Why do you put sand in block paver joints?
Filling paver joints with sand is an integral part of the structure and it’s what gives a drive its strength and load bearing ability. Jointing sand helps hold the blocks in place and creates friction between the blocks. When cars are driven or parked on block paving this friction helps spread the weight.
Without the jointing sand it would mean the weight is concentrated onto individual blocks which are not able to withstand such extreme weight. They then begin to crack and the entire structure can suffer with loose blocks from a knock-on effect.
Using sand in the joints also prevents the ingress of large amounts of water which can cause the bedding sand to become waterlogged and destabilise block paving.
What is kiln dried sand?
Kiln dried sand is used as jointing sand between block and brick pavers. It is an extremely fine sand dried at high temperature and flows easily into the joints.
Truclean Plus are experienced at re-sanding block paving and can ensure this vital part of paving maintenance is done correctly.
