Preparation

NB Contracts offer a range of decorative stones to choose from both in style and colour to create a unique and personal feel to your tar and chip driveway, roadway, car park or farm track. A member of our team will run you through our selection during the early preparation stage.

Tar and chip can be applied right over an existing base, such as blacktop, concrete or gravel as long as any old weeds and moss have been cleared and the surface is swept clean before the hot tar can be applied.
