Building sand is a soft mortar, ideal for most general DIY building jobs where a smooth, even surface is required, such as paving a patio or decking area in the garden. Building sand is extremely versatile and can be used as mortar for bricklaying, and plastering, as well as just about anywhere you need a flat surface comprising of a more flexible consistency of sand. Maxwells DIY has available Deco Pak building sand in quantities of 20kgs. We also offer building sharp sand which differs from regular building sand as it is more suitable for projects including concrete, such as block paving.
Sharp sand and regular building sand can be mixed in different ratios and amounts to suit the project at hand, especially when it includes flattening out a surface which will provide part of the foundations for a mixed concrete and wood build.
