Having a beautiful and well maintained driveway should be a priority for homeowners. Even if you own a gorgeous home, a crumbling driveway will lower the curb appeal. Signs it is time to redo or replace your driveway include cracks, potholes, drainage issues, fading or rough appearance, or it is extremely old.
Every type of driveway will eventually need to be repaired or replaced at some point. Cooper Paving is one of the top paving contractors in Annapolis, MD that offer many options for redoing or replacing your driveway.
Tar and Chip Driveways in Anne Arundel County
People who enjoy the look of loose stone should consider a tar and chip driveway. It offers good traction, high curb appeal, and requires less maintenance than other options. It is a low cost alternative to asphalt paving and offers a more solid surface than gravel. Tar and chip surfaces are not required to be sealed, and draw in less heat than blacktop paving. Tar and chip surfaces are amazing and can make your property look stunning.
With this option, there are many colors and style options to choose from to best match your house or property. You can choose just plain stone or go for a more decorative stone choice. The most popular colors we use are reds, browns and tans. There are also many different shapes available. You are able to combine the colors and shape to customize your look. The possibilities really are endless.
Tar and Chip Process
Tar and chip is a paving process that combines crushed stone and liquid asphalt to create a durable, natural looking driving surface. It is a fairly simple process to install tar and chip. First our paving experts at Cooper Paving will layer the ground with gravel. Then hot liquid asphalt will be spread over top of that.
Small stones of your choice are then spread over top of the hot tar. Eventually the stone will settle into the tar creating a stunning paved surface. You can expect your new driveway to last about 7-10 years. There is no regular maintenance involved in having a tar and chip driveway.
The only down side to this type of driveway is it is very difficult to remove snow from. A snow plow can easily damage the surface so you much use caution when with snow removal.
