How does your driveway look today?

What if you could have a permeable, crack-free and slip resistant granite, quartz or marble driveway for the same cost of interlock?

You’d have a far more durable, practical and better looking surface without brick displacement or weeds, but you’d also have one of the most unique driveways in Canada.

PurePave is a porous pavement derived from Resin Bound paving, created for Canadian climates.

PurePave has excellent longevity because it mitigates water damage by design, is flexible and the sun can’t oxidize the binder. The finished pavement is also 100% salt resistant. Faster snow melt and less ice build up in the winter is another nice bonus. And yes, you can snow plow this to your heart’s content.

This porous pavement is 4 inches thick with grid stabilizer; made with patented PurePave Technologies binder.

TAC Ottawa’s Architect, Engineer, Project Manager, Office administrator and Operations officer are at your service every step of the way.

PurePave takes the benefits even further by addressing every pavement’s weak spot; base movement over long periods:

Once we’ve built a laser-graded permeable base and installed our grid stabilizing system (made with 100% recycled plastic), it’s time to apply the binder course. A standardized clean stone is mixed with a binder and power troweled smooth. The final layer is built with a high-end GemStone of your choosing and is blended with resin by Purepave Technologies.

Purepave resin is unaffected by the sun, chemicals or salt. It’s much stronger than any asphalt binder.

How we can offer a 10-year renewable Warranty:

Before PurePave, Canadian decorative surface options were very limited. People had two expensive options: stamped concrete or interlock. These surfaces have their pros and cons, but no matter how you look at it, when the ground shifts, your investment’s in trouble. These surfaces crack or get shifted out of place over time. Then there’s nothing you can do but completely redo it to get it back in shape. No thanks!

PurePave surfaces are constructed with layers of flexible pavement over top of a permeable base, installed by our base prep crew. After removing asphalt or weak base material, we compact the area, apply landscape materials, reconstruct the base to an appropriate depth, install load-support base structure and laser-fine grade the finish. All that before we begin installing the pavement!

Decorative Porous Surfacing

After the base prep is complete, it’s time to start paving. Our PurePave crew will arrive and begin by installing the grid load-support system. The grids lock together and are filled with permeable aggregate before the binder course of Purepave is applied. Once we’ve installed the binder course, it’s time to get fancy. Natural Granites or Quartz aggregates are washed, cleaned, dried at 600 degrees and shipped to our facilities from all over Ontario before they arrive at your home. The decorative stone of your choice is paved into the surface and mixed with our proprietary UV-resistant resin to completion.

It’s no secret that Ottawa pavement gets shifted around every year. That’s why it’s so important to install a surface that mitigates water damage, base heaving, salt damage and also helps to reduce the harmful effects of storm water run off. Finally, a high-end pavement without the sunk cost!

“Workers were great as was the experience.”

“I think we are going to get a very nice return when we sell the house. This was a big project that tuned out great. Good group of guys here.”

“We were impressed with this service and result. I like having the option to use your roadway process to make this driveway more like smooth asphalt if we want at some point too.”

Randy and Rhonda P. says: We heard about tar and chip Ottawa through a friend who went to the homeshow in Ottawa. We wanted to get our driveway paved, but we weren’t looking forward to the cost (about $3,000 more), time to install or maintenance of asphalt. Taylor came…
