How much do aggregates weigh?

Gravel is the heaviest around 2,860 pounds per cubic yard. All the other aggregates are around 2,600 pounds per cubic yard.


What is the volume of a 40 lb bag of aggregates?

The volume in a 40 lb bag will vary somewhat, but will generally be around 11 to 12 Litres per bag (28.33 Litres = 1 Cubic Foot).


Can I have the aggregates delivered?

Yes, all aggregates can be delivered with our small, 5 yard trucks or our larger 20 yard trucks and combined with any one other bulk material order up to a maximum of 20 yards for $75.00 per delivery in London and surrounding area.


How many yards do I need?

Multiply length in feet, times width in feet, to get the number of Square Feet. Divide the Square Feet by 27 and the answer by 12 times the number of inches of product you want to use. For Example: For an Area 10 feet by 10 feet 4 inches deep the equation would be 10 X 10 = 100 divided by 27 = 3.7037 divided by 12 =.3086 multiplied by 4 inches = 1.23 yards.
