At the UNIQUE Companies, we believe that our clients deserve nothing but the best, and that includes both the best workmanship and the best products that are available. For that reason, UNIQUE uses a product called Polymeric sand when installing any paver project. For only a slight increase in the overall cost, the benefits of Polymeric sand set pavers are incredible.
What is Polymeric Sand?
Sand is the material that masons use to fill the joints between pavers when building a patio, walkway or pool deck. The sand fills the small gaps and allows the pavers to be held in place to create a solid and secure surface. Polymeric sand combines a very fine sand along with silica and other products which form a binding agent. When the paver project is complete, the Polymeric sand is applied and swept into the joints between the pavers. Next, a gentle spray of water is applied to activate the binding agent and create a strong, solid bond and barrier between the pavers. [Read more…]
