Hi all,

I am looking for some advice on a tarmac driveway, my drive is about 30 years old with a very thin layer of tarmac and I think with shale base. The more we use the drive holes appear which I have been fixing with tarmac hole repair it is now getting to the stage I need to do a proper repair. Do I need to lift the old tar or can I just lay new tar over the top of the existing tarmac.

New surface is only as sound as whats underneath it. I'd be looking to remove the existing surface, to leave a decent sub base, then resurface with base and wearing course as required.
