Further Information

While tar bonded surfacing comes under many guises and is also referred to as tar and stone, tar and chippings, tar and granite; we simply call it tar and chip. We’ve applied tar and chip to a whole range of properties, including at smallholdings, farm roads, commercial driveways, car parks and large areas. Wherever you are in Suffolk, and whatever size job you desire, our tar and chip finish can be applied to any type of existing surface.

For the installation process, we firstly ensure that there aren’t any potholes or loose stones, particularly focusing on areas where the existing surface has deteriorated over time. Secondly, an application of hot bitumen liquid tar, with either the gold pea shingle or grey granite aggregate going immediately on top of the tar. Perhaps the best part is that, once installed, the maintenance is so low that you won’t need to do a thing yourself.
