What is Tarmacadam?

Tarmacadam is a type of material used on roads, sports courts, driveways and a range of other areas. Tarmacadam surfaces may also be known as tarmac, macadam, asphalt and Bitmac.

The tarmacadam specification is a mixture of stone and tar, which creates a smooth surface for people to drive, walk, and play sports.

It is common for asphalt surfaces to undergo anti slip painting. A layer of coloured coating is applied to the surface to improve slip resistance and overall appearance.

This is usually done on sports surfaces and roadways.

Tarmac is a durable surface type that requires very little maintenance, making it perfect for various establishments, including schools, domestic homes and roads near me.

Is Macadam the Same As Tarmac?

The difference between tarmac and macadam as nouns is that tarmac is a bituminous road surface. In contrast, macadam is (uncountable) a road surface made up of crushed stone layers, usually tar-coated for modern traffic.

Do I Need Planning Permission for a Tarmac Driveway?

Traditional, impermeable roads that do not allow water to run to a permeable area will require planning approval if the surface to be covered is larger than five square metres.

How to Lay Tarmac Near Me

No matter if you're installing a roadway, driveway or sports court, the method of how to lay tarmac is generally the same for each facility:

  1. Excavate the existing surfacing to the required levels

  2. Stone up to the correct depth

  3. Lay down the asphalt surfacing

  4. Colour coat and add line-markings onto the surface if necessary

How Long After Tarmac Is Laid Can You Drive on It?

You should not drive on your newly surfaced driveway for the first three days after the installation as a precaution.

The tarmac will still be at its softest during this time, and any heavy vehicular traffic could cause indentations and further tarmac damage.
