Are you ready to get beautiful, cost-effective chip sealing services for your residence or commercial business in St. Peter? Have you read about the benefits, and you’re trying to decide if it’s right for you?

Also referred to as tar and chip, chip sealing is the process of combining hot, liquid tar with crushed up rocks. Even though it’s not as common as concrete or traditional asphalt for driveways, roads, or sidewalks, it’s very likely that you’ve driven or walked on these surfaces. It’s a beautiful, natural surface covering option that is both affordable and durable.

The Benefits of Chip Sealing for Your St. Peter Home or Business


Chip sealing has many benefits beyond just the natural look that you achieve with it. When it comes to cost, chip sealing is a step above gravel and less expensive than asphalt, and it’s more cost-effective than most surface coating materials. You can also customize the look more than other surfacing options by choosing the color and type of rock you want to have laid down.

Its rough texture aids cars in both wet and snowy conditions. It’s also extremely low maintenance. Unlike regular asphalt, sealcoating is not needed. It’s virtually maintenance-free because its cracks seal themselves back together when the weather is hot. It’s also less prone to being an overly hot surface. Plus, you hardly have to wait at all to drive or walk over your chip sealed surface.

How Chip Sealing Works

Tom’s Construction and Paving performs our chip sealing process by first leveling the surface and removing the dirt and debris from the area. In some cases, you can install a tar and chip surface on top of a surface that’s already there. We prep and pack the base with impaction rollers, and then install the liquid asphalt by rolling it on using our state-of-the-art machine. After the liquid asphalt is laid down, our chip spreader will lay down the crushed rock, which is set with a heavy roller. After that, we sweep away any loose rocks. In less than 24 hours, you’ll be ready to get back driving or walking on your rustic, newly chip sealed surface.

Using Chip Sealing for Asphalt Repairs

Chip sealing is great for making repairs to your asphalt pavement. If you are interested in reviving your existing asphalt, chip sealing is for you. By having our team perform the treatment, you can keep your paved surfaces from cracking and breaking. Chip sealing also minimizes the effect of aging, and it costs half the price of putting down an overlay.
