Why use tarmac for playground surfacing?

Here are a few reasons why tarmac is an excellent choice for playground surfacing:

  • An even surface free of trip hazards
    One of the common reasons for children injuring themselves on the playground is that they trip or slip. Asphalt helps children avoid these injuries by providing an even and grippy surface.
  • Highly durable
    Tarmac is a very tough material that will last for many decades
  • Easy to maintain
    Maintaining asphalt is easy. You can use a broom or hose to clear it of debris.
  • Affordable
    The longevity of asphalt makes it an affordable choice for playground surfacing.
  • Hygienic
    Unlike materials like sand or wood chips, asphalt does not become host to bacteria.
  • Can be painted different colours
    Another great reason to use tarmac is that it can be decorated very easily. You can paint different colours on the material to make the playground a fun and inviting space.

“Excellent service, they arrived at the agreed time. Although they had requested the drive to be clear there were some big and heavy planters we could not move, this was not a problem and they happily moved them.

Everything left very tidy, and a vastly improved property. I would not hesitate to recommend.”

Efficient, professional, friendly and fast
I am so very impressed with Nathan and his team of workman. When Nathan conducted a site visit he gave lots of useful advice and suggestions. Once our fee was agreed the mean started on the day they said and were in fact finished within a couple of days. They worked incredibly hard, all the men were friendly and efficient and just got on with the job. I was amazed at the deliveries all scheduled perfectly, their digger stopped children from walking to play school they were so enthralled with it!

I’m really pleased with the end result and cannot wait to park my car(s) on the drive! I’m already planning on using them for my patio next year as I have no doubt they’ll do a fabulous job.

Came to see Nathan and his team at their office. They showed myself and my husband some stone samples, and talked us through exactly how they were going to lay our patio in Chelmsford and after they had taken some measurements and drawn up plans, the work began on time and was even completed slightly ahead of schedule. This was a really great experience and the finished patio is amazing.

They arrived promptly, told me about some work they thought may need doing in additon to the original work, I was aware of the work before they arrived. As I wasn’t there for a couple of the days they were working I had a phone call with one of the people doing the job at the end of the day. They did a quick, tidy and concise job, it looks great. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to friends or anyone else.”

Upgrade of driveway.

Work commenced with replacing the ineffective soak-away that had been installed when the house was built with one of a size and depth large enough to overcome the clay sub-soil problem and ensuring future dispersal of intense rainfall.
All existing surfacing cleared and removed from my property then excellent work in preparing and laying new block driveway with full attention given to every detail to ensure satisfaction and resulting in an outcome exceeding my expectations.
The standard achieved speaks for itself and I have no hesitation in recommending the firm to anyone.

The new driveway is lovely, family and friends have all noticed the attention to detail and hard work put in by Nathan’s team. Many thanks guys.

Chris Clarke

From start to finish we felt completely reassured with Nathan, Sharron and the team. After visiting their site, Nathan and Sharron showed us some samples of bricks and we felt completely reassured. Our driveway looks fantastic and even though there was a little snag after a couple of weeks, they came back to fix it immediately and we are now 100 percent happy with their work. We cannot recommend NB Contracts highly enough.

mark penhallow

“I was extremely pleased with all aspects of this company’s work. We initially agreed a good price but after a day’s work the contractors advised on how the finished drive could be improved. This was an honest and fair assessment of the situation. There was relatively little additional cost and the additional work definitely enhanced the project. The contractor on site was conscientious and very hard working and very keen to add the little touches that make a difference. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.”

We were a bit sceptical as our previous experiences with a different local firm was not great. However, from the initial call right through to the finished job we were made to feel completely at ease and our driveway looks fantastic. Can’t thank you and your company enough, and we will certainly recommend you all of our friends and neighbours.

Really pleased

“The guys were amazing, extremely polite and professional. Price was no different to quote. The work stripping the grass and old paths took a whole day they took all the mud/grass and concrete away to recycle. Good layers of hard core and sand topped with blocks and beautiful edging of stones. They even colour concreted the edge where it met the pavement. The finishing touches and clean up was extremely thorough. The drive is fantastic really pleased.”

“This job was carried out whilst we were on holiday. A bit of a risk since we were not around to inspect progress. However, friends and neighbours saw what was going on and reported back to us. The company kept to their word in providing a deep base which was compressed with large machinery before setting the bricks. No half measures with thin amounts of gravel compressed with wacker-plates. It looks fantastic and I expect it to survive the test of time.”

