This involves a mix of chip and bitumen applied to the road base. Chipseal is a durable and cost effective road surfacing option for most environments and conditions. A high quality chipseal surfaced driveway should last up to 15yrs before it needs resurfacing – depending on the traffic load and use as well as weather conditions.
Also known as bitumen, asphalt is a sticky, black and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. It is used as the glue or binder and mixed with aggregate particles to create an asphalt surface. A high quality asphalt surface should last at least 20yrs and can easily be spot repaired as needed.
