Here is everything that you need to know about Tarmac driveway paving in Dublin.

What is Tarmac?

Tarmac, short for tarmacadam, is a material that’s made when a layer of crushed stone or aggregate is coated and mixed with tar. This mixture is laid and then compacted with a vibrating roller to form a smooth surface for your driveway. The surfaces are very quick to install and laying on a driveway is a very clean process.

Tarmac is a versatile driveway paving material that can be shaped and layed to suit any garden or area. When utilizing former garden space it is required to remove all surface materials and excavate to a suitable sub-soil depth. After the excavation, it is possible to cover the area with a quality hardcore fill with minimum of 100-150 mm; This hardcore fill is rolled and compacted solid. To improve the aesthetic of the surface, edging kerbs are fitted around the perimeter of the drive or path area. The surface is covered with a Tarmac Base Coat which is rolled and compacted into position. A further Tarmac Asphalt is laid and rolled over the surface to complete the job.

Most areas/drives are suitable for a tarmac resurface, and the results look fantastic. As well as this, tarmac is very durable and weather resistant, making it a perfect surface for the unpredictable weather in Ireland. It is no wonder why tarmac driveways are very popular in Dublin & Wicklow.

After choosing Kilcroney Paving to pave our backgarden and lay tarmac to the front garden, we knew we choose the right contractor. Having discussed what we wanted and with the input from Thomas the date was set to get working. From the very first visit from Thomas we knew he was professional, informative, experienced and very friendly and polite. His crew also were very friendly and more importantly superb at what they do. Apart from being extremely happy with the finished products, the standards and cleanliness was second to none. I reccommend Kilcrony Paving who also offer value for money. They have made us a very happy couple ready for the summer. The work was so good my dad has booked Kilcroney Paving to do his back garden.
Audrey McMillan
I cannot recommend Kilcroney Paving enough from first meeting Thomas to quote on the job right through to the finished driveway and back garden he and his team have been nothing but professional. They work extremely hard to get as much done within a day as possible and clean as they go so always leave the site as tidy as possible every evening. We are so happy with the transformation of our driveway and the work carried out we got the back of the house done also. Thanks so much Thomas to you and you’re team for doing such a wonderful job and for ensuring that I’ll never be down pulling weeds out of that old driveway ever again.
