Frequently Asked Questions

What is jointing sand and why is it important in interlocking installations?

Jointing sand is a special type of sand used to fill the gaps between interlocking pavers. It plays a crucial role in stabilizing the pavers, preventing weed growth, minimizing water penetration, and enhancing the overall durability and aesthetics of the pavement.

How is jointing sand applied during the installation process?

After the interlocking pavers are laid, jointing sand is spread evenly over the surface. It is then swept into the joints between the pavers using a broom. Finally, the pavement is misted with water to activate the sand and ensure a solid bond.

What type of jointing sand is used in interlocking installations?

Polymeric jointing sand is commonly used in interlocking installations due to its superior strength and durability. It contains additives that harden when exposed to moisture, creating a strong bond between the pavers.

Will jointing sand prevent weed growth between the pavers?

Yes, one of the primary functions of jointing sand is to inhibit weed growth by filling the gaps between the pavers and creating a barrier that impedes weed seeds from germinating.

Can jointing sand withstand harsh weather conditions?

Yes, polymeric jointing sand is designed to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, including heavy rain, freezing temperatures, and UV exposure. It remains stable and intact, ensuring the longevity of the interlocking pavement.

How often should jointing sand be replaced?

With proper installation and maintenance, jointing sand can last for several years before needing replacement. However, factors such as heavy foot traffic, settling of the pavers, and erosion may necessitate occasional replenishment.
