About Chip Sealing

Introduction to Chip Sealing

When it comes to commercial properties, maintenance and aesthetics play a crucial role. One aspect that can significantly impact both these facets is driveway paving. A particular paving method that has proven cost-effective and reliable over the years is ‘Chip Sealing’. Characterized by its durability and visual appeal, chip sealing is a widely adopted solution for large scale properties such as commercial complexes, shopping centers, industrial estates, and more.

Understanding Chip Sealing

The process of chip sealing, also known as tar and chip driveway, involves the application of a hot mix of liquid asphalt and small chips or stones on the surface. The chip seal driveway provides a robust layer of protection against the wear and tear induced by heavy traffic, extreme weather, and other deteriorating factors. In essence, chip sealing offers a perfect balance between cost, appearance, and durability, making it an attractive choice for commercial property owners and managers.

The Process of Chip Seal Driveway Installation

Creating a chip and seal driveway begins with a careful preparation of the base surface, whether it’s a parking lot, a walkway, or a long driveway. Once this base has been sufficiently cleaned and leveled, a sealer of hot liquid asphalt is sprayed onto it. Immediately after this, a layer of aggregate chips is spread and then compacted onto the asphalt layer. The chips are embedded into the asphalt, crafting a hard, sturdy surface upon cooling and setting. The whole process is carried out meticulously by professional tar & chip driveway contractors who are well-versed with the subtleties of this paving method.

Benefits of Chip Seal Paving

As a commercial property owner, when you opt for chip seal paving, you stand to gain several benefits. Firstly, chip and seal paving provides a natural and rustic appearance that adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of your property. The gravel-like texture offers excellent traction, reducing the risk of accidents in inclement weather. With plenty of customization options available in terms of stone type and color, you can match the chip and seal driveway with your building’s façade or the landscape around it.

Secondly, chip sealing is more cost-effective compared to traditional asphalt or concrete paving methods. For a fraction of the cost, chip sealing offers a lasting solution that requires lesser maintenance and repairs. Moreover, due to its ability to absorb and dissipate heat, a chip sealed surface is less prone to cracks caused by heat expansion.

Choosing the Right Contractors

Choosing the right tar & chip driveway contractors is vital to ensure a successful chip sealing project. Professional contractors, with their widespread knowledge and hands-on experience, can handle tasks ranging from the basic site assessment to the final finish with utmost precision and care. They can guide you through the entire process, making it hassle-free and smooth.

Opting for Chip Sealing – A Sum up

To sum up, whether you have a large commercial property or are a community looking for a cost-effective walkway, chip sealing is an excellent choice to consider. Its durability, cost-efficiency, and visual appeal make it a highly recommended option for commercial driveway applications. Remember, successful chip sealing is a combination of the right materials, correct application, and trusted contractors.


Ensuring longevity and durability while reducing maintenance cost in commercial properties isn’t a small feat. However, with chip sealing, these goals are conveniently achievable. From providing a sturdy surface that withstands rigorous usage and harsh weather to ensuring a pleasing aesthetic that adds to the property’s value, chip sealing caters to every need. Moreover, with the diversity of colors and materials available, you can customize the chip sealed surfaces to complement the surroundings harmoniously. For a perfect blend of functionality and beauty, entrust your paving needs with chip sealing and witness the transformation that it brings to your commercial property.

About Broad Acres, Michigan


The first settlement on the land that is now Clinton Township was called Gnadenhuetten and was established in 1782 by Rev. David Zeisberg, but closed in 1786. It was organized as “Huron Township” on August 12, 1818, named after what was then known as the Huron River. Because of confusion with another Huron River south of Detroit, on July 17, 1824, the Michigan Territorial Legislature renamed both the township and the river after DeWitt Clinton, the popular governor of New York from 1817 to 1823 who was largely responsible for building the Erie Canal which enabled many settlers to come to Michigan.

Moravian Drive is the township’s oldest road, dating back to the days when Moravian missionaries settled to attempt to convert the local Native Americans.


Clinton Township is in south-central Macomb County. The city of Mount Clemens, the Macomb county seat, is bordered on three sides by the northeast part of the township.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Clinton Township has a total area of 28.37 square miles (73.5 km), of which 28.03 square miles (72.6 km2) are land and 0.35 square miles (0.91 km), or 1.22%, are water. The Clinton River, for which the community is named, is formed from three branches within the township. It runs east into Harrison Township, where it flows into Lake St. Clair. The township is home to many parks, notably George George Memorial Park.


There are two unincorporated communities in the township:

  • Broad Acres is located in the southeastern portion on M-3/Gratiot Avenue between 15 Mile and Quinn Roads (42°32′57″N 82°54′08″W / 42.54917°N 82.90222°W / 42.54917; -82.90222; Elevation: 610 ft./186 m.).
  • Cady is located in the southwestern portion at Utica and Moravian Roads (42°33′37″N 82°57′52″W / 42.56028°N 82.96444°W / 42.56028; -82.96444; Elevation: 614 ft./187 m.). It was founded in 1833 by Chauncey G. Cady. Cady served for a time as township supervisor and was also a member of the state legislature. It had a post office from 1864 until 1906.
