Crushed Concrete Rock
Crushed concrete rock, or angular rock, is produced by crushing (recycling) old concrete from roads, parking lots or demolition sites. It is an environmentally-friendly and cost effective material that can be used in a wide variety of commercial or personal projects.
Crushed Concrete Uses
Crushed concrete can be used as material in temporary roads, construction staging areas, drilling pads, building pad caps, construction entrances, drainage fill and flexible base under paving.
Smaller pieces of concrete can be used as gravel in new construction projects. Sub-base gravel is laid down as the lowest layer in a road, with fresh concrete or asphalt poured over it. The US Federal Highway Administration often uses this material for the construction of new highways.
Additionally, large-sized crushed concrete can be used to fill gabion cages, which can then stacked together to provide cost-effective retaining walls. Stacked gabions can also be used to build cost-efficient privacy walls in certain situations.
Crushed Rock Is Environmentally Friendly
Prior to recycling, old concrete was routinely trucked to landfills for disposal. Greater environmental awareness and protection laws has expanded the common use of crushed concrete to many other commercial construction projects.
We use multiple concrete crushing plants throughout North Central Texas. In most cases, they are conveniently located near service projects, which helps us keep transportation and construction costs down for our customers. By supplying and delivering crushed concrete aggregate, we are:
- Keeping concrete debris out of landfills
- Conserving natural resources by reducing the need for gravel mining, water, coal, oil and gas
- Facilitating the use of recycled concrete as a base material for roadways, which reduces pollution caused by trucking material
- Create more employment opportunities for our concrete crushing suppliers
