California’s Central Coast “Chip Seal” or “Tar & Chip” Paving

If you’re frustrated with your dusty gravel or dirt driveway or old, cracked pavement, City Paving Service also specializes in a lower-cost alternative to traditional asphalt paving known as “Chip Seal” or “Tar & Chip” paving. One big benefit is that it’s often a fraction of the cost of regular asphalt or concrete.

Tar & Chip / Chip Seal Paving your California driveway, parking lot or ranch road is a great alternative to concrete or hot mix asphalt, often costing half as much! The best way to describe this terrific type of pavement is “Economical, practical & beautiful.” By choosing this great paving method, you’ll add to your property’s value, appearance, and functionality.

Chip Sealing, or Tar and Chip, involves spraying a hot rubber-based emulsion onto the surface, then immediately spreading a layer of uniformly-sized aggregate chips. The hot rubberized asphalt emulsion retains flexibility and will not bleed through the aggregate overlay. The new surface is rolled to seat the aggregate. After a very short curing time, the pavement is swept of excess aggregate and is ready for use.
