What is Crusher Run?
Crusher Run is primarily used as a compacted sub-base material. It’s a mixture of coarse and fine aggregate that forms a solid, level base of support. Crusher Run is typically placed underneath driveways, concrete slabs, and structural foundations.
What is AASHTO?
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (“AASHTO”) has developed standards for the sizes and use of aggregate. In general, AASHTO classifies aggregate by setting minimum and maximum aggregate sizes for each AASHTO classification. Different AASHTO classifications are used as a load bearing material, fill material and an infiltrating material.
What is Rip Rap?
The term “Rip Rap” is used to describe an aggregate size range 4” and larger. Rip Rap is not only very durable but has a natural look due to its size and irregular shape. For this reason, it is typically placed along shorelines and waterways and is used around bridge foundations, steep slopes, and other locations to protect from scour and erosion. Determining the most effective size of Rip Rap to use depends on several factors including the steepness of the slope, access requirements, and exposure to the elements. As an example, larger Rip Rap is used where a structure or shoreline is continuously exposed to rushing water, but where access is not required.

Benefits of Limestone and Sandstone
Limestone and sandstone are two of the most common sedimentary rocks that can be purchased at the Hog Lick Quarry conveniently located just 2 from the I-79 White Hall exit in Fairmont, WV.
Hog Lick Aggregates Stone Products Types
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate usually in the form of calcite and aragonite. Limestone has a variety of uses including construction, road base material, and water treatment.
Sandstone is a sedimentary rock that consists of sand or quartz grains compressed together. It is one of the most common types of sedimentary rock and is used primarily in construction, cement, and environmental remediation.
Limestone and Sandstone for Construction
Limestone and sandstone are used as building materials and are crushed into powder form to make cement. Limestone and sandstone aggregate are used to create a stable sub-base beneath asphalt paving, poured concrete, or a soil or gravel overlay. Limestone and sandstone are the most popular natural construction materials due to their density and extremely durable composition.
Limestone and Sandstone for Water Treatment and Environmental Remediation
Many wells have acidic water (low pH) that may also contain high amounts of iron or iron byproducts. Limestone increases the pH of acidic water by binding to and neutralizing the free iron in the water. In certain environmentally sensitive areas, it is important not to change the pH of the water source. In such instances “pH neutral” sandstone can be used to have negligent impact on the existing pH of the environment.
Sandstone for Construction
Sandstone is one of the most popular natural construction materials, due to its dense and extremely durable rock composition. Many builders and homeowners choose sandstone for their interior and exterior home structures due to the aesthetics of the stone, and the easy installation process that only requires portland cement or mortar to bond the stones together.
