Tarmac is a very hard wearing marital which will not sink, spread or heave if laid correctly at the right depths and using the correct sub base materials.
Tarmac has come back in to fashion for driveways over recent years because of the flexibility of the product. We have many different boarder options ranging from a block paving border right through to imprinted concrete borders. We also can incorporate any other paving product designs within the tarmacadam, the results are truly stunning.
All our tarmacadam installations are laid to the highest of standards, with total care & craftsmanship, laid on the correct sub-base with a surface coat of Tarmac and grannite for extra durability, you will admire your driveway for many years to come.

We recommend at Trojan driveways, that the sub base is the first thing that needs to be correct, then once the sub base is at the correct depth, edging restraints need to be in place. Once the ground work has been done correctly, there should be at least 50mm of base coat tarmac using 20mm aggregate. Then there should be 25mm of wearing corse, which we choose granite as the aggregate of choice.
Yes. There are many different grades of tarmac. Tarmac basically is bitumen mixed with aggregate. Some aggregates are harder wearing than others. At Trojan we only use granite for the wearing course.
Yes over time it will weather and fade and gently turn to a pale grey colour.
Yes tarmac can be mixed with colour pigment to change the colour of the ash felt.
That depends on the paving company/ driveway company or contractor. There will allways be companies who are willing to do your work cheaply so useful factors to remember are the depths, the edging restraints and the type of tarmac that will be used. These factors will play a big part of the overall price of tarmac.
Yes, one of the most important things for a good hard standing new tarmac driveway is the use of edging restraints. We have always used some form of edging for many years, but in recent years customers have requested brick, block, Indian stone, resin and imprinted concrete to be used as a border option for the tarmac.
Thank you again Trojan, our new tamac driveway looks amazing! Great credit to Chris for coming up with the design of Indian stone feature and borders. Also the workmen, clean, tidy, punctual & extremely professional.Andrew Weston, Stoke-on-Trent

I'd like to start by saying thank you to Adrian for all the effort he has put in the driveway and patio areas around the property. The old English cobble sets really finish of the imprinted concrete, we are also delighted with the tarmac entrance he designed for us. All the workmen where very polite and professional.Mr & Mrs Cheadle, Newcastle Under Lyme
