We have been really busy with our roofing division this winter as always! The bad weather and rain always encourages roofing in disrepair to leak so we get a flurry of calls and our experienced team gets to work.
If you need roofing services in Bridgwater, Bath, Taunton, Exeter, Weston or any of the surrounding towns and villages then please check us out.
Of course our guys on the groundworks after a nice Christmas break are back building driveways and patios. They will work in most weathers if the work type allows but of course sometimes you just cant help what the good old British climate throws at us.
We are taking more orders for any kind of landscaping work whether a domestic property or commercial and will be happy to speak to you to discuss.
Please check your local branch on google by following these links below.
We have a new service this year, we can now pick up your waste with our grab lorries. We have a couple of lorries avialable and this is a very affordable way of removing unwanted soil, rubble, renovation rubbish, general rubbish and much more.
It is much cheaper than a skip and you can get over twice as much weight lifted so aslong as we have access we can help call us today.
A driveway is one of the most important features of your home. Whether you live in the city or in the country, you want to make sure that your house looks nice and well-kept on the outside. However, if you have never had someone put in a driveway before, you may not know what questions to ask the tarmac contractors to ensure that your driveway will be installed professionally and properly. This page talks about some of the considerations needed and how we’ve addressed these as a company.
Everything About Tarmac Driveways
No matter the size of your project, there are a few key things you should know before hiring a tarmac contractor. There are several different types of tarmacing and each type has its own pros and cons. First of all, it’s important to understand that when tarmac is installed on top of an existing driveway (or parking lot), it creates a seamless surface that looks more professional than a regular gravel or stone driveway.
For example, tarmacing helps prevent potholes from forming by eliminating gravel and uneven terrain that would normally attract water; in fact, when done correctly, the process should actually help protect against water damage by covering concrete. Another option for tarmac contractors is installing asphalt over concrete. While not as common as replacing an old driveway with new tarmac, you can also start fresh by removing the previous driveway and installing new concrete. This method works well if your current surface isn’t structurally sound—say, if there are cracks or other structural issues. The final thing to consider is how long your new drive will last. This depends largely on what type of material was used for installation—in most cases, asphalt will last longer than bitumen—but can also be affected by other factors like weather conditions and maintenance.
Facts About Tar and Asphalt
Tar and asphalt are both made from a blend of hydrocarbons. Asphalt is generally bitumen mixed with gravel, but tar is a coal tar derivative used for waterproofing and road tarmacing. Tar creates black streaks on your driveways or roads when it doesn’t set properly or isn’t maintained well; asphalt has fewer additives and produces a smoother surface on your driveway. However, asphalt costs more than tar as there are additional production steps that involve mixing cement with other compounds like granite sand. The end result is typically only minor differences between asphalt and tar, depending on how they’re used, but both options can be great additions to your driveway or road if installed correctly by a professional contractor with experience in the field.
What People Want from their Tarmac Driveways
Tarmac driveways are more common in the UK and Ireland, but they’re becoming increasingly popular in other countries too. We typically charge anywhere from £6-£20 per square foot; the exact price varies depending on the size of your property, the area where you live, etc but we’ll make these very clear before we begin any project.. As far as quality goes, expect something that’s pretty similar to asphalt; the tarmac will be dark grey when wet but darker and almost black when dry. It should also be noted that tarmac driveways aren’t quite as durable as concrete or asphalt. They can crack or break over time if not properly maintained, but we cover our work with a guarantee for peace of mind.
Green tar or Black tarmac driveways?
Green tar is one of our favourite colours to lay because it looks fantastic, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have its downsides. Tar comes in two colours – black and green. The choice often comes down to aesthetic preferences; while black tarmac tends to be cheaper, green offers better UV protection, meaning it will retain its colour for longer. The other upside to green tar is that it has a longer lifespan – up to five years – compared with three or four for black. Some people choose green tar because they have lawns around their driveways; if you have a lawn and want something which will be easier on your grass, then opt for green tarmac instead of black.
The Cost of Asphalt Road Tarmacing
Asphalt costs vary depending on the location and the size of the project, but commercial projects often have a tight timeline and budget. If your business is paving its parking lot or driveway, for example, it’s important to establish a budget and stick with it. You may have to forego decorative designs or opt for a less expensive form of asphalt known as asphalt concrete instead of traditional asphalt. Another common challenge when paving an asphalt road is weather delays. Road tarmacing needs to be done during dry weather; otherwise, if there are water issues or other concerns, work can be postponed until conditions improve. Weather issues also cause potential complications in coordinating schedules with contractors and other professionals who might be involved in such projects but we have a project manager on hand to handle this for you.
Quality Control in resurfacing roads – How it works!
Road tarmacing is one of those things that’s easy to do, but pretty hard to do well. If a contractor does a poor job resurfacing your road or parking lot, it can create a whole host of problems for your business. We have quality control measures in place that ensure each project meets professional standards, but here are some things you should look for when evaluating if a contractor can deliver great results… #1 – Are they properly insured? All good tarmac contractors will have public liability insurance. This covers them against any accidents or damage they might cause during work on your property. It also protects you against any injuries their employees might suffer while working on your site (and vice versa). But don’t just take their word for it—ask to see proof! Some other things to check would be worker’s compensation and vehicle insurance, we have them all.
