We know the more you learn about concrete, the better informed decisions you will be able to make for your home, business, or community. Below are resources for you to learn more about concrete and why it is the most versatile, affordable, and green material for your construction needs.



Basics of Concrete - Aggregate

The term "aggregate" denotes a wide range of granular materials that may be used in the production of concrete, such as:

  • Gravel
  • Crushed Stone
  • Natural Sand
  • Manufactured Sand

These are basically divided into two categories: Fine Aggregate and Coarse Aggregate based upon their particle size.

Fine Aggregates consist of particles smaller than 1/4", usually sand or crushed stone

Coarse Aggregates are those with particle sizes larger than 1/4"

Aggregates make up 60% to 80% of the concrete volume
