Tarmac Driveways in Haywards Heath, Tonbridge and all South East Areas | Located in Crowborough

When thinking about investing into new driveways, it is tarmac that will often come to mind first and for good reason. The popularity of tarmac driveways owes much to the hardiness and versatility of the material, which has earned it many plaudits with local homeowners on a tighter budget. This explains why you see tarmac used on so many installations across Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Indeed, we cover all locations across the South East to include:

Crowborough | East Grinstead | Haywards Heath | Sevenoaks | Tonbridge | Tunbridge Wells

And, while TP Resin Driveways Ltd has resin in the name, tarmac is a material that there is an increasing demand for, and one that surfacing contractors love working with to help clients create a fantastic first impression while adding to a property’s kerb appeal and raising its overall market resale value.

Below, we explore the main benefits of tarmac driveways.

Please keep in mind that, as with all new driveways installed by our team, it is the client who makes the final decision to invest into this surface. We offer two-year guarantees on our workmanship with material warranties honoured.

Reason to Choose Tarmac Driveways

When considering tarmac driveways, or new driveways in any other material, we strongly recommend spending some time reading up on things like cost, suitability, performance and maintenance. It is important to us that you feel comfortable with your choices, and TP Resin Driveways Ltd will always be on hand to answer any further questions you might have over the telephone.

Clients across the South East choose tarmac for the following reasons:


Tarmac driveways are known for being durable and robust, and well-suited for absorbing the day-to-day impact of foot traffic and vehicle weight. For this reason, tarmac is a long-lasting option for new driveways, especially when you get the best local surfacing contractors to take on your project.

Tarmacadam lays as a continuous surface and is now available to choose in a range of colours which will blend in with your home and your hardscape.

Quick Installation

Another major draw to new driveways in tarmac is speed of installation, and laying times compare similarly to resin driveways. If you already have tarmac laid but have concerns that it is reaching the end of its lifespan, arrange for us to visit you and we will evaluate its condition. With some minor repairs, TP Resin Driveways Ltd can sometimes lay over old surfaces to save more time.

This is beneficial for homeowners in Crowborough, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas who want new tarmac driveways laid without an extended construction period.

Smooth Surface

Tarmac driveways provide a smooth and even surface, resulting in reduced wear on tyres and less potential for underbody scrapes and scratches. The seamless nature of tarmac will also reduce the risk of tripping on an uneven surface, making it particularly suitable for those with mobility impairments.

It is also possible to use tarmac products which reduce slip risks, another key consideration for homes where there are children or elderly people present.

Ease of Maintenance

Many clients contact TP Resin Driveways Ltd looking for something easy and low in maintenance to lay. Tarmac driveways tick these two boxes. Regular cleaning and occasional resealing are usually sufficient to keep the surface in good condition. Cracks can be repaired, and the overall maintenance requirements are less intensive compared to some other driveway materials.

Long-term maintenance is often a factor in a client’s decision on materials and many prefer new driveways that only require minimal care.

Weather Resistance

It can get cold and wet during the autumn, winter and spring months, and new driveways need to respect this. Tarmac driveways excel here, being resistant to various weather conditions including rain, snow and ice. This owes much to tarmac’s flexibility, which helps it to withstand freeze-thaw cycles without significant cracking and thus reducing maintenance and repair costs.

Solid performance reduces long-term costs for clients in Crowborough, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.


While the initial installation cost of tarmac driveways may vary depending on factors such as driveway size and location, they are often considered cost-effective when compared to alternatives like block paving. This can attract homeowners looking for a durable new driveway option with a small budget.

Budget choices can also include resin bond and gravel driveways, which the surfacing contractors at TP Resin Driveways Ltd also specialise in.
