Our Aggretages for London
Building Sand is a finer grade than sharp sand with smaller particles. It’s often mixed with water and cement to make mortar for laying bricks, patio slabs and blocks. This aggregate, when compared with fine sand, is seen as slightly less coarse and can be free of unwanted additives and this makes it more ideal for projects that require a sturdier base, for example, in conjunction with concrete for laying foundations.
We deliver this aggregate using our 18-ton grab lorry. Our grab gives us great flexibility in ofter congested streets of London. If you planning to build an extension or any other building project, please view below the full list of available aggregates.
