Driveways

Tarmac Driveways

At Advanced Contractors, we offer a full range of tarmac driveways. From pathways and driveways to full roadways, we can provide Tarmac (asphalt) for all types of projects. We can also add drop kerbs, drainage channels, and provide white lining to mark parking spaces.

Tarmac is one of the cost effective and most popular driveway surfaces, both in material and installation costs. A tarmacadam drive is a strong, durable surfacing that can last a long time with very little upkeep. It is a porous material which means water can flow in and out of the surface to stop flooding. You may need to sweep your drive occasionally to reduce the build-up of dirt and contaminants which will prevent it from getting clogged and no longer porous. Macadam-drives can be a great option as it gives a simple, clean design that can be used in all weathers and lasts a long time.

Resin Bound Drives

A POROUS SURFACE
Our resin bound material naturally drains water through the finished surface just as nature intended. This means a puddle-free surface that is far less likely to flood compared to other surface options. It also allows rain water and essential nutrients to soak beneath the surface.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Resin Bound surfacing is up to 10 times more eco-friendly than concrete. All our resin bound drives, paths and patios are made up of natural stone, using 100% organic resin, which looks fantastic, yet is as strong and durable as concrete without the heavy cost to the planet.

LONG-LASTING DURABILITY
Not only is resin more aesthetically appealing, it is stronger and more durable than tarmac, gravel, concrete and block paving. It is triple layered for superior strength. This also makes it less likely to crack and adverse to weed growth for a long-lasting, beautiful surface.

SAFETY
It’s resistant, giving it all round better traction for tyres and making it safer for walking on. Resin bound surfacing can be laid to make it wheelchair and pushchair friendly and has a natural friction that means you’re unlikely to slip in even the poorest weather conditions. The surface is both gentle to walk on and offers excellent tyre traction that makes it ideal for driving on too.

Block Paving Driveways

Block paving is one of the most popular materials for driveways and resin driveways. Advanced Contractors are trusted paving contractors that install block paving, or paving sets, and have the creativity to ensure you have a block paved driveway, patio or path that is the envy of your whole neighbourhood.

Block paved driveways are cost effective, durable and can be laid in many patterns, colours, styles and finishes. Block paved driveways are also easily maintained, and in cases of stains and damage, individual blocks replaced.

We use the best quality materials, plant and construction methods to a create hard wearing block paved surface. Our team of contractors use high quality blocks as standard from the leading manufactures such as Marshalls, Stonemarket, Brett, Hanson, Bradstone and Natural Stone Paving. These products are constructed to the highest industry standards and will look stunning for years.
