    Tar and chip driveway

    Well my wife and I are taking the plunge and getting our driveway tarred and chipped in the next few weeks.

    Over the past few years I’ve gotten tired of plowing the driveway and pushing stones into the yard.

    We’re having a local company come and do the work. They are putting down 2 layers of modified 2B and then a top coat of 1/2.

    They did the blacktop driveway at our old house it it held up extremely well over the years. Hoping this will do even better. They are telling me 20-25 years without doing much to it.

    They just did a top coat on my in-laws blacktop driveway.



    We’re all happy with how it looks. Once we get some rains and all the dust gets washed off the stone it should get darker.

    This is another job they just finished in town.
    This has been rained on a few times but was dry when the pic was taken. I like the darker look.



    So we will see how it goes. They are planning on 3000 gallons of “tar material” and about 160 tons of stone.

    Now to start looking for a 59” blower for the 955 now thst I won’t have to worry about throwing 3/4” stone everywhere.

    My neighbor had that done about 2 years ago, but it is still white. Never turned color at all. We call it chip and seal here. They use it on some of the gravel roads and put up a sign that says "Dust Control". They even put it over one of the roads that had old blacktop paving on it to make it last longer.

    The picture of the pavement in the park has had a black sealer coating put on top of the gravel. The top picture has not.
    Indiana has been doing chip & seal on a lot of state roads the last few years. They spray tar on the pavement, then spread the small gravel over the tar. About a week later, they sweep off any loose gravel, then spray the black sealer coat over the gravel.

    PennDOT uses that procedure here. I refuse to drive over it for a week or two. It's too hard to clean the tar spatter off of the side of the vehicles.

    We are seeing it more and more around here. Where they used to pave a new top coat they now use the tar and chip even on 55mph roads.

    Talk about a mess - have you ever driven through when they are laying it down?

    Around here I’ve never seen it used on a driveway. They are either gravel or regular pavement.

    Curious as to the cost difference of the tar and chip vs. regular pavement....I would love something like this so I could use salt and have a non ice pack driveway most of the winter.

    PennDOT just did that in the Harrisburg area to a very busy road with dangerous intersections and the dust was so bad that drivers could not see the vehicle in front of them. All you could see was a giant cloud of dust.

    They were finally forced to come back a couple days later and sweep the entire area clean. The delay was because they had to "borrow" a road sweeper from some local township.

    Here they also call it "chip and seal" I think the chip is for what it does to the paint on your car/truck. The signs they put out say "LOOSE STONES"

    When they add the top sealing coat here, they call it "fog seal" I have seen it done in sub divisions, but not on rural roads here.

    I wait even longer, I do not want the paint chips.

    My Mom drove through the tar, before the chips were put down. I asked her WHY? She said she HAD to go to the store It took me two cans of tar remover to clean up her car

    Here, chip and seal, when done over freshly graded gravel, two applications is just over 1/2 the cost of hot mix asphalt, maybe 5% more.

    Interesting..... I have never seen any of those applications around here getting dusty at all. They must be putting down a layer of rock that has fines in it. Here they use clean small gravel. I have never really looked at the size closely, but it appears to be as small as pea gravel.

    as far as i know-u can get Quaker oil sales out of Johnstown,Pa to do the same kind of thing at ur place. mostly what they do is lay down some tar and gravel over it-then roll the heck out of it.
    but i bet they would do whatever way u want it --of course its gonna take a few of this
