Joint-It Simple is a water permeable, cement-free, ready-mixed paving jointing compound made from a mixture of specialist, non-hazardous, sands and glues.

Technically, Joint-It Simple is a compound and is different to a traditional paving mortar or grout because of the type of glue used.  However, the terms mortar and grout are commonly used to describe many ready-mixed paving jointing products, including our unique Joint-It Simple.

Joint-It Simple comes in 3 colours – Neutral, Grey and Dark Grey. The lid on each bucket and a tick on the colour indicator on the side of each bucket of Joint-It Simple indicates the colour of the product inside.

Examples of a variety of natural stone paving can be viewed on our website with each colour of Joint-It Simple.

Joint-It Simple is used to fill the joints between natural stone and concrete paving slabs.

With Joint-It Simple you must use water.

The paving slabs must be wet before you tip out the product, otherwise Joint-It Simple may accentuate any natural discolouration in your paving slabs.

This is why Joint-It Simple can be applied in the rain, as well as in dry weather.

In cases where insufficient water has been used, Joint-It Simple may leave a residue that accentuates any natural discolouration in the stone.

This residue should weather-off over a period of 3-6 months. To avoid any potential problems when using Joint-It Simple, please watch our step-by-step video guide before you use our product.

Being ‘water permeable’ is very important because it means that water/rain won’t lodge on your patio; it will drain down through the joints that have been jointed with Joint-It Simple to prevent your patio from flooding. Rain won’t crack the joints between your paving slabs which is why we say that Joint-It Simple is weed resistant.

If you decide to power-wash your patio, the water won’t lift Joint-It Simple out of the joints once the manufacturers’ guidelines have been met  – it will drain down through the joints, which is why we say that Joint-It Simple is power-washer resistant.

We recommend that you avoid using a power-washer on your paving for a minimum of 30 days after applying Joint-It Simple.
