Chip Seal Paving... A unique, and affordable alternative that continues to gain popularity
Tar and Chip, also referred to as Chip Seal driveways are a great driveway material choice. If you would like to keep the cost reasonable or want something more interesting and longer lasting than asphalt, then consider tar and chip. It is actually a driveway paving material that many people are unaware of. However, it is a great paving material choice. Made from a combination of asphalt and stone.
APPEARANCE AND DURABILITY TAR AND CHIP DRIVEWAYS HAVE A ROUGH SURFACE, SO IT DOES NOT GET SLIPPERY. THEREFORE, IT PROVIDES MORE TRACTION. TO ADD, IT'S TEXTURED, NICE TO LOOK AT, AND WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH JUST AS MUCH DURABILITY THAT WILL LAST AS LONG OR EVEN LONGER THAN ASPHALT!
INSTALLATION, FIRST, WE INSTALL A GRAVEL BASE, WE THEN APPLY A HOT LIQUID ASPHALT ON TOP OF THE GRAVEL. THE ASPHALT ADHERES TO THE GRAVEL BASE. LOOSE STONE IS THEN PUT DOWN OVER THE HOT TAR SO IT BECOMES EMBEDDED IN THE ASPHALT. THE STONES ARE THEN FIRMLY ROLLED INTO THE TAR.
MAINTENANCE. BECAUSE OF ITS UNIQUE PAVING PROCESS, WITH CHIP SEAL APPLICATIONS, YOU WON’T NEED A NEW SEAL-COATING EVERY YEAR, MAKING IT VERY LOW MAINTENANCE. IT ALSO ATTRACTS LESS HEAT THAN ASPHALT.
