Crushed Limestone Rock

Image of Crushed Limestone by Aggregates Now

Crushed limestone is an angular rock, typically produced by mining and crushing suitable rock deposits into desired sizes. ​It is one of the most accessible natural resources and a major basic raw material used by construction, agriculture and other industries. It differs from gravel in that the latter has round edges and is formed through natural weatherization and erosion.

​We supply and deliver crushed limestone rock produced from premier quarries throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Crushed Limestone Benefits

  • Mixed In Concrete – Concrete is a combination of cement, water, sand and crushed aggregate. In some cases, crushed limestone will be used as the aggregate material to create a more durable concrete product.
  • Road Base – Roads and highways require a durable base that will safely withstand the high traffic and earth’s harsh elements. Crushed limestone is an affordable, reliable road base option for many contractors.
  • Pipe Bedding – Pulverized limestone rock does not expand and contract, making it a safe and reliable option for bedding underground pipes. It’s material consistency preserves and insulates pipes from natural shifts in the earth’s soil as a result of moisture, surface traffic or other natural soil patterns.
  • Structural Fill –  In new construction, crushed stone is used to fill the area beneath the slab. This keeps the concrete level, allows for proper and efficient drainage and reduces settlement cracks.
  • Driveways – Some homeowners like the idea of a gravel driveway, but would prefer to have other color options. Crushed lime is able to offer all of the benefits of gravel, but provides a soothing, natural tan coloration.
  • Railroad Ballast – Railroad ballasts support the rail ties and diverts water away from the tracks. This material is chosen to offer angular support and durability.
  • Rip Rap – Crushed limestone is affordable, convenient, and reliable, making it an alternative to rip rap in the use of retaining walls and erosion control.

Crushed Limestone Uses

  • Limestone is very durable and resistant to weathering
  • It is lighter and more versatile than granite and gravel
  • It is ideal for maintaining natural water flow and drainage needs
  • Its various grade sizes enable it to be used in a wide range of practical applications
  • Crushed limestone is readily accessible and offers the highest value for the lowest cost among construction aggregate
