Why Compact?

Soil, sub-base, asphalt all have small voids and air pockets that if not compacted will lead to problems such as surface compression, sinking, subsidence and water damage.  Expansion and contraction of water can lead to severe damage of foundations, roads, walkways, pavers and walls.  By increasing the density of the underlying material compaction increases the materials load bearing capacity.  Compaction reduces the small voids and air pockets reducing the risk of water damage. 

Applications

  • Heavy Soil, Silt and Clay (Cohesive Materials <20% Granular)

  • Gravels, Light Soil, and Sand (Granular Materials >20%)

  • Asphalt (Bituminous Materials)

  • Pavers

    • To prevent surface damage to pavers, ToolLines.com recommends the use of paving pads, available as a related item for each compaction unit listed.  This is especially important if the pavers have an uneven surface.  Alternatively, you might be able to get away with using, landscape fabric, compaction sand, thin carpeting or cardboard.
