Re-Sanding Joints & the Benefits of Installing Polymeric Sand

Not everybody is familiar with the term polymeric sand. What is it? You may ask yourself. Well, most likely if you a have brick paver patio or a brick paver driveway you have polymeric sand in between the joints. That is IF there is still some left over from the many years of neglect.

Polymeric sand is used to fill in the joints in between brick pavers. It is a type of sand that is created by mixing fine sand, binders and additives that help lock pavers together in place. It is different than regular sand, because regular sand not only is it missing the additives that help lock pavers in place, but it can also easily be washed off from pavers joints with rain, therefore leaving the joints exposed to moss, weed growth, insects and paver shifting.

Re-Sanding Joints & the Benefits of Installing Polymeric SandRe-Sanding Joints & the Benefits of Installing Polymeric Sand

So, what are the benefits of having polymeric sand in your brick paver joints?

  • Better interlocking of pavers
  • Optimal joint stabilization
  • A more aesthetic appearance of paver joints
  • A long-lasting finish
  • Resistance against natural erosion
  • Prevents the growth of weeds and moss
  • Prevents insect infestation
  • It will withstand heavy vehicular traffic

As you can see the list of benefits is quite impressive. However, not following the proper steps for installation can turn your brick pavers into a mess and create a costly price tag to remove and correct the improper installation. We often encounter future clients with horror stories of unexperienced installers from landscapers, handyman, painters or even customers themselves who thought it was an easy DYI project and turned it into a costly nightmare. This is what separates us from the competition. We have implemented systems and step by step processes that our knowledgeable technicians will follow that will prevent and assure the best outcome for your brick pavers and wallet. “Do it once and do it right” has never been truer.

Polymeric sand goes great with a friend for a more durable finish. For more information on that please refer to our section on Sealing of Brick Pavers.

  • I sealed my pavers myself and did a horrible job. Amazing Paver stripped the old sealer and made my patio look brand new! The men who did the work were very professional and left the area around my patio spotless when they were finished. From start to finish I would highly recommend this company.

    Patio and walkway work was done professionally and on time. Antonio and Obed were very expert in everything they did and the results were outstanding. I was kept informed in all parts of the project and I could not be happier with the finished product. I would be happy to recommend this company to anyone . From start to finish everything was perfect!

  • Amazing Paver Restoration is beyond compare both in quality and value! My mother’s back patio was in desperate need of repair. She also had some decorative brick walls that separated her patio from her gardens. These walls were in far better repair than the patio and ,therefore, not on the “to do” list. BUT when Amazing Pavers gave her a quote to do everything, it was a price that was too good to pass up. The patio is nothing short of breathtaking and far better looking than the original patio ever was and 1/2 the price! This company is not like other companies. The same week the contract was signed, they were out working and all the work was completed in a little more than 48 hours. Impressive! Definitely the right choice if you’re looking for perfection at a price you can afford!

    Our experience from the first phone call to job completion was top notch. So nice, in this day and age, to find a contractor that not only responds but does so in a timely manner! Quality of the work was excellent and they kept us involved at each step of the process by asking questions to ensure our satisfaction. We highly recommend!

    We had the team restore our paver patio and steps, as they needed a facelift after 15 years. They did an impressive job of repairing the sunken areas, remounting the steps, replacing the paver retention strip along the perimeter, and finally sanding and sealing the pavers. It is a dramatic difference in appearance and we look forward to many more years of use. The team was responsive and professional, while performing excellent work at a fair price. I would certainly recommend them to any friends.

  • I’ve had some very bad experiences in the past in doing and repairing my paver driveway, so I was a little apprehensive about getting work done. My wife found Amazing Pavers doing work locally and I decided to give them a try to do needed repairs and sand work on my driveway. Josh was and is genuinely a nice guy. Timely, fair priced and stands behind his work are all appropriate when it comes to describing him and his company. Thank you Josh and your guys for doing such a great job!

    Elias and his team at Amazing Paver Restoration did an 'Amazing' job restoring my paver patio and adding a new firepit. They also re-did my front retention wall that had sunk and shifted over the years. Elias and his team are very meticulous and make sure everything is perfect, they are always on time and did a great cleanup after the job was completed. Amazing if very competitive on pricing and one of the best paver repair and install companies I have worked with.

  • We hired them and I was reluctant at first but it was probably the best investment I’ve mace in a very long time. It is night and day how much better my driveway and patio looks. Not only did they seal it and remove weeds, they leveled it which made such a dramatic improvement!

    As long-time homeowners, we've hired many vendors. Despite recommendations from friends & our own research, we've seldom been fully satisfied with their work---until now. Amazing Paver Restoration could not have been better. From the initial evaluation visit, to the restoration work, to the follow-up, APR was professional, concerned and competent. The initial evaluation was spot-on and there was no attempt at any up-sell. The individuals who performed the work were outstanding--- very careful and detail oriented, even going so far as to ensure that any disruption of the garden area adjacent to our patio was restored to its original condition. After the work was completed, we even received a telephone call from APR to check that we were satisfied with the work and to answer any questions we might have. It has been a very long time since we were as satisfied with any company as we are with APR. They truly were amazing!

  • The folks at Amazing Paver are just that- amazing! I've had a fair amount of experience with contractors, and I've not encountered a harder working crew. They did a full paver reset on our patio, replaced our crumbling back steps, and reused some of the old step pavers to tie it all together. Excellent workmanship, fantastic attention to detail, and a beautiful result. We couldn't be happier!

  • After going through a terrible experience with a patio company I struggled with trusting or hiring any other contractor. Amazing Paver Restoration changed my perspective on contractors. They communicated with me promptly. Gave me a very fair price. Restored my entire patio and it looks like brand new! I love my backyard again. I highly recommend AMAZING PAVER RESTORATION. Worth the wait!

    If you want your existing pavers restored or are considering a new paver install…look no further as Amazing Paver Restoration is the company you want to do business with. The entire team is very professional and are a pleasure to work with. My project consisted of a full restoration of existing pavers (500+ sqft), a new install (200+ sqft) and installation of multiple French drains to address downspout drainage issues. The process started with Josue and Maria regarding the quote, samples and installation timing. They were both top notch and extremely professional to work with. Then the work crew (Elias, Daniel & Uziel) came in and worked their magic with meticulous attention to every detail. The project started with 2 days of 100+ degree heat and ended with temps in the 70’s. Not one time did this crew miss a beat working 10-11hrs to get the job done ahead of schedule. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done. I highly recommend contacting Amazing Paver Restoration Inc for your next paver project.

  • We had Amazing Paver Restoration do a full reset of our 300 square foot paver patio (originally installed in 2003). The result is absolutely amazing and went far beyond our expectations - the patio looks brand new. The attention to detail by the crew was outstanding as well. We are so happy with how things went, we will be looking to have Amazing Pavers install a new walkway from our driveway to our fully restored patio in the backyard.
