Why More People do Not Use Tar Chips

The main reason that more people in rural areas do not use the tar chip is because many contractors do not use them anymore and therefore, finding contractor that still uses the process is often difficult.

Many people that live in rural areas outside the city depend on tar chipping as a way to help them get to their homes in a more efficient way than driving on plan dirt roads, which in the rainy season can become hazardous as it get very muddy.

Tar Chip Uses and Benefits

If you are looking to pave your driveway, one of the best methods to use is tar chip. Tar chips can be applied directly to dirt or other black top surfaces. The coating consists of hot asphalt liquid and then followed by chip rock of approximately 3/8 inches. Once the tar chips are laid then it is rolled over with a specialized vehicle in order to compact the materials together. Once the tar chip is finished, it will look like a gravel driveway, except the rock is impacted into the tar so that the rocks are not flying around loose like as typical gravel driveway.
