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.

Driveway Base

If necessary before applying the hot tar using our own heavy duty machinery to install a base layer for your new tar and chip driveway, roadway, car park or farm track. This process is only required if you have no existing base.

Apply Hot Tar

During this stage we’ll work quickly using our own trusted equipment to spread the hot tar over your existing surface to bind the base to the decorative stone chips.

Unload Stones

We use our own plant and machinery to carefully apply your chosen loose stone onto the hot tar as quickly as possible to avoid the tar from cooling. With small areas being hand laid using industrial surface dressing rakes, our own customised chipping machine followed by our sit and drive roller when it comes to the later compacting stages.

Spread Stones

A layer of your chosen loose stone is then spread over the hot tar by the NB Contracts team and raked to cover using our industrial tar and chip rakes and our customised chipping machine, with any stones falling outside of your driveways edge being raked back in.

Roll Stones

Once the stones have been evenly spread we’ll use our sit and drive roller to press down and embed them into the tar.


We recommend you give your new tar and chip decorative stone driveway at least 48 hours to set before driving on the surface.

We trade on our name and have been NB Contracts from the day we began. Unlike many other companies, all the images you see on our website, are our own work. If you see any of these photos on any other website, contact us.

We would like to thank the NB Contracts Team for a magnificent job in preparing, laying and finishing the block paving laid to the front, side and rear of our property. Despite some awful weather conditions they were clean and tidy, where possible, and always left the site usable each evening. I would not hesitate to use them for any future work required. The price quoted was the price charged, even with some minor alterations that we requested. Many Thanks
