Advantages of Our Driveways

Tarmac driveways, Bournemouth customers, are an excellent investment, especially if you drive. The ability to park off-road increases both security and safety. There’s less risk of your car being broken into or sideswiped. Plus, you’ll have less distance to walk from your car to your front door. 

There are benefits to choosing a driveway built by Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd too, such as: 

  • Superb Durability 
  • Low Maintenance 
  • Increased Property Value 
  • Visual Appeal 

Superb Durability 

Here at Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd, we use only premium-grade materials, ensuring that any surface we build stands the test of time. While tarmac driveways have to stand up to far less than public roads, a poorly built driveway will soon crack, crumble, and collapse.  

We call upon tried and tested methods and utilise a full array of equipment and tools to ensure that any driveways we install perform as expected. 

Low Maintenance   

Tarmac driveways, Bournemouth customers, require very little maintenance. These surfaces will retain their structure and aesthetic appeal for many years. All that’s needed is a brush and a hosepipe. Sweep away any dust or stones from time to time and give the surface a hose down to bring it back to pristine condition. The low maintenance requirements are why tarmac surfaces are so appealing. 

Increase Property Value  

In today’s property market, people tend to be more willing to pay more for extra features or additional space. You’d be surprised by just how alluring the prospect of a private driveway can be. If your property lacks a driveway, this one simple addition can add thousands to your property’s value. And remember that a crumbled driveway can spoil the look of the property. 

Plus, if a buyer has to pay to have the driveway rebuilt, they will likely look to recoup this cost elsewhere. 

Visually Appealing  

This point follows on from the previous point – tarmac driveways make properties look ten times better, Bournemouth customers. A driveway that’s a right mess will make the property look cluttered and unkempt. That’s why the restoration of driveways is such a popular service, especially among those looking to sell.  

Even simply adding driveways where previously absent is enough to greatly enhance a property’s appearance. Nothing quite beats the sophisticated undertones of stylishly designed tarmac driveways.

Types of Material We Use for Driveways  

At Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd, we can construct tarmac driveways, but we can also build driveways from asphalt, Bournemouth customers. There is a difference between the two materials, albeit subtle. 

Difference Between Asphalt and Tarmac  

Tarmac driveways are an older option, made from a layer of crushed stone or aggregate that’s been coated and mixed with tar. We apply this mixture then compact it with a vibrating roller to create a nice, smooth surface. 

Asphalt driveways, on the other hand, are a more modern invention. For asphalt surfaces, bitumen replaces tar. Appearance-wise, asphalt is very similar, but because it contains fewer external materials, it is actually more hard-wearing. 

Repair and Maintenance Services for Your Driveways  

Even asphalt and tarmac driveways will need professional attention from time to time. If your driveway is old and showing signs of wear and tear, it may need replacing. However, if the wear or damage is relatively minor, we can repair the driveway by stripping away the old tarmac/ asphalt and replacing it with a new layer. We can even restore the foundations if they’ve worn or been damaged. 

Tarmac Driveways Aftercare Guide  

Our ‘Tarmac Aftercare Guide’ contains a wealth of information on how to look after tarmac driveways, maximising their lifespan. Bournemouth customers will find useful tips and information, such as: 

  • Tackling Oil and Chemical Spillages 
  • What to Expect During Hot Weather 
  • Point Loading, Trailers and Caravans, Motorbikes, and Ladders 
  • Weeds, Vegetation, and Soil Debris

More Than Just Driveways in Bournemouth  

At Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd, we are regarded as the South’s leading asphalt, tarmacadam, and civil engineering specialists. As you’d expect, we didn’t earn such a status by limiting our services to tarmac driveways. Bournemouth customers can also call on us to provide other services, including: 

Playground Surfacing  

Playground surfacing needs to be maintained to keep it looking great and to prevent trips and falls. Playground surfaces play a key role in forming first impressions, so make yours stand out. Our Bournemouth team can carry out work during the school holidays to have your playground ready to go when the kids return. 

Roads and Highways  

Roads and highways (motorways) see a large amount of daily use. This is especially true with roads that support HGVs, as these can damage a surface up to 10,000 times the average passenger vehicle. Our Bournemouth surfacing team can rid roads and highways of potholes and cracks, creating a smooth and safe surface on which to drive. 

Retail Parks  

As with industrial estates, retail parks see a lot of daily use, and if surfaces become degraded, the likelihood of accidents increases. Customers’ vehicles can also be damaged by worn surfaces, leaving you open to liability. Don’t let worn surfaces bring down the appeal of your retail park – enlist our Bournemouth team now. 

Sports Surfaces  

At Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd, we can install a range of sports surfaces, from football and tennis to bowls and multi-sport surfaces. We can install indoor and outdoor surfaces in an array of colours. 

Footpaths and Cycleways  

Nothing beats taking a nice stroll or cycle, but problems can soon arise if the provided footpaths or cycleways are either unfit for purpose or entirely absent. Our Bournemouth team has a wealth of experience creating and reinstating footpaths and cycleways, providing a safe surface on which to walk or ride. And we utilise vibrant colours to ensure that cycleways or pedestrianised areas are clearly marked. 

Industrial Estates  

Industrial estates see a lot of heavy traffic, both literally and in terms of the number of vehicles. Surfaces can take one hell of a beating and be left out of commission before too long. Not only is this unsightly, but it presents a safety hazard too. Vehicles can be damaged, personnel can trip and fall, and if severely worn, a surface may even become impassable. 

We can handle large projects in Bournemouth, even reinstating the surfaces of an entire industrial estate.
