The Many Ways That Gravel Serves You Every Day
If you’re looking for a more economical solution, then gravel may be the perfect solution for you!
You more often see gravel as décor in a garden area or the occasional gravel parking lot in Ashburn.
What many people don’t realize is that gravel is used in just about everything as either filler, ingredient, or in its pure form.
As a component, you see gravel everywhere in Virginia. Gravel is used as an ingredient in asphalt, and it’s also an ingredient in concrete. That means there’s gravel involved throughout every single asphalt road you see in the United States, and every concrete construction you pass by.
In its purer form, gravel is used in a variety of things as either a cheaper material to build a driveway or filler. If you ask our concrete contractor for gravel, you’ll get a wide variety of options in both colors, and the type of stone that’s used such as gabion stone gravel, cr-6 gravel, bluestone gravel, and many others.
As an additional option, Ashburn Concrete and Asphalt will also recycle asphalt millings. Not only is it a better use for old asphalt, but it provides many benefits. Unlike the standard gravel, asphalt millings don’t wash away as easily and don’t need to be replaced as often by your concrete contractor.
It grows stronger over time and holds up much better to the weather. As a recycled material, asphalt milling is perfect for those who want to be more conservative about the resources that are used for cheaper than the average gravel parking lots.
Not only is gravel cheap, but it’s cheap to maintain by our concrete company. Whether you have a small piece of land that you use for outdoor events, or only have a small parking space for your commercial property, gravel is an affordable alternative to other construction types. It will prevent your gravel parking lots from growing things like weeds, or other vegetation without much work on your part.
When our concrete contractors put the gravel in place, they’ll also be able to level it without as much landscaping work that’s usually a huge hassle with other parking lots. Any pits that are formed can be fixed by our concrete company both quickly and affordably. The only other maintenance required is to have more gravel put in, and we can have it re-leveled every once in a while by our concrete contractors depending on how often you use it.
If you’re looking to make use of our wide variety of gravel, whether it is for decoration or construction, give us a call at Ashburn Concrete and Asphalt!
Our employees will take the time to go through the many options, and recommend what kind of gravel is best for your situation.
