High Quality Tarmac Driveways in Derby & Surrounding

The driveway is usually the first part of your home that visitors will see, particularly if they arrive by car. If your current driveway is in need of badly needed attention, you should consider getting in touch with the Unique Drives & Patios Ltd, a reputable local installer of tarmac driveways in Derby.

Tarmac driveways are known for their ease of installation, exceptional durability and neat appearance, making tarmac an excellent choice. Our high quality tarmac drives also have the added benefits of being waterproof, easy to maintain, smooth to drive upon and safe for pedestrians.

Meticulous Preparation

Laid by our highly experienced team, Unique Drives & Patios Ltd drives will meet all of your expectations and, in most cases, exceed them. This is because we adhere to a thorough preparation schedule, making use of only high grade materials. You can rest assured that each and every one of our tarmac driveways in Derby receives our full care and attention. Our strong work ethic forms the basis of our excellent local reputation, and this is evident in every project we undertake.

Premium quality tarmac drives require thorough preparation beforehand.

First, the ground must be excavated to a suitable depth to form a strong foundation. We dig out to the specified 250mm depth and remove all debris from site to leave your entrance looking neat and tidy. We then put down a geotex membrane, to keep the weeds at bay, before laying and mechanically compressing 100 to 150mm of MOT Grade 1 aggregate. Only then do we apply the tarmac, starting with a 50mm layer of course tarmac, containing larger stones. Finally, we add a layer of fine or ‘topping tarmac,’ consisting of smaller stones. This 30mm layer is mechanically compressed to create the smooth, attractive surface that we all associate with a properly laid tarmac drive.
