Material Calculator

The Calculator helps you to estimate the tonnage of material required for your job.

To use the Material Calculator:

  1. enter the width, length, and thickness of your project,
  2. select the thickness in feet or inches
  3. click on either rock w/ fines, clean rock, or a custom density
  4. the rock with fines and clean rock selections will automatically complete density
  5. The Custom selection allows you to enter a rock density in the Density field.
  6. Use the values for Sand or Dirt below, or enter you own value
  7. click on the Calculate button

 

The calculator will estimate the number of tons of material that you will require.

Densities may vary somewhat between different loads.  
Default values are assigned for clean rock, screening or sand and rock
with fines are good standard "rules of thumb" for estimating.

Here are the densities for several of our material products

Screening or sand = 3000
Dirt = 2600
