What is rip rap?

Rip rap is an extremely strong and durable engineered stone with a natural-looking finish. Because it is such a durable material, it is used to protect buildings, structures like bridges, and shorelines from damage caused by water sources, like oceans and rivers, and even ponds and pools. Rip rap can be cut into all sizes, ranging from a few inches for driveways and similar projects, medium-sized to fill ditches and help restore banks, to large stones necessary to protect shorelines from erosion and prevent people from entering dangerous waters. Delta Aggregate works on projects big and small, ranging from individual clients to government plans, so we are sure to have the rip rap that is right for your project.
