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.

All About Professional Excavating & Grading Services

Factors affecting your asphalt base include:Strength and Stability: A gravel base will be laid in varying thicknesses to create an even surface for the pavement layer. In order to remain stable, professional pavers will compact the gravel base to ensure that it has a smooth surface that will support the weight of vehicles.

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.
