Tar & Chip
Tar and Chip is a paving process in which we combine crushed stone and an emulsified liquid asphalt to make a natural looking durable driving surface. Ideal for big areas and long driveways because it is much more cost effective than blactop.
Whether you're paving a driveway or an airport runway, an asphalt application provides a cost-effective way to create a safe and smooth surface, for wheels and heels.
"Our home is located on Big Cobbler Mountain near Hume, VA. We have a very long driveway that starts out with a gentle 5-degree slope, increasing to near 30 degrees at the top. The increase in pitch occurs at a sweeping 90-degree turn. Our previous gravel driveway proved unsatisfactory, particularly after heavy rains. Tar and Chip was suggested to us, with a strong recommendation for Kerrigan Paving & Tar and Chip. Their work has proven most satisfactory. After job completion, we had no signs of erosion, despite the heavy rains this Spring and Summer. Moreover, the driveway has a great appearance, provides a smooth ride, and elicits compliments from visitors.
Jim Kerrigan's team completed the job to our total satisfaction. The team is highly experienced and skilled at every aspect of their work; moreover, they exercised great diligence to ensure no emulsified tar spillover on adjacent pavers near the garage entry point. We highly recommend their services."

"In May 2015, my family in Haymarket, Virginia, had three long driveways paved with asphalt by Jim Kerrigan’s company. While we learned about Kerrigan through the recommendation of a friend at church, before we committed to Kerrigan I carefully researched the work of other paving companies to compare the quality of their projects and prices. Kerrigan’s prep work included adding an underlayment everywhere and Jim suggested that he make it particularly thick in several places that needed to be built up. Thus the driveways not only meet, but exceed, our expectations. All three driveways turned out beautiful.
The six youngsters who live here use the driveways every day as their playground for scooters, bikes and basketball. They play on the driveways more than they play on their playsets. We have received nothing but compliments from visitors. "
