Pike’s construction aggregates are locally mined materials used in construction, including stone dust, sand, gravel, crushed stone, and recycled concrete. Due to the relatively high hydraulic conductivity value as compared to most soils, aggregates are widely used in drainage applications for foundations and french drains, septic drain fields, retaining wall drains, and road side edge drains. Aggregates are also used as base material under foundations, roads, and railroads. Aggregates are used widely for landscaping.
Pike’s aggregates are used in stand alone applications and as a component of composite materials such as concrete and asphalt pavements. Our aggregates are produced to meet specifications for the manufacture of hot mix asphalt pavement and concrete. These products include specific types of coarse and fine aggregate designed for such uses as additives to asphalt and concrete mixes.
The Aggregate Calculator helps you to estimate the aggregate tonnage required for your job. To use the Aggregate Calculator, simply enter the width, length, and thickness of your job, and click on whether you are measuring the thickness in feet or inches. Next, click on either Base Rock, Drain Rock, or a custom density selection. The Base Rock and Drain Rock selections will fill in the density of the rock for you; the Custom selection allows you to enter a rock density in the Density field. Finally, click on the "Calculate" button. The calculator will estimate the number of tons of aggregate that will be required.
Please note that densities will vary somewhat between different loads, but the default values assigned for Base Rock and Drain Rock are good standard "rules of thumb" for estimating.
