Installed correctly, Tarmac is renowned for its versatility, durability and longevity, and is suitable for both driveways and forecourts. The installation process is as follows:
Area to be excavated to approximately 150 – 200mm and all debris to be removed from site.
The excavated area to be compacted, digging out any soft spots and filling them with new sub-base material.
A Permeable Geotext Membrane will be placed over the excavated area, and backfilled with MOT (Ministry of Transport) Type 1 Roadstone, and mechanically compacted to the correct levels.
A Base Course of Tarmac with an aggregate size of approximately 20mm will be compacted on top of the MOT Type 1, followed by a wearing course of Tarmac which contains smaller aggregates and is intended to give a finer, smoother finish. This will all be mechanically rolled to the correct levels and falls. All Tarmac will be delivered in insulated lorries to ensure the correct temperature is maintained whilst in transit.
It may be necessary to install an edge restraint such as a soldier course of block paving to the entire outer perimeter, restraining the newly laid tarmac.
