What are aggregates?

Aggregates are materials that are usually mixed with cement and water to form concrete. There are several different kinds of aggregate, and they can fulfill different purposes in construction. For instance, ballast can make strong concrete when mixed correctly, and building sand is used for bricklaying.

There are a number of different aggregates, each with different properties. Here’s a quick rundown of each type:

  • Sharp sand - Often known as concrete sand or grit sand, this is usually used to render and floor screeds, as concrete in a construction project, or even to pave courses.
  • Building sand - Building sand is usually mixed with water and concrete to create mortar. It’s typically used for bricklaying and pointing, but also sees use in patios. You might see building sand by its other name, soft sand.
  • Ballast - This is a mixture of sharp sand and shingle. It’s mainly used in concrete mixes with water to create a strong mix that is used for foundations and footings. It can also be used as a base for home extensions, such as a conservatory.
  • Shingle - Shingle consists of small stones and is usually mixed with cement and water to form a strong concrete mix. This is then used to create paths and drives with excellent water drainage properties.

Aggregate availability depends on local natural sources, but we stock plenty to ensure that our customers have enough for their projects. If you’re looking to place a large order, then do get in touch with us to ensure that we can supply you with the amount you need.

Aggregates are usually ordered in large quantities to fulfill a number of different purposes. They are also quickly used up when mixed with water and cement, which is why it’s important to buy a little more than what you think you need. If you’re unsure how much you’ll need, then we have a handy calculator that will help you decide how much is enough. This also ensures that you don’t need to buy or collect more aggregate in the future.

If you need help deciding which aggregates to use, then take a look at our aggregate FAQ to learn more. Alternatively, you can always contact us for more information. Speak to one of our experts today to learn more about aggregates and their various properties.

About Alton

Alton is a lively and thriving market town that offers a wonderful mix of historic buildings and modern shops. People from all over the country visit Alton for its friendly community and wide range of shops that are open during the Tuesday market day. Alton is also known for running many different fairs, and it’s also home to a number of intriguing museums with fine collections of local history. A good example of this is the Curtis Museum, showcasing a range of interesting objects like a celebrated Roman cup that was once near Selborne.

The birth of Alton dates back to before the Bronze Age. It was once a town that grew prosperous thanks to ale brewing and woolen cloth production. Many of the old Tudor-style buildings are still intact, giving it a wonderful charm that is unique to this part of Hampshire.

Alton has always been a popular destination for tourists, and the charming community has managed to draw in more than a few long-term residents. As such, building projects are starting to pop up across Alton which demand high-quality aggregates.
