Why do we recommend Biaxial Geogrid for subgrade stabilization?

Geogrid and Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric on site in Virginia Beach

We supply both biaxial and uniaxial geogrids.

Although there are a number of Civil Construction applications for uniaxial geogrid, we find that most of our customers need a geosynthetic solution for subgrade stabilization.

When it comes to poor subgrade, we will recommend biaxial geogrid nine times out of ten.

To understand the fundamental reason for why we use biaxial geogrids on site, we’re going back to the very beginning to explain how geogrid has evolved into the high strength product that it is today.

Product Spotlight: Fence Screen

Although we normally we supply Fence Screen for on-site perimeter control, we recently installed screen at our Oilville warehouse for the same reason. We chose a black screen with logo but your options are as endless as the applications. Learn more here

Employee Spotlight: Josh Souther

Josh Souther has been with our Colonial Construction Materials team for six years. Although his title is technically “Driver,” he is so much more than the name suggests.
Josh is a vital member of our operations and his work ethic is unparalleled.
He is always the first to arrive at our Oilville warehouse in the morning and on most nights, he is the last one to leave.
The sacrifices Josh makes to keep our operation running smoothly may go unnoticed by some but many of our regular customers have likely witnessed it first-hand. 
If you ever wondered who delivered the material to your site before the sun was even up and had your order waiting for you by the time you got to the job, Josh was that guy.
It is not uncommon for him to unload a full truck load of material by hand (without a forklift) and then re-stack the material neatly onto pallets for the customer.
Josh is committed to efficiency but would never sacrifice safety or customer satisfaction for time constraints. His excellent driving history is a testament to that fact.  
Despite his commitment to his job, he is equally committed to his family and home life. Josh and his wife have two kids, who keep him equally as busy at home as we do at work. When he isn't at Colonial you will find him at home, making improvements to his property, cooking, tending his garden or supporting his son in his many new athletic endeavors.
We consider ourselves very lucky to have Josh on our Colonial team!
