"How many yards will cover my driveway, foundation, french drain, etc.? "And how many ton is that?"
To assist you in finding out how much material you need, use our material calculator to estimate the material for your project.
Contact us with any questions or if you need assistance deciding what type of stone may be best suited for your project.
The Calculator helps you to estimate the tonnage of material required for your job.
To use the Material Calculator:
enter the width, length, and thickness of your job,
select the thickness in feet or inches
click on either Rock w/ Fines (ie.,2A, 3A mod. 6x0, etc), Clean Rock (1B, 2B, #3, #4, etc) , Fines/Dust or Top Soil/Dirt
the Rock w/ Fines, Clean Rock, Fines/Dust and Top Soil/Dirt selections will automatically enter the density of the material
click on the Calculate button
The calculator will estimate the number of tons of stone that you will need.
Our convenient Material calculater is now avalable as a free android app in the Google play store . Next time you are on you job site and you are not sure how much more material you need, pull out your android smart phone and use our app to esimate.
Please note that densities will vary somewhat between different loads, but the default values assigned for Clean Rock, Rock with Fines and Fines/Dust, are good standard "rules of thumb" for estimating.
Please note again that this is only an estimate and
weights will change with moisture content and the amount of fines with
the rock but this should give you a good idea of the amount of stone
you may need for your project.
