TAR AND CHIP INSTALLATIONS CORK
Tar and chip can be used on any type of driveway including larger driveway areas, car parks, private roadways and laneways.
We use our own machinery to lay down the hot tar and chip which ensures no delay or reliance on any 3rd party contractor.
Hot tar and chip is applied by spraying down a minimum of 2 layers of hot tar which is covered over by a chipping finish which is rolled into the hot bitumen.
LAYING TAR AND CHIP IN CORK
The process is quite simple but it does require the correct machinery and experience at laying it otherwise, it can easily unravel at an early stage.
We firstly on base foundation installations will always grade off the driveway using our digger, this ensures a solid and level finish for the new application. We also ensure there are no weak spots or potholes.
If its on top of an existing surface, we will always clean that surface off ensuring no debris or weeds are left on on it. This ensures a good bonding between the old and the new.
We will then apply a hot bitumen to the surface. Sometimes depending on the area, we might apply two coats or even three coats. This will depend on the type of surface and what we feel will give the best performance. This is done in consultation with our engineers.
A chip of your choosing will then be applied over the hot tar. This needs to be done whilst the bitumen is still piping hot to ensure it bonds in with the chip.
Once we have applied a couple of layers of chip which again depends on how much tar was applied, we will machine power roll the chip into the driveway.
At this stage, the new driveway is good to be used, however, you might still have some loose chips which will fade off over time leaving you with a nice solid new tar and chip driveway in Cork.
