Edited On: 21/04/2017 16:12TOTALLY O/T TARMAC DRIVES
 
Has anyone had their tarmac drive resurfaced?
I have a small semi detached the drive is approx 6 metres & 6 metres. I also want to resurface 1.5 wide down one side of the house. (8.5 metres long)
It is only being resurfaced NOT dug out first then surfaced)
I've had a quote but I don't know if it's a good or bad price.
Has anyone had anything similar done if so how much did you pay?
Or is there someone in the trade that could float out a budget cost for guidance only.
Really would appreciate help with this.....🚌

About 15-20/sq yd for 3 inches inc levelling and hardcore (for large contract). Less if you do the levelling. But you have got to make sure of the tarmac quality. Some might mix in chippings to the stuff they get from the depot. And my advice would be to use weedkiller liberally first on the ground, if you have any mare's tail weeds nearby. Those prehistoric plants will push their way up through anything.

We used Jim Ramsbottom, for a very big job a few years ago. He's based in Preston (sorry) but nice, friendly chap and the work has stood up well. He also did a good job in setting the right gradients on sections of the work so the water flows off down the drains. He will probably give you a 10-year guarantee.

Bus,

Getting it re-surfaced is like throwing money away as it will start to come up pretty quick after being laid.

The only way to do it is properly and that would mean digging out etc etc.

Tarmac is very expensive nowadays although if done right does look good.

I've a biggish drive which has been block paved for several years now although I do find it a pain in the XXXXXX having to jet wash it and re-sand it every year.

Botton line Bus is there is not really any cheap options.

Bus - Blackpoolmad does driveways, sure someone on here knows his details. I think it's Fylde landscapes.

He also gives discounts to Blackpool fans, which is a bit of bad luck for you [;)]

Archie, I lived next door to Jim Ramsbottom and can vouch for him. Good lad but crap chopper pilot. I thought he was going to end up in my trees sometimes.

Hey bus, I'm actually fully booked up now till August, but happy to come round and give you my best advice for free.
I'm in Poulton Tuesday night so can call and see you then.
You can buy small bags of tarmac to fill in, but it is only temporary.

Blackpoolmad Pal,,
Thank you for your kind offer,
The job was relatively simple, it's a rental property that's the tennant has gone, just needed to resurface it to hive the house more "kerb appeal" to prospective new tennant.
I've let the job out to someone who can do the job next week.
The price I've got runs out at 19/square meter & it's not a big job so I think the price is ok.
When I have anything gardens & drives I will definitely give you a call.
Please also introduce yourself next time your in the TH.
Cheers again!!!!......🚌
