What time of Sand material is best to fill the joints in between pavers?

polymeric sand installation Gappsi.JPGPolymeric sand is best to use to fill the joints in between pavers. High quality polymeric sand will not leave any stains on the surface. Gappsi vibrates the pavers while sweeping which allows the send to fill the joints tight and also help the sand harden. Sweeping the excess sand off the pavers before wetting the sand is also very important. This prevents the glue that is in the sand to smear the pavers surface. Most importantly, applying a good urethane sealer will further help the sand to harden and prevent ants from digging into the paver joints and weeds from growing on patios.

The paving stone sizes were 6”x 9”, with a flamed and tumbled texture finish. These granite pavers are 1-1/4” thick and can be used for pedestrian and vehicular trafficked areas. The joints in between the pavers were filled with polymeric sand, then compacted with a mechanical vibratory plate and sealed.
