Why Tarmacking a Drive is the Answer

In a domestic setting, there are many reasons why tarmacking a drive is the best option. In most cases, the purpose of a tarmac driveway is to provide a clear, smooth space for vehicles to be parked, or it may be to give the front entrance of a house a tidy and sleek design. It can be, however, to make a home more accessible for someone who struggles with mobility or is in a wheelchair. Throughout Scotland, there are many homes that come with large front gardens, some of which are on an incline and perhaps have steps leading either to the grounds or to the house. In all of these situations, a tarmac driveway will make getting in and out of the house a lot easier.

Tarmac Driveway Options

RM Kennedy & Sons offer tarmac, asphalt and tar-and-chip drives. All of these materials are long lasting and are attractive, the choice of which is yours. For a more durable drive, consider tarmac and asphalt as they are more permeable than alternative driveway materials. These materials are effective in UK driveways as water drains easily through the surface which is essential considering the amount of rainfall in the country. More a more aesthetically pleasing driveway, you could opt for tar-and-chip. This type of drive is better for wetter countries as tarmac and asphalt can be slippery when wet. For those with mobility issues and who are tarmacking a drive for easier access, tar-and-chip could be the better option if you live in an area, such as Glasgow, where rain is consistent.
