Gravel

In biz over 83 years because every project we construct is looked at as if it was a masterpiece. Even though concrete and asphalt are robust surfaces to have, gravel roads have that natural feel that goes perfectly together with the landscape. There is a reason many photographers use a well maintained gravel road as a backdrop for some of their most memorable images.

The roads we pave, whether asphalt, gravel or concrete are built to last. Our gravel roads are built with proper drainage as a priority, to get you through the wet seasons without the mud.

Many do-it-yourself types of people think that this type of undertaking would be a “walk-in-the-park”. Even though it can be broken down to four steps, there is a great deal of work and it can be quite the undertaking if you hire the wrong contractor. Let E & G Contractors’ rich history work for you. Let us do it right, the first time!  We understand the work needed to go into every project…

4 step process

  1. Pull a flat box blade across the complete length of the territory being used to make the road. In one speedy swoop the tractor can wrench up all of the grass, small objects, and any medium sized obstacles that are in the way of your new road. Doing this by hand could take weeks.
  2. Pick out the gravel.  You have a few different choices as far as size and a sand/gravel mix.  Each has its own look and feel and has a different use in different climates. Once that choice is made we utilize an tremendously accurate gravel estimator allowing us to get you the exact amount ensuring that you will not have to purchase extra or even be forced to go back for more. With E & G you will get the most accurate estimate around.
  3. Install. Each gravel road we install is made with proper drainage in mind. Granted, we cannot predict everything Mother Nature has to offer (flash floods, earthquakes, etc.) but we have been in business long enough to know what this region of the country has to deal with as far as whether. Our gravel roads are made to resist all the elements.
  4. Maintenance. If installed correctly with a good base, the gravel road should require little upkeep. We know exactly what can cause any number of problems that you could have. Our experts plan for the worst during installation and can fix any problems that the last gravel contractors created.
