What is Tarmacadam The Scottish Borders?
Tarmac is a short term for the word Tarmacadam. This may be used for a number of surfaces driveways, roads, Forecourts etc and is very popular for commercial factorys, commercial units industrial estates etc and domestic driveways, estate drives, farm roads etc as well as their surrounding areas. Tarmac surfacing is available in various colours for tarmac this can either be Red or Black, however as you would expect standard black macadam is the cheapest since no added pigments will be needed. This is often used as an alternative to other designs such as block paving but it depends on what you would like to have. Tarmacadam is a strong, durable low maintenance surface which is long lasting and can be permeable. The permeable qualities means that rain water can drain through the surface easily, meaning there will be less water build up. Tarmac driveways are easy to maintain and clean, which is why they are very popular throughout the UK.

Coloured Tarmac Driveways in The Scottish Borders
Tarmac resurfacing is one of the most commonly used surfaces in the UK because it is relatively cheap to lay compared to imprinted concrete or block paving. It is used for domestic driveways and also for many commercial surfaces such as car parks, school playgrounds and tennis courts can all benefit from a application of tarmac.
Any tarmac surface will dry out over time with constant exposure to sunlight and other weather conditions. Frost can also result in cracks appearing in places due to the expansion and contraction of the surface. Tarmac is by far the cheapest and best option before considering digging up and replacing a new tarmac driveway or car park.
