Description

As long as you put at least 5cm of water on top of the left-over grout in the tub, it keeps for about a year. Traditional mortar mixes are available and the product we review in this category is one of these. This is where the sand and cement are pre-mixed in the correct ratio and you just add water and stir. The grout dries hard enough to withstand your pressure washer and any weeds trying to get through from underneath, yet remains permeable enough to let water pass through it without pooling up. Covers an area from 2m 2 to 4.32 m 2 depending on the size of the slabs and the width and depth of the gaps between them.

The application method is Wash-and-Sweep, as firstly you will need to fully saturate the patio, especially right down into all the gaps between the stones. The manufacturer recommends using a garden hose or other water sprayer to make sure that the wet mixture reaches the bottom of the gaps. Once the gaps are full, turn the hose onto the patio stones off wash off the excess grout. This is useful where you aren’t sure of your maths in working out the ratio for yourself or you have only a small area to grout. It’s not really cost-effective for installing a complete patio; you are better off buying a bag of sand and one bag of cement and mixing them yourself. This mortar cement is pretty weatherproof – it stands up to temperatures between -30°C and +75°C and that covers all UK weather normally. This product stores well down to -15°C, especially if you cover the nozzle with adhesive tape to seal it. ProsOnce you’ve opened the bag of grout, you do need to use it up in just a few hours as it hardens in the bag. Make sure you’ve prepared your grouting area completely (power washing, moss removal etc.) before your start the grouting job and plan it all out carefully beforehand. Most of these types of grout state that you can even apply them in wet weather – useful in the UK summertime. After adding water and mixing well, apply the cement with a trowel to the gaps in your patio. You’re not constrained to a minimum size of gap as you are with the resin patio grouts; as long as you can get the cement in the gap, you are good to go. The mortar cement in the tube comes ready to use. Just squeeze/spray it out and apply through the nozzle. You can use this cement in any weather conditions, even wet weather and also put it on damp surfaces. After waiting for the mortar to cure, you can cover the grey colour with paint to make the group fit seamlessly into your stone colour.

Sika FastFix All-Weather Self-Setting Paving and Jointing Compound is an easy to apply (by sweeping it into the gaps) resin grout that dries hard in a matter of hours. It avoids puddling on your patio by letting water seep down through it but stops unsightly vegetation from growing by preventing weeds from coming through. And don’t worry about pressure washing your patio, but do try to avoid directing a strong spray on the grout. Sika FastFix All-Weather Self-Setting Paving and Jointing Compound is a resin grout suitable for your patio. There is no cement in this product and it looks like sand. It comes in a variety of grey and brown colours to match or contrast with your patio stones: Deep Grey, Charcoal, Flint, Dark Buff and Stone. The Bostik Cementone General Purpose Mortar is a standard cement mortar for those who like to go old school/traditional in their stonework.

That said, buying this Bostik Cementone mix does work out to be expensive if you plan on using it to install a new patio. It’s best used for small areas and repairs. As long as you seal the tub well, you can store the mix in a cool place indefinitely.
