The tar and chip method of paving produces striking results. Not every paving contractor offers this service, but SMI Paving does. We’ve helped many clients in North and South Carolina improve their properties by adding a unique tar and chip driveway or parking lot.
What is the Tar and Chip Method?
If you choose a tar and chip driveway or parking lot, your contractor will first apply a hot mix liquid asphalt cement to a gravel base or your existing driveway or parking lot (provided that it is in good condition). Next, one or two layers of the crushed stone of your choice will be spread on top of the hot asphalt and compacted down. The end result is a stunning and unique driveway or parking lot that is customized to your specific desires.
