FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Is asphalt different from tar?

The correct terminology is asphalt. Although there is a technical difference, for the layman, asphalt and tar are the same thing. Asphalt is aggregate mixed with bitumen, a by-product of fuel refining. Tar is a natural product (hot liquid) used to replace bitumen to form a product similar to asphalt. Tar is extremely difficult and expensive to find, whereas bitumen is freely available. What we see on all our roads, car parks, etc. is asphalt.

Are there different types/grades of asphalt?

Yes there are. Generally a fine mix (small stone mix) is used for domestic applications. A medium mix (medium sized stone) is used for higher traffic areas such as shopping malls. A heavy mix (larger sized stone) is used for areas where there are heavier vehicles and high traffic volume. More often than not, the thickness of the asphalt (and base material) would also increase to accommodate for higher traffic and increased weight.

Can you asphalt over concrete?

If the concrete is thick enough (at least 50mm) and in a reasonable condition, then, YES you can. HOWEVER, due to asphalt and concrete having different expansion and contraction ratios, it is possible for cracks to develop in the asphalt at a later stage (especially where cracks and/or expansion joints exist in the concrete). We cannot guarantee that such cracks will not appear.

What does asphalting cost per square meter?

We need to see what you want done so as to ensure you are going to get exactly what you want. Many factors influence the price per square meter. Here are just a few:
  • The amount of preparation required.
  • The thickness of the base material (Minimum 75mm up to 200 or 300mm depending on the size/weight of the vehicle(s) to be used upon the asphalt).
  • Do material delivery trucks have access to the work area.
  • The thickness of the asphalt (Minimum 25mm up to 30mm, 40mm or 50mm depending on the amount of traffic and size/weight of vehicles to have access to be used upon the asphalt.

What will it cost to get a quote?

All our quotes are absolutely free with no obligation on your part whatsoever.

What is better, paving or asphalting?

The choice between paving and asphalting is a personal one. Generally asphalting is cheaper and more maintenance free than paving. However paving may be better suited for areas where forklift trucks or hysters are operating.

How soon can we expect the work to start should we accept your quote?

Normally within 10 working days from the time we receive your signed acceptance of the quote given to you. We will however call you and keep you up to date with the exact date upon which your work will commence.

Does South Coast Tarmac guarantee their work?

Yes we do. We provide a 1 year workmanship guarantee for all work conducted as per the requirements of The Asphalt Association.

Pricing of new, resurfacing, repairs

We recommend comparing apples with apples.

Compare prices from reputable companies (i.e. Asphalt Association Members) with one another and NOT businesses who advertise at traffic lights or on road signs.

Compare square meters, compare base thickness and asphalt thickness.

We guarantee that our prices would be extremely competitive if you compare accurately
