Harris Grab Services can supply a variety of stones for construction purposes such as building houses, driveways, roads or garden walls. See a full list of our available construction aggregates including various types of stone on our products page.

MOT Type 1

MOT Type 1 is a variety of crushed stone often used in the construction of roads (hence its name being an acronym for Ministry of Transport).

Crushed Concrete

Crushed concrete comprises asphalt waste from building projects, which can be reused. The angular surfaces mean it is ideal to be compacted or rolled to form concrete foundations, roads or floors as it makes a stable, interlocking base.

Tarmac Planing

Tarmac road planings are created when a tarmac road or footpath’s surface layer is removed, and they are sometimes known as road scrapings or road scalpings.

FAQs


Stone is utilised for its strong physical characteristics – it is often crushed and sorted into various sizes for use in concrete. It can be coated with bitumen to create asphalt or it can be used ‘dry’ as a bulk filling material in a variety of construction projects. Stone is most often used in the construction of roads and concrete structures.

Gravel is created naturally through the process of weathering and erosion. Gravel can be extracted from riverbeds or from the some of the same quarries which are used to source crushed stone.  

As a result of the crushing process, pieces of crushed stone generally have more angled surfaces than pieces of gravel would have. Crushed stone can vary from extremely fine dust to large rocks in size.  Piece of gravel are more rounded than pieces of crushed stone on, and often smaller on average. Gravel comes in various sizes too, from 6 mm to 50 mm.
