About Chip Sealing

Understanding Chip Sealing

Chip sealing is a specialized process used in the paving industry, offering a versatile and economical option for maintaining and enhancing commercial properties. Whether you are a property manager looking for cost-effective ways to maintain your asphalt surfaces or a developer seeking aesthetic options that are both durable and affordable, chip sealing provides a solution that is truly worth considering. The unique combination of asphalt and stone offers a unique finish commonly used on driveways, roadways, and commercial parking lots.

The Process of Chip Sealing

The process of chip sealing involves various critical steps. The first step usually involves thoroughly cleaning the surface that requires treatment. Next, a layer of hot liquid asphalt is applied, which acts as a binding agent. After this, the contractors cover the asphalt with crushed stones or chips, hence the term ‘chip seal driveway’ or ‘chip and seal driveway’. A roller then compacts the surface before sealing to ensure the chips are adequately embedded into the asphalt. Cooling and setting the top layer then takes place before the area can endure any traffic.

Benefits of Chip Sealing

The benefits of chip sealing are numerous, starting with cost-effectiveness. Compared to traditional asphalt paving, chip sealing is significantly more affordable due to the use of fewer materials and the elimination of costly equipment. Furthermore, the process of chip sealing is quicker, meaning less disruption to your business operations.

Another benefit of chip sealing is its durability. The addition of the chip seal layer creates a protective shield against harmful UV rays and weather-related damage, making it perfect for use in harsh climates. Also, the rough surface texture of a chip and seal driveway provides excellent skid resistance, ensuring the safety of vehicles and pedestrians alike.

Choosing the Right Tar & Chip Driveway Contractors

While chip sealing is a relatively straightforward process, using professionals like tar & chip driveway contractors is highly recommended. The success of chip sealing lies in correctly executing each stage of the process, an area where experienced contractors excel. Experienced professionals can help you select the right type of chips for your project, ensuring the finished surface meets your aesthetic and functional requirements. Additionally, seasoned contractors understand the precise ratios of tar and chips required for a durable surface, helping to extend the longevity of your investment.

Localising Your Chip Seal Paving Project

Enlisting local contractors for your chip seal paving project is beneficial for several reasons. In addition to supporting local businesses, local contractors understand the specific climate and regional considerations that play a crucial role in the durability of chip sealing. They are also likely to be familiar with regional regulations and permitting requirements, ensuring your project is compliant.

Chip and Seal Paving for Commercial Properties

While chip and seal paving is commonly associated with driveways or residential roads, it is also an excellent choice for commercial properties. Whether it’s a restaurant’s parking lot, a school’s playground, or an office’s pathways, chip and seal provide a durable, budget-friendly, and visually attractive solution. Additionally, chip and seal paving requires minimal maintenance, an added bonus for busy facilities managers or property owners.


Chip sealing helps commercial property owners balance aesthetic appeal, durability, and budgets. Its versatility, combined with the mix of affordability and longevity, makes chip sealing an attractive solution for commercial paving needs. Get the most from this durable and cost-effective paving option by choosing experienced chip seal driveway contractors who can execute the process flawlessly and according to your unique requirements.

About Macomb, Michigan


The founders of Macomb Township arrived in the early 19th century in search of flat and fertile farmland, like that near the Clinton River. Many of these early settlers were of German descent, and the German influences remain today. The Township of Macomb was officially approved by the Legislative Council on March 7, 1834.

The township was named in honor of General Alexander Macomb, who was a highly decorated veteran of the War of 1812; his successful mercantile family owned most of Macomb County at one time.

Macomb Township was a large part of the lumber and logging industry of southeast Michigan in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Logs would be transported south from Wolcott Mill in Ray Township, down the Middle Branch of the Clinton River to sawmills. Romeo Plank Road is a historic route that follows the river on its western side.

Macomb Township experienced significant growth during the period of 2000–2008, boasting a 48% increase in population.
