The Advantages of Chip Seals

Tar and chip has been used for paving projects for hundreds of years. A tar and chip driveway or road is highly customizable, low-maintenance, provides good traction, and is budget-friendly. Sometimes chip seal can be installed over your existing pavement to refresh your asphalt driveway or parking lot without needing to tear out the base.

Tar and chip paving has a rough surface texture from the final step where the stone chips are laid on top of the hot liquid asphalt. There is a variety of options you can choose for this final layer. Thanks to the stones rolled in the liquid asphalt, chip seal provides better surface traction than other paving options. It is an ideal option for areas that receive frequent rain and inclement weather.

What makes tar & chip different from other paving options?

Chip seal is a low-cost alternative that is less expensive than paving asphalt driveways and parking lots. Unlike asphalt, it also doesn’t require yearly maintenance or seal coating. Instead, every 7 to 10 years a fresh chip seal layer is paved to keep the surface fresh. Because of this, it is not considered a long-lasting material. However, it is a durable surface that costs less than asphalt installation.

Caution should be used when clearing snow from a tar and chip driveway. The crushed stone in the top layer can be dislodged by a plow that is set too low. To avoid this, bumpers can be used to skim over the surface and clear the snow without damaging the top layer.

We have an experienced team of contractors who know what it takes to pave a tar and chip surface. We stand behind our chip seal driveways, and roads, and make sure that every job is completed to great customer satisfaction. Give us a call today to schedule your free service quote.
