Mum saves £5k on new driveway after she revamps tarmac with £20 paste

A woman who didn't fancy spending a fortune on transforming her driveway has found a cheap way of doing it.

The mum decided it was time to revamp her drive after noticing the black tarmac had dried and faded over time.

But she was put off by the cost of getting it re-done professionally after being quoted an eye-watering £5,500.

She looked at cheaper ways to jazz it up and decided to give the tarmac restorer a try, which cost her less than £20 a bottle.

Next she shared it on Facebook where the post secured over 1,300 likes on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group.

Many fans rushed to tell the mum that her work was "brilliant".

She said: "Didn't want to spend a lot of money on our driveway so instead of resurfacing we decided to give tarmac restore a go.

"So glad we did. Costing us around £120 for this area."

The woman explained how she used a brush and a large roller to cover the drive.

In the post, she added: "Some of our tarmac was rough so we used the brush but most went on quite happily with the roller."

"In the middle of doing ours too it's fab my neighbours thought I'd had new tarmac."

After seeing the difference, the mum then decided to do the same round the back.
