  • 1/2 – 3/4″ – Size # 7 stone averages in 1/2 – 3/4″ in size and is overall a gray color.
  • 3/4″ – Size #57 stone varies in size from using a #4 sieve to a 3/4″ sieve. This size of crushed stone is cubical in shape. It’s used in projects where there is a specification for crushed stone counts and mixes.
  • 3/8″ – Size # 8 crushed stone is often referred to as clean or 3/8″ washed stone.
  • 1 1/2″ – This size of crushed stone is mainly used in road construction projects. It is also used in drainage, septic systems and dry wells.
  • 2 1/2″ – The DOT #2 standard size used for government construction projects. It is used as road base, construction site entry and exit ways.

Applications of Crushed Stone:

  • Road base – Crushed stone can be used as structural foundation for paving roads. Used in government and residential construction projects. It’s also used in driveways, parking lots, patios, slab foundations, and walkways.
  • Soil stabilization – Recycled concrete is often used in combination with fly ash or lime to enhance soil.
  • Pipe bedding – Underground utilities use crushed concrete as bedding to create a firm foundation.
  • Landscape material – Pathways, driveways, garden beds, erosion structures, water features, and walls can all use recycled concrete to support these areas with fill material.
  • Drainage materials – Crushed stone can be used in drainage pipes and for utilities.

Benefits of Onsite Crushing for Construction Projects:

ReAgg specializes in crushing aggregate and concrete into usable sizes for construction projects. We can come to the construction site with complete crushing equipment. We bring a conveyer, loader, excavator, and the staff needed to operate the machinery. Our experienced staff also loads the materials to crush according to the needed specifications.

Crushing onsite in Capitol Heights and surrounding areas reduces the cost of disposal for waste materials. Instead of hauling off the waste, onsite crushing can be reused on the site for many different applications.
