as base materials under foundations, roads,
railroads and drainage."
The products, it notes, include bases,
specialty sands, rip rap/gabion and drain
rock. "About 60 percent of our sales by
volume include aggregates for asphalt
concrete and Portland cement concrete,"
The company also offers asphalt concrete.
"We adhere to pavement specifications and
also develop custom mix designs to meet
client requests," Granite says.
"Our products include hot, warm and
cold mix asphalt as well as rubberized asphalt concrete," it states. "Surface durability,
temperature, reflection, roadway noise and
volume of traffic are all factors in selecting
appropriate pavement mix design."
Granite adds that it also promotes the
use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP)
and warm-mix asphalt, which conserve
materials and energy and reduce emissions. "Using RAP is usually more cost
efficient, and it's often equal or greater
in quality than traditional methods," the
