Chip seal paving, also known as tar and chip paving, is similar to asphalt in that it combines hot cement, a binder, and gravel. The site is drained, hot tar is laid down, and crushed stones are installed over the hot tar before being embedded with a roller. It is a paving style that has been in use for more than a century and is a good choice of roadways, parking lots, and driveways. When properly installed by a professional contractor, chip seal paving requires no maintenance and will last for decades.
The benefits of chip seal paving are many. First, it costs about 50% less than similar pavements. It is also very aesthetically appealing and can be thought of as decorative stone paving that produces a wonderful rustic look. Its light, rough surface also provides excellent traction in wet or icy weather, does not absorb heat, and does not have the same glare as asphalt. It also prevents water damage to roadways underneath. If you are interested in saving money up front and in the long run, it is perfect for you.
Chip seal paving can be used during both pavement restoration on old and damaged roads and in the construction of completely new roads. As your chip seal contractor, we will always provide reliable and cost-effective services from the beginning of the project to the end.
