Using a computerized distributor truck we apply a heavy of hot tar liquid a.c to the entire surface being chip sealed and cover it with a layer of washed Limestone chip rock and locked it into place with a large rubber tire pneumatic roller, this process is nothing new it has been around for many years virtually every asphalt roadway or highway built in America before 1930 was Tar & Chip and many secondary county roads are still paved using the Hot Tar & Chip Seal method it's more affordable, lasts a long time and requires less maintenance than an asphalt paved surface !
Hot Tar Chip Seal can be put down over any good solid based foundation or over an existing blacktop or concrete surface. The site is prepped and additional base is installed as needed.
A heavy coating of R.S.2 hot tar liquid a.c is applied and covered with a layer of washed chip rock, We do a 2 layer job with each layer being individually compacted, with a layer of loose chip rock left on top of the 2 compacted layers.
Hot Tar Chip Seal lets you keep that rural gravel country road and driveway look while having the convenience
of not having to re-rock it every year or deal with dust, dirt and mud.
Seeing little bit of tar ! No worries that's normal a good chip seal job will show some tar peaking through.
Hot Tar Chip is relatively maintenance free with no top coatings needed and few repairs. To snow plow a Hot Tar & Chip Seal simply raise the blade up 1 inch
The first and most Important reason Hot Tar Chip Seal is a better choice than Blacktop or Concrete is because it is very cost effective and does the same job as Blacktop and according to the size of the area being covered it can be close to half the price of asphalt and about a third of concrete is, also like stated above it is practically maintenance free Hot Tar Chip also gives better traction, every surface can be slippery due to water from sprinkler systems, rain, snow, ice or oil leaks and should be treated for these conditions as needed but unlike Blacktop or Concrete Hot Tar Chip Seal has a rough surface and can provide traction for your foot or tire verses Blacktop & Concrete.
