Dave Henry Trucking delivers a diverse line of aggregates and related products and services for all parts of the construction industry.
Construction aggregate, is a broad category of coarse particulate material used in construction, including sand,gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregates are the most mined materials in the world. Aggregates are a component of composite materials such as concrete and asphalt concrete; the aggregate serves as reinforcement to add strength to the overall composite material. Due to the relatively high hydraulic conductivity value as compared to most soils, aggregates are widely used in drainage applications such as foundation and French drains, septic drain fields, retaining wall drains, and road side edge drains. Aggregates are also used as base material under foundations, roads, and railroads. In other words, aggregates are used as a stable foundation or road/rail base with predictable, uniform properties (e.g. to help prevent differential settling under the road or building), or as a low-cost extender that binds with more expensive cement or asphalt to form concrete.
Construction Aggregates are used in a number of ways.
As a base material underneath highways, walkways, airport runways, parking lots and railroads.
To aid in water filtration, purification and erosion control.
As a raw material used in combination with other resources to construct many of the items we rely on to sustain our quality of life. These include:
Houses and apartments
Roads, bridges and parking lots
Schools and hospitals
Commercial buildings and retail space
Airports and runways
Square / Rectangle:
Multiply Length times Width to get Square Footage. Then use the Coverage Chart either for depth or rock specifics to get Tons or Yards needed.
Multiply the Base times the Height (or Length times Width) divide in half for Square Footage. Then use the Coverage Chart either for depth or rock specifics to get the Tons or Yards needed.
How Much Material Will You Need?
1 Acre = 43,560 sq.ft.
1 Cubic Yard = 27 cubic feet
1 Ton = 2,000 pounds
