Everything you need to know about your new Tarmac® drive

With such welcoming residents, Newton Abbot deserves surfaces as beautiful as the River Teign! Tarmacadam is a common surfacing material used by many businesses and homeowners across the area. A relatively cost-effective solution (with the average install price being £700-£6,000), this material is often chosen as a budget-friendly solution when compared to other, more traditional options. Despite this, your Tarmac® driveway is likely to last up to 20 years, with the right maintenance and a professional installation from Ultimate Driveways. The timeless, smooth finish makes this the perfect surface to pair with the charming, historic homes we work with, ensuring an installation that doesn't take away from the town's natural splendor. 

A common question we're regularly asked by our clients in Newton Abbot is if they'll need planning permission for their new driveway. As the many variables mean there is no straightforward answer, you'll need planning permission if you're laying over an area of 5 metres squared or installing an impermeable material, such as concrete, which will not absorb rainfall. If you're unsure, we'll happily offer guidance to ensure you have the right permissions in place. 

Just some of the many benefits of Tarmac®

  • Extremely versatile, easily laid for many applications 

  • Durable and long-lasting, up to 20 years 

  • Less susceptible to cracking and water ingress when compared to paving 

  • Highly weather-resistant

  • Smooth and consistent aesthetic

"I can't thank John and his team enough. I decided I wanted to replace my parent's driveway for them and he was brilliant in responding to my call immediately, then the next day visited my parents and assessed their drive for a quote and made sure they were happy with everything, he then called me and gave me the quote. We agreed the date and I felt completely happy putting my business with him and I was right to, the results have been exceptional and my parent's are so delighted with their new driveway. John is a lovely kind man, I wish he did more than driveways so we could use him again and again. I can't recommend John and his team highly enough, one day all companies will be like this one."