My husband recently persuaded me to agree to having our driveway and the road leading to our property re tarmacked and I am so pleased he did! Both the drive and roadway have added so much extra to our property and the service we received from Nathan and his team at NB Contracts was absolutely faultless from firstly providing the quote to completing and finishing the job!

Thank you all so very much; I hope the cold drinks I bought out during the day helped contribute to your professional service!

Thank you again

We had our driveway block paved by this company a week ago and are so pleased with the end result. We could not find fault with anything. Their work ethic is second to none, they rocked up at 8am everyday and stayed until the work for that day was finished, sometimes gone 6pm!
The guys cleared up after every day, were no trouble, pleasant to be around and worked hard all day long. Nathan came by several times to check on progress and to give it the final check.
If you want your patio/ driveway done then have these guys, you wont regret it. I’m going to quite miss them being around!

Quick and clean job

We called NB Contracts after we were recommended by our neighbours who had their front driveway redone and it looked fantastic. Our appointment was made for a Sunday morning late September (I am late adding the review) when my husband would be home and this was no issue at all with them coming out at this time. Nathan arrived on time with brochures and samples and his knowledge and pride in the business was evident with the suggestions he provided us. We agreed for our back garden to be completely block paved with a large step added as it is split levels.
Nathan’s team arrived on time on the agreed date (early October) and were nothing but professional at all times. We are delighted with the finished product and would recommend to anyone who asked.

JCSpence

Little job - Massive service

“The men who came to do the work did exactly that, they worked very hard indeed. The Company owner came to inspect the work regularly and on one occasion insisted that bricks be replaced as he saw flaws that only the trained eye would see. The Company were literally paranoid about giving the highest quality service possible….. and they certainly did.  They never asked me for a penny until I was 100% happy with their work.”

Great service, would use again

“N B Contracts were the only company that understood our concerns that we did not want the new driveway to look like a car park. They assured us that once the site was cleared they would mark out the new drive and we could make changes as we went along, everything included in the price quoted. They were true to their word. We love the new drive and get regular comments about how nice it looks and how quick the contractors were. I would recommend this company to anyone.”

Block paved driveway and path

I am so very impressed with Nathan and his team of workman. When Nathan conducted a site visit he gave lots of useful advice and suggestions. Once our fee was agreed the mean started on the day they said and were in fact finished within a couple of days. They worked incredibly hard, all the men were friendly and efficient and just got on with the job. I was amazed at the deliveries all scheduled perfectly, their digger stopped children from walking to play school they were so enthralled with it!

I’m really pleased with the end result and cannot wait to park my car(s) on the drive! I’m already planning on using them for my patio next year as I have no doubt they’ll do a fabulous job.

They arrived promptly, told me about some work they thought may need doing in additon to the original work, I was aware of the work before they arrived. As I wasn’t there for a couple of the days they were working I had a phone call with one of the people doing the job at the end of the day. They did a quick, tidy and concise job, it looks great. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to friends or anyone else.”

Lay a new patio.

Work commenced with replacing the ineffective soak-away that had been installed when the house was built with one of a size and depth large enough to overcome the clay sub-soil problem and ensuring future dispersal of intense rainfall.

The standard achieved speaks for itself and I have no hesitation in recommending the firm to anyone.

We had our driveway block paved by this company a week ago and are so pleased with the end result. We could not find fault with anything. Their work ethic is second to none, they rocked up at 8am everyday and stayed until the work for that day was finished, sometimes gone 6pm!
The guys cleared up after every day, were no trouble, pleasant to be around and worked hard all day long. Nathan came by several times to check on progress and to give it the final check.
If you want your patio/ driveway done then have these guys, you wont regret it. I’m going to quite miss them being around!

Little job - Massive service

We called NB Contracts after we were recommended by our neighbours who had their front driveway redone and it looked fantastic. Our appointment was made for a Sunday morning late September (I am late adding the review) when my husband would be home and this was no issue at all with them coming out at this time. Nathan arrived on time with brochures and samples and his knowledge and pride in the business was evident with the suggestions he provided us. We agreed for our back garden to be completely block paved with a large step added as it is split levels.
Nathan’s team arrived on time on the agreed date (early October) and were nothing but professional at all times. We are delighted with the finished product and would recommend to anyone who asked.

“This job was carried out whilst we were on holiday. A bit of a risk since we were not around to inspect progress. However, friends and neighbours saw what was going on and reported back to us. The company kept to their word in providing a deep base which was compressed with large machinery before setting the bricks. No half measures with thin amounts of gravel compressed with wacker-plates. It looks fantastic and I expect it to survive the test of time.”
