A road base is defined as a layer or layers of bound material intended to give structural integrity to a pavement. … Sub-base consists of a lower quality material, sometimes crusher-run product, or the finer fraction of crushed stone production. It can also be a clean, low plasticity fill material. Sold by the cubic yard.
While shell roadbase is a popular choice in South Florida, many of our Tampa customers actually prefer to use crushed concrete as a base for various applications. Therefore, we stock crushed concrete at our Tampa location, instead of shell roadbase. If you are in the Tampa market and working on a project that calls for a base, please select crushed concrete. If plans call for shell roadbase specifically, please contact us so we can help accommodate your request.
