Questions About Sand and Gravel

Sand and gravel are often mixed with clay, water and other materials to create an important aggregate called cement. This is in turn helps contractors create buildings, asphalt roads, driveways, and almost any construction project you can think of. Gravel is often taken from rivers and flood plans or produced from crushed rock like granite or limestone. Sand is also created by crushing natural materials obtained from mining or quarrying. Here are some questions you might have if you are shopping for sand and gravel to make cement.

  • How many types of cement are there?
    There are basically two types basic of aggregate cements: hydraulic and non-hydraulic. Hydraulic cements harden because of chemical reactions happening within the cement. Non-hydraulic cements are more basic, and harden as the water within evaporates. You should be able to find both kinds at your local hardware store, or in bulk from a wholesale dealer.

  • Are there any health issues associated with using cement?
    Even if you are outdoors working on a landscape, it is important to wear protective coating while using aggregate materials like cement. Cement can cause severe burns if it is not washed off properly. Dry cement can also cause eye and respiratory damage, so be careful.

  • What uses are there for sand and gravel aside from creating cement?
    Gravel and sand are prominent in most landscapes – even without being combined to create cement. Gravel is used to create decorative stone walkways, fountains, and ponds. Sand is used to create dirt pathways and to help support paving stones. Sand is also added to ground soil to improve its texture and help it absorb water.

    Always remember to think about the physical location and appearance of the sand and gravel dealer. For example, if the business is located in your town or city, you should certainly visit them in person. This will allow you to make all pertinent inquiries about any limestone manufacturing, company discount shop prices, fill soil, contractor fees, crushed rock materials to buy, all natural sand mixes, bulk ground materials, store sales, manufacturer gravel rates, rock mixes for sale, local dealers, asphalt construction and other deals they currently deal with. This way you'll have a much better idea of what they have to offer in regards to gravel materials, limestone, natural sand mixes, bulk discounts and crushed asphalt. You may want to ask about any additional plants or businesses they have to offer consumers like yourself. They may not be a single branch, but rather a nationwide company. Just be sure to always address their customer service skills. The same can be said about literally any business or professional. If they fail to offer excellent customer service, you may want to take your business elsewhere. There are generally a number of competitors to choose from in this day and age. When all is said and done, if they cannot provide you with the materials, mixes for sale, crushed gravel, shop discounts, natural limestone to buy, store construction, bulk supplies and fill soil you're in the market for, you'll need to take your business elsewhere. On a final note, be certain you compare standard rates and hours of operation.
