Tarmac is a clean, low maintenance option for your driveway in Dublin. We supply and install both tarmacadam and asphalt. Tarmac is popular for driveways, high traffic areas and commercial projects. Asphalt is popular for driveways as it provides a slightly smoother and aesthetically pleasing finish.
Tarmac Driveways installation:
Preparation is key to ensure a lasting tarmac driveway project. Many poorly laid tarmac driveways will end up sinking and holding water due to poor ground preparation. Firstly we may need to remove the existing driveway surface to a sufficient depth. We will lay 804 hardcore, level it, and compact it very well to ensure no sinking well into the future. The quality of the tarmac is also of vital importance and directly proportional to its longevity. Hence, we use only the best suppliers such as Roadstone,based in Dublin.
Depending on your design, at this stage we will install and any border or design you have chosen. Then we lay the tarmac or asphalt while it is hot. We spread it evenly at a good thickness using rakes. Then we carry out the initial rolling with a hand roller to get a smooth finish. Finally, we compact it using a large roller or plate compactor depending on the area.
Tarmac Driveway Designs:
To add a unique element to your tarmac driveway project you may choose to add a design. We have a wide range of options for borders, circles, diamonds and much more.

We offer free call outs where we will survey the area and offer you advice regarding your options. We will assess the current drainage situation and advise you if you will need additional drainage in the area prior to laying the tarmac or asphalt to ensure no water lodges when the project is complete.
