About Chip Sealing

Introduction to Chip Sealing

In the dynamic world of commercial properties, chip sealing serves as a highly efficient and cost-effective method for pavement maintenance. Also known as ‘tar and chip’, the technique provides a durable and visually appealing finish to driveways, parking lots, and various high traffic areas. Throughout this comprehensive guide, we will explore the nitty-gritty details of chip sealing, its benefits, its process, and tips to maximize its efficiency.

Understanding Chip Sealing

Chip sealing, strikingly different from regular asphalt paving, is a process that involves applying a layer of hot asphalt or liquid asphalt cement to an existing pavement and then using gravel to cover the layer. Chip seal driveways and pavements can withstand harsh conditions while providing an impressive aesthetic appeal. This method provides a rougher texture than conventional asphalt driveways, which ensures better traction, especially in wet or snowy conditions.

The Process of Chip Sealing

The process of chip sealing requires expertise and professional skill. Tar & chip driveway contractors start by cleaning the existing pavement to ensure the asphalt adheres properly. Next, they heat a layer of liquid asphalt and uniformly apply it to the surface. Immediately following this, they spread a layer of loose chips or aggregates onto the hot asphalt. Finally, they use a roller to press these chips into the binder firmly. This process, when done correctly, forms a strong, locked-in layer that provides a unique, rustic finish.

Benefits of Chip Seal Driveway and Pavement

When considering various options for commercial property surfaces, the benefits of chip seal driveways and pavement make it a superior choice. Here are some rewards of choosing this technique:

1. Durability: Chip seal paving can withstand harsh conditions, including extreme temperatures and heavy vehicular traffic, making them especially suitable for commercial properties.

2. Cost-effective: Compared to traditional asphalt paving, chip and seal paving significantly reduces cost – both in terms of initial installation and maintenance.

3. Appeal: Chip seal driveways bring a distinctive, natural-looking beauty that traditional asphalt or concrete surfaces cannot compete with.

4. Safety: The rough surface texture reduces skidding, making it safer than other surfaces, especially in wet conditions.

Local Optimization of Chip Sealing

Given the vast benefits of chip sealing, local businesses are leaning towards adopting this excellent method. Whether you own a property in the bustling city or bustling town, opting for the chip seal technique will enhance the durability, visual appeal, and value of your property.

Engaging with Chip Seal Paving Contractors

When planning to install a chip seal driveway or pavement, it is crucial to engage with experienced contractors. Tar & chip driveway contractors possess the expertise needed to execute the chip sealing process smoothly and efficiently, ensuring long-lasting and aesthetic results. By hiring professionals, you are guaranteed an effective chip sealing application that holds its ground even in harsh weather conditions and extreme traffic.

Valuable Tips for Installing a Chip Seal Driveway

1. Prepare Properly: Begin by thoroughly cleaning the area. Ensuring there is no debris or loose stones will allow the hot asphalt to adhere properly during the chip seal process.

2. Choose Quality Materials: The quality of the materials used directly impacts the durability of your chip seal driveway. Consider the local climate and traffic while selecting the right asphalt and aggregates.

3. Professional Installation: Trusting professionals with the installation process is crucial because the effectiveness of the chip and seal driveway hinges on precision during the installation process.


In conclusion, the effectiveness of chip sealing for commercial properties cannot be overstated. This process is sustainable, durable, and adds unique aesthetic value that regular paving methods cannot match. When executed properly by experienced professionals, chip sealing can provide an efficient yet economical solution for paving commercial properties. So, elevate your commercial property paving with the unique solution of the chip seal method, ensuring durability and aesthetics in one go.

About Cady, 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.
