EASYJoint – The UK’s Best DIY brush-in patio grout!
EASYJoint brush in paving & patio grout, is a really simple way to fill the joints in paving slabs and flagstones. Market-leading EASYJoint is ideal for all types of paving such as natural stone, limestone, porcelain, sandstone, Yorkstone, Indian Stone, granite setts and concrete flags.
The benefit of EASYJoint brush in grout is that it’s simple to use for both domestic customers and commercial paving contractors, you simply soak the paving slabs with water then simultaneously sweep and wash the jointing compound into the joints. The paving joints are then completely filled without the need to kneel down and compress the grout into the joints by hand, saving your back and saving time!
EASYJoint results in a strong paving joint that withstands the elements, and lasts for years, what’s more the solid joint eliminates weed growth! EASYJoint brush in paving grout can be used whatever the conditions are, it’s suitable to be used in wet and rainy weather.

Please note: Whilst following the instructions carefully, if you do happen to make an error with EASYJoint, don’t worry, the only stain or picture framing that the jointing compound may potentially leave is linseed oil which will disappear and fade over time. By using lots of water when brushing the product in, it will ensure that any linseed oil will sit on top and simply get washed away! Detailed instructions on how to joint paving with our sweep in sand can be found inside the EASYJoint tub.

Frequently asked questions before using EASYJoint!
Does EASYJoint need a permeable sub-base?
Yes, EASYJoint must have a permeable and strong foundation (one that allows water to pass through to the ground below). Without a strong foundation the paving will move and the EASYJoint mortar will crack between the paving slabs. To ensure that EASYJoint does not fail, and there is no cracking between the joints, we recommend that the bedding and sub-base must be permeable, when using a bedding mortar mix, this should be no stronger than 6:1 (sharp sand: cement).
Do you need to use water when applying EASYJoint?
We cannot overly stress how important it is to use plenty of water before, during and after the application of EASYJoint. A hose with a fan type nozzle is perfect.
Does EASYJoint stain sensitive & porous paving slabs?
Many types of natural stone, such as Granite, Black Limestone and Black Porcelain can be extremely sensitive. These types of slabs have a greater risk of staining, picture framing and efflorescence from the bedding mortar used for the base or specialist joint fillers. Staining & efflorescence tend to appear post-installation, to avoid staining Granite, Black Limestone or Black Porcelain – it is strongly recommended to seal the paving with a breathable sealant before installation, but definitely prior to pointing with EASYJoint. A breathable sealer will provide protection during the jointing process and afterwards. It will also allow any efflorescence or natural salts present in the sub-base and substrate to pass through the paving material and wear off naturally over time. It is not caused by the use of EASYJoint.
How do I remove dirt, fungi and algae from EasyJoint?
Over time, as rain and surface water pass through the porous joints between the paving slabs, this can lead to a little discolouration, with Algae, Lichen and Fungi growing between your paving joints. This is entirely natural and will not impair the integrity of the product, but does cause discolouration. To remove any debris, algae, lichen or fungi from your paving slabs and joints, use a light pressure wash over the surface (no more than once a year, using a “fan” type nozzle no closer than 150mm/6 inches from the surface). This will clean the dirty joints, but protect the jointing compound from being removed. For paving that has a thicker coverage of dirt or fungi, we recommend a cleaning solution specifically targeted to the issue.
How soon can I use a pressure washer on my EASYJoint?
Do not use a pressure washer on the paving for at least 4 weeks after EASYJoint’s application. Always use a fan type nozzle at a 45 degree angle and no closer than 15 cms / 6 inches to avoid removing the jointing material from between your slabs.
Is EASYJoint suitable for patios and driveways?
EASYJoint is perfect for patios, paving and paths that only have pedestrian foot traffic, however will not withstand the weight of a car or larger van. We do not recommend EASYJoint for use on driveways due to the types of sub-base and bedding mortar needed.
Should I seal my paving slabs before using EASYJoint?
Sealing is particularly recommended for porous paving slabs and setts prior to laying and jointing with EASYJoint, to reduce the risk of staining or efflorescence. If sealer is applied after the patio has been laid, do not apply any type of sealer over the joint for at least a month after it has set hard. Only use a breathable sealer, otherwise EASYJoint may or may not remain permeable, and you may seal in any natural efflorescence passing through the stone. These natural salts will disperse over time.
Can you apply EASYJoint in freezing conditions?
Yes, theoretically EASYJoint can be used below 3 degrees down to freezing conditions, however in these conditions, the use of lots of water becomes more difficult with a greater risk of staining. Where possible avoid using below 3 degrees, use with caution.
Does EASYJoint stain paving slabs?
EASYJoint does not stain when the instructions are adhered to, during the application and laying process, footwear can pick up some EASYJoint particles. We advise cleaning the soles of them before walking across dried (or drying) paving to avoid leaving “footmarks”. Also do not use the same broom that was used to apply the EASYJoint to clear the surface afterwards; it will be contaminated and may leave marks.
