What is a Gravel Aggregate Base?
A GAB is a base layer for pavement that consists of small stones and sand called aggregates mixed with gravel according to the conditions. It is laid between the underlying soil and the top layer of pavement, whether that’s asphalt or concrete. This gravel aggregate base provides stability and allows water to flow away from pavement.

Moisture Control: A high quality GAB will be mixed from larger aggregates like gravel and soil elements like sand to provide tiny cracks and holes for water to flow away. To ensure enough drainage, the base layer will also be graded for a proper slope.
