Frequently Asked Questions
Tarmac driveway is a great cost-effective solution. It offers a fantastic look, it's extremely durable and designed to last a long time. If you’re looking for an affordable driveway solution that looks great, then tarmac is the best option for you. D Harrison Home Improvements offer all driveways a 10-year insurance backed guarantee free of charge – no matter what happens, you are covered.
It all depends on how bad the existing tarmac is. If it is a solid foundation, then yes. But if it has degraded too far with cracks and ravelling edges, then no. It has to be taken up to give a solid base to start again.
Tarmac can be laid anytime of the year and under most weather conditions. In hot weather it just takes a little longer to “go off”. Tarmac surfaces are by far the most quickest and cleanest surfaces to lay with very little inconvenience to the householder. It can be used within hours of laying.
Any quality driveway needs to have a good base as any house needs to be built on sound foundations. We pride ourselves on the quality of our base work which ensures that the surface material will have a maximum life span.
We would recommend to not drive on the new tarmac for at least 24 hours.
Edgings come in various materials, many different designs and colours. Edgings can also serve different purposes. The most common use of an edging is for soil or grass retention! A good quality decorative edging gives a neat appearance and a clean sharp finish to any surface. It is well worth spending the extra money and making sure that you fit the correct edging kerbs.
We can style a drive, path or patio to suite your tastes and match the character of the property. Whether you wish it to make “a statement” or just to mellow in with its surrounding, we can help. One thing is for sure – no matter what choice, you will have a driveway that will give you a homecoming welcome and that will last for years to come.
Our “New Generation” of Tarmac Asphalts have extremely hard-wearing surfaces which require very little maintenance. We suggest that at least once a year you treat the surface with a weed killer to prevent any air borne seeds from taking growth. A wash down with a solution of soapy water once a year always refreshes any driveway surface. D Harrison Home Improvements also offers a cleaning service which will keep your driveway in pristine condition.
