Paver Brick Patio Tip: Quikrete Powerloc Jointing Sand is Ideal for Paver Patio Projects

Leslie, I was watching your new program, Ugliest House on The Block, last weekend while waiting for a table at a local restaurant. There was a man installing a paver brick patio and he put a powdered sand mix on the stones and swept it into the gaps. Then he used a hose to wet it. What was that product called? I would love to get some but I can’t remember what it was. Any help would be great!

The Money Pit Answer

We normally use just plain sand to fill the gaps between paver stones. But there is a fantastic new product out from Quikrete that works even better than sand. It's called PowerLoc™ Jointing Sand, and it's a polymer-modified, graded sand specially designed for sweeping into paving stone joints. You can use it on interlocking pavers, bricks, patio blocks and concrete slabs. The non-staining sand hardens to lock pavers in place. You'll have a stable surface that is resistant to erosion, weeds and insects. Visit www.Quikrete.com for more info, and thanks for watching and listening!
