Use Crushed Stone in your Next Project
Crushed stone is a crowd favorite because it is so versatile. You can implement crushed stone as a base material for pavers, or to dress up an area where people walk or drive. Crushed stone grades are categorized by the size of the stone material after it’s been crushed down. Differently sized stone will serve different purposes. The professionals at Lamarche McGuinty, Inc. will help you figure out the right type of crushed stone for your unique project.
This material is what is known as a construction aggregate, created by mining a rock formation and then using a crusher to break the rock down into different sized pieces. Unlike gravel, which may sound very similar to crushed stone, this is more rounded in shape and is made by more natural processes like weather and erosion.
From construction to agricultural purposes, crushed stone serves a host of purposes across many industries. This is because it is one of the most abundant and accessible natural resources on the planet.
Almost any type of rock can be used in the processing of crushed stone. Listed below are some of the most commonly used types of stone that are crushed down for the making of this material. Keep in mind that this list does not, by any means, include every single type of stone that can be used.
