Tar And Chip Installation

Tar and Chip Paving in Franklin, Murfreesboro, and Columbia

TN Asphalt Paving serves Tennessee with quality chip sealing and tar and chip paving. This cost-effective alternative to standard asphalt paving allows property owners to preserve a rustic look for rural driveways and save money on resurfacing asphalt roads.

Tar and chip/chip sealing is a versatile paving method. First, a thin layer of asphalt is laid down, followed by a single layer of stone chips. This method of paving can be performed even in cooler weather when asphalt plants are closed, is highly customizable to use whatever stones are desired, and restores damaged asphalt surfaces.

The Advantages of Chip Seals

Asphalt roads that have surface damage like raveling, small holes, and cracks are at risk of extensive damage due to water infiltration, but can be restored with chip sealing. First, the road is swept of debris and large cracks are sealed. After these preparations, the tar and chip surface is laid down. The surface is then compacted with rollers, and brushed to remove loose stones. The chip seal restores the smooth surface of roads, and prevents further damage from occurring.

Chip sealing is an alternative to asphalt resurfacing. It is less expensive than an asphalt overlay, and will extend the life of asphalt surfaces by many years. Chip seal surfaces never need sealcoating, and require very little maintenance year to year.
