You might have noticed a different type of pavement on certain roads, parking lots, and driveways here in Minneapolis. This pavement has a slightly rougher texture than traditional blacktop, and it’s lighter in color, too. This is what’s known as “chip seal” paving (or sometimes “tar and chip”), and it’s a popular type of pavement in this region of Minnesota.
Here at Professional Paving, we are happy to provide chip seal as one of our driveway paving options.
Chip seal is a rugged paving aggregate that is durable, long-lasting, and has a unique look. And those aren’t the only benefits to choosing this type of pavement… To find out more about chip seal driveways, keep reading or give us a call!
Why Choose Chip Seal Paving?
Chip seal paving offers a handful of advantages, and it’s easy to see why this type of surface is popular in the Minneapolis area. Here are just some of the benefits that tar and chip driveway paving provides:
- It’s cost-effective. Since chip seal is an aggregate, it often costs less than installing regular asphalt (but your final cost does, of course, depend on the amount of paving required).
- It’s durable. Chip seal requires no maintenance and will last longer than regular blacktop.
- It looks distinctive. Chip seal looks different from traditional asphalt, and it does have a distinct look that can add a unique flair to your property. And though it isn’t quite as smooth as blacktop, it’s not at all bumpy like gravel, either.
