How are Tar & Chip Driveways made and applied?
A tar-and-chip surface is made by covering hot bitumen – aka asphalt – with stone aggregate. The installation process for a tar-and-chip surface begins with the application of hot bitumen to the desired area, followed by the spreading of stone aggregate over the bitumen to create a durable and attractive surface.
Tar and chip requires specialized equipment such as a spreader truck, a chip spreader, a dump truck, a roller, and a broom, all of which must be operated by experienced professionals in order to ensure a quality job that will last for years to come.
