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.

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.

  • 5 star review  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!

    5 star review  Terrific experience with Amazing Paver Restoration!! Josh and Maria were very responsive and super accommodating. The crew was exceptionally clean and diligent about protecting anything near their work area. They even helped us move a few pieces of patio furniture that were heavy! We will definitely be using this company again! Great Job guys!

  • 5 star review  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!

    5 star review  Service provided: restoration of driveway ribbons and sidewalk. From the initial contact to the completion of the work, I found Amazing Paver to be very professional. I was impressed with Josh when he met me to discuss the scope of the work to be done. He followed that with a professionally prepared Quote detailing everything. Conversations I had with the office were pleasant and informative. On the day of the job, they came prepared to work. Each worker was polite, friendly and patient with me when I asked questions about the job. There was no doubt they knew what they were doing. The end result exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend this company and give it 10 stars if I could.

    4 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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!

    5 star review  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!
