TAR & CHIP

Excellent for farm lanes, common drives, or if you would just like a rustic touch. This type of driveway has a rough surface so that it does not get slippery and provides greater traction. 

It is a combination of asphalt and stone. A gravel base is installed. Then, hot liquid asphalt is applied on top of the gravel. The asphalt adheres to the gravel base. Loose stone is then put down over the hot tar, so that it becomes embedded in the asphalt. The stones are then firmly rolled into the tar.

This makes for a creative and interesting paving surface. It is an excellent surface for farm lanes, common drives, or even if you would just like a rustic touch. This type of driveway has a rough surface, so that it does not get slippery. Therefore it provides more traction.

It is less expensive than asphalt. You can expect to pay around half the price of asphalt. No sealing is necessary so maintenance is easy.
