Lightweight Aggregates
Structural Concrete
Provides a high strength concrete which is  typically 25% lighter than normal weight concrete.

 

Growing Medium
Lightweight aggregate can rapidly absorb up to 30% of its own weight when immersed in water which is then released over time providing a controlled environment.

 

 

Lightweight Fill for Geotechnical Applications     
Free draining properties and its light weight allow for a significant reduction in  hydrostatic pressure compared to natural aggregates.  Relieves pressure from backfill to structure.   

 

 

Screened Topsoil  
Screened topsoil is produced from the richest, most fertile materials that are available to us.  NYSDOT (Type A&B) topsoil is available and is tested by a third party laboratory to verify compliance with the specification.

 

Concrete Sand  
Concrete Sand is a coarse sand primarily used in the production of ready-mixed concrete and hot mix asphalt.  It can also be used as pipe sand, bedding sand, and ice control sand.  Our concrete sand is NYSDOT approved.     

 


Mason Sand  

Mason Sand is a coarse sand primarily mixed with cement to make mortar used for laying block, brick, and stone.  It can also be used as pipe sand, utility sand, and bedding material.     

 

Pipe Sand
Pipe sand is a “Light brown colored” sand used to backfill utility pipes such as water, gas, or electric and to backfill trenches.

Manufactured Sand
Manufactured sand is a coarse sand that is made from pulverized rock.  It is useful as a base for leveling under patios, walkways, or other pathways.  Pavers and stone can be laid immediately on manufactured sand when compacted .     

 

Quarry Process “Item #4)  (NYSDOT 304.03 Type 2 Subbase)
A blend of stone (1/4” - 3/4”) with fines to meet compaction requirements.  Used for parking areas, roadways, retaining wall base, patio base, etc.
Commonly referred to as “Item #4”  

 

1/4” Crushed Stone
1/4” clean crushed stone is an aggregate that has been crushed, reduced in size and screened through a 1/4” square screen.  1/4” crushed stone is often used for drainage, driveway top dressing, or landscape cover for visual appeal.    

 

3/8” Crushed Stone
3/8” clean crushed stone is an aggregate that has been crushed, reduced in size and screened through a 3/8” square screen.  3/8” crushed stone is often used for drainage, driveway top dressing, or landscape cover for visual appeal.    

 
    
3/4” Crushed Stone
The most popular size of crushed stone is 3/4” clean crushed stone.  3/4” crushed stone is used for a variety of applications.  Used for driveways, for drainage, as backfill.  

 

1 1/2” Crushed Stone
1 1/2” clean crushed stone is an aggregate that has been crushed, reduced in size and screened through a square screen.  Drainage, construction entrances,

 

ASTM #57 Crushed Stone
ASTM #57 Crushed Stone is a blend of 3/8” and 3/4” crushed stone. Is used in the production of ready mixed concrete, used as a grading material under slabs.

 

ASTM #467 Stone
Is a blend of crushed aggregates with a nominal top size of 1 1/2”.  Primarily specified for use in industrial slabs where the desired result is less shrinkage.

 

5 Inch Minus Item
Is a crushed stone typically in the range of 5” Minus.  Commonly used for construction entrances or thick grading.  Knits together nicely   

 

 

 

White Stone
White stone is usually more expensive than other stones and is usually only chosen when the color or the texture of the stone is important.  White stone  usually used for volleyball courts, golf course bunkers, and sandboxes.  It can also be mixed with cement to make mortar.   

 

Bank Run
Also known as “Run of bank” this is a natural material dug out of the ground and used to manufacture sand and gravel.  Rocks, dirt, silt, and sand etc. may be present.  Fine, medium, and coarse bank run have a variety of uses from driveway sub base, base for roads, under slabs, select fill, trench and septic backfill.
