Material Supplies


At B&M Skips, we don’t simply provide skips. We can also supply the materials needed to complete the jobs that you may need for your residential or commercial property.

We can provide a number of materials, in varying sizes, depending on the nature of your project. Let’s face it; the choice of aggregate is crucial for your construction and could be the key to lasting results. Here is the essential information that you may need.

Sharp Sand

Sharp sand is a versatile material that can be applied to various construction tasks. It is most commonly mixed with concrete and has a gritty texture that makes an ideal base for laying pavement or fixing garden space. Especially when it requires good drainage properties.

Sharp sand is the type that is often seen in hourglasses. It isn’t, however, suitable for sandpits and other play areas. Moreover, it’s best used when strength is prioritised over flexibility.

Type One consists of either crushed granite, limestone or clean crushed concrete.

This type of ballast is most often used as a sub-base for roads, paths and driveways, along with being ideal for building sub-bases. Type One is also used for hard-standings and haul roads.
