    Our work is dedicated to the prosperity of our clients!

Although Asphalt is the most common choice for new or existing driveways or entrance ways, there is a more economical solution - Tar and Gravel. Given the right conditions Tar and Gravel may be a better alternative for you to consider.

With tar and gravel solution, a hot liquid asphalt cement is poured onto a gravel base and then layered with crushed stone which is then compacted to form a nice smooth surface.

Benefits of Tar and Gravel?
  • Lower cost than asphalt paved projects.
  • Appearance - A more elegant, natural finished look.
  • Low Maintenance - doesn't required to be sealed regularly / cracks seal themselves in warmer weather as gravel settles over the cracks as a cover up.
  • Longer Life Expectancy - typically lasts an average of 8-10 years before needing to be re-surfaced.
  • Traction - Improves vehicle traction.
Disadvantages of Tar and Gravel?
  • Snow Removal may cause damage.
  • Low Durability for vehicles with heavy loads.
  • Stones may become loose or missing and will need to be replaced.
  • Really Not a Do-It-Yourself Project - Experienced Contractors hard to find.
  • Not quite as smooth for children that may want to roller skate or roller blade.
