Completed Tarmacadam Driveway shadow


Tarmacadam and Asphalt Driveways

Tarmacadam ('Tarmac') has traditionally been regarded as a practical, durable and attractive driveway surfacing. Modern formulations and heavy duty SMA (stone mastic asphalt) ensure a hard wearing surface expected to last in excess of 25 years under normal domestic conditions.

ESC Surfacing are specialists in domestic Tarmac (Tarmacadam) Driveways. We can design and construct your drive from scratch, or replace, repair or resurface your existing Driveway.
A site visit and written quotation is free and we always advise on the best options and specification depending on your requirements.

Concrete Driveway: Wokingham Berkshire - Complete replacement of shared drive, finished with Tarmac surface

This shared concrete drive had severe cracks and subsidence meaning a Tarmacadam 'overlay' would not be practical. Complete removal and replacement was necessary with a heavy duty SMA (Stone Mastic Asphalt) surface for additional longevity.



Domestic Driveway Replacement: Caversham, Reading - Re-design, extending and side pathway construction

At almost 30 years old this driveway (below) had a deteriorated surface, sub-base and drainage problems. The customer requested an extension of the drive onto the lawn area, paver block edgings and an additional drain to prevent a problem with surface water which had been pooling by the front door. A 6mm sized aggregate Tarmac was used and white granite chips were rolled into the surface for decoration.
