Tar & Chip Driveway
We had a very long rough and rocky driveway that had never been paved. F&H took the time to look at our concerns with us and assured we were satisfied prior to moving forward. Bottom line - they gave us a quality job at a reasonable price!

After the prep work is completed (grading, site prep, etc.) a coat of liquid asphalt is applied to the existing surface. This is accomplished carefully in order to apply a consistent amount that is heated to the right temperature.
After the liquid asphalt is applied, a crushed chip stone is spread out on top of the surface. The color of stone varies based on your preference. The stone adheres to the hot liquid asphalt, then a roller is used to integrate the stone into the tar. This process is repeated if necessary based on the project.
