Aggregates are literally at the foundation of our communities.
Crushed stone, sand and gravel (natural aggregates) are among the most abundant natural resources in the world. Many industries including construction, agriculture, metallurgy and chemical processing companies use these basic raw materials.
Most aggregate is used in road construction and in concrete and asphalt pavements. Aggregates are also integral ingredients in cement and concrete. They are used for buildings, bridges and pre-cast blocks as, well as for drainage bases under roads and sewers.
Aggregates are also used for building driveways, ditch construction, public works, erosion control, embankments, backfill, and landscaping. Our finer grades of crushed stone are in demand as a raw material in bricks, concrete, and asphalt.
Listed below are materials we have on hand, ready to deliver, in our stockyard.
Sand is a natural occurring material that is used for a wide range of applications we often don’t think about. A few examples would include sand used to make roads, maintain golf courses and as paver base.

Mason sand can be thought of as a finer version of concrete sand. While the rock composition of masonry sand is often similar to concrete sand, its smaller grains make it quite a bit more attractive when used in construction. Mason sand is usually washed as well.
Concrete Sand is coarse sand, washed and screened to a larger grit than Mason Sand. Concrete sand is usually made up of gneiss, trap rock, granite or limestone. Most commonly it is used to mix with cement and hot asphalt. It is also a great for use as a leveling base for patios and above ground pools.
