Our Installation Process

Our tarmac driveway installers in Leeds efficiently conduct the installation process in the following steps:

  1. Digging and clearing away the area to prepare the ground for the sub-base using suitable machinery.
  2. Cleaning away all the excavated waste, we make space for new material.
  3. Installing an edge to make sure the ground slopes correctly and supports the tarmac.
  4. Using bricks or kerb borders to strengthen the edge with concrete; we lay them on wet concrete to give extra support.
  5. Adding a special membrane to stop weeds and make everything stay in place.
  6. Adding a tough layer of crushed rocks to create a strong base.
  7. Applying the tarmac binder and surface course.
  8. Using a giant roller to press everything down.
  9. Sealing the spaces between layers.
