What is Tar and Chip Paving?

Tar and chip paving, also known as chip seal (or chip and seal) paving or seal chip, is a method of surfacing roads, driveways, and parking lots. The process begins with preparing the existing surface by cleaning it and, if necessary, repairing any cracks or potholes. The workers apply a layer of hot liquid asphalt (tar) to the prepared surface. A gravel base (chip) follows this.

The gravel adheres to the surface of the hot asphalt creating a textured surface. Heavy machinery compacts this mixture, ensuring that the chips embed into the asphalt. This compaction process helps to create a tight bond between the chips and the asphalt. The final result is a durable and weather-resistant textured surface.

One of the advantages of tar and chip paving is it is relatively low maintenance. This fact, combined with its cost effectiveness, make it a great option for country roads, driveways, and parking lots. It is a good choice for these areas.

Advantages of Tar and Chip Paving

Tar and Chip has a lot of key features and advantages. Regardless if you are upgrading your driveway from gravel or paving a county road, the advantages are far reaching. Check out the benefits of Tar and Chip Paving and reach out when you’re ready to begin your next project.


Tar and chip paving typically costs less than asphalt or concrete paving. This makes it a budget-friendly option for rural roads, driveways, and parking lots.


Mixing hot liquid asphalt with aggregate chips creates a strong surface that can handle lots of traffic and tough weather.

Aesthetic Appeal:

Tar and chip paving offers a rustic and textured appearance. This can enhance the visual appeal of residential tar and chip driveways and other outdoor spaces.

Low Maintenance:

Tar and chip surfaces require minimal maintenance compared to other paving methods. This will reduce the need for frequent repairs and upkeep.

Quick Installation:

Tar and chip paving installs relatively quickly compared to other paving methods. This will minimize disruptions and downtime for homeowners or businesses.

Customization Options:

There are various types and colors of aggregate chips available. This lets us match the surrounding environment or achieve a specific aesthetic.

Good traction:

The textured surface of tar and chip paving provides excellent traction. This can greatly reduce the risk of skidding or sliding, especially in wet or icy conditions.


Tar and chip paving requires fewer natural resources and energy to produce compared to asphalt or concrete. This is one of the most environmentally friendly options available.

We had our driveway paved this summer, and we have been very happy with it. So far, no issues, but several compliments on our property -- one of our neighbors got their driveway paved after seeing ours! I would highly recommend B&G or consider them for future projects. Workers were courteous, efficient, and they neat as they cleaned up after the job. Thank you!

Thought I'd have to hire several contractors over a number of weeks to complete my project. I called BG to quote replacing my asphalt driveway. Turned out that they could remove an old concrete slab, bring in a dozen loads of shale and dirt, change the slope of my property, resurface my parking area, and put in a new beautiful driveway. All for a reasonable price and in 3 1/2 days. They did everything that I asked them to do. I'm very pleased with the results.
