Wondering how much aggregate you need? Aggregate is delivered in cubic yards, which is measured based on volume. To figure out the volume you need, you'll need to multiply the area by how deep you want the aggregate to be.


Are you concerned that the supplies you’ve been using for particular aspects of your landscaping could be the reason it never thrives the way you’d hoped? In many cases, switching to a different product or product type could help you get better results.


Polystyrene foams are made using blowing agents that form bubbles and expand the foam. In the case of expanded polystyrene, these agents are usually hydrocarbons such as pentane that have a relatively low impact on the environment.


It’s easy to concentrate on the wood or other material when you’re looking at a dock, but it’s not very effective if there’s no place to tie up the boat. Fortunately, marine construction suppliers carry hardware like dock cleats, line holders, and more, so you’re completely covered.


Planning to use concrete in a water environment, such as for a bridge or boat ramp? Concrete is naturally porous, and if water seeps in too deeply it can lead to problems. The right concrete treatments can seal the concrete to improve its durability and longevity.


Quality aggregate has a significant effect on the strength and durability of concrete projects. The aggregate must be equal to or stronger than the final hardened cement, and rounded aggregate particles help create a nearly voidless concrete that is durable and long-lasting.


Today’s concrete technology is able to provide very engineered products that are meant to improve various types of projects, such as buildings, railways, tunnels, and bridges. Construction chemicals ensure quicker construction, increased durability, and superior mechanical strength.


Not sure whether to go with an organic or synthetic binder in your polymeric sand? Essentially, the performance of the joint sand is going to depend primarily on the type of binder used, so you want to be sure you choose the proper type for your particular installation.


If you've worked with wood, you've probably seen the initials MDO. Care to guess what MDO stands for? If you guessed "Medium Density Overlay," you're right. Think of MDO as wood with a rugged coating for enhanced durability in an outdoor environment.


How do you install architectural foam elements? It depends on the specific application, but in most instances decorative elements can be attached to brick, block, drywall, siding, stone, stucco or wood using high strength construction adhesives.


Why does the pharmaceutical industry use aluminum? Because aluminum can be used to protect medicines, tablets, and capsules from degradation caused by exposure to sunlight and oxygen. In fact, aluminum foil can even block out bacteria too.


Engineered wood floors are a newer concept, made with real wood but using multiple wood or wood composite veneers. This can combine multiple species of hardwood trees, and the grain of each veneer runs in different directions, which makes it more stable, and resistant to expansion and contraction.


In 2015, a new species of aquatic reptile was discovered when a scientist realized that the fossil had been mistaken for the plaster cast of a fossil of a different species.


It’s important to keep in mind that some types of latex emulsions have a greater degree of water resistance than others. In fact, not all emulsions will be stable in a cement/water system, so it’s important to do some research ahead of time to make sure you have the right bonding agent.


Hardscape may be a new vocabulary word to you. It refers to non-organic features in your landscape and can include: walls, walkways, fences, planters, gravel and decorative rockwork. According to the experts, adding hardscape elements to your garden is one way to increase your home's curb appeal.


People have been using aggregate for construction for thousands of years, with the Roman Empire being one of the most notable examples. The Romans mixed aggregate with cement to make concrete for buildings like the aqueducts, the Colosseum, and the Parthenon.


Resin adhesives (a type of polymer of synthetic origin) can either be thermosetting or thermostatic. Thermostatic resins can be remolded at high temperatures, whereas thermostatic resins cannot be remolded once the curing process is over.


Expanded polystyerene is highly valued for in architecture for its technical properties. It also has a wide variety of other applications such as packaging and food service. For these reasons, the market value of EPS is expected to exceed $15 billion by the year 2020.


Have you ever had outdoor furniture that began to rust in six months or less? Look for cast aluminum outdoor furniture. Aluminum does not corrode or rust, and because aluminum is so lightweight, the furniture is easy to bring home from the store and move around the patio.


If you are considering building a natural stone path in your yard, there are many stones that would work well, including gravel, sandstone, flagstone, limestone, quartzite, granite, and slate.


Aluminum gutters are incredibly popular, which is why they're available in many colors to match a wide variety of trims. The most popular color, however, is white, because it's versatile. Also, it can easily be painted if your house changes color in the future.


We recognize that there’s often a sense of urgency once you near the end of a particular construction project. Remember, applying concrete sealant is often best in the morning or evening, so you may want to consider returning to the jobsite the morning after you finish everything else to ensure proper application.


Resin glues provide the excellent adhesion and strong bond essential to a wide array of construction processes. They’re particularly effective for wood-based components, wall panels, flooring, floor finishes, countertops and similar elements.


Even if galvanized steel gets scratched through the zinc coating, you still don’t have to worry about it rusting, unlike with painting. That’s because zinc will act as a “sacrificial anode,” and corrode before the steel leaving the steel with its full structural strength.


All-resin and both clear and dyed curing chemicals are water-based, but contain dissipaters that seal and cure freshly poured vertical and horizontal concrete surfaces. These chemicals form a curing membrane on the fresh surface that is neutralized with exposure to the elements.


Did you know that brick is considered to be perhaps the most durable man-made structural building material out there? Bricks are so strong in their molecular composition that they provide exceptional wear resistance in construction contexts.


Galvanizing is a process that coats metal to protect it from the elements. This is essential for most of the materials used in marine construction, including steel wire, steel cables, nuts, bolts, screws, and sheet metal.


Aluminum gutters offer all the advantages of vinyl with none of the disadvantages. Vinyl gutters tend to fade, they grow brittle with time, and they may crack or break under the stress of snow, ice and cold temperatures.


While the family vehicle may be able to hold a few bags of whatever materials you need from your local home improvement store, it’s unlikely that it can accommodate the aggregate materials you’ll need for a massive project. Rather than trying to rent a larger vehicle, it may be easier to let us handle the transportation.


One of the benefits of aluminum is that it is corrosion resistant. This means that it can be used as an effective alloy for mining, material transporting and disposal. Aluminum tubing, because it is rust and toxin resistant, is often a first choice in military armament.


Did you know that the Romans built the first bridge across the Tiber River in Rome on timber piles in 1620 BC? Piling is an ancient construction technique that has enabled humans to build structures in water for hundreds of years.


It’s important to remember that you don’t always have to simply settle for having your aggregate materials left in an inconvenient location on your jobsite. When you need more accurate materials delivery, we may be able to help.


If you’re using the Navy Wall bulkhead construction method, remember that at least half the height of structural pilings should be driven into the ground. If a structural piling is 18 feet long, at least nine feet should be buried in the ground or sea floor.
