerous. Similar to the Tarmac and Asphalt application, the installation of a Tar-and-Chip is quick and pain-free, although good weather conditions are an absolute must! As such, we generally fit these driveways during the summer in order to ensure dry conditions. The hot liquid Asphalt sticks best to dry, warm surfaces. After this is applied to the surface area, it is essential that the chips are scattered over the Asphalt within one to two minutes, in order to prevent the liquid solidifying. The option of a Tar-and-Chip driveway is on average less expensive than that of a Tarmac and Asphalt, and for many the scattered stone effect is more attractive and more easily maintained.
