Tips and Tricks When Laying Tarmac

Laying tarmac is certainly no business for a day-to-day DIY practitioner since it requires a lot of skill, expertise and knowledge to do it correctly. If you choose cheap labor over an experienced worker, with your tarmac road you can't expect perfection. Here are a few tips and tricks in laying the tarmac...

Get Your Neighbours Involved

It is no secret that tarmac is one of the cheapest material to use in paving the area–but at a certain size it becomes much cheaper. Sometimes your driveway alone may not be sufficient to make a trade because of machinery and costs, but if you get along with a driving neighbor who can also use some TLC, both of you are sure to save some cash.

Layers

Like any other road, the construction involves many different layers and everything begins with the foundations. Excavations are usually 16-18 cm deep and then the base is applied and rounded with a road roller. After this, curb edging stones are added to support the tarmac during laying.

Tarmac is usually laid in two layers, the first being the foundation and the second being the course of' wearing.' Usually the first layer is more aggregated and must be brought in a heated lorry to the building site. After this is poured into the scooping area, the tarmac is spread over and flattened with rakes, then the road roller is repeated till the surface of the tarmac is no longer indented.
