With use and the effect of the sun, the surface of a tarmac driveway will deteriorate and fade over time. Natural resins in tarmac tend to dry out which makes the surface more brittle, allowing cracks to form. But if the surface of your tarmac driveway or footpath is relatively sound, without severe cracks or pot holes it can be restored back to a more attractive and consistent colour.
Tarmac restoration products are referred to as tarmac paint, tarmac restorer or tarmac sealer. And although they will reduce weed growth and offer some protection for the tarmac surface, for many householders the main benefit is aesthetic.
The best performing tarmac restoration products are not available for general purchase by the public and so naturally the best results are achieved by employing specialist companies. For some weathered tarmac driveways, Tarmaseal™ can be a substitute for re-surfacing but before it can be applied, proper preparation of the existing tarmac surface is essential.
