The tarmacadam mixture is laid while hot and viscous, levelled and compacted, and then allowed to cool so that it binds to form a solid, hard-wearing surface.
Wherever possible, tarmacadam driveways should be laid using a suitable paving machine as this ensures the best compression and therefore finish.
Sometimes it is not possible to use a machine in areas such as small garden paths, but your contractor will use alternative methods.
