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’s 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, it can easily be washed off from pavers joints with rain, therefore leaving the joints exposed to moss, weed growth, insects and paver shifting.

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

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.

  • review rating 5  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!

    review rating 4  Amazing Paver Restoration did a fantastic job! I will definitely use them again when the need arises. I also appreciated there responsiveness when I called. You would think it comes with the territory, but it's truly amazing how many businesses do not consider the customer first and take there sweet time calling back or not calling at all.

  • review rating 5  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!
