Tar bonded driveways are our specialism and the process is one that has been used for hundreds of years. All-natural stone is used in tar and chip surfacing, which makes it the ideal option for a country feel in Essex, for private properties and businesses alike.

Tar and chip driveways can be found at heritage properties and listed buildings and, in fact, it’s a popular choice across the whole of the southeast of England. But it doesn’t cost the earth and is by far the most cost-effective surfacing technique. 

With our professional approach and years of experience, we confidently believe that we can instantly transform the area that you’d like to be surfaced. We offer two tar and chip finishes; a lovely light brown pea shingle, with a very natural appearance, or a high-quality grey granite that looks professional. We are happy to advise on what would best suit the area to be surfaced.

How we do surface dressing

To explain the process, firstly we prepare the surface ensuring no potholes or loose stones are visible, particularly working on areas where the existing surface has deteriorated over time. Then we cover the surface with an application of hot bitumen liquid tar, followed instantly with either the gold pea shingle – for that lovely natural look and country feel – or grey granite aggregate, which is a popular choice for commercial areas.

Being extremely thorough in our preparation and only using the highest quality tar, means that your new surface will look great for years to come and we would be delighted to be the ones to install it for you. From us you will get the most professional and efficient service throughout the job, as well as an end result of the very best quality.
