Did you know that traditional blacktop isn’t your only option when it comes to your driveway’s surface? In fact, one of the most popular driveway options in College Station and eastern Texas isn’t blacktop at all—it’s chip seal!
A chip seal driveway, also known as a “tar and chip” driveway, will add years to the lifespan of your pavement. It will also provide additional traction on wet, slippery roads and protection against uneven wear, cracks, and sun-fading.
Most asphalt paving companies only offer traditional asphalt for their driveway installations, but Texas Asphalt Paving Co. goes above and beyond by offering chip seal paving as an alternative.

Benefits of Tar and Chip Driveways
Chip seal is a specific paving technique that combines a layer of hot liquid asphalt with multiple layers of fine aggregate. The compound holds together for years and helps keep most rain and other weather from penetrating the asphalt below.
It’s more affordable than sealcoating, and you may have to do it less often!
The differences because chip and seal coating don’t stop there. Here is where chip seal excels:
- Cost. Whether we’re speaking in terms of immediate savings or long-term returns, chip sealing your driveway costs less. Period.
- Maintenance. Chip sealing isn’t going to require a lot of maintenance. It’s a rugged coating that will give you a smooth surface while preventing most forms of structural damage.
- Look. While a tar chip driveway doesn’t look like normal asphalt, it does add a nice touch. It has a rougher surface (which helps with traction) and it stays black for longer.
Whether you call it “tar and chip,” “chip and tar,” or “chip and seal,” the advantages are the same! A chip seal driveway will give your property a unique look and texture, and it will reduce your overall paving costs.
