Do I need to be on site when delivered?

How can I pay?

Can we "spread" the rock in my driveway?

Providing there are no branches and wires in the way we will spread the gravel. A "spread" is when the driver dumps the rock out while moving forward using the tailgate to help control the flow of the rock. This is a courtesy we provide for our customers.

How does the pricing work?

The pricing is based upon the location, product, and fees.  We can give you an estimate and approximate dollar amount.

Smokey Point Concrete and Skagit Readymix - pervious concrete

Pervious concrete has a 15-25% void structure and allows 3-8 gallons of water per minute to pass through each square foot - accounting for far more than is generated during most rain events. Freeze / Thaw is not a concern in western Washington as our temperatures and freeze / thaw conditions are nominal. It is highly unlikely a majority of any pervious surface will become 100% clogged.
